Overview

Praise for this book :

This is a good resource for general otolaryngologists or otolaryngology residents. Chapters are well organized with excellent and helpful illustrations, photos, and diagrams and supplemented by videos that can be viewed online. — Doody Enterprises, Inc.

Containing detailed injection instructions, Botulinum Neurotoxin for Head and Neck Disorders and the associated how-to videos offer otolaryngologists, neurologists, pain specialists, and others a complete guide to the management of motor, sensory and autonomic disorders of the head and neck region with botulinum neurotoxin. It covers treatment methods for conditions ranging from hyperfunctional motor disorders (dystonia, tremor, dysphagia), to afferent pain disorders (temporomandibular joint disorder, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia) to autonomic disorders (hypersalivation, Frey's syndrome). In each of the indications, the written material reviews the effects of the toxin on the nervous system, central pain thresholds, and central motor pathways.

Special Features:

  • Reviews the pharmacology, indications, mechanisms of action, and technique for each use of botulinum neurotoxin
  • Provides detailed information on the anatomy, treatment methods, follow-up care, and possible complications for each disorder
  • Includes online access to professionally produced videos in which Dr. Blitzer demonstrates injection techniques for the disorders in the book
  • Contains vivid, full color illustrations and photographs that clarify information in the text

Focusing specifically on injection techniques for the therapeutic uses of botulinum neurotoxin for treating head and neck disorders, this manual fills an important gap in the literature. It gives clinicians current, authoritative, and in-depth information on administering botulinum neurotoxin most effectively for the head and neck disorders of their patients.

Dr. Blitzer honored in Best Doctors 2012 issue of New York Magazine

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Inna Athar Husain, M.D.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This how-to manual for different applications of Botox in the head and neck region includes online video demonstrations to accompany the text and illustrations/photos.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce techniques for using Botox in the head and neck region. This is a worthy objective because Botox is a minimally invasive treatment that is being used with increasing frequency in the outpatient setting.
Audience: The book is written for general otolaryngologists or residents in otolaryngology who may be interested in incorporating the use of Botox into their practice.
Features: It addresses the different uses for Botox, such as in the treatment of various head and neck dystonias, including spasmodic dystonia and facial dystonia, other motor disorders such as esophageal spasm or hyperfunctioning facial lines, pain syndromes such as migraines, and autonomic disorders such as sialorrhea. The book does a good job of organizing the sections with easy-to-follow text, a good mixture of illustrations with real-life photos, and online video resources. One shortcoming is that it does not provide any evidence-based literature to support the different techniques.
Assessment: This is a good resource for general otolaryngologists or otolaryngology residents. Chapters are well organized with excellent and helpful illustrations, photos, and diagrams and supplemented by videos that can be viewed online.
