Book Description :

Everything you need to know about neuromuscular disease-in one concise, full-color volume Neuromuscular Disorders is comprehensive in scope, yet concise enough to serve as a valuable point-of-care guide for your day-to-day clinical practice. Grounded by numerous reference sources and enhanced by the experience of two seasoned clinicians, this text provides a pragmatic approach to the evaluation and management of neuromuscular disease. Here, in a single source, you'll get an insightful look at both nerve and muscle conditions, ranging from motor neuron diseases to neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, and myopathies. The book opens with the clinical and laboratory approach to patients with neuromuscular disease, covering electrodiagnostic testing, nerve conduction studies, and muscle and nerve histopathology. With an emphasis on effective diagnosis and treatment, the substance of the text examines the full spectrum of specific neuromuscular diseases, giving you the “big picture” of the discipline in a way that no other text can match. FEATURES: Convenient coverage of both nerve, muscle and neuromuscular transmission disorders-both primary and secondary neuromuscular diseases Specific disease sections encompass the range of conditions likely to be encountered in clinical practice, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, radiculopathies and plexopathies, mononeuropathies, various polyneuropathies, toxic myopathies, and dozens more The very latest diagnosis and treatment recommendations and protocols based on the most recent clinical literature and research Well-illustrated with EMGs, histopathology, and clinical photos

Book Description :

This book provides a concise overview of the diagnosis and therapy of a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders, in tabulated form and with illustrative cases. Treating neuromuscular disorders calls for a sound, step-by-step clinical approach based on differential diagnosis and laboratory investigations. Yet to date, there has been no single, compact book that offers all the relevant information related to the management of these disorders. This book fills that gap, presenting the state of the art in the field and addressing practical problems together with their solutions. Each chapter covers disorder characteristics, clinical differentiating points, relevant investigations and their interpretation, available genetic testing, best management approaches and counselling. Illustrative cases provide valuable insights, while extensive tables and illustrations mean that information can be rapidly found.

Book Description :

In many cases of neuromuscular disorders the physician is faced with a complete lack of therapeutic approaches. This helplessness places the doctor in a position of conflict between his desire to help and his awareness that there is no treatment. In this situation it is tempting to indiscriminately use any procedure that avoids an admission of medical helplessness while satisfying the patient's demand for treatment. Electrical interventions are often used to avoid this situation. Due to the random use of therapeutic approaches it is not known what really happens. Presumptions and biased empirical observations have led to the exten sive use of different forms of electrical stimulation regimes in neuromuscular diseases. Due to this unsatisfactory situation it is necessary to know more about appropriate methods that are being used in particular disorders. The search for a better understanding of nerve-muscle interaction has shown that certain activity patterns can influence muscle. These experi mental results provide a rational basis for a possible therapeutic use of electrical stimulation of nerve and muscle. Previously most research has been conducted in normal tissue, and little is known regarding the re sponses of diseased muscle. In an interdisciplinary approach to this, it is our intention to present the current knowledge about basic principles of electrical stimulation in normal muscle. Before electrical stimulation can be accepted as a therapeutic tool, we felt it necessary to summarize the effects of activity in normal and diseased muscle and nerve.

Book Description :

The newborn child’s immature nervous system makes early diagnosis of some neurological disorders difficult: it is often only the passage of time which clarifies the severity and pattern. Careful analysis of motor skills, vision, hearing and speech allows us to assess milestones. Progress from head control to sitting, standing and the maturation of gait should be orderly. Informed examination and the chapter on gait analysis highlight this development. Chapters in this book describe neural tube defects, the recognition and management of cerebral palsy and, lest we forget, poliomyelitis. The book is completed by considering the muscular dystrophies and arthrogryposis.

Book Description :

Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, the Oxford Textbook of Neuromuscular Disorders covers the scientific basis, clinical diagnosis, and treatment of neuromuscular disorders with a particular focus on the most clinically relevant disorders. The book is organized into seven sections, starting with the general approach to the patient with neuromuscular disorders and then focusing on specific neuromuscular conditions affecting the peripheral nervous system from its origins at the spinal cord anterior horn on its outward course to their effector muscles and the inbound sensory pathways. Chapters on specific neuromuscular conditions are illustrated with typical case histories and their presenting features, allowing readers to put rarer conditions into their clinical context more easily. The concurrent online version allows access to the full content of the textbook, contains links from the references to primary research journal articles, allows full text searches, and provides access to figures and tables that can be downloaded to PowerPointRG. This textbook will serve as a useful reference for neurologists and specialist trainees in neurology, neuroscientists, neurophysiologists, and other healthcare professionals.
