This article is a practical review update on ultrasound (US)-guided interventional procedures on peripheral nerves. Technical considerations, biopsy techniques, and some examples of injections are described. US is considered a safe imaging guidance for interventional procedures, due to its high spatial resolution and the possibility to image the needle and inject drugs in real time. US-guided injections could be considered a diagnostic and therapeutic option in the most common neuropathy, before or as an alternative to surgery. US-guided injection techniques in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, meralgia paresthetica, and Morton neuroma are reviewed. US-guided injections of the iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal, genitofemoral, and pudendal nerve are also illustrated. Knowledge of anatomy is crucial; therefore a brief description of the courses of anatomical nerves and clinical notes are also reported. Treatment of stump neuromas treatment was excluded.
