Alan M. Rapoport, Antonio Gil-Nagel
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 480

This is a practical book on neurological therapy. It is aimed at giving concise and updated answers to busy practicing clinicians in the clinic, ward or emergency department. An evidence-based approach is used, but when there is no evidence or the data are inconclusive, an expert opinion is always being given in order to meet the expectations of the reader. All neurological conditions (common and less common) are discussed; each chapter has a similar format, and contains an initial brief introduction on the epidemiology and clinical features of each disease. The therapy is then discussed, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological, with wide use of Tables & Figures (flowcharts are also included in most of the chapters).

Neurologic Differential Diagnosis

A Case-based Approach

Alan B. Ettinger, Deborah M. Weisbrot

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 689

The increasing pressure upon clinicians to see more and more patients generates great concern as to how to offer a comprehensive and thorough diagnostic approach and yet maintain efficiency. Neurologic Differential Diagnosis is the answer. Unlike other texts which are divided into disease entities, this book uses a case study approach to focus on the patients' symptoms. Each chapter is dedicated to a specific presenting symptom or sign and includes a comprehensive, yet succinct table of clinical features to aid clarification of the broad list of diagnostic possibilities. This allows the clinician to quickly reference specific symptoms such as dizziness, mental status change or diplopia; or signs such as foot drop or psychotic behavior, and then immediately generate diagnostic possibilities. Written from the authors' extensive clinical experience, Neurologic Differential Diagnosis is an invaluable text for neurologists and psychiatrists at all stages of training.

The Neurologic Diagnosis

Jack N. Alpert

editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.

pagine: 314

Neurology has been viewed as the study of the source of humanity. Personality, intelligence, and mood alterations are manifestations of brain function or dysfunction. Neurology has also been bedeviled with an unjustified assumption that diseases of the nervous system are observable but untreatable. This misconception has been handed down through generations of medical students because of the dearth of sufficient instruction in the early years of medical school. Furthermore, it is commonly asserted that neurologic diseases are uniquely incurable. This fallacious argument, often promulgated by poorly educated physicians, conveniently forgets that most illnesses are incurable. Only when physicians have been in practice for a few years do they recognize the importance of neurologic symptoms and their inability to analyze them. The Neurologic Diagnosis: Practical Strategies for Medical Students and Residents is an introductory text that simplifies the often unwieldy method of making a neurologic diagnosis. Medical students are often intimidated by a deluge of data, extensive differential diagnoses, and have no organizational structure to follow. Diagnostic techniques of general medicine are not applicable. Neurology is a unique specialty since it requires the intermediary step of an anatomic diagnosis prior to proffering a differential diagnosis. Yet the required knowledge of neuroanatomy need not be profound for the student who will specialize in any field other than neurology and neurosurgery. This text is directed to medical students and residents who will all be regularly faced with numerous patients who have neurologic symptomatology. Typical one-month neurology rotations out of four years of medical school is clearly inadequate training to make a cogent neurologic diagnosis, especially since subsequent instruction is commonly provided by upper level residents who have the same background and numerous misconceptions. This is not a comprehensive text. The emphasis in this concise and practical title is on establishing a neuroanatomic diagnosis before formulating a differential diagnosis. In addition, treatment is seldom discussed since it is likely to change radically over time. Focused and succinct, The Neurologic Diagnosis: Practical Strategies for Medical Students and Residents is an invaluable resource for medical students and residents interested in the practice of neurological diagnosis.

L'esame neurologico. Quadri normali e patologici

Massimiliano Prencipe

editore: Piccin-Nuova Libraria

pagine: 490

Questo testo è indirizzato agli specializzandi di neurologia ed agli studenti di medicina particolarmente motivati allo studio della neurologia, ma anche a tutti i colleghi (medici di base, medici del Pronto Soccorso, specialisti in oculistica, otorinolaringoiatria, ortopedia, fisiatria e geriatria) che spesso visitano pazienti con possibili patologie neurologiche. La conoscenza di alcune manovre semeiotiche e della terminologia neurologica è sicuramente utile anche ai fisioterapisti perché molti dei loro pazienti sono affetti da patologie neurologiche. Il testo può sembrare di dimensioni più vaste di quelle attese, ma ciò dipende dalle moltissime figure che sono state inserite per rendere più semplice l'apprendimento e la memorizzazione delle differenti manovre semeiotiche.

