Description

Devoted guide to the lumbar plexus provides invaluable surgical and anatomical insights

Thorough information of the lumbar plexus and its branches is important to achieving positive patient outcomes, particularly with newer surgical approaches. Several of the nerve branches are formed within the psoas major muscle and careful dissection is crucial to free them during surgery to prevent damage. Furthermore, the iliac vessels are medial to some of the larger branches of the plexus, like the femoral and obturator nerves. In the retroperitoneal space, the kidney and ureter are closer. Moreover, due to the overlying peritoneal cavity and its contents, accessing the lumbar plexus presents substantial challenges.

Surgical Anatomy of the Lumbar Plexus (PDF) is the only ebook on the market devoted to the lumbar plexus and its branches, emphasizing anatomy and clinical applications, pathology, surgery, and imaging. Internationally known authors R. Shane Tubbs, Amgad Hanna, Marios Loukas, Rod Oskouian, and a cadre of respected specialists provide unique insights, clinical pearls, knowledge based on numerous spine surgeries, and a comprehensive multidisciplinary perspective.

Key Highlights

  • Overview and history of dermatomal anatomy of branches originated from the lumbar plexus
  • Anesthetic blockade of the femoral, iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal, lateral femoral cutaneous,  and genitofemoral nerves
  • Tips for avoiding complications and achieving positive outcomes for lateral transpsoas approaches to the lumbar spine and other procedures
  • Over 100 novel illustrations provide precision and understanding of a complex anatomical area as it relates to surgery involving the lumbar plexus and branches
  • Nine distinct chapters dedicated to impacted nerves: subcostal, iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal, lateral femoral cutaneous, genitofemoral, femoral, obturator, furcal, and accessory obturator

This one-of-a-kind resource delivers crucial surgical and anatomical information on the lumbar plexus. It is an essential reference for orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and general surgeons. Reading it cover-to-cover will eventually benefit patients undergoing lumbar spine surgery.
