Drs. Matthew Kaufman, Andrew Elkwood and Michael Rose were published in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery in a study entitled Functional Restoration of Diaphragmatic Paralysis: An Evaluation of Phrenic Nerve Reconstruction. The study examines the efficacy of surgical intervention with the goal of restoring function to the phrenic nerve.
To quote the Invited Commentary section following the study:
The article from Kaufman and colleagues provides the strongest evidence to date in favor of a sea-change in how one might approach patients with diaphragmatic paralysis.
