EVERYTHING THAT HE THOUGHT would happen could no longer happen. His failing physical abilities reminded him while his eyes affirmed this truth. Or so he thought. Mending Nerves follows the journey of Lobio, a seasoned physiotherapist working primarily in the neurological rehabilitation department at a local hospital when he himself is faced with a neurodegenerative disorder. He comes face-to-face with multiple sclerosis while he coexists as both healthcare provider and patient. While he endures physical, mental andemotional challenges along the way, he searches for strategies to mitigate his symptoms and improve his functional abilities. Lobio also comes to the realization that since he can relate to his clients, he can bolster them in ways that he otherwise could not have. They in turn help him in ways, both directly and indirectly, that enlighten and motivate him. For Lobio, redemption ultimately comes with acceptance of his new reality. Only by acknowledging his limitations and realizing that he still has purpose will he find inner peace.

Examining the popular discourse of nerves and stress, this book provides a historical account of how ordinary Britons understood, explained and coped with the pressures and strains of daily life during the twentieth century. It traces the popular, vernacular discourse of stress, illuminating not just how stress was known, but the ways in which that knowledge was produced. Taking a cultural approach, the book focuses on contemporary popular understandings, revealing continuity of ideas about work, mental health, status, gender and individual weakness, as well as the changing socio-economic contexts that enabled stress to become a ubiquitous condition of everyday life by the end of the century. With accounts from sufferers, families and colleagues it also offers insight into self-help literature, the meanings of work and changing dynamics of domestic life, delivering a complementary perspective to medical histories of stress.

Interest in the study of peripheral nerve repair and regeneration has increased significantly over the last twenty years and today the number of nerve reconstructions performed is progressively increasing due to the continuous improvement in surgical technology and to the spread of microsurgical skills among surgeons worldwide. This volume of International Review of Neurobiology providdes an overview of the state of the art knowledge in peripheral nerve repair and regeneration by bringing together a number of reviews that critically address some the most important issues in this biomedical field.

Even the best hernia repair can result in postoperative difficulties for the patient caused by repair sequelae as for example pain, infertility, infection, adhesion and dislocation of the protheses. That can happen many years later and now, where the general principle of hernia repair is well understood all over the world, these sequelae are noticed more and more. To define them, to evaluate the absolute and relative risk of these sequelaes and to describe the ways of their prevention, diagnosis and treatment, the 5th Suvretta meeting had focussed on this subject. We discussed if there’s a principle risk by technique, material or both. The results of these discussions and the future handling and evaluation of this problem was the aim of this meeting. Even the best method can be made better by optimization of its single components.

Peripheral nerve issues are potential sequalae of orthopedic surgery, even after cases in which technically excellent surgery was performed. These injuries can impede the expected recovery of function after the primary surgery. Given the manifold challenges associated with recovery of peripheral nerve injuries, this book is designed as a multidisciplinary guide to the diagnosis, prognostication and treatment of peripheral nerve issues after common orthopedic surgeries. Beginning with an overview of nerve compression, injury and regeneration, as well as a presentation of the current diagnostic and imaging modalities for peripheral nerve injuries, this unique text is organized by anatomic region and by type of procedure performed. Topics covered include shoulder and elbow arthroplasty and arthroscopy, fractures of the hand and wrist, hip preservation surgery, total knee replacement, open surgery of the foot and ankle, lumbosacral myeloradiculopathy, and more. Each chapter is authored by both a subspecialty surgeon who routinely performs the surgeries described and a subspecialized hand/peripheral nerve surgeon with experience in evaluating and treating nerve issues after that particular injury. Emphasis is placed on multidisciplinary team approaches, patient counseling, and technical aspects of surgical treatment. Generously illustrated and written by experts in the field, Peripheral Nerve Issues after Orthopedic Surgery is a truly interdisciplinary resource for orthopedic, plastic, hand and trauma surgeons, physiatrists, trainees, and all professionals evaluating and managing postoperative peripheral nerve issues.

Microsurgical techniques are widely used in the field of orthopaedics. This book addresses all aspects of orthopaedic microsurgery, from development of the principles to their applications. Replantation of fingers, hands and extremity parts are well summarized by highly experienced microsurgical surgeons. The methods for tissue transplantation and microsurgical reconstruction of tissue defects, which have been proved to be successful tools for saving severely injured extremities, were developed by experienced orthopaedic surgeons in cooperation with plastic surgeons. Injuries to peripheral nerves and the brachial plexus are also discussed extensively in this monograph. All illustrations and tables were meticulously selected and are easy to understand. The book was written for all microsurgeons who work in the fields of orthopaedics, plastic and hand surgery. Guoxian Pei is a professor at the Department of Orthopaedics, Xijing Hospital, the Fourth Military Medical University, Xi An, China.​
