- Seminal text on electrodiagnosis, addressing the advances in neuromuscular medicine, including anterior horn cell disorders, peripheral neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders and myopathies
- The book takes a case-based learning approach to fill the gap between theory and practice
- Divided into two major parts; the first an introduction to clinical electromyography and the second is separated into 27 case studies based on disorder
Continuing the unique case-based learning approach to fill the gap between theory and practice, the third edition of Electromyography in Clinical Practice addresses the advances in neuromuscular medicine, including anterior horn cell disorders, peripheral neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, and myopathies. It is the perfect resource for neurologists, physiatrists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, physical therapists, and pain management specialists, neuromuscular and clinical neurophysiology fellows, as well as the resident, trainee, and medical student interested in the diagnosis and management of the most common disorders encountered in the EMG lab.
The book is divided into two major parts; the first an introduction to clinical electromyography and the second is separated into 27 case studies. The cases focus on localized disorders in the lower and upper extremities and end with a selection of generalized disorders. Each case begins with a detailed, tabulated, EMG study, followed by several questions, and a detailed analysis of the study, then takes into account patient history, the physical examination, EMG readings, treatment, and patient follow-up to sharpen the clinicians problem-solving skills.
