The field of sports medicine covers a tremendous territory. Athletes present to their physician with everything from sprained ankles to bowel problems while running. Many of the classic textbooks in sports medicine cover many of these issues in a cursory way. Two major organ systems that account for many injuries in athletes are the nervous system and the vascular system. Because of their widespread, diffuse nature, athletes can present with myriad signs and symptoms related to these systems. Drs. Akuthota and Herring have done an outstanding job in their textbook Nerve and Vascular Injuries in Sports Medicine to produce a commonsense, yet thorough, approach to potential nerve and vascular injuries in athletes. The text provides any physician or clinician who evaluates and treats athletes with a clear path to an appropriate history, physical examination, imaging studies, and electrophysiologic and vascular examinations of any athlete with potential nerve or vascular injuries. The first third of the book describes the appropriate evaluation of athletes with nerve and vascular symptoms and signs. Emphasis is placed on kinetic chain contributions to nerve and vascular injuries to address not only the cause of the injury but possible associated, contributing biomechanical deficiencies. The last two-thirds of the book cover regional specific nerve and vascular injuries with special attention to stingers, thoracic outlet syndrome, lumbar radiculopathy, and compartment syndromes.

From the reviews:
“This book is useful for healthcare practitioners treating athletes. It has a good overview of anatomy and pathophysiology and has a diverse content spectrum. The book skillfully guides the reader through a plethora of nerve and vascular injuries and gives sound recommendations on proper sports medicine management related to such injuries. I would recommend this text to any healthcare practitioner who manages athletes with potential nerve and vascular problems.” (Jairus J. Quesnele, Journal ofOrthopaedic& Sports Physical Therapy, Vol. 41 (10), October, 2011)
“This is a clinical guide to neurologic and vascular injuries encountered in sports medicine. … Sports medicine practitioners are the intended audience. It is especially helpful for team physicians and/or practitioners of nonsurgical sports medicine. Residents and fellows interested in sports medicine will also find it helpful. … The illustrations are generally well done and augment the text. … This is a unique, high-quality book … .” (Anthony Joseph Ewald, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2009)Dalla quarta di copertina:
Suspected vascular, peripheral nerve, and root nerve injuries present a particular challenge to any physician diagnosing and treating athletes. Injuries can range from "stingers" to effort vein thrombosis, and yet despite the common occurrence and potential severity of these and other conditions, little attention is paid to nerve and vascular injuries in sports medicine literature. This book is the first to gather experts in the field to fully address the complexity of neurovascular sports injuries. Nerve and Vascular Injuries in Sports Medicine takes a comprehensive look at anatomy, pathophysiology, examination and diagnosis of neurovascular sports injury, upper limb neurovascular syndrome, radicular and bracial plexus injury, and the lower extremity, including peripheral nerve injury. Illustrated throughout and dedicated to presenting the essential for managing nerve and vascular injuries, this book is an ideal resource for sports medicine physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and all physicians who treat active patients.
