Risk Factors for Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy Attributed to Anatomy, Physiology, and Evolution.

Clin Anat 2021 Apr 27. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Clinical Radiology & Imaging Science, Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

The inherent variable anatomy of the neonate and the uniquely-shaped maternal birth canal that is associated with the evolution of human bipedalism, constitute risk factors for neonatal brachial plexus palsy (NBPP). For example, those neonates with a prefixed brachial plexus (BP) are at greater risk of trauma due to lateral neck traction during delivery than those with a normal or postfixed BP. Compared to adults, neonates also have extremely large and heavy heads (high head:body ratio) set upon necks with muscles and ligaments that are weak and poorly developed. Read More
