The introduction of the operating microscope as a surgical tool revolutionized the treatment of peripheral nerve lesions. A new era thus began in the early 1960s, which led to a substantial improvement in the management of nerve lesions. The results of nerve grafting techniques have demonstrated that, independent of the length of the defect, lesions can be successfully bridged. The free tissue transplants with microvascular anastomosis have also opened new, rewarding possibilities for peripheral nerve reconstruction procedures, facilitating the achievement not only of satisfactory anatomical but also of satisfactory fUhctional results. In order to evaluate the state of the art and reflect retrospectively on 25 years of microneurosurgical treatment of peripheral nerves, numerous outstanding scientists and clinicosurgical physicians were invited to Hanover in order to exchange their viewpoints and experiences. An active und fruitful discussion resulted which dealt with the many aspects of anatomy, pathology, clinical and neuro physiology, diagnosis, and with the surgery and physiotherapy which constitute modern-day peripheral nerve lesion treatment. The excit ing ongoing experimental and clinical activities have led us to support the wish and idea to publish the scientific exchange which took place during the Hanover symposium. I truly believe that the articles presented in this book cover so many interesting subjects concerned with peripheral nerve lesions that the book will serve the interested and dedicated physician involved with such cases as a reference work for the basics and also provide him with the therapeutic guidelines to assist him in his daily work.

Originally published in 1942 and updated in 1953, this edition is packed with everything a physician should know about peripheral nerve injuries. Peripheral Nerve Injuries contains detailed description of the anatomy of the peripheral nervous system and the techniques used to test the various portions of the peripheral nervous system by physical examination. The basics of muscle testing as well as the relationships of the muscles to the nerves are still as utilitarian today.

A thorough understanding of peripheral nerve injuries (PNIs) is necessary for clinicians who manage the medical care of athletes and decide when an athlete may return to competition. This comprehensive, detailed text will help you identify PNIs in their earliest stages and prevent the complications that can develop when these injuries are not diagnosed and treated correctly. Peripheral Nerve Injuries in the Athlete, featuring contributions from leading sports medicine physicians, is aimed at teaching you the necessary skills for early recognition of neurological deficit as a result of sport injury. You'll gain an understanding of basic neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of neurologic injury and recovery; which PNIs are associated with what sport; and available diagnostic procedures, their limitations, and when they should be ordered. Peripheral Nerve Injuries in the Athlete is designed to show you how to accurately diagnose PNIs and how to understand the difference between movements inherent in sport activities and movements resulting from injury. Part I of the book includes six chapters devoted to the anatomy, etiology, and diagnosis of PNIs that can affect athletes (including "industrial athletes"); and part II focuses on the prevention and rehabilitation of PNIs. The text also provides information on -physiology of nerve injury; -regeneration and recovery; -the role of electrodiagnostics in diagnosis and treatment; and -the role of bracing, orthotics, and the biomechanical modifications in preventing injury and reinjury. Helpful case reports are included in part I to illustrate how you can apply what you'll learn to real-life situations. In addition, tables listing innervations of peripheral muscles and joints act as ready references in discerning which muscles and nerves should be addressed during rehabilitation. Peripheral Nerve Injuries in the Athlete is a comprehensive resource that will provide you with the necessary foundation for detection, diagnosis, management, and treatment of PNIs.

Since the highly praised first edition of Surgical Disorders of the Peripheral Nerves was published in 1998, greater understanding of the the molecular and cellular events which underlie the response of nerves to injury, regeneration and neuropathic pain has been achieved. This second edition has been fully updated in line with new clinical knowledge, and also incorporates the extensive study of thousands of surgical case studies spanning repairs of the supraclavicular plexus in the adult, the birth lesion of the brachial plexus,compound nerve injury and iatrogenous injury. Beginning with the fundamentals of the anatomy and function of the peripheral nervous system, and working its way through various types of injury, operative methods, the regeneration and recovery of nerves, surgical reconstruction, pain, and rehabilitation, this eloquently written work provides the reader with the solid understanding required to successfully perform surgery on the peripheral nervous system. Dr Shelagh Smith, joined by Dr Ravi Knight, has rewritten the chapter Electrodiagnosis. Professor Tara Renton has written a new chapter on injuries to the trigeminal nerve in maxilla-facial and dental work. The drawings, by Mr Philip Wilson, are new. Most of the 700 illustrations are also new. This thorough and authoritative look at the surgical treatment of the peripheral nerves is fully illustrated throughout with exquisite line diagrams and clear, instructive photographs.

Diagnostic sonography of the peripheral nervous system is an evolving specialty of musculoskeletal ultrasound. This book provides an in-depth description of sonographic examination technique - how to access an individual nerve with sonography and how to interpret local findings. A particular focus is on sonographic-anatomic correlations. All currently possible clinical applications are addressed, including the evaluation of nerve compression syndromes, traumatic lesions, tumors, and postoperative complications. The book contains a huge number of high-quality patient sonograms, all derived from cases with clinical and in many instances surgical correlation.
