Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Trigeminal nerve injuries present complex clinical challenges and can be very distressing for patients, resulting in abnormal sensations of the oro-facial region, yet surgeons may lack the knowledge required for optimal patient management based upon the specific nerve injury. This textbook is the first to be devoted to the diagnosis and management of trigeminal nerve injuries. A wide range of topics are covered, including historical perspectives, demographics, etiology, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, clinical neurosensory testing, nonsurgical management, and surgical management and principles of microneurosurgery, specifically involving the inferior alveolar and lingual nerves. Algorithms and a glossary are provided that will assist in the clinical management of these complex scenarios. The authors include surgeons with considerable experience and expertise in the field who have previously published on the subject. This book will serve as an ideal clinical reference for surgeons with patients who sustain trigeminal nerve injuries.

Nerve And Vascular Injuries In Sports Medicine
Author: Venu Akuthota
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2009-05-28
Pages: 204
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The field of sports medicine covers a tremendous territory. Athletes present to their physician with everything from sprained ankles to bowel problems while running. Many of the classic textbooks in sports medicine cover many of these issues in a cursory way. Two major organ systems that account for many injuries in athletes are the nervous system and the vascular system. Because of their widespread, diffuse nature, athletes can present with myriad signs and symptoms related to these systems. Drs. Akuthota and Herring have done an outstanding job in their textbook Nerve and Vascular Injuries in Sports Medicine to produce a commonsense, yet thorough, approach to potential nerve and vascular injuries in athletes. The text provides any physician or clinician who evaluates and treats athletes with a clear path to an appropriate history, physical examination, imaging studies, and electrophysiologic and vascular examinations of any athlete with potential nerve or vascular injuries. The first third of the book describes the appropriate evaluation of athletes with nerve and vascular symptoms and signs. Emphasis is placed on kinetic chain contributions to nerve and vascular injuries to address not only the cause of the injury but possible associated, contributing biomechanical deficiencies. The last two-thirds of the book cover regional specific nerve and vascular injuries with special attention to stingers, thoracic outlet syndrome, lumbar radiculopathy, and compartment syndromes.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A thorough understanding of peripheral nerve injuries (PNIs) is necessary for clinicians who manage the medical care of athletes and decide when an athlete may return to competition. This comprehensive, detailed text will help you identify PNIs in their earliest stages and prevent the complications that can develop when these injuries are not diagnosed and treated correctly. Peripheral Nerve Injuries in the Athlete, featuring contributions from leading sports medicine physicians, is aimed at teaching you the necessary skills for early recognition of neurological deficit as a result of sport injury. You'll gain an understanding of basic neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of neurologic injury and recovery; which PNIs are associated with what sport; and available diagnostic procedures, their limitations, and when they should be ordered. Peripheral Nerve Injuries in the Athlete is designed to show you how to accurately diagnose PNIs and how to understand the difference between movements inherent in sport activities and movements resulting from injury. Part I of the book includes six chapters devoted to the anatomy, etiology, and diagnosis of PNIs that can affect athletes (including "industrial athletes"); and part II focuses on the prevention and rehabilitation of PNIs. The text also provides information on -physiology of nerve injury; -regeneration and recovery; -the role of electrodiagnostics in diagnosis and treatment; and -the role of bracing, orthotics, and the biomechanical modifications in preventing injury and reinjury. Helpful case reports are included in part I to illustrate how you can apply what you'll learn to real-life situations. In addition, tables listing innervations of peripheral muscles and joints act as ready references in discerning which muscles and nerves should be addressed during rehabilitation. Peripheral Nerve Injuries in the Athlete is a comprehensive resource that will provide you with the necessary foundation for detection, diagnosis, management, and treatment of PNIs.

A Novel Role For Neutrophils In Wallerian Degeneration After A Peripheral Nerve Injury
Author: Jane A. Lindborg

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Wallerian degeneration has been extensively studied in models of peripheral and central nerve injuries and diseases. Degeneration of the severed distal fragment has been considered an essential preparatory stage to the process of axonal regeneration. In fact, an important reason why regeneration is stunted in the central nervous system (CNS) is attributed in part to the low efficiency of clearance ofinhibitory molecules that obstruct regrowth. Conversely, in the peripheral nervous system (PNS), injured nerve fragments rapidly degenerate and are efficiently removed. Infiltrating CCR2+ monocyte-derived macrophages are thought to be indispensable for nerve debris clearance after injury. It was therefore unexpected when our lab discovered that the Ccr2-/- mouse, which lacks the primary receptor forinfiltration of hematogenous macrophages, displayed comparable myelin and axonal clearance to wild-type (WT) mice throughout a time course after sciatic nerve transection injury. This compensatory clearance mechanism was not an effect of constitutive loss of CCR2 throughout development because mice treated with an anti-CCR2 antibody (MC-21) displayed comparable myelin clearance to both WTand global Ccr2-/- nerves. Further characterization of the molecular and cellular differences between WT and Ccr2-/- mice revealed important differences both at the level of the axotomized neuronal cell bodies and at the distal nerve. We found that Ccr2-/- nerves display significantly higher levels of mRNA for the neutrophil chemokines CXCL1 and CXCL2, and a concomitant increase in the number ofinfiltrating neutrophils compared to WT nerves after injury. Phagocytosis assays revealed that neutrophils in Ccr2-/- mice compensate for the loss of macrophages to facilitate efficient Wallerian degeneration. Furthermore, nearly complete depletion of neutrophils using an anti-Ly6G blocking antibody severely inhibited myelin clearance in both WT and Ccr2-/- nerves, illuminating a pivotal role for these cells in mediating Wallerian degeneration. Interestingly, preliminary in vivo experiments indicate that nerve regeneration following injury is uninhibited in Ccr2-/- mice, and that neutrophil depletion may retard regeneration in Ccr2-/- mice, but not WT mice. These data could suggest that neutrophils may be playing a redundant role in supporting macrophages to foster nerve regeneration after a peripheral nerve injury.
