The Second Edition follows up on the interest generated by the successful first edition with more syndromes, more illustrations, updated references, and new chapters. The purpose of the book remains the same-to provide a quick overview of the definition, anatomy, etiology, clinical symptoms and signs, and treatment of tunnel syndromes. The new edition continues to probe the origins of these painful syndromes and to propose the possible causes that lead to them.
The Overview section introduces the significance of tunnel syndromes and offers a new chapter devoted to the neurophysiology and electrodiagnosis of compression syndromes. It includes information on basic electromyography analysis, nerve conduction velocity testing, problems with electromyography interpretation, and the clinical use of electrodiagnostic tests. Part I presents tunnel syndromes of the upper extremities, Part II is devoted to the trunk, and Part III discusses the lower extremities. The final section addresses how particular tunnel syndromes affect athletes. For each syndrome, the etiology, clinical symptoms and signs, and treatment are examined in detail.
Orthopedists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, sports medicine specialists, occupational and physical therapists, and medical doctors and students will all find the Second Edition of Tunnel Syndromes to be an essential update for their reference libraries.