Alla ricerca dei segni perduti. La diagnosi in neurologia

a cura di L. Lorusso, B. Lucci

editore: Carocci

pagine: 148

Nell'era del neuroimaging e della tecnologia medica è ancora importante conoscere la semeiotica neurologica? La storia dei segni che attraverso l'esame obiettivo del malato hanno consentito in passato e consentono ancora oggi di formulare una precisa diagnosi, non è solo la rievocazione di momenti esaltanti del percorso che ha permesso a valenti medici di legare il loro nome a manovre cliniche o a specifiche patologie. Comprendere il significato di ogni segno neurologico presuppone conoscenza anatomo-fisiologica, richiede capacità di sintesi clinica, predispone alla necessità di porsi sullo stesso piano del malato. Una gestione condivisa e più umana del rapporto medico-paziente è indispensabile al neurologo per esercitare la sua arte, quanto è essenziale al malato per comprendere il percorso verso la possibile guarigione. La progressiva scoperta dei segni descritta in questo volume, che ha determinato il passaggio da una neurologia empirica a una scientifica, è un'occasione per sollecitare il neuroscienziato clinico a usare le neurotecnologie non in sostituzione ma a conferma del corredo semeiotico della patologia.

A Dictionary of Neurological Signs

Andrew Larner

editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.

pagine: 397

The first two editions of the Dictionary of Neurological Signs were very well-received by readers and reviewers alike. Like those editions, this Third Edition, updated and expanded, can be almost as well described in terms of what the book is not, along with details about what it is. The Dictionary is not a handbook for treatment of neurological disorders. While many entries provide the latest treatment options, up-to-the-minute therapies are not discussed in bedside level detail. The Dictionary is not a board review book because it is not in Q&A format but could easily serve in that capacity since each entry is a fairly complete snapshot of a specific disorder or disease. The Dictionary is an alphabetical listing of commonly presenting neurological signs designed to guide the physician toward the correct clinical diagnosis. The Dictionary is focused, problem-based, concise and practical. The structured entries in this practical, clinical resource provide a thumbnail of a wide range of neurological signs. Each entry includes: * A definition of the sign * A brief account of the clinical technique required to elicit the sign * A description of the other signs which may accompany the index sign * An explanation of pathyophysiological and/or pharmacological background * Differential diagnosis * Brief treatment details Where known, these entries also include the neuroanatomical basis of the sign. The Dictionary of Neurological Signs, Third Edition, is an indispensable reference for all students, trainees, and clinicians who care for patients with neurological disorders.

Stupor e coma

a cura di L. Beretta

editore: Cortina Raffaello

pagine: 422

Delirium, stupor e coma sono condizioni cliniche con le quali devono frequentemente confrontarsi i medici di quasi tutte le specialità. Se diagnosticato e trattato in modo appropriato, il coma può spesso essere superato con successo; per contro, un ritardo nella diagnosi e nel trattamento può risultare fatale. Questo libro fornisce un approccio clinico aggiornato basato su rigorosi principi fisiopatologici per il medico chiamato a diagnosticare e trattare alterazioni dello stato di coscienza. La parte iniziale del volume è dedicata alla descrizione della fisiologia dello stato di coscienza e della fisiopatologia delle alterazioni della coscienza. La trattazione prosegue con la descrizione dell'approccio al paziente con alterazione dello stato di coscienza, riservando particolare attenzione all'esame medico, ma illustrando anche le più moderne tecniche diagnostiche per immagini. Le principali cause strutturali e metaboliche del coma sono analizzate in dettaglio. Il testo affronta, quindi, il trattamento d'urgenza sia medico sia chirurgico dei pazienti con specifiche alterazioni della coscienza e la relativa prognosi. Questa edizione è arricchita di nuovi capitoli dedicati all'approccio alla diagnosi di morte cerebrale e alla fisiologia clinica dello stato vegetativo e dello stato minimo di coscienza, come pure ai problemi etici legati alla cura di questi pazienti e al rapporto con i loro familiari.
