Mechanism of Injury to Right Brachial Plexus
Mechanism of Injury to Right Brachial Plexus

This exhibit illustrates the movement that creates the situation in which the shoulder is caught and the brachial plexus is stretched. The top images include a sagittal section showing the infant being pulled down and outwards while the shoulder is caught against the pubic symphysis and a zoomed inset of the damaged brachial plexus. The bottom image further illustrates how the infant is taken out in a downwards lateral motion from a head on view.
