This book offers a comprehensive but straightforward, practical handbook on ultrasound (US)-guided nerve blocks. It presents the normal US anatomy of peripheral nerves, clinical aspects of nerve entrapment and different procedures / techniques for each block. Axial or peripheral chronic radicular pain can be particularly severe and debilitating for the patient. The aim of treatment is to provide medium-/ long-term pain relief, and consequently to restore function. The therapeutic nerve block, performed with a perineural injection of anaesthetic, steroid or painkiller, is generally used once conservative treatments have proven unsuccessful and is aimed to avoid surgical options. Ultrasound guidance, offering the direct and real-time visualization of the needle and adjacent relevant anatomic structures, significantly increases the accuracy and safety of nerve blocks reducing the risk of intraneural or intravascular injection and the potential damage to the surrounding structures, but also enhances the efficacy of the block itself, reducing its onset and drug doses. This practical volume addresses the needs of physicians dealing with pain management, e.g. anaesthesiologists, radiologists, orthopaedists and physiatrists, with various levels of experience, ranging from physicians in training to those who already perform peripheral nerve blocks with traditional techniques and who want to familiarize with US guided procedures.

The complete, authoritative, and practical guide to ultrasound-guided nerve blocks – updated to reflect the most current NYSORA initiatives INCLUDES THREE ATLASES Hadzic’s is the most comprehensive color guide to the procedures and equipment used in ultrasound guided nerve blocking. Color drawings and photographs are bolstered by concise, step-by-step instruction from the world-renowned St. Luke’s Hospital in New York. The Third Edition has been updated to include more international contributors, and better align the book’s content with the New York School of Regional Anesthesia’s (NYSORA) standards of practice. Featuring sections that progress from the foundations of regional anesthesia to the clinical applications of nerve blocks, Hadzic’s includes tips and insider perspective from the leadership of NYSORA and its academic affiliates. The book also includes three separate atlases, including a new atlas of musculoskeletal ultrasound, as well as surface anatomy, and ultrasound-guided anatomy. A real-world emphasis on clinical utility serves as the underpinning of chapter content and drives the book’s in-depth explanations of techniques and procedures Outstanding organization begins with the foundations of peripheral nerve blocks (e.g., regional anesthesia, equipment, and monitoring and documentation) and then reviews clinical applications for both traditional procedures and ultrasound-guided procedures Three atlases: musculoskeletal ultrasound, surface anatomy, ultrasound-guided anatomy

This full-color text/atlas describes all of the nerve blocks for which ultrasound guidance has proved efficacious, including upper and lower limb blocks. The chapter organization is similar to Chelly's Peripheral Nerve Blocks book: each block is described by concise text covering the indications for use, necessary equipment, anatomic landmarks, approach, and technique. The blocks are richly illustrated by ultrasound stills and relevant anatomy. A companion Website will have video modules on 1. principles of sonography, including how to turn on the machine, set up the transducers, move the transducers, change the contrast, depth, frequency and dynamic range compression settings, how to use color Doppler flow imaging and align the needle with the beam and 2. ultrasound-guided blocks of the interscalene, supraclavicular, infraclavicular, axillary, femoral, subgluteal, popliteal, and caudal regions.

Regional anesthesia is a fast-growing field, fuelled by the application of ultrasound technology over the last decade. This book is a technique-oriented guide, which introduces the use of ultrasound technology with practical instruction in the placement of peripheral nerve blocks and continuous perineural catheters. Each procedure is summarized for quick, easy reference, and supplemented by ultrasound images, color photos, and detailed illustrations. Helpful hints and instructions are provided to further optimize block success. Chapters are organized into four sections, focusing on introductory concepts, upper extremity peripheral nerve blocks, lower extremity peripheral nerve blocks and continuous perineural catheters. Written by instructors from a major academic medical center who work in a fast-paced ambulatory setting, this is a key text for residents, fellows and staff physicians who wish to incorporate the use of ultrasound into the scope of their anesthetic practice.

In recent years, sonography of the peripheral nervous system has gained widespread acceptance. New diagnostic applications have emerged, and the field of ultrasound-guided interventions has expanded significantly: regional anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks, and similar techniques are now frequently performed under ultrasound guidance by anesthesiologists and pain physicians alike. This atlas of peripheral nerve ultrasound is designed to meet the daily needs of both radiologists and clinicians by allowing rapid review of typical features, knowledge of which is important for successful diagnosis and intervention. The side by side presentation of ultrasound images with anatomical cryosections and photographs of transducer positions allows for reliable sonographic identification of even tiny nerves in regions of complex topography. The practical value of the atlas is further enhanced by correlations with high-resolution MRI scans.
