While in plastic surgery reconstructive procedures for the restoration of the anatomy of the brachial plexus, in it’s state prior to the trauma, are being performed , not all cases can be treated successfully because the number of donor graft nerves is low. For this reason, nerve transfer procedures are being performed. During these procedures an expendable donor nerve (from another body location) is rerouted and connected to the site of the damaged nerve stump in order to restore its function. The nerve transfers are divided according to the location of the donor nerves into intraplexal nerve transfers (transfers within the brachial plexus itself) and extraplexal ( donor nerve originates from outside the brachial plexus) .
In our clinic for plastic, hand and reconstructive plastic surgery we perform all possible and necessary procedures for the most effective reconstruction of the shoulder, arm and hand function.
