Neurosurgery for the Neurologist: Peripheral Nerve Injury and Compression (What can be Fixed?).
This chapter will review the current management of patients with peripheral nerve injuries and nerve compression syndromes that result in favorable surgical outcomes when appropriately evaluated and referred in a timely fashion. Given the fact that neurologists frequently evaluate patients with these conditions and refer patients to neurosurgeons, it is important for them to be aware of the indications for, types and timing of surgical procedures, and expected outcomes with the various types of interventions.
