This book is the product of a collaboration by two neurologists and an orthopedic surgeon working together in the care of patients with entrapment neuropathies.

The titles include entrapment neuropathies of the median, ulnar, radial, digital, sciatic, peroneal, tibial, and lateral femoral cutaneous nerves, as well as the thoracic outlet syndrome.

An appendix contains, in table form, normal values of nerve conduction
