This multiauthor text is, according to the blurb on the back cover, a
practical, comprehensive, and up-to-date volume that offers "today's
best knowledge on the treatment of nerve injuries" in the upper
extremity. It is, indeed, a quite comprehensive volume, covering nerve
repairs, grafts, conduits, flaps, and other options, including tendon
transfers, with separate sections on compression neuropathies, brachial plexus
surgery, and electrodiagnosis. The text is heavily illustrated with color
figures and superb artwork, but it is no "how-to" atlas. Instead,
each of the twenty-two chapters covers a topic from the perspective of that
author, including, to varying degrees, pathology, relevant anatomy, and
surgical (and on occasion, nonsurgical) techniques, indications, and results.
Most chapters are illustrated with case examples.
