Algorithm for Bionic Hand Reconstruction in Patients with Global Brachial Plexopathies (image) Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group Share Print E-Mail Caption Algorithm for bionic hand reconstruction in patients with global brachial plexopathies. The long arrow pointing downward indicates the order of clinical steps of the algorithm. If two electromyographic (EMG) signals are detected during EMG signal identification, the third step (nerve transfer and/or free functional muscle transplantation) is left out (curved arrow).
