Marsden's Book of Movement Disorders

C. David Marsden, Ivan Donaldson
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 1512

This book represents the final work of the late Professor C. David Marsden, who was the most influential figure in the field of movement disorders, in terms of his contributions to both research and clinical practice, in the modern era. It was conceived and written by David Marsden and his colleague at the Institute of Neurology, Prof. Ivan Donaldson. It was their intention that this would be the most comprehensive book on movement disorders and also that it would serve as the 'clinical Bible' for the management of these conditions. It provides a masterly survey of the entire topic, which has been made possible only by vast laboratory and bedside experience. Marsden's Book of Movement Disorders covers the full breadth of movement disorders, from the underlying anatomy and understanding of basal ganglia function to the diagnosis and management of specific movement disorders, including the more common conditions such as Parkinson's Disease through to rare, and very rare conditions such as Niemann-Pick disease. Chapters follow a structured format with historical overviews, definitions, clinical features, differential diagnosis, investigations and treatment covered in a structured way. It is extensively illustrated with many original photographs and diagrams of historical significance. Among these illustrations are still images of some original film clips of some of Dr. Marsden's patients published here for the first time. Comprehensively referenced and updated by experts from the Institute of Neurology at Queen Square, this book is a valuable reference for, not just movement disorder specialists and researchers, but also for clinicians who care for patients with movement disorders.

Parkinson's Disease Treatment Guide for Physicians

J. Eric Ahlskog

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 400

Roughly 1.9 million people are afflicted with Parkinson's disease and, according to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, that number is on the rise! Parkinson's Disease Treatment Guide for Physicians will comprehensively cover Parkinson's disease (PD), including diagnosis, testing, prognosis, and possible causes. Its primary focus will be on treatment, specifying appropriate drugs, doses, and common side effects. It will address not only the treatment of motor problems (tremor, gait, etc.), but everything else that routinely arises in a PD practice, including osteoporosis prevention, blood pressure, sexual, bowel, or bladder dysfunction, dementia, depression, common skin rashes, and more. This book will mirror Dr. Ahlskog's earlier book, The Parkinson's Treatment Book: Partnering with Your Doctor to Get the Most from Your Medications (2005). Each chapter in the current book will follow the same outline and cover nearly the same material as in each chapter of the earlier patient book, but it will be more succint and direct, with many teaching points summarized wtih bullet points or in small tables. In effect, the clinician and patient can both be reading, or have read, the same material.

Parkinsons Disease and Other Movement Disorders

Kailash P. Bhatia, Mark Edwards
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 336

Movement Disorders are a group of neurological conditions that are characterised by problems with movement - either unwanted movements, such as tremors, jerks or twitches, or slowness and poverty of movement. Parkinson's disease is the most common of these conditions, and it affects approximately 1% of the population. Its treatment is complex, but effective, and there have been many recent exciting developments in the field. Other movement disorders are less common and extremely diverse, so it is difficult for practitioners to become proficient in diagnosing and treating them all. This book will help neurologists and other clinicians in the recognition and treatment of this important group of disorders. Written in a concise, easy-to-use handbook format, it should appeal to a multidisciplinary audience. The text is accompanied by a DVD with video clips illustrating the different movement disorders.
