Special Issue Information
Background: Nerve lesions and pain and compression syndromes are often difficult to diagnose and treat due to the broad spectrum of pathologies and the high degree of specialization being required for optimal treatment. In line with this, the diagnosis and treatment of this spectrum remains an exciting multidisciplinary topic in both neuroscience and reconstructive surgery.
Aim and Scope: We aim to publish articles describing novel personalized medicine approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve lesions and nerve-related pain and compression syndromes.
History: Peripheral nerve surgery has been conducted for over a century, but the problem of correctly diagnosing the type of nerve lesion as well as overcoming slow nerve regeneration remains. Many novel techniques such as nerve transfers have been developed to solve these problems. Likewise, modern imaging methods such as high-resolution nerve sonography and MR-neurography have revolutionized the diagnosis of nerve pathologies.
Cutting-Edge Research: Peripheral nerve research has expanded to groundbreaking basic science studies, novel technologies, genetic studies, and new surgical techniques.
What kinds of papers we are soliciting: We encourage the submission of basic science, translational science and clinical studies regarding peripheral nerve lesions and nerve-related pain and compression syndromes. Exciting case studies or series may also be published if they include a comprehensive review of the literature.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
