Peripheral Nerve Entrapments: Clinical Diagnosis and Management

Free sample

Featured as a single volume, this is a comprehensive guide to possible nerve entrapment syndromes and their management. Each chapter covers a single nerve, or group of closely related nerves, and goes over the clinical presentation, anatomy, physical exam, differential diagnosis, contributing factors, injection techniques, neurolytic/surgical techniques, treatments of perpetuating factors, and complications.
Nerve entrapments can occur throughout the body and cause headaches, chest pain, abdominal pain, pelvic pain, low back pain, and upper and lower extremity pain. As an example, one of the most common forms of nerve entrapment syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, affects roughly 1 in 20 people in the United States, and is only one of several types of entrapment syndromes possible for the median nerve.
Chapters are also extensively illustrated and include 3D anatomical images. The additional online material enhances the book with more than 50 videos - at least 2 for each nerve. This enables readers to easily navigate the book. In addition to a conventional index it includes a “Pain Problems Index” for searching by symptom. Peripheral Nerve Entrapments: Clinical Diagnosis and Management is a long-needed resource for pain physicians, emergency room physicians, and neurologists.

Comprehensive in scope and packed with practical information, Intraoperative MR-Guided Neurosurgery contains detailed coverage of this state-of-the-art technology from the pioneers who developed it. Renowned neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists combine their collective wisdom and experience to demonstrate how MR-guided neuronavigation can be used to view real-time images of a patient's brain during surgery to help remove tumors with greater precision.The authors provide step-by-step descriptions of how to perform procedures, including advice based on their clinical results. Readers will learn about the advantages and drawbacks of the various MR imaging systems, clinical indications for MR-guidance, anesthesia considerations, safety concerns related to working in a magnetic environment, and much more.Features:In-depth coverage of all MR imaging systems helps readers to make informed choices about which technique will best suit their surgical needsGuidelines on the most appropriate imaging sequences for the resection of different types of brain tumorsMore than 200 high-quality intraoperative photographs taken during actual procedures to orient readers who want to use MRI in the operating roomTips from the experts on safety issues, suitable magnet designs and field strengths, cost and benefit analysis, room design, equipment, and logisticsDiscussion of other forms of technology that have been combined with intraoperative MR-guidance, such as focused ultrasound, neurosurgical robotics, and other promising innovationsThis leading-edge text has everything that neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and interventionalists need to know to implement an intraoperative MR-guided neurosurgery program.
