It is now more than 50 years that the surgery of Brachial Plexus is a reality.
Unfortunately , if the repair of upper lesions ( C5-C6 or C5-C6-C7 ) gives reasonably good results , the complete lesions of the plexus still represent an unsolved problem.
Two surgeons with a wide experience : Pr. A. Gilbert and Dr P. Raimondi have joined their experience to give their thoughts on this difficult subject .
They have together operated more than 2500 patients with brachial plexus lesions, over more than 30 years and have experienced all the techniques available . This site is a summary of this experience .
