Brachial Plexus

The Brachial Plexus is a complex network of nerves extending from the neck to the armpits, responsible for transmitting signals from the spinal cord to the upper limbs. Comprising roots, trunks, divisions, cords and branches, this intricate structure enables sensory and motor functions in the shoulders, arms, and hands. The five roots originate from cervical spinal nerves C5-C8 and thoracic nerve T1.

Damage or injury to the Brachial Plexus can result in severe neurological conditions like Erb’s palsy or Klumpke paralysis. Medical interventions such as physiotherapy and surgery are often employed to restore functionality after injury. In anatomy and neurology studies, understanding its precise formation and function remains central.

This nerve network also plays a vital role in various surgical procedures for upper limb operations. Its extensive reach across multiple muscle groups necessitates finely detailed knowledge for effective medical practice. Despite its complexity, it represents an integral component of human nervous system functioning.
