These signs indicated partial but severe right brachial plexopathy at the postganglionic level, associated with total axonotmesis of the right axillary nerve. Because of its late onset and the predominance of pain compared to motor loss, a brachial neuritis such as Parsonage-Turner syndrome, sometimes reported following surgery, was ruled out.
However, this approach exposes the patient to an increased risk of axillary nerve injury if compared to the traditional deltopectoral approach [10, 11].
The majority of the glenohumeral joint is innervated by the suprascapular nerve (C5-C6; originates from upper trunk of brachial plexus) and the axillary nerve (C5-C6; originates from posterior cord of brachial plexus).
Parts of the starting point of deltoid muscle and the ending point of pectoralis major muscle were excised, and the brachial artery, median nerve, musculocutaneous nerve, axillary nerve, and radial nerve were remained.
Axillary nerve block may be performed via paraesthesia or trans-arterial techniques, as well as peripheral nerve stimulation or real-time ultrasound guidance.
