The diagnosis of brachial plexus disorders in dogs a review of twenty two cases


, : The diagnosis of brachial plexus disorders in dogs a review of twenty two cases. Journal of Small Animal Practice 27(3): 147-158

Conditions affecting the brachial plexus in dogs are described. The clinical details of 22 cases are reviewed, of which 16 were traumatic lesions and six were tumors. The salient features of the neurological examination which provide the diagnosis and the signs which reveal the extent and nature of the lesion are described. The role of other ancillary diagnostic aids including electromyography, radiography and myelography are discussed.

Twenty patients with complete brachial plexus lesions were reviewed approximately nine and a half years after injury. Thirteen were amputees and seven had received no surgical treatment.

The results of pre-operative examination are described and myelography is considered to be especially impo...

Objective: Brachial plexus injury complicates 0.6-2.6 per 1,000 live births. Surgery is sometimes advocated for patients who fail to improve with conservative management. We reviewed the available literature on birth-related brachial plexus palsy...
