ABSTRACT
Disturbances of the surrounding vascular system and the severe cicatrical entrapment of the injured plexus should be considered, with its neural damage, in brachial plexus injury by Gun-Shot. Therefore, Subclavian arteriography and Subclavian venography before operation should be essential and the correction of the deficit of the vascular system may be a factor in the determination of prognosis in relation to pain control. We have reported 2 cases of the brachial plexus injury by Gun-shot and discussed the importance of Subcalvian arteriography and Subclavian venography. External neurolysis seems to be beneficial in Causalgia caused by brachial plexus injury.
