This title in the popular Pearls Series focuses on electrodiagnostic studies of neuromuscular diseases. EMGs and their interpretation are a major component of the specialty of physical medicine and rehab physicians, and they are important to neurologists and electromyographers. For each case, patient information is presented, the EMG findings are discussed, and the reader is asked to make a diagnosis based on these findings. The next page reveals the diagnosis, discussed the case and the medical condition in question, and then presents 3-4 pearls of practice distilled from the case. Pearls books feature real patient cases, providing information not found in standard texts Each case follows the same format for clarity and ease of presentation Provides information about the specific patient as well overall information on each disorder discussed. The text is interactive as the reader is asked make a diagnosis based on the case information presented Illustrations are provided for most of the cases Three or four "pearls of practice" are distilled for each case.

Comprehensive, thoroughly updated, and expanded, Neuromuscular Disorders in Clinical Practice, Second Edition encompasses all disorders of the peripheral nervous system, covering all aspects of neuromuscular diseases from diagnosis to treatment. Mirroring the first book, this two-volume edition is divided into two parts. Part one discusses the approach to neuromuscular disorders, covering principles and basics, neuromuscular investigations, and assessment and treatment of neurological disorders. Part two then addresses the complete range of specific neuromuscular diseases: neuronopathies, peripheral neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, muscle ion channel disorders, myopathies, and miscellaneous neuromuscular disorders and syndromes. Neuromuscular Disorders in Clinical Practice, Second Edition is intended to serve as a comprehensive text for both novice and experienced practitioners. General neurologists as well as specialists in neuromuscular medicine and trainees in neuromuscular medicine, clinical neurophysiology and electromyography should find this book inclusive, comprehensive, practical and highly clinically focused. Additionally, specialists in physical medicine and rehabilitation, rheumatology, neurosurgery, and orthopedics will find the book of great value in their practice.
