Overview

Peripheral Neurology was the first book to innovatively utilize case presentations as a vehicle to teach peripheral neurology. In fact, it was the first to categorize the field of peripheral neurology, as most other neurology texts concentrated on diseases of the central nervous system. This case approach has since been emulated in many other texts and on various web sites. Emphasizing the clinical condition rather than electrodiagnostic technique, each topic is thoroughly addressed, first in the Fundamental Concepts of Part I, and then in multiple Case Studies presented in Part II. The reader is able to simulate a true clinical environment where a diagnosis has to be arrived at with no organizational clues from the text. Formulating conclusions by analyzing the history, physical, and laboratory data, and linking from case to related case, this is the only text which allows this type of "interactive" reading. The book addresses many rare entities that the author is able to present based on his 30-years of experience.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Yevgenya Kaydanova, MD, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This unique collection of case studies represents a broad variety of peripheral neurologic abnormalities. It reflects the 30 years' experience of Dr. Liveson in the application of electrophysiologic techniques in the diagnosis of peripheral nervous system disorders. This third edition discusses more and newer conditions in nonroutine use of electrodiagnostic techniques.
Purpose: This book uses case studies to teach an approach to electrodiagnosis in peripheral neurology. The objective of this extensive sampling is to broaden the examination.
Audience: According to the author, this book is written for physicians who perform electrodiagnostic tests, those who rely on test results, and those who interpret them. It also would be interesting for neurologists in academic settings, medical students, physiatrists, orthopedists, and peripheral neurosurgeons.
Features: Part one discusses the individual lessons on fundamental concepts of clinical electrophysiology. Part two is a collection of 116 cases illustrating the spectrum of lesions in peripheral neurology. The best aspect is the broad exposure of the disorders of the peripheral nervous system. In each case review, the author proceeds from careful history and neurological examination to electrodiagnostic measure and to final diagnosis. In addition, the author provides complete references and pertinent illustrations for each case study. Three appendixes provide readers with shortcuts to information on final diagnosis, suggested syllabi, and indexes of diagnosis.
Assessment: This is an absolutely unique book in the field of clinical electrophysiology of the peripheral nervous system. The author makes a great contribution to diagnostic, clinical, and academic neurology. He shares his outstanding experience as an electromyographer, clinician, and dedicated teacher. His sense of humor, ability to simplify complicated issues, and strong scientific logic make reading this book pleasant and very useful from an educational standpoint. This third edition gives an opportunity to learn more about newer applications of modern electrodiagnostic techniques for diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nervous system disorders.
