About this book

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, with its surgical profile, is a must for those specialising in this condition (hand surgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, physiatrists and hand physical therapists), for both experts and newcomers to this field. For the young surgeon just starting out, the book explains the technical modalities of surgical treatment for this condition and describes alternative non-surgical procedures. It also depicts the complications that can arise in treatment. For more experienced surgeons, this book is an instrument for deepening their knowledge of this condition and its management. It can be considered a moment for reflection on a condition that is erroneously considered simple to treat and easy to resolve. The surgical chapters compare various complications as well as various conservative and rehabilitative treatment options, thus underlining that this condition must not be underestimated. Incorrect treatment can have many negative ramifications: not only that the patient is dissatisfied but it can also lead to the hand’s functional loss and render the patient an invalid. This book is also intended for all physicians and medical students interested in this subject, presenting the broad range of problems caused by this condition and how best to manage them.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a multi author book, largely from Italy and the USA. … this is a useful book for surgeons, offering a wealth of technical advice about the treatment of a common condition in our practice. It will be particularly useful to those who wish to review their technique for carpal tunnel decompression or revision surgery. The book provides a useful template for assessing patients with complications arising from decompression. It is very much a book by surgeons for surgeons." (Frank D. Burke, Journal of Hand Surgery, 2007)
