The book is a pleasure to peruse because the clinical and histopathologic illustrations are sharp, superb, and flawless. The extreme care taken by the authors in choosing representative clinical lesions and showing their histopathologic features in low, medium, and high magnifications is readily apparent. The paired distinctions are demonstrated in capsule and table form and are well illustrated by the labeled photographs.
The brief discussions that follow the illustrative and tabular material enhance the descriptions and provide the reader with a clear picture of the compared diseases. A glossary at the end of the book provides definitions and quick reference to the terms used in the text.
A partial list of the differential diagnoses includes the following pairs of disorders: The Second edition has also added a large number of new fluoroscopic imaging figures and color drawings.
There are chapters, each devoted to a specific intervention. Each chapter has the CPT codes for the detailed procedure, as well as the relative value units for that procedure. In general, the pictures are colorful, but often do not seem to help one orient to the nuances of the underlying anatomy. Many of the computed tomographic or fluoroscopic images are dark and hard to visualize.
Further, there are many instances in which the figures are inaccurate or misleading. Unfortunately, there is no obvious contrast flow depicted in any of the pictures in that chapter. The figure, however, demonstrates the 4: After discussing the selective diagnostic role for this injection, the fluoroscopic image in figure 81—5 shows a nonselective transforaminal epidural injection with contrast clearly seen flowing medially into the epidural space and outlining at least two vertebral segments in the lateral epidural space.
In another chapter describing the psoas compartment technique for lumbar plexus nerve block, figure 97—2 appears to show the needle entry site over the sacral alae, which would not seem to be an appropriate location to reach the L4—5 paravertebral area. Several other examples of confusing figures could be cited; these lessen the overall appeal of this book. In his efforts to be inclusive, the author has included many procedures for which the body of literature support is scanty, at best.
For example, the most extensive referenced article validating the Ganglion Impar block is a case series abstract. It seems to make little sense that with the proximity of the rectum, the author would proscribe such wide variations in acceptable technique for such a poorly validated procedure.
Most of the Clinical Pearls sections suggest an ease of performing the procedures and dramatic results that are not consistent with the clinical experience of many.
Further, there is no discussion of the effect of extensive retroperitoneal tumor spread and the effects of this on spread of the neurolytic or efficacy of neurolysis.
The main strengths of this book are its inclusion of a large number of procedures and the sections on relevant anatomy. However, this text leaves much to be desired as a guide for residents, fellows, or anyone who does not have a detailed knowledge of the pain literature.
Without the inclusion of pertinent references, or at least suggested readings at the conclusion of each chapter, the reader has no basis on which to judge whether the recommendations made by the author are supported by existing evidence or not.
Although clinical experience can certainly vary and supporting literature is often scanty, in my opinion the author is consistently overly optimistic regarding the efficacy of procedures and consistently downplays possible risks.
When this lack of attention to evidence-based practice is combined with misleading figures and simplistic pictures, one is left with a book that may be of real utility only for clinicians learning these block techniques who desire a quick bookshelf reference that contains most of the contemporary procedures and CPT codes.
A book that combines attention to evidence-based practice with consistent graphical excellence is still sorely needed.
Creates a virtual one-stop shop with an exhaustive list of known and defined pain syndromes classified by body region. The copy writer conveys their point in certain way that can be understood through anyone who read it because the author of this guide is well-known enough.
That book also makes your vocabulary increase well. Making it easy to understand then can go along with you, both in printed or e-book style are available. David Packard: A lot of people always spent all their free time to vacation or perhaps go to the outside with them family members or their friend. Did you know?
Many a lot of people spent that they free time just watching TV, or playing video games all day long. If you would like try to find a new activity that's look different you can read a book. It is really fun in your case.
If you enjoy the book that you simply read you can spent all day every day to reading a reserve.
