Most brachial plexus lesions are traction injuries sustained during birth, but in adolescents and older people they are usually caused by traffic accidents or following a fall in the home. A minority are the result of penetrating injury after civilian assault or trauma encountered during wartime. Birth palsy cases (obstetric brachial plexus palsy) and the remaining cases (traumatic briachial plexus palsy) are viewed differently with regard to treatment and outcome and so these two groups are usually discussed in separate chapters. In this paper we treat both groups in parallel because as far as primary (= nerve) surgery is concerned, many treatment problems and solutions are present in both groups and are therefore comparable.
