About this book


Narakas, one of the pioneers in brachial plexus surgery, made major contributions to the further development of this type of surgery. Thus, his highly instructive drawings of 60 different types of lesions (traction and/or compression lesions, lacerations, gunshot, iatrogenic, and obstetric lesions, tumours and irradiation lesions) and proposed reconstruction procedures as well as clinical and postoperative patient data are a very helpful learning aid for both new and more experienced brachial plexus surgeons. Anatomical variations of the lesions, the problem and the surgical treatment are presented, and clinical data and follow-up of the patients are included with each lesion.
