Part of the Neurosurgery by Example
series, this volume on peripheral nerve disorders presents exemplary cases in which renowned authors guide readers through the assessment and planning, decision making, surgical procedure, after care, and complication management of common and uncommon
disorders. The cases are divided into four distinct areas of peripheral nerve pathology: entrapment and inflammatory neuropathies, peripheral nerve pain syndromes, peripheral nerve tumors, and peripheral nerve trauma.
Each chapter also contains 'pivot points' that illuminate changes required to manage patients in alternate or atypical situations, and pearls for accurate diagnosis, successful treatment, and effective complication management. Containing a focused review of medical evidence and expected outcomes, Peripheral Nerve Surgery
is appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about this subspecialty, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oral examination.
