Shoulder Dystocia and Brachial Plexus Injury
This stock medical exhibit depicts the mechanism of shoulder dystocia and brachial plexus injury. The first image shows the infant with the shoulder impacted on the maternal pubic symphysis, the mother's legs held up in the McRobert's position, fundal pressure applied, and excessive lateral traction placed upon the fetal head. An inset view shows the fetal head and neck in greater detail.
