Traumatic brachial plexus injuries (TBPI) are highly debilitating, often resulting in life-long disability and neuropathic pain. Justin Wisely and his co-authors from the University of Michigan Neuromuscular Lab @umichplasticsurgery evaluated the ideal timing to perform spinal accessory nerve-to-suprascapular nerve transfer using a rat model. He and his co-authors found that early surgical intervention following TBPI substantially improves functional outcomes and that surgical delays can result in loss of the optimum regenerative window.
