Book Description :

The use of animal models is a key aspect of scientific research in numerous fields of medicine. Movement Disorders, Second Edition vigorously examines the important contributions and application of animal models to the understanding of human movement disorders, and serves as an essential resource for basic neuroscientists engaged in movement disorders research. Academic clinicians, translational researchers and basic scientists are brought together to connect experimental findings made in different animal models to the clinical features, pathophysiology and treatment of human movement disorders. The book is divided into sections on Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, dystonia, tremor, paroxysmal movement disorders, ataxia, myoclonus, restless legs syndrome, drug-induced movement disorders, multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy/corticobasal degeneration, and spasticity. This book serves as an essential resource for both clinicians interested in the science being generated with animal models and basic scientists studying the pathogenesis of particular movement disorders. Introduces the scientific foundations for modern movement disorders research Contributing authors are internationally known experts Completely revised with 20% new material Provides a comprehensive discussion of genetics for each type of movement disorder Covers Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, dystonia, tremors, and tics

Book Description :

Movement disorders are a complex group of disorders spanning all aspects of neurological illnesses and range from conditions characterized by too little movement (hypokinesis) to those where movement is excessive (hyperkinesis). The classic example would be Parkinson’s disease, while other movement-related problems, such as tremor, chorea, dystonia, myoclonus, hemiballism and tics, occur in a range of inherited, drug-induced and sporadic disorders. Genetics plays an important part in the genesis of several conditions characterized by various movement disorders, such as Huntington’s disease, dystonic conditions and myoclonus. Somatization from psychologically determined conditions can also manifest as movement disorders. Finally, sleep may be affected by movement disorders and a typical example would be restless legs syndrome. To non-experts, movement disorders may appear to be complex, sometimes bizarre and difficult to manage. Diagnosis is based mostly on observation and examination rather than radiology and serological assessments. This comp- hensive handbook deals with all the above movement disorders in a holistic manner, providing a detailed “snapshot” view of these complex disorders. As well as being useful to the general physician working in clinical settings where movement disorders often first present, such as accident and emergency depa- ments or in primary care, we hope that the up-to-date information will be useful for trainees and experts in the field of movement disorders. Chapter 1 Parkinson’s disease Kartik Logishetty and K Ray Chaudhuri Introduction Parkinson’s disease was first described by the London physician, James Parkinson, in 1817 and later named after him by Charcot.

Book Description :

Movement Disorder Emergencies: Diagnosis and Treatment provides a fresh and unique approach to what is already a high-profile subspecialty area in clinical neurology. The disorders covered in this volume are standard fare in the field but emphasize the urgencies and emergencies that can occur. One of the very attractive features of the field of movement disorders is that diagnosis is often based on unique visible and sometimes audible phenomenological symptoms and signs. Therefore, in this era of highly sophisticated laboratory and radiological diagnostic tools, the diagnosis of many movement disorders is still largely made in the clinic where pattern recognition is key. Crucial to astute clinical diagnosis is broad clinical experience. In short, you have to have seen one to recognize one! Patients with movement disorders nearly always present as outpatients but, as aptly recognized by Drs. Frucht and Fahn, this may include acute manifestations leading to emergency presentations, often in an emergency room setting, where they are very likely to be unrecognized and therefore poorly managed. The authors define an “emergency” movement disorder as one in which failure to promptly diagnose and treat may result in significant morbidity or mortality. However, they also stress the importance of certain “can’t miss” diagnoses such as Wilson’s disease, dopa-responsive dystonia, and Whipple’s disease in which delayed diagnosis in less emergent situations can lead to slowly evolving and often irreversible neurological damage with tragic consequences.

Book Description :

Hyperkinetic movement disorders comprise a range of diseases characterized by unwanted and uncontrollable, or poorly controllable, involuntary movements. The phenomenology of these disorders is quite variable encompassing chorea, tremor, dystonia, myoclonus, tics, other dyskinesias, jerks and shakes. Discerning the underlying condition can be very difficult given the range and variability of symptoms. But recognizing the phenomenology and understanding the pathophysiology are essential to ensure appropriate treatment. Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders provides a clinical pathway for effective diagnosis and management of these disorders. The stellar international cast of authors distils the evidence so you can apply it into your practice. The judicious use of diagnostic criteria algorithms rating scales management guidelines Provides a robust framework for clear patient management.

Book Description :

The human nervous system-that most complex organization of energy and matter-has yielded a few glimmers of understanding of its operational me chanics during the last two decades. These have mostly been at the biochemical level of structure and function. Throughout history, as one of the mysteries of nature begins to yield some insights into its function, it has been beneficial to look at it from different points of view. We have developed a volume on movement disorders that is primarily directed toward the biochemical understanding of these disorders and their treatment. Each disorder is presented from several points of view. Although this approach leads to some repetition, it is our aim that the final outcome be a more complete understanding. Much has been written about movement: the beauty of the prima ballerina, the strength of the olympic athlete, and the agility of the surgeon. Seldom do we stop to look beneath the surface-the coordination of muscle groups, the finely tuned balance allowing rapid response in either direction, the individual muscle fibers coordinated to maximize strength and agility, and the nerve fibers connecting muscle with nerve centers. Some of these communicate sensory input of position to the centers while others communicate directions of move ment to muscles. We encourage our readers to be constantly alert to the possibility of in creasing their understanding of other nervous system functions, including thought disorder, through an understanding of movement, either in general principle or by specific chemical interaction.

Written for busy practitioners who need an immediate reference at the bedside, it presents medical, behavioral, surgical, and nonpharmacological approaches in an expanded outline and bulleted format. The revised and expanded second edition is divided into four convenient sections. The medical section provides a starting point for assessing and treating patients who present with a movement disorder and guides practitioners through the clinical presentation, diagnosis, and work up of all major disease categories. A new section on psychiatric issues delves into the behavioral features that typically manifest with Parkinson disease, Huntington disease, Tourette syndrome, and also covers conversion disorders with concomitant movement abnormalities. The surgical approach section has been completely updated to incorporate recent advances in functional neurosurgery including deep brain stimulation. The final section on non-pharmacologic therapies includes informative chapters on physical and occupational therapy, speech and swallowing evaluation and therapy, and nutrition.
