Neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring (IOM) neurologic monitoring during complex operative procedures is increasingly used to help prevent damage to the nervous system during surgery. Intraoperative Neurophysiology discusses all aspects of IOM with a hands- on approach to this challenging and exciting new frontier. Everything is covered from set-up, monitoring and mapping, troubleshooting, interpretation of results, and medical management. Interweaving contributions from neurologists and surgeons, the book presents a practical integrated blueprint for effective neurophysiological testing in the operating theater.
Intraoperative Neurophysiology is visual and comprehensive in scope and coverage. It begins by reviewing basic neurophysiologic and neuroanatomic knowledge and presents detailed technical information on each basic test, providing the foundation necessary for choosing the right test and customizing monitoring and mapping according to the specifics of individual surgical procedures.

Intraoperative Neurophysiology utilizes a unique structure to provide insights into successful monitoring practices and techniques. The book uses the steps of each surgical procedure as the skeleton upon which the IOM procedure is built, thereby presenting a developmental step-by-step approach to IOM procedures and the possible complications and pitfalls – that may arise at different moments of the surgery. In addition, it promotes and encourages the use of EEG in the operating room, and offers unprecedented coverage of ECoG, functional mapping, and EEG monitoring.

With over 275 illustrations, numerous tables, and the most important clinical points made in writing and exemplified graphically, Intraoperative Neurophysiology: Monitoring and Mapping delivers in words and pictures everything one needs to know to master the art and science of intraoperative neurophysiologic procedure and reduce the operative risk of neurological damage in surgical patients.

Top 100 Diagnoses in Neurology 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Top 100 Diagnoses in Neurology 1st Edition
Oct 292021
 

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.

Quantitative MRI of the Brain: Principles of Physical Measurement, Second edition (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) 2nd Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Quantitative MRI of the Brain: Principles of Physical Measurement, Second edition (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) 2nd Edition
Oct 272021
 

Building on the success of the first edition of this book, the winner of the 2004 British Medical Association Radiology Medical Book Competition, Quantitative MRI of the Brain: Principles of Physical Measurement gives a unique view on how to use an MRI machine in a new way. Used as a scientific instrument it can make measurements of a myriad of physical and biological quantities in the human brain and body. For each small tissue voxel, non-invasive information monitors how tissue changes with disease and responds to treatment.

The book opens with a detailed exposition of the principles of good practice in quantification, including fundamental concepts, quality assurance, MR data collection and analysis and improved study statistical power through minimised instrumental variation. There follow chapters on 14 specific groups of quantities: proton density, T1, T2, T2*, diffusion, advanced diffusion, magnetisation transfer, CEST, 1H and multi-nuclear spectroscopy, DCE-MRI, quantitative fMRI, arterial spin-labelling and image analysis, and finally a chapter on the future of quantification. The physical principles behind each quantity are stated, followed by its biological significance. Practical techniques for measurement are given, along with pitfalls and examples of clinical applications.

This second edition of this indispensable ‘how to’ manual of quantitative MR shows the MRI physicist and research clinician how to implement these techniques on an MRI scanner to understand more about the biological processes in the patient and physiological changes in healthy controls. Although focussed on the brain, most techniques are applicable to characterising tissue in the whole body.

This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to use the gamut of modern quantitative MRI methods to measure the effects of disease, its progression, and its response to treatment.

Features:

  • The first edition was awarded the book prize for Radiology by the British Medical Association in 2004
  • Written by an authority in the field: Professor Tofts has an international reputation for quantification in MRI
  • Gives specific ‘how to’ information for implementation of MRI measurement sequence techniques

Neuromodulation for Facial Pain (Progress in Neurological Surgery Book 35) 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neuromodulation for Facial Pain (Progress in Neurological Surgery Book 35) 1st Edition
Oct 232021
 

Neuropathic pain involving the face can be very severe and disabling; often, it is hard to control with conventional means and requires use of unconventional interventions on various parts of the trigeminal nociceptive pathways. For the last 60 years, neuromodulation has been used specifically for the treatment of intractable pain in different parts of the human body, including the face and head region. Despite such a long history and existence of many neuromodulation targets, there has not been a dedicated book that would summarize the entire spectrum of neuromodulation approaches that have been – and still are – used for treatment of facial pain. This book begins with dedicated chapters on classification of facial pain and anatomy of facial pain pathways and then dives into specific applications of neuromodulation starting from the periphery all the way to cerebral centers of pain processing, covering both invasive and non-invasive approaches. Written by experts from all over the word, the book offers an up-to-date comprehensive summary of neuromodulation techniques and modalities, providing the readers with a practical guide on clinical details of patient selection, modulation parameters, procedural details, and expected outcomes that may be used in daily clinical practice dealing with most difficult facial pain conditions.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach 1st Edition
Oct 212021
 

Neurology is primarily characterized by a variety of diseases which seem very similar and are therefore difficult to distinguish between. Skill at differential diagnosis is therefore absolutely paramount.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis is a streamlined handbook of prioritized differential diagnosis, to be used both in clinical practice and for exam review.

By presenting differential diagnosis in order of frequency and importance, this book provides a practical handbook for clinicians in training, as well as a potential resource for quick board review. Whilst the book covers the most important syndromes and disease entities, readers are referred to other texts for more exhaustive differentials. By limiting differentials in this way – to the most likely and most serious diagnoses – the reader can more easily recall relevant disease processes when faced with a particular clinical situation, whether it be a patient in the emergency room or a difficult question on the board examination.

The book specifically targets neurology residents and fellows, with overlap to neurosurgery and psychiatry. Internal medicine physicians with an interest in neurological problems and medical students looking for an edge in clinical neuroscience would also benefit from this text.

The content is primarily mid-level material, in a pedagogic format.

In order to organize the students’ thought processes concise tables and line drawing templates are included. The book is organized into broad chapters by type of disorder and some overlap occurs between particular chapters.
