Zavanelli: It's a maneuver of last resort in cases of severe shoulder dystocia. I can think of at least 1 other circumstance in which an obstetrician might be desperate enough to think of using the Zavanelli. If there was a very short umbilical cord and/or a nuchal cord that was so tight that it could not be cut without risking injury to the baby. I don't know of any such case reports but it's possible. ...Read more

Severe labor problem: Shoulder dystocia occurs when the baby's head is delivered vaginally but the shoulders take more than a minute to deliver. This can cost the baby its life, brain or nerves, or it may only cause a fracture and mild perinatal injury.

Serious complication: Shoulder dystocia occurs when the baby's head delivers but the shoulders are too big to come through. This results in injury to the chest outlet (fracture of the clavicle), arm (fracture of the humerus) and/or the nerves traveling from the neck to the arm. Some of the nerve injuries are permanent and result in congenital arm paralysis. This dire complication occurs in large babies and/ big mothers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Complex question: This has to do with where the nerve tear occurred. The ganglion is just off the spinal cord and shoulder dysytocia brachial plexus injuries can occur before or after. Preganglionic injuries tend to have a poorer outcome and can cause a related horners syndrome as well. Because of where the injury is, there tends to be less spontaneous healing or surgical options. I hope this answer helps. ...Read more

If : If you have compression fractures, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease in your back, it's likely the same processes are occurring in your neck.

He/she may want to arrange an MRI of your neck. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The quicker the recovery the less likely an impact on iq. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
