Myelopathy, Radiculopathy, and Peripheral Entrapment Syndromes

David H. Durrant, Jerome M. True

Price: $79.00




This highly acclaimed neurology textbook represents one of the most important resources in neurology and spinecare. The textbook is richly illustrated and easy to use. It presents comprehensive and up-to-date information about the etiology and clinical presentation of disorders involving the spinal cord, spinal nerve roots, and peripheral nerves. The treatise includes differential diagnostic considerations and relevant diagnostic approaches.

Myelopathy, Radiculopathy, and Peripheral Entrapment Syndromes contains over 400 concise graphics, illustrations, and tables to simplify the learning process and to serve as quick references for clinical practice. Of the many texts on clinical neurology, few discuss the musculoskeletal and orthopedic complications associated with neurological compromise. This book offers an unprecedented perspective on this topic, a necessity for the emerging fields of neurorehabiliation and neuromuscular rehabilitation.

The scope and organization of this textbook makes it a valuable resource for healthcare providers at all stages of training and clinical practice. It is an essential resource for spine specialists of all disciplines.

The textbook features:
  • methods of clinical and advanced neurological assessment
  • localization of neurological diagnosis by signs and symptoms
  • measures of therapeutic outcome
  • neuroimaging of relevant pathology
  • expanded differential diagnostic considerations
  • highly referenced explanatory text
  • integration of diagnostic methods
  • temporal patterns of disease progression
  • classification of neurological disease
  • mechanisms and complications of neurological injury
  • time frames of neurological recovery
  • measures of injury-induced disability
  • illustrated neurological pathways
  • diagnostic imaging and clinical correlation
The textbook is used by:
  • by continuing education neurology training programs as a reference for the development of Specialty and Board Examination questions.
  • the American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) in continuing education courses eligible for advanced credentialing.
  • colleges and universities as a primary and supplementary neurology textbook.
Each section of the book includes:
  • Introduction
  • Relevant anatomy
  • Pathophysiology and mechanisms of tissue compromise
  • Clinical signs and symptoms
  • Electrodiagnostic features
  • Diagnostic imaging characteristics of neuropathology
  • Syndromes specific to the level of neurological compromise
