Overview

Bolster your knowledge of minimally invasive techniques and add new procedures to your repertoire with the third edition of the Atlas of Interventional Pain Management. Noted authority Steven D. Waldman, MD, JD provides consistent, concise, and clear advice on the safest, most clinically sound techniques. All chapters—including 20 new ones—feature CPT codes for each procedure, indications, relevant anatomy, technique, side effects and complications, and clinical pearls. The full-color illustrations and procedural videos on DVD ensure that you have the detailed guidance you need to provide your patients with the safest and most effective treatment.

• Covers every standard interventional procedure performed in clinical practice today, giving you all the guidance you need to implement safe, effective treatments to achieve the best possible outcomes.

• Provides lavish, detailed illustrations that highlight the key steps in each procedure to help you integrate interventional techniques into your practice.

• Pairs line drawings with CT, MR and/or radiographic images to illustrate relevant points in the text.

• Features step-by-step instructions, full-color anatomical diagrams, CPT codes, and clinical pearls—for every procedure— making it quick and easy for you to find the answers you need so you can maximize your success rate and reduce complications while.

• Covers new developments and recent advances in 20 new chapters on radiofrequency lesionings, decompression techniques, compression techniques, nerve blocks, percutaneous discectomies, percutaneous kyphoplasty, sacral nerve stimulation, cervical cordotomy, and dorsal root entry zone (DREZ) lesioning techniques.

• Incorporates updates on the most current procedural information, including additional fluoroscopic images that demonstrate the use of this promising modality for guiding needle and catheter placement.

• Includes 10-15 videos on DVD, each 5-10 minutes in length, that demonstrate interventional pain procedures, as well as preparation of the patient, alternate approaches, and indications and contraindications.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tariq M. Malik, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a pretty comprehensive collection of pain procedures which are usually performed in a pain clinic. This update of the 2004 edition has 20 additional chapters encompassing new procedures and includes a DVD which demonstrates 10 procedures.
Purpose: The book is meant to teach technical aspects of procedures. It is supposed to be a self help manual of pain procedures. These are very worthy objectives but I am not sure if they have been completely met. The procedures are discussed in very broad terms rather than in a detailed fashion. A lot of nitty-gritty details are missing.
Audience: It is targeted at interventional pain physicians. Many pain fellows will find it very useful, and it includes a few blocks which would be of interest to regional anesthesia practitioners. The author is well known in the field of pain medicine and has many pain books to his credit.
Features: The book's 147 chapters are grouped into eight sections, each of which covers blocks related to one region of the body. The last section contains advanced interventional techniques and covers topics like disc procedures, vertebral augmentation techniques, neuraxial neurolysis, and pump implantation methods. Each chapter covers one pain procedure and discusses indications, relevant anatomy, procedural aspects, and complications. The text is simple and pertinent, and is supplemented by illustrations and fluoro images. Every chapter ends with a paragraph of clinical pearls in which the author tries to make important clinical observations about the procedure and to reiterate important points. The provision of CPT codes with every block also is very helpful. Any chapter can be read under ten minutes. The DVD provides useful real-time visual experience of a few procedures. Somehow, there is no chapter on joint injections, nor is there any discussion of ultrasound guided blocks. There is too much stress on illustrations to explain the blocks when they should have been depicted on real pictures of patients with more fluoro images. Quite a few fluoro images are not clear. Discussions of the blocks are missing quite a few technical details and I doubt anyone can do the procedures solely by reading this book.
Assessment: This is a good book to have in the office to refresh one's memory before doing an uncommon block. However, in no way will it help teach anyone to do a block if one has not done that block under supervision, especially the advanced interventional pain procedures. Illustrations are good, but fluoro images are insufficient for quite a few procedures. The book lacks a discussion of pulsed radiofrequency. The DVD may be a nice visual aid, but it adds nothing to readers' knowledge because it is poorly directed and viewers cannot see a procedure actually being done in a step-by-step fashion.
From the Publisher
“To produce a book which simply gathers together almost 100% of the interventions we offer and delivers straightforward, no nonsense know-how is, in a word, genius…For those who feel it is time to debunk this whole subject and get something effectively done about their patient’s pain, get this book and study it…This Atlas is a pain specialist’s essential.” -British Journal of Anaesthesia, review of the previous edition
Long K. Han
This is an atlas of regional anesthesia in interventional pain management written by Dr. Stephen Waldman. The author, who is a director of a pain consortium and a clinical professor in the University of Missouri, intended this atlas to be a concise reference that provides a ""how-to-do-it"" approach to all practitioners of algology. The intended audience is pain medicine practitioners. Organized into subsections based on structural human anatomy, this atlas provides hand-drawn illustrations of all major interventional regional blocks. The clearly illustrated figures are accompanied by concise text that emphasizes a practical approach and clinical ""pearls."" Of note, the atlas does not provide a reference for its textual content. I found this book to be an essential reference for regional blocks not only for the pain management patients, but also the operative patients of any daily anesthesia practice. I highly recommend it as a practical source of reference for clinicians at all levels.
