The image below shows a Brachial plexus root avulsion injury.
Brachial plexus root avulsion injuries, seen in the above image, can be devastating. They usually result from high-speed accidents. Nerve transfer provides hope for the successful treatment of this difficult set of injuries. In neurotization (nerve transfer), a healthy but less valuable nerve or its proximal stump is transferred in order to reinnervate a more important sensory or motor territory that has lost its innervation through irreparable damage to its nerve.
