  • Long Thoracic Nerve Palsy

    Abstract The authors report a case of long thoracic nerve (LTN) palsy treated with two-level motor nerve transfers of a pectoral fascicle of the middle trunk, and a branch[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Long thoracic nerve palsy is a medical condition involving the damage of the long thoracic nerve, due to an acute injury to the nerve itself, or other circumstances not related[symptoma.com] […] join beneath the scalenus medius muscle to form the upper division of the nerve, which emerges from the scalenus medius about 1cm posteriorly and superiorly to the upper trunk[nerveclinic.co.uk] The most frequent pattern is for the long thoracic nerve to arise from the dorsal surface of the distal portion of C6, just before the latter melds into the upper trunk.[neupsykey.com] We conclude that a thoracodorsal to long thoracic nerve transfer results in good functional recovery of the serratus anterior muscle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
