Master all of the blocks required for orthopaedic anesthesia, including both single-injection and continuous nerve blocks! This text and its companion DVD thoroughly review the anatomy points you need to know to effectively execute these techniques, and demonstrate all 16 essential nerve blocks as performed by specialists in orthopaedic anesthesiology. Abundant full-color photographs of the sequence of each block – combined with full-color drawings and photographs of cadaver sections of the applied anatomy – help to ensure proper needle placement for each procedure.

• Presents anatomy and techniques from a variety of perspectives through anatomical drawings, gross anatomy images, and photographs of surface anatomy – ensuring proper needle placement for each nerve block.

• Uses a practical, “how-to” approach that makes the latest techniques easy to learn.

• Covers problems and pitfalls to help you avoid potential complications.

• Shows you how to perform both single-injection and continuous nerve blocks, and demonstrates the anatomical responses gained from percutaneous stimulation of the nerves, via videos on the companion DVD.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tariq M. Malik, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book is a perfect combination of text and pictures that describes all the commonly used blocks in orthopedic surgeries.
Purpose: The aim of the author, as stated in the preface, is to provide static and dynamic anatomy visually. There are many books that deal with regional anesthesia and anatomy of peripheral nerves, but none makes a point of narrating the dynamic anatomy of the nerves. This is the very thing one needs to make blocks work.
Audience: The book is meant for every anesthesiologist who practices regional anesthesia. It is especially useful for the anesthesia residents and medical students as it is very well illustrated and has only pertinent text. The author is a well known authority in the field of regional anesthesia.
Features: Chapters one to 10 deal with the anatomy of brachial plexus at different levels from the interscalene groove to the elbow, followed by a simple and clear description of nerve block technique at that level. Chapters 11 to 18 cover lower extremity blocks from lumbar plexus to the ankle and maintain the same format of applied anatomy of the nerves followed by block technique description. All chapters on anatomy contain images of scleratome and dermatome. In addition, many cadaver images of nerve pathways provide a clear concept of anatomical structure around the nerves, which would have taken a lot of text otherwise. The step-by-step block description is accompanied by a picture for each step for every block. This makes the whole book truly an atlas of nerve block techniques and not just an atlas of peripheral nerve anatomy. The book fulfills its mission. The accompanying DVD is well narrated and does not miss any step in the description of block techniques. The book is not big on ultrasound images, but then that was not the author's intention and this does not take away anything from it.
Assessment: This is a complete regional anesthesia textbook. It is concise, clear, and well illustrated. It is practical and handy to the point that one does not need any other book to practice regional anesthesia successfully.
From the Publisher
"It is practical and handy to the point that one does not need any other book to practice regional anesthesia successfully."
-Doody Enterprises, March 2008

"The book has an accompanying DVD. It complements the text and reinforces the factual material…The audiovisual is clear and the picture resolution is excellent. The book is very well written, with excellent illustrations, annotations, and photographs. The reviewer highly recommends this book to all anesthesiology or Non-anesthesiology trainees…For the individual practicing anesthesiologist, this is an excellent procedure-orientated reference source to enhance major regional nerve block skills for orthopedic surgery." -Anesthesiology, August 2008
