About this Book
A practical framework for patients with problems that localize to the neuromuscular system
Our understanding of neuromuscular disease has advanced greatly in recent years. This has brought increased treatment options but also increased complexity. Diagnosis remains predominantly a clinical exercise. Early and accurate diagnosis coupled with modern medical management can increase the life quality and life expectancy of patients with neuromuscular disease.
Neuromuscular Disorders presents a practical framework for managing patients with neuromuscular dysfunction. It covers the spectrum of disease from the common to the rare with handy tips and tricks to improve clinical practice. Beginning with a guide to clinical diagnosis it includes:
- Disorders of the neuromuscular junction
- Disorders of peripheral nerve
- Disorders of motor neurons
Clinical in approach, practical in execution, Neuromuscular Disorders will help you diagnose and manage your patients more effectively.
