Encyclopedia > Medial cord

The Medial cord is a division of the brachial plexus. The brachial plexus is an arrangement of nerve fibres (a plexus) running from the spine (vertebrae C5-T1), through the neck, the axilla (armpit region), and into the arm. ...


The medial cord gives rise to the following nerves:

It is usually around this time that the medial umbilical cord is discarded because it is of no further use.
Medial umbilical cord blood can be cryogenically stored either for your child's personal use or donated to public blood banks.
It has been scientifically proven that human umbilical cord blood keeps it's potency for at least 15 years under these circumstances but because these tests only began 15 to 20 years ago it is more than conceivable that this period could, in actual fact, be much longer.
