Overview

Designed for the busy practitioner, Neuromuscular provides succinct coverage of the assessment and treatment of a wide spectrum of neuromuscular diseases and conditions ranging from common to extremely rare and from relatively benign to universally fatal. Including more than 90 topics presented in a consistent format for maximum clinical utility, this nuts and bolts resource delivers point-of-care information for effectively managing peripheral nerve disorders and neuromuscular pathologies. The book is organized in seven broad sections covering mononeuropathies, polyneuropathies, the neuromuscular junction, motor neuron disease, radiculopathies and plexopathies, muscle diseases, and movement disorders. Within these sections the authors address the individual and varied diseases and syndromes that comprise the field of neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine and offer a clinical roadmap for evaluation and treatment. With the improvement of function as the primary goal, the book focuses on diagnoses usually managed by neurologists and physiatrists and facilitates the relationship between these fields in the treatment of neuromuscular disease.

Every entry is standardized for quick look-up in the office or clinic, and features description, etiology, risk factors, clinical features, natural history, diagnosis, red flags, treatment, prognosis, helpful hints, and suggested readings.

All Rehabilitation Medicine Quick Reference titles provide:

  • Consistent Approach and Organization—at-a-glance outline format allows readers to find the facts they need instantly
  • Concise Coverage—of must-know information broken down into easy-to-locate topics
  • Fast Answers to Clinical Questions—diagnostic and management criteria for problems commonly encountered in daily practice

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a good, quick reference to neuromuscular disorders that can be used in clinical practice." - Doody's Reviews
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher Dennis Reger, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This is a quick reference guide to the many neuromuscular diseases that clinicians in neurology and physical medicine and rehabilitation may encounter in their patients. Typically, each disorder is covered in one to two pages with a brief description, clinical features, pertinent examination features, treatments, and a few suggested readings.
Purpose: The authors intend this to be a helpful resource for use in daily clinical practice.
Audience: The intended audience includes all clinicians, but the book seems most appropriate for residents to use as a quick reference for neuromuscular disorders. Practitioners may use it periodically if they see a patient with a disorder that they are not familiar with.
Features: The book presents brief reviews of common mononeuropathies, polyneuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, radiculopathies, plexopathies, motor neuron diseases, muscle diseases, and movement disorders, as well as the many subcategories of each disorder. The well-organized index makes it easy to quickly find the disorder of interest. The main shortcoming is the lack of pictures demonstrating appropriate clinical tests used in diagnosis. It would also be helpful to have a few more references for each disorder, rather than just the typical two that are presented.
Assessment: This is a good, quick reference to neuromuscular disorders that can be used in clinical practice. Since the coverage of each topic is brief, I would recommend that any future editions should include more references for each disorder for additional pertinent information, as well as pictures illustrating key clinical tests or examinations.
