Since publication of the first edition, Spasticity: Diagnosis and Management has been the defining reference and go-to source for physicians, therapists, and other healthcare providers who care for patients with spasticity. For this new updated edition, Dr. Brashear and a diverse team of specialists have come together to integrate new research, clinical trials, measurement tools, therapies, and other recent advances that reflect this evolving field. The book is organized into four sections, each of which covers a broad scope of material. The first is a general overview of spasticity and its effects on movement in patients. Other chapters cover epidemiology and ancillary findings commonly associated with spasticity. Part II details assessment tools and measurements, treatment goals, and how to aim for realistic outcomes. Part III outlines various treatment modalities, including heavily updated chapters on the use of botulinum toxin in the upper and lower extremities, guidance techniques for injections, intrathecal baclofen, neuromodulation, surgery, physical therapy, and more. The last section, which contains several new chapters, discusses evaluation of outcomes and management of patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and cancer, followed by chapters on spasticity management in long-term care facilities and economic considerations. This book remains the most comprehensive guide to diagnosis and management of spasticity in adults and children, and the revised second edition will continue to serve as an invaluable resource for professionals in any discipline who strive to provide quality care to spasticity patients. Key Features: Revised edition of the premier clinical reference on spasticity Incorporates the latest advances in assessment and treatment Contains six entirely new chapters highlighting key topics including Tardieu scale and other measurement tools, ultrasound guidance for botulinum toxin management, spasticity in special populations, emerging therapies, and economic impact More than 200 figures and 70 tables accompany the updated text

This practical guide for physicians and other health care professionals discusses the impact of fatigue on the individual with MS, the potential etiologies underlying MS-related fatigue, its work up and diagnosis, and pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic management strategies. Fatigue is perhaps the single most prevalent and disabling symptom of the multiple sclerosis, and limits patients' activity more than any other MS symptom. The identification of fatigue as a distinct clinical entity requires both art and science, and most of all, a willingness and ability to listen carefully to patients and their families. The physician's ability to obtain a comprehensive history requires a full understanding of the circumstances in which fatigue occurs (physical, cognitive, and psychosocial) and demands consideration of a large number of disorders, including anxiety, depression, excessive daytime sleepiness, pain, and spasticity, all of which may mimic or contribute to fatigue. While fatigue is almost exclusively a subjective experience, depending on the patient's ability to understand and report this symptom, there are effective methods for identifying the existence of fatigue, determining its severity, and distinguishing it from related or contributing disorders such as depression, pain, and sleep disorders. Readers will learn that fatigue need not be tolerated by the MS patient. Various therapies, support systems, and treatment of underlying affective disorders can all alleviate fatigue or reduce its impact, restoring the patient's energy levels and ability to participate in life. Virtually every MS patient with fatigue can benefit from intervention, and failing to treat the symptom of fatigue with the respect that it deserves is a serious detriment to patient care.

Neurologists and non-neurologists alike can no longer ignore diseases of the neuromuscular system. The old dogma that these disorders are both uncommon and untreatable has lost its validity. Recent technological advances have enabled us to study more precisely muscle and nerve anatomy, physiology and biochem istry. Because of this progress, we are now recognizing new neuromuscular di seases as well as diagnosing more subtle cases of myasthenia gravis, myotonia, and metabolic myopathies. Treatment of the neuromuscular diseases has also un dergone dramatic change based on new discoveries in the fields of immunology and pharmacology. No longer are myotonia, periodic paralysis, and malignant hyperthermia untreatable medical curiosities. No longer are cases of steroid-un responsive myositis given up as hopeless. Because of all these advances, non-sur gical physicians and especially neurologists must update their knowledge regard ing the neuromuscular disorders. This book, it is hoped, will help such clinicians in dealing with this task. Emphasis has been placed on the diagnosis and management of these disorders rather than on their pathophysiology. The more uncommon diseases and those of uncertain existence have been omitted purposely and left to the larger and more encyclopedic reference works. Chapter 1 discusses the clinical symptoms and signs of muscle disease and is designed to enable the reader to formulate a differential diagnosis on the basis of the patient's history and physical examination.
