Welcome to the Narakas Symposium 2019

On behalf of the members of the Leiden Nerve Center it is with great honour and pleasure that we like to invite you to join us in our beautiful old university town, Leiden, the Netherlands in 2019.

Alex Muset and Joan Pi organised the last symposium in sunny Barcelona on 25th – 27th February 2016.

The treatment of brachial plexus injuries is the main focus of the Leiden Nerve Center. The Leiden University instituted a Chair for Nerve Surgery in 2011 and the Dutch authorities have officially declared the Leiden Nerve Center as a Center of Expertise for the treatment of Brachial Plexus lesions. 

We feel very much committed to the Narakas Club which we consider to be the international platform for exchange of the latest knowledge on Brachial Plexus lesions. We have received tremendous input from the Narakas meetings over the decades, both scientifically as well as in personal relations with the participants. It is our wish to deliver our share and we will do our utmost to organize a successful meeting
