Essential Clinically Applied Anatomy of the Peripheral Nervous System in the Limbs is designed to combine the salient points of the anatomy of the PNS with typical pathologies affecting the nerves of the upper and lower limbs. The peripheral nervous system is the division of the nervous system containing all the nerves that lie outside of the central nervous system. This book is a quick reference guide for those studying and treating neuromuscular disease such as neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, as well as for clinical neurophysiologists. The reader will be presented with easy-to-access facts about the anatomy of the nerves in the limbs, coupled with clinically applied scenarios relevant to that area being discussed, as well as clinical findings on examination. The purpose is to provide the reader with a succinct presentation of the relevant anatomy of the PNS in the Limbs, directly applicable to day-to-day clinical scenarios. Essential Clinically Applied Anatomy of the Peripheral Nervous System in the Limbs presents the reader with an easy access format to clinically applied PNS anatomy perfect for quick reference to essential details. The chapters will review nerves of the upper and lower limbs, the origin(s), course, distribution and relevant pathologies affecting each will be given, as relevant. The pathologies will present typical injuries to the nerves of the PNS, as well as clinical findings on examination and treatments.
