Young surgeons, even those practicing peripheral nerve repairs and attracted by brachial plexus lesions, are sometimes in trouble in understanding the state of the art of brachial plexus surgery, especially when confronted with high level meetings such as the Narakas Club, where this topic is discussed in depth amongst experts. 

Thus,  we have decided to organize a  Course on the basic approach to brachial plexus lesions (from diagnosis to principles of treatment) for young surgeons wishing to start to understand and to go into details of such a complex problem.
