Monograph: Ultrasound‐guided Treatment of Peripheral Entrapment Mononeuropathies
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Applications of the Shoulder
The advent of high-resolution neuromuscular ultrasound (US) has provided a useful tool for conservative treatment of peripheral entrapment mononeuropathies. US-guided interventions require careful coordination of transducer and needle movement along with a detailed understanding of sonoanatomy. Preprocedural planning and positioning can be helpful in performing these interventions. Corticosteroid injections, aspiration of ganglia, hydrodissection, and minimally invasive procedures can be useful nonsurgical treatments for mononeuropathies refractory to conservative care. Technical aspects as well as the current understanding of the indications and efficacy of these procedures for common entrapment mononeuropathies are reviewed in this study. Muscle Nerve, 2019 

 Describe the rationale for ultrasound (US)-guided corticosteroid injections, hydrodissection, aspiration of ganglia, and minimally invasive procedures in the treatment of peripheral mononeuropathies.
2) Apply the principles of transducer movement, needle tracking, and sonoanatomy as they pertain to performing US-guided peripheral nerve interventions.
3) Utilize the findings from recent trials on US-guided treatment of peripheral neuropathies to guide treatment decisions for individual patients.
