Présentation de l'éditeur
The atlas is divided into sections on the major peripheral nerves. Each nerve is illustrated and its anatomy reviewed in the text. The authors provide a detailed outline of the clinical conditions and entrapment syndromes that affect the nerve, including a list of etiologies, clinical features, and electrodiagnostic strategies used for each symdrome. Each muscle supplied by the peripheral nerve is shown as an anatomical illustration with a corresponding human photograph. The text provides information about the muscle origin, tendon insertion, voluntary activation maneuver, and site of optimum needle insertion. The needle insertion point is identified in both the anatomical illustration and the corresponding photographs. This assures that pertinent bone, muscular, and soft tissue landmarks can be used to guide the electromyographer to a specific point on the skin. Potential pitfalls associated with the needle insertion are added, usually noting adjacent muscles or structures that may be mistakenly entered. Clinical correlates pertinent to the muscle being examined are also provided. The tlas of Electromyography serves as an anatomical guide for practitioners of electromyography and neurologists, as well as residents i neurology, physical medicine, and rehabilitation.
