Purpose: The purpose is to address current issues related to the practice of peripheral nerve surgery.
Audience: Neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and general surgeons are the target audience. The authors are experts in the field with a great deal of personal experience in peripheral nerve surgery.
Features: Seven authors contribute the 24 chapters in this book. As in the previous edition, the authors address multiple diagnostic methods of peripheral nerve injury and repair methods. This is a complete guide to peripheral nerve injury patterns and surgical techniques derived from the authors' multiple years of experience. The new chapters on anesthetic techniques and iatrogenic lesions are superb and address common and some avoidable. This is a definitive reference for any surgical and neurosurgical libraries.
Assessment: This is an excellent addition to any neurosurgical or surgical departments and should be an integral part of these departments' libraries.
