Evaluation and Treatment of Myopathies Book Description :

This new edition of Evaluation and Treatment of Myopathies is written for the clinician who sees patients with muscle disease, or the patient with complaints of pain or weakness of muscle. Like the original, this new edition is divided in to 3 primary sections: Approach to the Patient with Muscle Disease, Specific Myopathies, and General Strategies of Clinical Management, each section providing practical guidance to eliciting key histories and demonstrate findings upon examination. This new edition also provides guidance on the next steps in diagnoses as well as the latest information on pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment, in an integrated manner, so as to give trainees, practicing clinicians and others who see neuromuscular disease perspective on how to evaluate and care for patients. New and revised tables, figures, and references are selected and organized to present information of clinical importance to provide the most up-to-date resource on the myopathies.

Hereditary myopathies Book Description :

The majority of patients with myopathies have an inherited disease. Symptoms alone are not usually enough to diagnose myopathy, but they warrant further neurological examinations that are performed in larger hospitals and in special outpatient clinics for neuromuscular disorders.

Muscle Aging Inclusion Body Myositis and Myopathies Book Description :

Muscle weakness with ageing is almost inevitable, generally beginning to manifest beyond the age of 40, and is usually unstoppable. It can lead to reduced mobility, increased risk of falling, injury, and even death. But ?you?re just getting old? is not a sufficient diagnosis. Specific causes of neuromuscular symptoms may explain progressive muscle weakness, and should be investigated for potential treatment. Muscle Ageing, Inclusion-Body Myositis and Myopathies explores the clinical and pathological expression of muscle weakness in aging persons. Case studies demonstrate how physicians can more accurately diagnose weakening elderly patients and make better management decisions. It also explores sporadic inclusion-body myositis and hereditary inclusion-body myopathies. The former, the most common progressive muscle disease in the over 50s, is frequently under-diagnosed and, with the increasing population of aged individuals, is presenting a greater challenge. This disease of muscle has pathological similarities with the well-known Alzheimer and Parkinson brain diseases. Edited and written by a leading international cast of authors, Muscle Ageing, Inclusion-Body Myositis and Myopathies provides a state-of-the-art guide to ageing-associated neuromuscular disorders. It should be in the hands of all those involved in the care of aging and muscle-weakened patients.

Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathies Book Description :

The term "myositis" covers a variety of disorders often designated "idiopathic inflammatory myopathies". Although they are rather rare compared to other rheumatic diseases, they often cause severe disability and not infrequently increased mortality. The additional involvement of important internal organs such as the heart and lungs, is not uncommon. Thus, there is a great need for a better understanding of the etiopathogenesis of myositis, which may lead to improved treatment and care for these patients. Major advances regarding research and medical treatment have been made during recent years. Of particular importance is the discovery of the Myositis specific autoantibodies, linking immunological and pathological profiles to distinct clinical disease entities. A wide range of aspects of myopathies is covered in the book presented by highly qualified authors, all internationally known for their expertice on inflammatory muscle diseases. The book covers diagnostic, pathological, immunological and therapeutic aspects of myositis.
