Описание: This volume covers the most important aspects of cerebral blood flow (CBF) from bench to bedside. It first defines the basic physiology of CBF, those qualities that make it unique or are shared with other organs and their clinical implications. There follows a section on CBF pathophysiology that explores many of the known and proposed mechanisms of cerebral ischemia in stroke and trauma states. The third section describes the numerous and powerful means available to measure blood flow, tissue function and overall perfusion. These are essential measures if one is to assess the effectiveness of therapies aimed at preventing or reversing cerebral ischemia. The final section describes the interesting and often successful recent clinical trials aimed at preventing or reversing cerebral ischemia. This collection of multicenter trial data and their implications in one volume is unique in this field. This book addresses all the major aspects of CBF from basic issues to clinical practice.

Описание: A synthesis of current concepts about the evaluation, treatment, and future directions in MS. On the evaluation side, the authors review the use of MRI, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, functional MRI, and three-dimensional MRI, and consider the rapidly developing body of pathologic information they have yielded. On the treatment side, the focus is on recently approved medications (Novantrone), new indications for medications (CHAMPS Trial), medications in development (Oral Interferon Tau, Oral Copaxone, and Oral Cellcept), immunosuppressive therapy for both progressive disease and symptomatic therapy; the current medications for treating relapsing-remitting MS (Avonex, Betaseron, and Copaxone) are also discussed. For future directions, the authors present the current best thinking, as well as the latest discoveries in immunology relating to MS, including groundbreaking B-cell research and its applications to specific immunotherapies, and the use of immune markers for tracking the disease.

Описание: Authoritative clinicians present up-to-date, concise, and practical advice on the diagnosis and treatment of the most common sleep disorders encountered in general practice. They not only review such problems as obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, circadian rhythm disorders, and narcolepsy, but they also discuss such important topics as pediatric sleep disorders, the pharmacology of sleep medicines, diagnostic testing and technology, and the use of bright light therapy in sleep disorders and depression. Throughout, the emphasis is on obtaining an appropriate patient history and carefully analyzing the available diagnostic and treatment strategies to determine appropriate therapeutic regimens.
Описание: Prominent neurologists and movement disorders experts from around the world logically and systematically review the major movement disorder emergencies, instructing the reader on how optimally to recognize and manage these problems. The authors comprehensively cover a broad range of disorders, including acute dystonic reactions, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, startle syndromes, and tic emergencies, and stress the importance of certain obvious diagnoses such as Wilson's disease, dopa-responsive dystonia, and Whipple's disease, in which delayed diagnosis in less emergent situations can lead to slowly evolving and often irreversible neurologic damage with tragic consequences. Patient vignettes at the beginning of each chapter focus the reader's attention and highlight the urgency of the problem. Since astute clinical diagnosis of many movement disorders is still largely dependent on visual pattern recognition in the clinic, an accompanying CD-ROM illustrates virtually all of the movement disorders described in the text.
