About this book

Presenting step-by-step procedures written by experts in the field, this comprehensive clinical guide discusses the diagnosis (electrodiagnostic and ultrasound) and management of compressive neuropathies of the upper extremity. Compressive (or compression) neuropathy, also known as entrapment neuropathy or trapped nerve, is a common condition of the upper extremity in which the nerves of the arm – median, ulnar and radial being the most common – are compressed, causing pain and discomfort as well as possible pathological and anatomical changes. Carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome are the most well-known and treated, with nerve release and decompression surgeries being the usual treatment, though the variety of neuropathies and management strategies goes beyond these conditions.

Chapters included describe in detail the latest, cutting-edge management strategies for the various manifestations of compressive neuropathy of the hand and wrist – carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, ulnar nerve syndrome, radial tunnel syndrome, pronator teres syndrome, Wartenberg’s syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome and suprascapular neuropathy – as well as revision carpal and cubital tunnel surgical treatment options. Plentiful intraoperative photos and detailed illustrations, along with clinical case material and pearls and pitfalls, make this the ideal resource for orthopedic, hand and plastic surgeons aiming for the most optimal outcomes.
