The first work of its kind devoted to the surgical anatomy of the cervical plexus, Surgical Anatomy of the Cervical Plexus and Its Branches clearly explains and illustrates this important subset of peripheral nervous system anatomy. Ideal for physicians and residents from a wide range of medical and surgical disciplines, this unique title details new methods of imaging the cervical plexus, as well as its pathology and appropriate surgical approaches.
Using fresh cadaveric dissections, the surgical anatomy of each branch of the cervical plexus will be demonstrated.
Nerves are to be color-coded to differentiate them from other tissues and dissected in a layer-by-layer method.
New methods of imaging the cervical plexus as well as its pathology and appropriate surgical approaches will be covered in detail
