Overview

Balance Disorders: A Case-Study Approach is the first reference to address balance disorders from a case-study perspective. The text reflects the dual perspective of a neurologist and otolaryngologist and covers both medical and surgical treatments. Three groups of case studies focus on various aspects of the evaluation of the patient with vertigo or balance disorder, patients with common balance disorders, and cases whose balance is disrupted by unusual diseases. Cases become increasingly difficult in moving through the text. Each case is based on an actual patient and points to a clearly stated teaching focus. Each also contains questions and answers, and a summary of points for review.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Alan G Micco, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book uses a problem-based format to work through numerous balance disorders. It begins with several introductory chapters to review the workup and evaluation of patients with dizziness. Several sections present multiple disorders, starting with more common disorders and progressing to rare disorders. Each patient workup provides the reader with an appropriate evaluation, including ancillary tests and treatment/management strategy.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the reader with pertinent information about dizziness in a manner in which one works everyday: a patient encounter-type scenario.
Audience: Although the author does not distinctly indicate the audience, it appears the book is directed toward residents and practitioners of otolaryngology and neurotology. The book may also be of benefit to senior medical students.
Features: The main feature is the book's problem-based learning format. It is very easy to follow. Each chapter has helpful teaching points at the end of each case.
Assessment: This is a great addition to the field. The authors are well known and respected in their areas of expertise. The book progresses nicely to bring the reader through more and more difficult diagnoses. The references are pertinent and correct, and the illustrations are helpful. This is a very useful textbook for anyone dealing with patients with balance disorders.
