Focusing on the how-to details of pain management injection techniques, this best-selling atlas helps you master the key nerve blocks you need to know to. Joint and muscular injections also provide an important contribution to the diagnosis and management of chronic pain. serving as the sole analgesic technique. exact techniques and indications, as well as the risks. Injections are aus: Fischer, Atlas of Injection: Therapy in Pain Management (ISBN ).
Each chapter starts with the proper billing code CPT and contains five sections: An illustration is included for each technique. Strengths and weaknesses of this approach can be illustrated by an example, the chapter about temporomandibular joint TMJ pain.
The Indications and Clinical Considerations section gives a brief overview of the location and characteristics of TMJ-associated pain in one paragraph. The Clinically Relevant Anatomy section describes the anatomy of the joint in a single sentence and then tells us that internal derangement of the disc may cause TMJ-related pain.
The Technique description and the corresponding illustration are also lacking in detail.
In the Side Effects section, we are warned that the region around the TMJ is highly vascular, increasing the risk of hematoma formation, and that accidental facial nerve block may occur, but neither the narrative description nor the illustration reveals enough about the adjacent anatomy to help us understand how to avoid these complications. The final Clinical Pearls section is a rapid-fire attempt to cover the myriad causes of pain in the area of the TMJ.
The coverage is so cursory and the anatomic details are so few that I do not believe the inexperienced reader could either understand what TMJ joint pain is or how and, more importantly, when to perform TMJ injection. To be fair, the author states at the outset that this is a how-to guide; there is no reason to expect anything more than a brief description of each pain syndrome.
Practitioners in various disciplines use many of the injection techniques routinely. There is no other available source that brings together descriptions of common pain syndromes and the typical injection techniques for conditions such as tennis elbow, de Quervain tenosynovitis, slipping rib syndrome, piriformis syndrome, plantar fascists.
The concept behind this atlas is valuable, but it lacks enough essential information to be useable as a stand-alone reference. Given that the atlas advocates the use of local anesthetic and steroid combinations, a key omission is a discussion of the risks, benefits, and available preparations of these two groups of drugs. There are no data given to help the reader understand how and when to use the injection techniques in a rational way; indeed, there is not a single reference in the atlas.
The overall impression is that the book represents a catalog of superficial information about injecting virtually every bursa, muscle, joint, ligament, and small peripheral nerve in the human body, but with information and diagrams lacking enough anatomic detail to guide practitioners.
If this book serves, as is my opinion, to promote the indiscriminate use of injections techniques, then it does a disservice to the evolving field of pain medicine.

The concept of assembling information about common injection techniques in one compendium is valuable, but a true opportunity was missed to review the scientific literature and prepare a rational guide that incorporates the best available evidence for using these injection techniques.

Indeed, one major improvement from the previous edition of the book is the inclusion of ultrasound-based techniques for all blocks suited for this approach. This information is a welcome addition, as ultrasound has become a mainstay in an increasing number of pain management procedures. Along with the textual description, original ultrasound images are included to facilitate and guide application of the technique.
In select cases, fluoroscopy-guided approaches are presented as well. A major strength of the book is the vast array of techniques that are presented.

They include musculoskeletal infiltration, such as intra-articular and bursal injections, and peripheral neural blockade.
The inclusion of techniques infrequently encountered in daily practice renders this atlas a particularly useful memory aid. A notable shortcoming, however, is that the descriptions of ultrasound-guided techniques are somewhat abridged when compared with other textbooks covering similar material.
Thus, the level of detail is inadequate for instructing a novice or a practitioner not already familiar with the technique in question.
Another area for improvement would be to offer additional online content in the form of videos and images for the more complex injections.

Finally, although the book contains a section on chest wall and trunk injections, no neuraxial or sympathetic blocks are described. For details on those techniques, however, a complementary text, Atlas of Interventional Pain Management, is available by the same author.
