Brachial Plexopathy Following Laparoscopic Gynecologic Surgery: a Case Series
, ,
Abstract
Brachial plexopathy secondary to prolonged malpositioning of the upper extremity is a rare but well-known post-operative complication with potentially significant medico-legal implications. The rise in the number of laparoscopic and robotic procedures requiring prolonged periods in Trendelenburg may lead to the increased incidence of this condition. We present three patients with reversible injury to the upper trunk of the brachial plexus that developed during laparoscopic gynecologic surgeries performed in the Trendelenburg position
