Abstract

We report a case of development of a movement restricting heterotopic ossification after a free functioning gracilis muscle transfer performed for elbow flexion in a patient with pan bxrachial plexus palsy. We also present the management of the case including the repair of the brachial artery which was thinned out by the lesion. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case in literature which reports heterotopic ossification after a free functioning muscle transfer.

Keywords: Heterotopic Ossification; Free Functioning Muscle Transfer; Brachial Plexus Injury
