Atlas of Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyography Excerpt :

Beautifully and lavishly illustrated, Atlas of Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyography demystifies the major conditions affecting peripheral nerves and provides electrodiagnostic strategies for confirming suspected lesions of the peripheral nervous system. Building on the success of the landmark Atlas of Electromyography, this new text is divided into sections based on the major peripheral nerves. It contains detailed illustrations of each nerve along with a discussion of its anatomy, followed by a thorough outline of the clinical conditions and entrapment syndromes that affect the nerve, including a list of the etiologies, clinical features, and electrodiagnostic strategies used for each syndrome. Routine and special motor and sensory nerve conduction studies are shown in an anatomical illustration. In addition, each muscle supplied by the peripheral nerve is illustrated showing the root, plexus, and peripheral nerve supply to the muscle and is accompanied by a corresponding human photograph. Written text provides information about the nerve conduction studies, muscle origin, tendon insertion, voluntary activation maneuver, and the site of optimum needle insertion, which is identified in the figures by a black dot or a needle electrode. Atlas of Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyography is the perfect anatomical guide for neurologists, specialists in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and electrodiagnostic medicine consultants, while also providing support for individuals in residency training programs, critical care medicine, neurological surgery, and family practice.

Electrodiagnosis in New Frontiers of Clinical Research Excerpt :

Utilization of electrodiagnosis; namely electromyography (EMG), nerve conduction studies, late responses, repetitive nerve stimulation techniques, quantitative EMG and evoked potentials, has long been discussed in many text books as basic principles. However the usage of electroneuromyography is rather new in some aspects when compared with tasks of daily practise. This book, we believe, will cover and enlighten those aspects where electrodiagnosis has begun to play important roles nowadays.

Understanding EMG Excerpt :

Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS) are electrodiagnostic tests used for identifying neuromuscular diseases and for assessing low-back pain and disorders of motor control. Many doctors refer their patients to the clinical neurophysiology department for electrodiagnostic tests and are then faced with interpreting the results. This book teaches the principles of NCS and EMG, promotes better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of thesetechniques, and thereby improves their use. Understanding EMG is different from existing books in this field since it is written for a large group of referring doctors and other healthcare professionals who need to know the basic principles of NCS and EMG, including when to request and how tointerpret the tests, but who do not necessarily need to know how to perform them.

Electromyography in Clinical Practice Excerpt :

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.

Each case includes a summary of important points or highlights of the study. Case studies are arranged either by complaint or by diagnosis so that you can successfully manage your patients with or without an initial diagnosis. Comprehensive coverage of EMGs and nerve conduction studies and other diagnostic tests, including muscle and nerve biopsies and genetic testing, helps you accurately diagnose nerve, muscle, and neuromuscular transmission disorders. Detailed discussions of treatment plans and commonly used drugs enhance your management of autoimmune disorders, painful neuropathy, dysautonomia, and other neuromuscular disorders. A reader-friendly format takes you step by step through the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, from the basic anatomy and physiology of the nerve and muscle through to clinical evaluation, diagnostic testing, and therapy. More than 350 high-quality illustrations, including full-color patient photographs, biopsies, and EMG tracings, make complex concepts easier to understand and apply.
