Abstract
Un bloc nerveux permet d’envoyer un anesthésique local (médicament servant à insensibiliser) au moyen d’une petite aiguille à un endroit près de vos nerfs. Vous trouverez les renseignements suivants dans ce guide : pourquoi et quand utilise-t-on un bloc nerveux, comment fait-on un bloc nerveux, dans quelle mesure fonctionne-t-il et aide-t-il après l’opération, quels sont les effets secondaires, combien de temps faut-il pour le faire, pourquoi le patient demeure éveillé pendant l’opération, quelles activités doivent être évitées après le bloc et quels symptômes exigent des soins médicaux immédiats.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Managing Your Surgical Pain with Nerve Blocks" pamphlet 1377. A nerve block sends local anesthetic (numbing medicine) through a small needle to a spot near your nerves. In this guide, you will learn about: why nerve blocks are used, when they are given, how they are done, how well they work, how they will help you after surgery, side effects, how long it will take, why you will be awake while it is given, activities to avoid after, and symptoms that require immediate medical attention.

Abstract
This is the first atlas to depict in high-resolution images the fine structure of the spinal canal, the nervous plexuses, and the peripheral nerves in relation to clinical practice. The Atlas of Functional Anatomy for Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine contains more than 1500 images of unsurpassed quality, most of which have never been published, including scanning electron microscopy images of neuronal ultrastructures, macroscopic sectional anatomy, and three-dimensional images reconstructed from patient imaging studies. Each chapter begins with a short introduction on the covered subject but then allows the images to embody the rest of the work; detailed text accompanies figures to guide readers through anatomy, providing evidence-based, clinically relevant information. Beyond clinically relevant anatomy, the book features regional anesthesia equipment (needles, catheters, surgical gloves) and overview of some cutting edge research instruments (e.g. scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy). Of interest to regional anesthesiologists, interventional pain physicians, and surgeons, this compendium is meant to complement texts that do not have this type of graphic material in the subjects of regional anesthesia, interventional pain management, and surgical techniques of the spine or peripheral nerves.

Abstract
The use of ultrasound guidance to perform diagnostic and therapeutic injections is growing at a rapid rate, as is the evidence to support its use. Even with the increased popularity of ultrasound, there remains a lack of formal training or a standard reference book. Atlas of Ultrasound Guided Musculoskeletal Injections fills this void in the literature and will be useful to physiatrists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, pain medicine and sports medicine specialists alike. Broken down by anatomic structure and heavily illustrated, this book is both comprehensive and instructive. The Editors and their contributors break down the basics (both the fundamentals of ultrasound to needle visibility and the role of injections) and explore ultrasound-guided injection for structures in the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, hip and groin, knee, ankle and foot, and spine. Using a clear, heavily illustrated format, this book describes the relevant clinical scenarios and indications for injection, the evidence to support ultrasound use, relevant local anatomy, injection methods, and pearls and safety considerations.

Abstract
This is a highly informative and carefully presented book for trainees and postgraduate students of anaesthesiology as well as practicing clinicians. This book aims to help them in selecting and implementing the most suitable regional block in each clinical scenario and successfully use the techniques of ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia (USRA) in their practice. This book covers basics of ultrasound imaging, anatomical aspects and techniques of all nerve blocks that are commonly used in clinical practice in a lucid and illustrated presentation. Regional anaesthesia can be a safe alternative to general anaesthesia. When combined with general anaesthesia, it can provide excellent postoperative analgesia too. With the advent of ultrasound, the scope, safety and reliability of regional anaesthesia has expanded manifold. However, there is a lack of formal clinical training in regional anaesthesia in most of the anaesthesia postgraduate curricula and this book intends to bridge this gap. The book serves as a useful resource to the anaesthetist; trainee or practitioner who wants to master the nerve blocks.

Abstract
Designed and written by a team of clinically established academics, this is a unique book that is an excellent manual for physicians practicing pain medicine or treating pain in neurosurgery, orthopedic, neurology, or family practice clinics. As a practical resource, this book is written to be more accessible to the reader and is designed to be more clinically-focused and useful in day-to-day practice. This 102 chapter volume is divided into seven separate sections: Anatomy and Physiology of Pain, Psychology of Pain, Pharmacological Treatment of Pain, Interventional Treatment of Pain, Adjuvant Therapies for Pain and Suggested Reading. The calculated organization of this book is supplemented by key photos, drawings and a self-assessment of four key questions at the end of each chapter ­­­­-- thus making it an indispensable, pragmatic resource that will benefit anyone working in the pain management field. Deer's Treatment of Pain: An Illustrated Guide for Practitioners contains pearls for improving knowledge and improving one’s practice as a physician.

Abstract
This comprehensive book serves as a review for the Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice (FIPP) exam and functions as a concise guide for all interventional pain doctors. Through educational initiatives, it helps to promote consensus-building among experts on the effectiveness of existing techniques and avenues for advancement of therapeutic performances. The book is divided into four sections (head and neck, thoracic, lumbar and sacral/pelvic), and each chapter is devoted to the safe, standardized approach to interventional procedures. To prepare both the examiner and the examinee for the FIPP examination, each chapter contains the relevant C-arm images and outlines the most common reasons for “unacceptable procedures performance” and “potentially unsafe procedures performance.” Distinguishing it from many of the previous guides, it also includes labeled fluoroscopic high quality images and focuses on the current FIPP-examined procedures with all accepted approaches. Written and edited by world leaders in pain, Interventional Pain guides the reader in study for FIPP Exam and offers a consensus on how interventional procedures should be performed and examined.

Abstract
This book serves as an anatomic atlas of the nerves that innervate the joints of the human body in a format that also provides technical insight into pathways that both interventional pain management and surgical subspecialists can use to denervate those painful joints when traditional approaches to manage the pain are no longer successful. This book avails the knowledge of how denervation can relieve joint pain available to the many groups of physicians who care for this problem. Each chapter is devoted to a joint and reviews the neural anatomy as it relates to the clinical examination of the patient. Chapters are user friendly and provide details on the indicated nerve blocks and the clinical results of partial joint denervation. Clinical case studies also serve as a helpful guide in each chapter. Extensive intra-operative clinical photographs and photographs from new prosections provide examples to guide those physicians providing care to the patients with joint pain. Joint Denervation: Anatomic Atlas of Surgical Technique should be of interest to surgical subspecialists from Neurosurgery, Plastic Surgery, Hand Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Podiatric Foot & Ankle Surgery, and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. It may also interest those physicians trained in Anesthesia, Radiology, and Physical & Rehabilitation Medicine for their evaluation and treatment protocols using hydrodissection, cryoablation and pulsed radiofrequency approaches to pain.
