Canalicular syndromes description

Pronator teres syndrome Entrapment of the median nerve at the proximal forearm anteriorly. Is rare. It is a sensitive affectation in the palm aspect of the first three fingers and a skin disorder of the thenar eminence.   Carpal tunnel syndrome Is the most common canalicular syndrome of the upper extremity. Is a compression of the median nerve at the wrist. It produces changes in the palmar sensitivity of the[...]

Canalicular neurological injuries

Introduction Nerves are those anatomical structures ranging from the spinal cord to the muscles and other organs of the limbs. They are organized in different anatomical structures depending on the location they occupy in the limb. At the root of the limbs, when them emerge from the spinal cord, nerves form plexus that are branched, forming trunks and terminal branches that will provide the innervation to the[...]

Outlet thoracic syndrome. FAQ

From the extensive experience of Dr. Muset in the treatment of thoracic outlet syndrome in Muset Institute we want to solve the most frequent questions about this syndrome. If the compression that occurs in the thoracic outlet syndrome is due to a morphological issue and I have always had it, why it has not hurt me before? Because the decrease of space and the appearance of compression[...]
Thoracic outlet syndrome

Thoracic outlet syndrome

It is defined as a brachial plexus and their escorting vascular structures compression, during their itinerary through the neck until they leave the thorax. This pass is narrow because of its anatomical form, but occasionally rib variations may be found, that difficult neurovascular structures path. In addition, space size would change according to arm position or lifting weight. There are two types of compression, permanent or static[...]
Adult spastic paralysis

Adult spastic paralysis

What is adult spastic paralysis? In adults, spastic paralysis usually results from a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), usually expressed as spastic hemiplegia affecting ipsilateral upper and lower limbs. The diagnosis is clear and defined. The evolution and prognosis require monitoring over time. Thus, stabilization of the lesional spasticity can be seen after a period of 6 months, during this period of time the injury is a flaccid paralysis. The[...]
Infantile Cerebral Palsy. Treatment

Infantile Cerebral Palsy. Treatment

In infantile cerebral palsy (ICP), increased steady tone due to uncontrollable spasticity affects the locomotor function in both upper and lower limb. Muscle retractions, joint deformities and paralyzed deficits must be successfully treated with minimally invasive microsurgical procedures, or joint techniques if required. The biomechanically complex upper extremity requires a serial study of films to establish specific mechanisms of the abnormal movements of the PCI and define[...]
Infantile Cerebral Palsy

Infantile Cerebral Palsy

Infantile Cerebral Palsy is a stable neurological injury (non evolutionary non degenerative) of the central nervous system, affecting first motoneuron, which projects its axon (or nervous termination) to a muscle. During first months of live it is not easy to detect this paralytic injuries. Firstly they start with a  flaccidity process during several months, progressing in two possible ways: to a non controlled increase in muscle[...]
Traumatic brachial plexus palsy. Treatment

Traumatic brachial plexus palsy. Treatment

In traumatic brachial plexus palsy you can only achieve functional outcomes using microsurgical reconstruction of the plexus. Microsurgical reconstruction is the only solution to obtain a good functional result in this type of injuries. Superior area arm paralysis has a good functional prognosis; arm involvement paralysis could require multiple procedures. Vascular, bony or joint injuries must be assessed urgently.  Deferred nervous injuries are treated in a three[...]
Traumatic brachial palsy

Traumatic brachial palsy

Traumatic brachial palsy is a brachial plexus injury resulting in partial or total paralysis of the entire upper extremity. Mostly it is an injury that occurs in adults, related to traffic accidents, labor, sports or knife attack or fire. The impact on children is very low. The surgeon must assess injuries during the first month of the accident to determine the scope of damage and for the[...]
Doubts in obstetric brachial palsy

Doubts in obstetric brachial palsy

This FAQ are born from our team’s experience during our work in helping brachial plexus paralysis patient’s healing and sharing with them and their parents all the journey. Globalised neurologic injury How is it possible, in this century, with all the scientific advances than children born with brachial plexus palsy? Obstetrical brachial plexus palsy is an uncommon injury compared with other pathologies. Its frequency is 0,005 of each[...]
