Surgical Anatomy of the Cervical Plexus and its Branches, 1st Edition
Demonstrates the surgical anatomy of each branch of the cervical plexus using fresh cadaveric dissections.
Color-codes nerves to differentiate them from other tissues and dissects them in a layer-by-layer manner.
Complies the knowledge and expertise of renowned clinical anatomists and researchers in this key area of surgical anatomy.
