Editorial review—J Bone Joint Surg Am “Humeral retroversion in children with shoulder internal rotation contractures secondary to upper-trunk neonatal brachial plexus palsy”

Authors: Scott H. Kozin


The article entitled “Humeral Retroversion in Children with Shoulder Internal Rotation Contractures Secondary to Upper-Trunk Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy” was reviewed in detail. Children with brachial plexus palsy often develop internal rotation contractures about the shoulder. Standard treatment options have addressed the glenohumeral joint without attention to humeral version. In addition, there are conflicting reports regarding alterations about humeral version and the glenohumeral joint in children with brachial plexus palsy.
