Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vijaya Patil, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book provides a convenient summary of neuromuscular function and comprehensive review of basic, clinical and electrodiagnostic aspects of neuromuscular diseases.
Purpose: Rapid advances have been made, especially in the last decade, in our understanding of the function of the neuromuscular system, the many ways in which the normal function can become disordered, and the accurate diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. The authors have attempted to provide, in a single, all-encompassing, two-volume book an account of the essential molecular, physiological and anatomical underpinnings of the peripheral and related central components of the neuromuscular system; pathophysiology of neuromuscular disorders; clinical features and differential diagnosis of the various neuromuscular diseases; and the place of electrophysiological testing in the diagnosis and management of neuromuscular disorders. These are worthy objectives.
Audience: The authors hope that this book is a useful aid to clinicians, clinical neurophysiologists, and others who deal with patients who have neuromuscular diseases as well as basic scientists who work on the fundamental aspects of disordered neuromuscular function. This book is of great value to neurologists in training, practicing neurologists and neurophysiologists and physicians from other specialties who deal with patients with neuromuscular diseases.
Features: Volume I provides information about basic molecular, physiological and pathophysiological basis of neuromuscular diseases. It also includes sections on autonomic and respiratory systems, imaging techniques, age-related changes in neuromuscular system and technical aspects of neuromuscular testing. Volume II focuses on clinical features of the neuromuscular diseases and on the practical applications of electrophysiological tests to their diagnosis and management. The tables, graphs and photographs in the entire book are of high quality. The explanations that follow the graphs and photographs are complete and lucid. The references at the end of each chapter are complete, exhaustive, and current.
Assessment: The book provides a good review of the basic, clinical and electrodiagnostic aspects of neuromuscular diseases. The authors have done an excellent job of summarizing data about the major advances in the neuromuscular field. It definitely is a useful aid to all clinicians involved in the management of patients with neuromuscular disorders and all basic scientists who work on the fundamental aspects of disordered neuromuscular function.
From The Critics
Written by an international group of specialists, this comprehensive reference provides an account of the molecular, physiological, and anatomical underpinnings of the neuromuscular system, the pathophysiology of disorders, their clinical features and diagnosis. The use and interpretation of electrophysiological testing is described for identification, localization, and characterization. Each chapter is illustrated with drawings and diagrams and contains a full list of references. Topics include basic neurophysiology of nerve fibers, peripheral motor system, neuromuscular transmission, polyneuropathies, radiculopathis, plexopathies, disorders of the cranial nerves, and pediatric disorders.

Meet the Author

Dr. Michael J. Aminoff is an internationally recognized, board-certified neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist who works at UCSF Medical Center and specializes in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, holding an endowed chair in Parkinson’s disease research. Aminoff was educated in England, graduating with honors from University College in London in 1962 and as a physician from University College Hospital Medical School in 1965. He completed postdoctoral training in various London teaching hospitals, but especially at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London, and at its affiliated Institute of Neurology, where his research on spinal physiology gained him an MD degree (an advanced research thesis in the UK). He joined UCSF Medical Center in 1974, becoming a full professor in 1982; the title of distinguished professor was conferred on him in 2010. In 2000, he was awarded a doctorate in science (an advanced doctorate in the Faculty of Science) from the University of London. He has received numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (2006) and the A.B.Baker Award from the American Academy of Neurology (2007). He was the editor-in-chief of Muscle and Nerve, a major neuroscience journal for 10 years; serves on the editorial boards of several other medical and scientific journals; and has authored nearly 250 research publications as well as numerous books. Dr. Aminoff is also editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Neurological Sciences and series editor of the multivolume Handbook of Clinical Neurology (Elsevier).
