Focal Peripheral Neuropathies by John D. Stewart Book PDF Summary
Fully revised and updated, the Third Edition of this respected text continues to provide complete and current information on the sites, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of focal lesions of the peripheral nervous system. Detailed coverage of individual nerves emphasizes normal anatomy, pathology, and diagnosis. While this edition retains the easy-access organizational framework of prior editions, many more clinical figures have been added to aid readers in improving diagnostic accuracy. Close attention is given to the latest imaging techniques, electrodiagnostic testing methods, and intraoperative electrophysiologic recordings. Early chapters review the gross anatomy and structure of peripheral nerves, the physiologic sequelae of various types of nerve damage, the abnormalities found in electrodiagnostic tests, and the work-up for patients with focal neuropathies. The remaining chapters address the courses and anatomical relations of various nerves, identify the types and sites of lesions, and discuss the investigation and management of specific focal neuropathies.
