Injury Description, Date, extent, surgical intervention etc:37 year male from the Netherlands, TBPI in Sept. 1996 with C8TH1 avulsion on my not dominant right arm. Nerve grafts reconstruction from leg in Nov. 1996 didn't help a lot, no hand, wrist, biceps or triceps function, only some sense. Now planning a operation to amputate above the elbow and get a bionic arm (myo electric prosthesis) with a target muscle reinnervation in Vienna around Nov 2015

How about amputation to get lost of the arm which is burden to me? I have no serious PLP and function in my right arm but now after 19 years I can get a myo prothesis after amputation. I still have some signals in my arm and in Vienna they can operate me with Targeted Musscle Reinnervation (putting my biceps en triceps in my chest and connect it).

Too bad the myo prothesis has no finger control and is not able to 'reach' for things. But hey, it is a lot better.
