About this Item

Everything you need to know about neuromuscular disease--in one concise, full-color volume ".this book will become an indispensable resource for clinicians involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with neuromuscular diseases, as well as for scientists working on the nature and pathogenesis of these disorders. It is a much-needed and welcome addition to the neurological literature and will rapidly gain acceptance as a standard work of reference."--Michael J. Aminoff, MD, DSc, FRCP, (from the foreword) 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 Table of contents Neuromuscular Disorders Foreword, Michael J.
