Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Scapular position and size deficiency is evident in obstetric brachial plexus paralysis (OBPP) patients due to the absence of balanced muscular forces acting on the scapula. Scapula stabilization (SS) procedures aim to restore a balanced musculature and anatomic position and to augment shoulder function and enhance developmental potential.

CONCLUSION:

Dimensional discrepancies and functional outcomes are improved by SS procedures. Maximal results are attained in patients who have undergone both primary and secondary shoulder reconstruction before age 2.

KEYWORDS:

Obstetric brachial plexus paralysis; Scapula stabilization; Scapular bone growth; Secondary shoulder reconstruction; Shoulder function
