  • A postfixed brachial plexus has nothing to do with whether (A) and (B) corroborate each other.

I was reviewing some material when I came across the following text:
"Neither cervical spondylosis at C6-7, nor an EMG that suggested a C8 radiculopathy corroborate[d] each other."​
But then someone wrote (about the quote above):
"That does not take into account that a lower cervical radiculopathy can result from injury to the center of the spinal cord, or could be explained for by a post-fixed brachial plexus."​
I am confused.
Anyone familiar with this?
Thanks in advance of for your help.
Sincerely,
