This text provides a concise yet comprehensive review of common neurologic disorders. The pathophysiology, presentation, diagnosis, and management of these entities is discussed in detail in a clear, easy to understand format. The focus is on patients presented with vertigo, disequilibrium, hearing loss, pulsatile and non-pulsatile tinnitus, facial nerve weakness, and complications of the otitis media. Vascular tumors and anomalies, trauma to the temporal bone, Meniere's disease, as well as cerebellopontine lesions such as vestibular schwannoma and meningioma will be discussed with special emphasis on clinical applications. The appropriate diagnostic work up and treatment options as well as controversies will be discussed in the context of evidence-based medicine and "best practice" approach. Judicious use of MRI/CT scanning and audio-vestibular testing relevant for each pathology is discussed in detail. Appropriate illustrations and tables will summarize algorithms and protocols for managing these disorders making this text an easy-to-digest medical resource. A comprehensive reference list is provided.
Baloh and Honrubia's Clinical Neurophysiology of the Vestibular System
Kevin Kerber, Robert W. Baloh
editore: Oxford University Press Inc
This book provides a framework for understanding the pathophysiology of diseases involving the vestibular system. The book is divided into four parts: I. Anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system; II. Evaluation of the dizzy patient; III. Diagnosis and management of common neurotologic disorders; and IV. Symptomatic treatment of vertigo. Part I reviews the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system with emphasis on clinically relevant material. Part II outlines the important features in the patient's history, examination, and laboratory evaluation that determine the probable site of lesion. Part III covers the differential diagnostic points that help the clinician decide on the cause and treatment of the patient's problem. Part IV describes the commonly used antivertiginous and antiemetic drugs and the rationale for vestibular exercises. The recent breakthroughs in the vestibular sciences are reviewed. This book will helpful to all physician's who study and treat patients complaining of dizziness.
Rieducazione delle vertigini di origine periferica
Rieducazione delle vertigini di origine periferica di Jean-Luc Sagniez, edito da Fisiocorsi. Questo lavoro apre una porta su una problematica con la quale il Fisioterapista si ritrova spesso a doversi confrontare: le vertigini. Il manuale aiuta a capire meglio cosa sono e soprattutto permette di fare un bilancio differenziale tra le vertigini il cui trattamento sarà di pertinenza medica e quelle che invece saranno suscettibili di un intervento riabilitativo. A completamento dell'opera vi è una dettagliata descrizione degli esercizi di rieducazione vestibolare,dei test di differenziazione e sulla manovra liberatoria per le VPPB. Rieducazione delle vertigini di origine periferica è indirizzato a tutti gli operatori sanitari, e in particolare ai fisioterapisti e ai medici. Questo libro è anche cercato come: Rieducazione delle vertigini Fisiocorsi, Rieducazione delle vertigini Sagniez
Vertigo and Disequilibrium
A Practical Guide to Diagnosis and Management
Peter C. Weber
editore: Thieme Publishing Group
Here is a highly practical reference for diagnosing and managing some of the most common complaints in the otolaryngology patient--vertigo, disequilibrium, and dizziness. This carefully organized reference begins by presenting descriptions of time-tested examination techniques, laboratory tests, and the imaging studies necessary for an accurate diagnosis. The book then addresses the various diseases causing these complaints, including Meniere's disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, labyrinthitis, migraine-induced vestibulopathy, and more, with concise explanations of medical, surgical, and therapeutic treatment options available. An accompanying DVD features high-quality videos of key examination tests, such as ENG, Hallpike positioning, and Epley's maneuver. The videos document the numerous nystagmus patterns caused by various central pathologies and peripheral vestibulopathies, providing an exceptional tool for learning how to recognize eye movements to confirm a diagnosis. Features: -A full review of anatomy and physiology provides the essential framework for the clinical examination and comprehension of disease processes -Broad discussion of the multifactorial etiologies of dizziness provides a conceptual basis for diagnosis and determining best course of treatment -A valuable appendix with sample questions for taking a thorough patient history aids the assessment of the severity of symptoms Vertigo and Disequilibrium: A Practical Guide to Diagnosis and Management is an essential resource for all otolaryngologists, neurologists, vestibular therapists, residents, and physicians treating patients with dizziness. This is a must-read for practitioners, especially those caring for elderly patients with dizziness.
Diagnosing and Managing Disorders of Hearing, Balance and the Facial Nerve

Since the sequencing of the human genome, major developments in our understanding of otology and neurotology have taken place; diagnostic measures have been transformed, and the underlying genetics of a variety of diseases affecting the ear have already been unraveled. Otorhinolaryngologists and head and neck surgeons will find this monograph an invaluable resource for the management of neurotological problems in their patients. The contributors are internationally renowned, and many of them are affiliated with Johns Hopkins University, a leading center for neurotology and otology. The text thus emphasizes state-of-the-art developments in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of hearing, balance and the facial nerve. Scientific and clinical pathophysiology is reflected throughout. This volume is a key reference guide for medical students, general practitioners, and aspiring otolaryngologists and otologists.
