Stroke, a brusque interruption of blood supply in an area of the brain, has a sudden and frequently devastating impact on both patients and their families. Although stroke is most common in older people, it can occur in individuals of any age, including young adults and children. Fortunately, the prospects for preventing and treating stroke are far better than they were just a few decades ago. However, a lot of challenges await physicians and researchers in terms of prevention, pathogenesis and treatment. Stroke remains a high priority medical condition for our society; globally, about 15 million people suffer of cerebrovascular diseases, with stroke being the most frequent life-threatening neurological disease and the third cause of death and disability. The authors of Advances and Challenges in Stroke hope to guide readers through the complexity of stroke pathogenesis, from the molecular basis to the most recent advances in terms of pathophysiological cascade leading to cell death. Through the expert opinion of Italian and European researchers, multiple aspects will be explored, including the etiology of juvenile or cryptogenic stroke, correlations between the heart and brain, state-of-the-art telemedicine in reducing door to needle and decision-making time, and the contribution of modern neuroimaging techniques and surgical/endovascular treatment in the hyperacute stroke phase.

In arriving at a clinical diagnosis, think of the five most common findings (either historical, physical findings, or laboratory) found in a given disorder. If at least three of these five are not present in a given patient, the diagnosis is likely to be wrong.
C. Miller Fisher
Building on this precept from the great 20th-century neurologist C. Miller Fisher, Drs. Ilya Kister and José Biller have identified the five most common findings for the ‘top 100’ most common and important neurologic syndromes and disorders. The unique format of Top 100 Diagnoses in Neurology includes synopses that tie together the core disease features, illustrations and study questions for each entry, making this book an excellent tool for building a firm knowledge base in neurology and a quick reference for clinicians – neurologists and general practitioners alike.

  • Covers the five core features of 100 of the most important neurologic syndromes and disorders, including polyneuropathies, neurologic vision disorders, movement disorders, epilepsy syndromes, multiple sclerosis, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, opioid overdose, brain tumors, and much more. Icons are used to identify neurologic emergencies and specify disease prevalence (common, rare, very rare).
  • Includes brief introductions to each section that provide an essential clinical context for each area.
  • Features helpful learning tools for each entry, including illustrations of key concepts, mnemonics, clinical pearls; and carefully chosen study questions to encourage further study and test your knowledge. Each entry contains free online references.
  • Helps you quickly refresh your knowledge of specific disorders and ascertain whether your patients’ diagnoses satisfy Fisher’s “three-of-five” rule.

The unifying theme throughout is not only to highlight the technology, but to show how these novel methods are becoming critical to breakthroughs that will lead to advances in our ability to manage and treat human diseases of the brain.

Key Features:

  • Provides the first dedicated book on state-of-the-art optical techniques for sensing and imaging across at the cellular, molecular, network, and whole brain levels.
  • Highlights how the methods are used for measurement, control, and tracking of molecular events in live neuronal cells, both in basic research and clinical practice.
  • Covers the entire spectrum of approaches, from optogenetics to functional methods, photostimulation, optical dissection, multiscale imaging, microscopy, and structural imaging.
  • Includes chapters that show use of voltage-sensitive dye imaging, hemodynamic imaging, multiphoton imaging, temporal multiplexing, multiplane microscopy, optoacoustic imaging, near-infrared spectroscopy, and miniature neuroimaging devices to track cortical brain activity.

This book focuses on the impact of nutritional disorders on the nervous system. Nutritional disorders are caused due to poverty, famine, infestations, ignorance in the developing world and due to food faddism, isolation, depression, addictions, and comorbidities in the developed countries. This book has chapters on various disorders covering basic knowledge, their clinical manifestations, basis and etiology, laboratory diagnosis, method of treatment and prognosis. It provides the guidelines to students and clinicians for dealing with such disorders which are easily preventable and amenable to treatment whose early diagnosis and management can avert morbidity and mortality.

Key Features

    • Deals with the unexplored topic of the neurological impact of nutritional disorders
    • Will be essential for neurologists, general physicians, and pediatricians
  • Includes key illustrated examples from authors’ clinical practice.

The definitive state-of-the-art resource on pediatric endoscopic endonasal approaches

Today, expanded endonasal approaches (EEA) have revolutionized the surgical treatment paradigm for pediatric central skull base lesions. Specially adapted micro-instruments have been developed to permit passage through the narrow sinonasal pathways in children, enabling access to the entire midline skull base, from the crista galli to the cervico-medullary junction.

Pediatric Endoscopic Endonasal Skull Base Surgery by Harminder Singh, Jeffrey Greenfield, Vijay Anand, and Theodore Schwartz is the first textbook focused solely on endoscopic endonasal management of cranial base pathologies in children. The book reflects in-depth expertise from an extraordinary group of international contributors from five continents, who share extensive knowledge on this emerging field. Thirty chapters are presented in three comprehensive sections.

Key Features

Core topics including anatomy, rhinological and anesthetic considerations, patient positioning and OR set-up, instrumentation, and endonasal corridors and approaches
Fifteen chapters detail endoscopic treatment of a full spectrum of pediatric pathologies, such as craniopharyngioma, meningoencephalocele, basilar invagination, and benign and malignant tumors, among others
Discussion of multiple skull-base closure techniques, managing complications, and neurosurgical and otolaryngological postoperative care
Visually rich, the succinct text is enhanced with more than 200 high-quality surgical illustrations and intraoperative photographs, as well as procedural videos
This unique reference is essential reading for neurosurgical and otolaryngology residents and fellows, as well as veteran surgeons, nurse-practitioners, and physician-assistants who treat and care for pediatric patients with skull-base conditions.
