    Abstract

    Three cases are presented in which neurosurgical reconstruction of a Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy was combined with orthopaedic reconstruction of a posterior glenohumeral dislocation. The authors believe that a combined procedure is indicated if the neurological deficit meets the criteria for neural reconstruction and the complication of a posterior glenohumeral dislocation has occurred prior to nerve surgery. Two children with C5-6 lesions and a third child with a pan-plexus lesion obtained good shoulder function following the combined reconstruction.
