The need for a comprehensive resource with easy-to-find information has increased with the addition of nine new syndromes. Tunnel Syndromes: Peripheral Nerve Compression Syndromes provides a quick overview of tunnel syndromes including the definition, anatomy, etiology, clinical signs and symptoms, and treatment. It presents a total of 50 tunnel syndromes. Following the tradition of the first two editions, this resource continues to probe the origins of tunnel syndromes and to propose probable causes that lead to them.
All existing chapters have been updated and new chapters have been added including:
Spinal accessory nerve syndrome
Intercostobrachial nerve syndrome
Medial antebrachial cutaneous nerve syndrome
Distal posterior interosseous nerve syndrome
Medial superior cluneal nerve syndrome

"…presents a compact, systematic, and well written overview of anatomy, aetiology, clinical symptoms and signs, and treatment of these syndromes. …Perhaps the most valuable part of the book is the description of the anatomical relations that underlie the aetiology of the canicular syndromes. …The beauty of this book is its simplicity and clear structure, which is achieved without any loss of factual knowledge. …well suited for medical students who want to learn about these common diagnoses and orthopaedic surgeons who wan to keep up with the developments in the specialty. Other medical specialties involved in the diagnosis or treatment of patients with tunnel syndromes would also benefit from this book."

"This compact, yet thorough, book covers the essentials of diagnosing and treating peripheral nerve compression syndromes…factual, to the point, and easy to read…accurate and clearly written…I would recommend this book…"
-Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy
"The book is clearly structured, as each tunnel syndrome is presented in a separate chapter including: anatomy, etiology, clinical symptoms and signs, treatment and references. I strongly recommend this book not only to orhthopaedic surgeons, but also to any other doctors treating patients with tunnel syndromes."
-Peter A. Frandsen, M.D., International Orthopaedics
"…this book describes all of the tunnel syndromes. It is systematic, short and well written. The book is recommended for students, residents, and physicians who need a brief overview of peripheral nerve compression syndromes".
