DOGLIOTTI, Andrés Alejandro. Current concepts in perinatal brachial plexus palsy: Part 1: Early phase. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2011, vol.109, n.4, pp.347-353. ISSN 0325-0075.

The incidence of perinatal brachial palsy is similar to that of other frequent conditions in children's orthopedics. The treatment has been traditionally conservative with pediatric follow-up and consultations with various specialists to deal with its sequelae. Its natural history and treatment are controversial. Sequelaes tend to appear earlier each time, so that it should be attended to in checkups and taken into consideration in therapeutic tactics at the same time as nerve repair. This paper includes an analysis of its clinical classifcation and nerve recovery parameters, essential to decide whent to start an exploration of the plexus.

Keywords : Perinatal brachial plexus palsy; Brachial birth palsy; Obstetric brachial plexus palsy; Brachial plexus injuries; Microsurgery; Reconstructive surgery.
