Background: Brachial plexus injury is an advanced and devastating neurological injury, for which both nerve surgery and tendon transfers sometimes remain insufficient in restoring normal movement. Stem cell therapy may be applicable to rescue the injured motor neurons from degeneration which potentially improves muscle strength.
Study Design: Systematic Review; Level of evidence V.
Data Sources: A systematic literature search was conducted on PubMed (MEDLINE), EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and Scopus using the terms (“stem cell”) AND (“brachial plexus”) as search keywords.
