The industrial surgeon treating peripheral nerve injuries, the neurologist and the neurosurgeon will welcome this book as a scientific and yet practical source of information. Dr. Pollock has utilized his ample experience with war injuries to indicate the individual problems of injuries of various peripheral nerves. Adequate chapters concerned with examination, diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve injuries are followed by detailed accounts of injuries to individual nerves. The book is profusely and well illustrated. There is a good index, and for the specialist who desires access to the literature there is a verified bibliography of 1,958 titles. The personal experiences of the authors, which form the bulk of the volume, stand almost alone in American literature as an example of scientifically valuable observations recorded by long and arduous studies during the war.
