Clinical outcomes following brachialis to anterior interosseous nerve transfers.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The surgical management of lower brachial plexus injuries remains a challenging problem. Although nerve transfers have improved clinical outcomes following brachial plexus injuries, the majority of work has focused on upper trunk injuries.
