Surgical Treatment of Parsonage Turner Syndrome With Primary Nerve Transfers: A Case Series and Cadaver Dissection.

Abstract Parsonage Turner syndrome is the onset of chronic, acute pain, and subsequent nerve palsy. Following the absence of clinical and electrodiagnostic recovery at 5 months from onset, we present 4 cases of PTS surgically treated surgically with primary nerve transfer and neurolysis of the affected nerve. Neuropathy in two patients with complete axillary neuropathy underwent surgery between the nerve branch leading to the lateral head of the triceps and the anterior/middle deltoid nerve branch of the axillary nerve. Two patients with partial FDP to the index finger underwent neurorrhaphy in the FDP2 nerve branch and an extensor carpi radialis brevis nerve branch, as well as the FDP2 nerve branch. 3 separate nerve fascicles of the AIN converts FPL, FDP2, and pronator quadratus can be retrieved for reinnervation by a fascicular nerve transfer, according to the cadaver dissection. Patients with PTS with neurolysis alone are vulnerable to functional recovery.

Shoulder palsy following SARS-CoV-2 infection: two cases of typical Parsonage-Turner syndrome.

Background and purpose Coronavirus disease 2019 is now known to cause neurological disorders in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Two new cases of suspected neuralgic amyotrophy or Parsonage-Turner syndrome following coronavirus 2 infection are reported here, with detailed electrophysiological and imaging pathological signs, underlining the potential connection between COVID-19 and PT syndrome. Case 1 was a 45-year-old schoolteacher with acute pain in the right shoulder a few days after SARS-CoV-2 disease, including shoulder abduction and elbow flexion weakness. He complained right shoulder pains after symptom onset and had a difficult time lifting his right arm, revealing unusual deficit of the serratus major muscle with a right scapula winging. Discussion Parsonage-Turner Syndrome caused by SARS-CoV-2 appears to have clinical, electrophysiological, and MRI characteristics similar to classic para-infectious PT syndrome, including the time frame between viral infection and neurological symptoms onset.

Parsonage-Turner Syndrome of Unclear Causation: A Case Report.

Parsonage-Turner syndrome, also known as idiopathic brachial plexopathy or neuralgic amyotrophy, is a rare condition that presents acutely with acute, patchy, unilateral shoulder pain followed by various degrees of fatigue and muscle atrophy in the upper extremity musculature. Here, we discuss a case of PTS in a 67-year-old male with overlapping cervical and rotator cuff pathology following an apparent orthostatic episode with no known cause of injury. This case study not only adds to the literature on the importance of close examination and potential etiologies of PTS, but also highlights close collaboration among specialties in order to prevent misdiagnosis.
