Medical History

Mr. Zhao is a 54 year-old man from mountainous region of Hebei province. He plays a very important role in his family, and is the main person that makes money to support the whole family. On July 19th 2017, he accidently fell from 3 meter high place when he was building the house for his nephew. He was unconscious, could not move upper limbs and right lower limb after the accident.

After 14 days treatment at a local hospital, there was no obvious improvement except for right lower limb movement has slightly recovery, his bowel control was poor.

Then he was transferred to one hospital in Beijing and was diagnosed as bilateral brachial plexus nerve injury. The doctors there think the surgical risk was high and recovery rate was extremely low, and he will spend all his life in bed.

Based on his former test results, BPIH’s medical team excluded brain injury and high paraplegia. To confirm his diagnosis, we decided to repeat MRI and find the exact injured nerves. During the MRI scanning, Dr. Yanni Li worked closely with the MRI specialist.

At the same time, neural nutrition and medication were applied.

Aug 3rd the 2nd day of hospitalization

Lead by Dr. Yanni Li, a multiple disciplinary consultation was held to study the patient’s symptoms and investigations. During the consultation, brachial plexus injury was excluded, considering the patient’s symptoms and MRI results.
