Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kavilaveettil J Reena, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a wonderful narrative about clinical implications for vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) and how it works. This attractive book has an accompanying CD-ROM with video footage of the procedure.
Purpose: The authors hope this book will enhance physicians' use of VNS. Indeed the book helps physicians to understand the basic principles behind how VNS works, even though it is speculative theory so far. The fact is, no one knows how it works. It is difficult to say how many physicians would start using VNS as a result of reading this book.
Audience: "The book is directed primarily at physicians and other healthcare workers such as surgery nurses, although it would be helpful for patients as well, since the last few chapters address issues of interest to them. "
Features: The book addresses VNS from the perspective of anatomy, speculation about how it works, and clinical implications including the new chapters covering the use of VNS in depression and obesity. Chapter 8, which deals with the practical considerations of VNS, is very useful to both physicians and patients.
Assessment: This is a very useful book in terms of its complete and concise description of VNS therapy and its varied clinical usefulness. The material is presented well with useful diagrams. Since there are a few new indications for VNS since it was FDA approved five years ago, this book helps to review those new applications.
