Musculocutaneous nerve: Originates from nerve roots C5-C7 and flexes muscles in the upper arm, at both the Brachial Plexus Lesions and elbow. Some patients complain of a burning or freezing sensation and hypersensitivity of the skin along the ulnar aspect of the hand.
The roots The five roots of the brachial plexus are the five anterior rami of the spinal nerves C5, C6, C7, C8 and T1. Vasomotor and tropic changes as a bone Diagnosis :• During the delivery of a baby, the shoulder of the baby may graze against the pelvic bone of the mother.
Signs and symptoms of more-severe injuries can include:• The three posterior divisions of the trunks C5-C8, T1 reform into the posterior cord• Radiographic features Fluoroscopy Conventional myelography is performed via intrathecal injection of iodinated contrast media. But some injuries can cause temporary or permanent problems, such as:• Prognosis and Treatment The natural course of radiation injury to the brachial plexus is variable. However, Mondrup et al  were unable to demonstrate myokymia in any of their 17 patients with RBP.
In such cases, the orthopedic surgeon conducts frequent and thorough examinations over the first three to six months following the injury and performs additional imaging and electro-diagnostic tests, as needed. In a post fixed plexus, the contribution by T1 is large, T2 is always present, C4 is absent, and C5 is reduced in size. Personal or familial history of neoplasm, radiation, chemotherapy, demyelinating disorders, diabetes or previous brachial plexopathy• Methods This retrospective analysis included all the patients undergoing MDZ for post BPA brachialgia over 5 years period 2012-2018 at our institution.
I prefer to fully evaluate each patient before advanced imaging or Brachial Plexus Lesions tests are ordered, so that a customized approach can be mapped, and unnecessary or duplicate testing avoided.
Avoid burns or cuts, as you may not feel them if you're experiencing numbness.
Natural history of obstetric brachial plexus palsy: a systematic review. The absence of pain, paresthesia, dysesthesia, and lymphedema suggests radiation injury. At the lateral border of the middle scalene muscle, the C5 and C6 spinal nerves form the superior trunk, C7 forms the middle trunk, and C8 and T1 form Brachial Plexus Lesions inferior trunk.

However, if infection, trauma or neoplasm is a primary consideration, contrast should be administered to delineate the extent of involvement and to assess for potentially drainable collections.
