Описание: Parkinson's Disease is increasingly understood as a spectral of several entities rather than a single disease. This book takes the premise that Parkinson's should be viewed as a syndrome with mutliple clinical phenotypes and histopathological features. The Editors review the clinical forms of Parkinson's before anlysing the available treatment options - which are still limited to symptomatic approaches. They they invite a stellar cast of international experts to present and discuss cases that exemplify the challenges of the many variants of Parkinson's. This important text rewrites the conventional view of Parkinson's in a straighforward manner for the practising and trainee neurologist.
Описание: This book gives the reader an up-to-date, clear and logical idea of what caring for parkinsonian patients entails - a challenge that clinicians will face for many years to come. It is split into three sections: Section 1: A compilation of the major

Описание: Providing discussions of all syndromes in which parkinsonism may be a feature, this reference refines nosologic conceptions of parkinsonism, elucidates its cause, and points the way toward future investigative strategies.;Detailing the progress made by clinical neurologists in understanding and managing movement disorders Parkinsonian Syndromes: examines multiple system atrophies, including striatonigral degeneration, olivopontocerebellar atrophy, and shy-drager syndrome; reviews symptomatic parkinsonisms due to structural or vascular alterations, drugs, toxins, and metabolic changes; covers hereditofamilial disorders with parkinsonism; encompasses neurodegenerative syndromes that can not be otherwise classified according to overlapping pathology, mode of inheritance, or etiology; describes several miscellaneous conditions such as hemiatrophy-hemiparkinsonism and basal ganglionic calcifications with parkinsonism; and explores parkinsonism as it relates to the aging process.;Written by over 30 renowned clinical investigators with special expertise in parkinsonisms, Parkinsonian Syndromes is a resource for neurologists, neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, physical therapists, general medicine clinicians, internists, and medical students in these disciplines.
Описание: A comprehensive review of what is known not only about the cause and treatment of atypical parksonian disorders, but also the issues that clinicians, researchers, patients, and caregivers face in dealing with them. The authors cover the basic science (history, epidemiology, genetics, pathology, nosology, computer modeling, and animal models), detailed clinical and laboratory assessments, and available diagnostic tools, including neuropsychiatric, neurologic, neuropsychologic, speech, electrophysiologic, and imaging evaluations. Current and future therapeutic approaches are also detailed, along with extensive discussions about future research directions. An accompanying DVD contains video segments that demonstrate how to examine patients with these disorders, how to differentiate them, and how to systematically use specific tests to better characterize them.
