Abstract

Exploration and repair of the brachial plexus and its branches demands a good comprehension of its intricate anatomy. To this end, landmarks for identifying this anatomy may prove useful to the clinician and surgeon. As such, a specific collection is lacking in the literature. Therefore, the following review of salient surgical anatomy and regional landmarks of the brachial plexus and its branches is provided. Our hopes are that these data will be useful during clinical and surgical procedures of these regions and act as a single, concise source for such information.
