Dedicated guide to the lumbar plexus provides invaluable anatomical
and surgical insights Thorough knowledge of the lumbar plexus and
its branches is crucial to achieving positive patient outcomes,
especially with newer surgical approaches. Many of the nerve
branches are formed within the psoas major muscle and careful
dissection is necessary to free them during surgery to prevent
damage. Moreover, the iliac vessels are medial to some of the
larger branches of the plexus, such as the femoral and obturator
nerves. In the retroperitoneal space, the kidney and ureter are
nearby. In addition, due to the overlying peritoneal cavity and its
contents, accessing the lumbar plexus presents considerable
challenges. Surgical Anatomy of the Lumbar Plexus is the only book
on the market devoted to the lumbar plexus and its branches,
focusing on anatomy and clinical applications, pathology, surgery,
and imaging. Internationally known authors R. Shane Tubbs, Marios
Loukas, Amgad Hanna, Rod Oskouian and a cadre of esteemed
specialists provide unique insights, clinical pearls, knowledge
based on thousands of spine surgeries, and a well-rounded
multidisciplinary perspective. Key Highlights Nine separate
chapters dedicated to impacted nerves: subcostal, iliohypogastric,
ilioinguinal, lateral femoral cutaneous, genitofemoral, femoral,
obturator, furcal, and accessory obturator History and overview of
dermatomal anatomy of branches derived from the lumbar plexus
Anesthetic blockade of the femoral, lateral femoral cutaneous,
iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal, and genitofemoral nerves Tips for
preventing complications and achieving positive outcomes for
lateral transpsoas approaches to the lumbar spine and other
procedures More than 100 novel illustrations provide clarity and
understanding of a complex anatomical area as it relates to surgery
involving the lumbar plexus and branches This one-of-a-kind
resource provides crucial surgical and anatomical information on
the lumbar plexus. It is a must-have reference for neurosurgeons,
orthopaedic surgeons, and general surgeons. Reading it
cover-to-cover will ultimately benefit patients undergoing lumbar
spine surgery. This book includes complimentary access to a digital
