About this book

This book discusses the diagnosis and therapy for movement disorders of the upper extremities in children caused by brachial plexus injuries, peripheral nerve lesions or spasticity. The diagnostic procedures are presented from the perspective of pediatricians and surgeons. In addition to detailed descriptions of primary reconstructive and secondary surgical procedures, it also presents essentials of non operative treatment, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and orthopedic technologies. The book is rounded out with information on the management of these patients and their parents.
Written by experienced clinicians, it offers valuable reading for plastic surgeons, pediatricians and surgeons who are interested in this topic.
