Abstract

17 patients with brachioplexopathy caused by additional cervical rib underwent surgical decompression of neural and vascular bundle above the clavicle, additional cervical rib was removed. In 5 patients system for chronic electrical stimulation of structures of brachial plexus "Ney-Si-3M" (VEL, Kyiv, Ukraine) was implanted. Combination of decompression and chronic electrical stimulation of structures of brachial plexus allowed us to achieve positive results in 100% of patients: recovery of lost motive and sensory functions, decrease of pain syndrome severity.
