Overview

First book in exploding field of USPM Written by world's leading experts Profusely illustrated with 465 figures (350 in full color) Step-by-step coverage of procedures Covers US-guided pain blocks in acute perioperative and chronic pain clinic settings Includes section on US-guided musculoskeletal applications Atlas of Ultrasound-Guided Procedures in Interventional Pain Management is the first book devoted to the new, rapidly expanding field of ultrasound-guided pain medicine (USPM). It is aimed at physicians who manage acute and chronic pain syndromes who are beginning to use US-guided pain procedures and would like to shorten their learning curve. Among the target groups are pain physicians, anesthesiologists, physiatrists, rheumatologists, neurologists, orthopedists, sports medicine physicians, spine specialists, and interventional radiologists. Features:
• Step-by-step guidance from the world's leading USPM experts in their area of subspecialty expertise
• Coverage of acute perioperative pain, chronic pain clinic settings, and MSK applications
• Sections on spine injections; abdominal and pelvic blocks; peripheral nerve blocks and continuous catheters; and MSK ultrasound
• Tips for improving needle visibility under US (e.g., choosing and applying the transducer; introducing the needle; and confirming appropriate needle placement)
• Essentials of US knobology
• Sonoanatomy relevant to peripheral nerve blocks, muscle and joint injections
• Beautifully illustrated spine sonoanatomy chapter
• 465 figures, 350 of which are in full color

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tariq M. Malik, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This excellent book on the techniques for ultrasound-guided pain procedures covers all injections, including for the spine, joint, and peripheral nerves, that have ever been described.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a textbook of ultrasound-guided pain injections. The first book of its kind, it fills a great void in this field.
Audience: It is essentially intended for pain physicians who practice interventional pain medicine. It also can be a great asset for other physicians who do diagnostic or therapeutic acute or chronic pain injections such as rheumatologists, neurologists, emergency physicians, or physiatrists. Despite the many experienced contributors, the editor is successful in maintaining the same level of quality throughout the book.
Features: The introductory first section covers the basics of ultrasound machines and ultrasound waves and discusses in depth the art and science of different techniques to improve needle visibility during pain procedures. Subsequent sections deal with different regions of the body — the spine, abdomen-pelvic region, peripheral nerves, musculoskeletal - with a final section on the use of ultrasound in peripheral nerve neuromodulation. The section on the spine is most impressive, covering both regular and sonoanatomy in great detail. All spinal and paraspinal injections, from top to bottom including sacroiliac joint injections, are covered. The musculoskeletal section covers all main joints and bursa injections commonly done in a pain practice. All the routine peripheral nerve blocks and catheter placements used in the acute setting are covered. All chapters follow a similar format and end with a very good reference list. Each clinical chapter covers anatomy of the block, indication for the block, limitations of current injection techniques, sonoanatomy, ultrasound-guided injection techniques, and, finally, a literature review of the technique. The description of techniques is quite good, covering all the important steps like patient position, probe selection, needle visualization, and end points for successful injections. This focused book is a great leap forward in the field of ultrasound-guided pain medicine. The book is quite detailed with many illustrations, but for an atlas, there is relatively more text than images. The pictures and images are very clear, but in real life, few patient images have such clarity. The authors would have done their readers a service if they had included a host of images from different patients for the same procedure to show the scope of variability. The addition of pictures showing the placement of the probe to complement the ultrasound images also would have added more clarity. But, as the editor suggests, the book cannot teach anyone how to do a block unless that person is already very skilled in handling ultrasound probes and reading ultrasound images.
Assessment: It's hard not to be impressed with this book. It is a must read for anyone who practices ultrasound-guided pain injections. The chapter on spine sonoanatomy is a thing of beauty and it alone makes this book a must buy.
