Overview

The field of sports medicine covers a tremendous territory. Athletes present to their physician with everything from sprained ankles to bowel problems while running. Many of the classic textbooks in sports medicine cover many of these issues in a cursory way. Two major organ systems that account for many injuries in athletes are the nervous system and the vascular system. Because of their widespread, diffuse nature, athletes can present with myriad signs and symptoms related to these systems. Drs. Akuthota and Herring have done an outstanding job in their textbook Nerve and Vascular Injuries in Sports Medicine to produce a commonsense, yet thorough, approach to potential nerve and vascular injuries in athletes. The text provides any physician or clinician who evaluates and treats athletes with a clear path to an appropriate history, physical examination, imaging studies, and electrophysiologic and vascular examinations of any athlete with potential nerve or vascular injuries. The first third of the book describes the appropriate evaluation of athletes with nerve and vascular symptoms and signs. Emphasis is placed on kinetic chain contributions to nerve and vascular injuries to address not only the cause of the injury but possible associated, contributing biomechanical deficiencies. The last two-thirds of the book cover regional specific nerve and vascular injuries with special attention to stingers, thoracic outlet syndrome, lumbar radiculopathy, and compartment syndromes.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anthony Joseph Ewald, M.D.(Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a clinical guide to neurologic and vascular injuries encountered in sports medicine. The first third of the book addresses anatomy, physiology, exam techniques, and diagnostic tools; the latter two-thirds address specific neuropathic syndromes.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide clinicians working in the field of sports medicine a concise overview of neurologic and vascular injuries in athletes. Given the frequent occurrence of these injuries and the relative lack of resources addressing them specifically, this is a worthwhile goal.
Audience: Sports medicine practitioners are the intended audience. It is especially helpful for team physicians and/or practitioners of nonsurgical sports medicine. Residents and fellows interested in sports medicine will also find it helpful. The two editors and 26 authors are authorities in the field.
Features: The book first addresses anatomy and pathophysiology of the neurologic and vascular system, as well as physical examination maneuvers and diagnostic studies for both the neurologic and vascular systems. The second third covers specific neurovascular syndromes of the upper limb and the final third addresses specific neurovascular syndromes of the lower limb. This book is one of the first of its kind to address these injuries specifically in the context of sports medicine and it includes a welcome emphasis on rehabilitation. The illustrations are generally well done and augment the text. There is some overlap of the content from chapter to chapter. The vast majority of the book focuses on neurological, as opposed to vascular, pathology. Evidence-based recommendations do not exist for some topics.
Assessment: This is a unique, high-quality book that will be quite useful to practitioners of sports medicine. A similar book, Peripheral Nerve Injuries in the Athlete, Feinberg and Spielholz (Human Kinetics, 2003), covers neurological conditions but not the vascular component.
From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“This book is useful for healthcare practitioners treating athletes. It has a good overview of anatomy and pathophysiology and has a diverse content spectrum. The book skillfully guides the reader through a plethora of nerve and vascular injuries and gives sound recommendations on proper sports medicine management related to such injuries. I would recommend this text to any healthcare practitioner who manages athletes with potential nerve and vascular problems.” (Jairus J. Quesnele, Journal ofOrthopaedic& Sports Physical Therapy, Vol. 41 (10), October, 2011)
