Synopsis:

Revised Third Edition of the practical yet authoritative guide to diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders. Written in an expanded outline format, this book is packed with flow charts, algorithms, and tables to provide quick access to point-of-care information. Easy-to-read and thoroughly up-to-date, this new edition includes the latest diagnostic and treatment protocols, recent FDA-approved drugs, and non-pharmacological therapies. With coverage of all major disease categories, this essential handbook belongs in the pocket of any clinician who suspects a movement disorder in a patient.

The book is organized by medical, behavioral, surgical, and non-pharmacological treatment approaches to movement disorders. Opening chapters walk the practitioner through clinical presentation, diagnosis, and work-up of common and uncommon disorders, sleep-related movement disorders, eye and vestibular function, including pediatric issues. Behavioral and psychiatric complications for Parkinson disease, Huntington disease, and Tourette syndrome follow, with a fully reconfigured chapter on functional movement disorders, incorporating changes in classification and treatment approach. Expanded chapters on surgical devices and indications address deep brain stimulation surgery; lesioning, shunts, and pumps; post-operative care; and neuropsychological, social, and ethical issues. The final section on non-pharmacological approaches covers physical and occupational therapy, speech and swallowing therapy, nutrition, and palliative care.
