Nerves and Nerve Injuries is the first comprehensive work devoted to the nerves of the body. An indispensable work for anyone studying the nerves or treating patients with nerve injuries, these books will become the ‘go to’ resource in the field. The nerves are treated in a systematic manner, discussing details such as their anatomy (both macro- and microscopic), physiology, examination (physical and imaging), pathology, and clinical and surgical interventions. The authors contributing their expertise are international experts on the subject. The books cover topics from detailed nerve anatomy and embryology to cutting-edge knowledge related to treatment, disease and mathematical modeling of the nerves. Nerves and Nerve Injuries Volume 1 focuses on the history of nerves, embryology, anatomy, imaging, and diagnostics. This volume provides a greatly detailed overview of the anatomy of the peripheral and cranial nerves as well as comprehensive details of imaging modalities and diagnostic tests. Detailed anatomy of the peripheral and cranial nerves including their history and ultrastructure Comprehensive details of the imaging modalities and diagnostic tests used for viewing and investigating the nerves Authored by leaders in the field around the globe – the broadest, most expert coverage available

Originally published in 1942 and updated in 1953, this edition is packed with everything a physician should know about peripheral nerve injuries. Peripheral Nerve Injuries contains detailed description of the anatomy of the peripheral nervous system and the techniques used to test the various portions of the peripheral nervous system by physical examination. The basics of muscle testing as well as the relationships of the muscles to the nerves are still as utilitarian today. Topics included in Peripheral Nerve Injuries: -General principles of the composition of segmental nerves, plexuses and peripheral nerves -The innervation of skin and muscles by spinal segments -The distribution of peripheral nerves -Innervation of the skeleton, and disorders of bones and joint tissues resulting from nerve injuries -Manifestations of peripheral nerve injuries -An analysis of the movements tested in neurological examination -Classification, causes and symptomatology of peripheral nerve injuries -And much more.

Since the highly praised first edition of Surgical Disorders of the Peripheral Nerves was published in 1998, greater understanding of the the molecular and cellular events which underlie the response of nerves to injury, regeneration and neuropathic pain has been achieved. This second edition has been fully updated in line with new clinical knowledge, and also incorporates the extensive study of thousands of surgical case studies spanning repairs of the supraclavicular plexus in the adult, the birth lesion of the brachial plexus,compound nerve injury and iatrogenous injury. Beginning with the fundamentals of the anatomy and function of the peripheral nervous system, and working its way through various types of injury, operative methods, the regeneration and recovery of nerves, surgical reconstruction, pain, and rehabilitation, this eloquently written work provides the reader with the solid understanding required to successfully perform surgery on the peripheral nervous system. Dr Shelagh Smith, joined by Dr Ravi Knight, has rewritten the chapter Electrodiagnosis. Professor Tara Renton has written a new chapter on injuries to the trigeminal nerve in maxilla-facial and dental work. The drawings, by Mr Philip Wilson, are new. Most of the 700 illustrations are also new. This thorough and authoritative look at the surgical treatment of the peripheral nerves is fully illustrated throughout with exquisite line diagrams and clear, instructive photographs.
