Natural history and treatment outcome of disease are of critical importance to patients, clinicians and health care providers across the full range of medical disciplines. In many specialties, such as neurology and neurosurgery, this sort of information can be hard to obtain in the absence of extensive outcome studies and agreed measures of outcome in different conditions. This volume seeks to help inform about effective care and rehabilitation by providing a succinct review of whatever data is available for the majority of conditions encountered in clinical practice. Particular attention has been given to the evaluation of the severity and outcome of each disorder and to advise on comparing risks and benefits of treatment. This resource will prove invaluable to all involved in informing patients of treatment options and making important cost-efficient decisions on care. It should also be welcomed in the planning of clinical trials for potential new therapies and as a reference in medicolegal spheres.

Book Description:

Knowledge of the outcome of treatment and intervention in neurology and neurosurgery is important for patients, physicians, surgeons and health planners. The management strategies employed in the treatment of these disorders must be based on evidence of efficacy. Individual clinicians need to know what to expect from application of certain treatments and should aim to replicate the best results in their own practice. This book provides a review of the data in relation to most conditions met in clinical practice.

Review:

'With the plethora of authoritative neurology textbooks, do we need another? This new publication, I believe, makes a strong case that we do ... Professor Swash must be congratulated on this massive endeavour ... The publishers have also done a wonderful job, with excellently laid out tables and clear diagrams.' Journal of The Royal Society of Medicine

'... an ideal introduction to those wishing to appreciate the clinical as well as financial implications of the therapies which are in today's repertoire. In attempting to bring outcome measures, outcomes, and financial aspects to our minds, this book certainly does achieve its goal.' Cephalalgia

'The authors are obvious experts in their fields and impart knowledged in a concise and easily understood manner ... The book is exhaustively referenced and when read selectively is a very valuable source of information.' Neuroradiology
