The book presents a problem-based, rational approach to the diagnosis of orthopaedic problems in children. It is divided into four sections based on the age at which specific problems may be encountered; the newborn and infant, the toddler and the pre-school child, the child in the school-going age and the adolescent. The authors outline a systematic approach to arrive at a tentative diagnosis by asking relevant questions related to the presenting symptom and then performing a thorough clinical examination. They then suggest the most appropriate investigations to confirm the diagnosis. Each chapter deals with the common conditions that may lead to the problem; the rarer causes of the problem are listed at the end. This feature would make the book a practical manual and a high quality reference source. An important feature of the book is the number and quality of illustrations and video clips in the electronic version.

This book addresses the severe knowledge deficit in peripheral nerve amongst neurosurgeons, however this topic represents an integral part of the oral board examination. The book employs a case based approach with the highest-yield scenarios for oral boards, primarily focusing on nerve entrapments, trauma and tumors. Thanks to its question and answer format, the reader is encouraged to think about the cases and questions as if taking the real exam before they check the answers. The work also includes common pitfalls, a section on nerve examinations including video recordings, and a section on important clinical findings that should be diagnosed from the picture. The book not only serves neurosurgeons, but also plastic surgeons, orthopedists, and neurologists.

This booklet, in A to Z format, is a succinct but wide-ranging guide to the use of MRI for investigations of the knee joint. It provides easily retrievable answers to the questions that arise frequently during daily radiological practice. All relevant injuries and disorders are covered, typically with brief descriptions of pathological and clinical characteristics, guidance on selection of imaging technique, identification of potential diagnostic clues, and highlighting of useful tips and tricks. In addition, practical, state-of-the-art information is provided on other aspects of relevance. Characteristic images are included as necessary. Knee Imaging , published within the series A-Z Notes in Radiological Practice and Reporting , will be of value for both residents and general radiologists. Beyond assisting in MR reporting, it will help examination candidates in their preparation.

This concise, well-illustrated monograph explains the true pathogenesis, hitherto unsolved, of five key pain syndromes of the arm and describes diagnosis, indications for surgery, surgical techniques and results. The syndromes in question are tennis elbow, golf elbow, proximal radial nerve compression syndrome, so-called coracoiditis and Sudecks dystrophy. In each case, the neurogenic pathogenesis is identified and deficiencies of other interpretations, for example that these conditions are the result of degenerative processes, are discussed. Appropriate surgical techniques in resistant cases are described in the context of pathogenesis and treatment outcomes are documented. The fact that these outcomes are excellent in the large majority of cases may be taken as support for the authors interpretation of pathogenesis. This book will be informative and instructive for all hand, orthopedic, trauma, plastic, general and neurosurgeons as well as neurologists and hand therapists. Albrecht Wilhelm was born in 1929 in Braunau, Bohemia (now in the Czech Republic). He studied at Würzburg and Munich Universities and in 1955 was awarded his PhD (magna cum laude). In spring 1954 he embarked on an internship in the surgical department of Würzburg University and the results obtained with surgical methods that he subsequently developed in Würzburg formed the basis for his Habilitationsschrift, Joint Denervation and its Anatomical Basis - A New Principle in Hand Surgery (1966). In 1970 Dr. Wilhelm was appointed Professor of Surgery and also assumed responsibility for the Surgical Department at Aschaffenburg Hospital. Throughout his career, Dr. Wilhelm has had a keen interest in hand surgery and surgery of peripheral nerves. He has authored 139 scientific publications, 32 of which have been book contributions. He has developed 20 new surgical techniques, including 18 relating to the upper extremity and has provided solutions to the disputed pathogenesis of various conditions. Since his retirement in 1994 he has continued to conduct scientific research and voluntary surgical activities. Dr. Wilhelm has been the recipient of various honors: He received the Federal Medal in 1989. He served as President of the German Society of Hand Surgery (DGH) in 1992 and was made a member of honor of the society in 1994. He was named as an IFSSH Pioneer of Hand Surgery in 2004 and became a member of honor of the DAH (German-Speaking Hand Surgery Association) in 2013.
