Overview

Vestibular Disorders, Second Edition, uses a case-study approach to outline the principles and practice of the care of patients with dizziness and balance disorders. The text reflects the combined perspectives and experience of a neurologist(Dr. Furman) and a neurotologic surgeon (Dr. Cass). Each case study contains relevant material regarding history, physical examination, laboratory testing, differential diagnosis, and treatment. This material provides a springboard for discussion of either a concept in the field of vestibular disorders or the diagnosis or treatment of a particular disease state. Practical, specific treatment options are discussed throughout the book. For this, the second edition, each of the cases from the first edition has been updated, the background material has been reorganized, and 14 new cases have been added, five of which concern patients with multiple diagnoses. A new part of the book, entitled "Controversial Case Studies," includes ten cases that address a disorder or clinical issue surrounded by a particularly broad range of opinion or uncertainty. Vestibular Disorders, Second Edition aims to span the gap between existing in-depth texts and the problems that arise whenever a patient presents with dizziness.
