Atlas of Ultrasound-Guided Nerve-Targeted Procedures for Spasticity

Paul Winston / Daniel Vincent

Dr Paul Winston is a Clinical Associate Professor in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
He is the past president of the Canadian Association of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and cofounder of the Canadian Advances in Neuro-Orthopedics for Spasticity Consortium. Dr Vincent is an Interventional Anesthesiologist.
The University of British Columbia physicians cofounded the Victoria Peripheral Nerve and Spasticity Clinic to create optimal care pathways for patients with spasticity.
They are innovators in the use of ultrasound-guided diagnostic nerve blocks to predict outcomes and select the best treatment as well as pioneers in new cryoneurolysis for spasticity.
The Atlas is the ultimate working aid for everyone wanting to improve clinical outcomes and offer optimal care to patients with spasticity.
The diagnostic nerve block is a technique to efficiently choose the most appropriate muscles and offer the best treatment, from botulinum neurotoxin to phenolization to surgery to new interventions.

Chapters include 33 international authors and experts that describe numerous topics from current definitions of spasticity, an explanation of diagnostic nerve blocks, and current concepts in surgical, chemodenervation, and new interventions.

High-quality pictures illustrate the location of the nerve trunks and branches, as well as muscle action, injection sites, and injection protocols techniques for each desired muscle or muscle group.

There are over 60 videos showing both the injection techniques and clinical vignettes and case studies really linked by your smartphone.

Clinically oriented techniques are approached and visualized precisely in a compact form.
The book is ideal for looking up and optimizing your injection technique.
The continuous double-page concept allows for effective navigation and for quick retrieval of the desired information with easy access to instructional videos from your smartphone.

Germany, Berlin

Ralf J. Radlanski is Director of the Department of Craniofacial Developmental Biology at Charité, the Center for Dental and Craniofacial Sciences. As an anatomist, an internationally esteemed scientist, and as a practicing orthodontist, he works at the interface between biology-anatomy on the one hand and esthetic clinical requirements on the other, a crucial area of interaction in many clinical disciplines.

Karl H. Wesker is an artist and an illustrator. He has worked for many years on the visualization and didactic presentation of complex structures. He has developed new methods that produce highly detailed and yet esthetically fascinating images of human anatomy. These methods form the foundation of the three-volume atlas of anatomy Prometheus, which is being published by Thieme and for which he has created most of the illustrations.
