The site and type of brachial plexus injury determine the prognosis for individuals with Erb’s palsy. For avulsion and rupture injuries, there is no potential for recovery unless surgical reconnection is made in a timely manner. For neuroma and neuropraxia injuries, the potential for recovery varies.

What’s the problem?
The prognosis of Erb’s palsy refers to the likely outcome of the condition, which may include:
- its duration
- the chance of complications
- probable outcomes
- prospects for recovery
- recovery period
- survival rates
- death rates
Additionally, other outcome possibilities can affect the overall prognosis of Erb’s palsy. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
Based on the site of the Erb’s palsy injury- the type of injury will affect the prognosis given. In the most serious injuries (rupture and avulsion injuries) the ability for recovery is less likely, especially if surgical Erb’s palsy treatment for reconnection does not occur immediately.
All children will be affected in different ways, and the Erb’s palsy treatment must consider the individual to best determine a more specific prognosis. Even with continual treatment, some patients will never completely recover, though functioning can be greatly increased.
