Peripheral Nerve Injuries: Principles of Diagnosis
Originally published in 1942 and updated in 1953, this edition is packed with everything a physician should know about peripheral nerve injuries. Peripheral Nerve Injuries contains detailed description of the anatomy of the peripheral nervous system and the techniques used to test the various portions of the peripheral nervous system by physical examination. The basics of muscle testing as well as the relationships of the muscles to the nerves are still as utilitarian today. Topics included in Peripheral Nerve Injuries: -General principles of the composition of segmental nerves, plexuses and peripheral nerves -The innervation of skin and muscles by spinal segments -The distribution of peripheral nerves -Innervation of the skeleton, and disorders of bones and joint tissues resulting from nerve injuries -Manifestations of peripheral nerve injuries -An analysis of the movements tested in neurological examination -Classification, causes and symptomatology of peripheral nerve injuries -And much more.

Page 33 - The spinal cord (see also p. 27) is approximately cylindrical in form and has a length of from 43 to 45 cm. It is continuous with the medulla oblongata of the brain at the foramen magnum and terminates in the tapered conus medullaris at the lower border of the first lumbar vertebra or the upper border of the second.

At the upper level of the soleus muscle the tibial goes over into the posterior tibial nerve, which, on reaching the sole of the foot, divides into medial and lateral plantar nerves. The common peroneal nerve divides into the superficial peroneal and deep peroneal nerves, both of which ultimately reach the dorsum of the foot.
