Shoulder Dystocia with Brachial Plexus Injury
Shoulder Dystocia (Brachial Plexus Injury). This medical illustration series features a vaginal delivery using a forceps device to extract the infant's head from the mother's birth canal. As force is exerted, the baby's shoulder is trapped on the mother's pubic symphysis causing shoulder dystocia to the nerves of the arm and shoulder. An inset focuses on the brachial plexus injury.
