Introduction: Obstetric brachial plexus palsy is related with shoulder dystocia, and its main risk factor is macrosomia. Its incidence is estimated to be between 0. Most cases are resolved but can give rise to permanent functional deficiency, which means that there is an interest to identify possible prognostic factors. Patients and methods: We conducted a descriptive study of newborn infants with obstetric brachial plexus palsy born in our hospital between the years and Maternal, perinatal and obstetric variables, as well as the type of lesion, were collected and were related with the possibility of recovery at six months. Results: Altogether 32 cases were diagnosed, which represents an incidence of 1.

Introduction: Obstetric brachial plexus palsy is related with shoulder dystocia, and its main risk factor is macrosomia. Its incidence is estimated to be between 0. Most cases are resolved but can give rise to permanent functional deficiency, which means that there is an interest to identify possible prognostic factors. Patients and methods: We conducted a descriptive study of newborn infants with obstetric brachial plexus palsy born in our hospital between the years and Maternal, perinatal and obstetric variables, as well as the type of lesion, were collected and were related with the possibility of recovery at six months.
Results: Altogether 32 cases were diagnosed, which represents an incidence of 1. The antecedent of shoulder dystocia was related with a poor prognosis for recovery. Conclusions: The incidence of obstetric brachial plexus palsy has remained stable in recent years. The percentage of children who present sequelae at six months is significant.
Prospective studies are needed to be able to establish the long-term prognostic factors of this pathology. Title: Paralisis braquial obstetrica: incidencia, seguimiento evolutivo y factores pronosticos. La paralisis braquial obstetrica se relaciona con la distocia de hombros, y su principal factor de riesgo es la macrosomia.
Su incidencia se estima entre 0,1 y 6,3 casos por 1. La mayoria de los casos se resuelve, pero puede provocar deficit funcional permanente, por lo que es de interes identificar posibles factores pronosticos. Pacientes y metodos.
Se han recogido variables maternas, perinatales, obstetricas y del tipo de lesion, y se han relacionado con la posibilidad de la recuperacion a los seis meses. El antecedente de distocia de hombros se relaciono con mal pronostico de recuperacion.
