EJPN, 01-JAN-04 — “This is a thought provoking book by three experts in the field that will certainly help the practitioner to diagnose and manage epilepsy in children. It should be available close at hand and dipped into often.”–EJPN

Epilepsy & Behavior, Volume 5, Issue 611 — “For this third edition, the editorship has been boosted by two prominent pediatric neurologists and epileptologists. The book covers major types of epileptic seizures in childhood and corresponding epileptic syndromes; the various manifestations of epilepsy relative to age, cause, duration, and precipitation of seizures, and, naturally, aspects on diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of convulsive disorders in children. This book is extremely comprehensive and encompasses just about every piece of current knowledge strewn about in the vast contemporary literature on childhood epilepsy. It is not literature to browse through, but a gold mine in which to dig and frequently return. The combination of encyclopedic knowledge and clinical bedside approach is attractive. This book, without doubt, will be on the shelves of any professional active in the field of pediatric epilepsy. No doubt.”–Epilepsy & Behavior

Epileptic Disorders, Volume 6, Issue 4 — “The newly updated version of the original text remains undisputedly the single most authoritative treatise on pediatric epilepsy in the literature. The text is logically organized into 25 chapters. All of the chapters have been rewritten and updated. Despite the additional two authors, the text remains refreshingly consistent in its style, making for an easier read and facilitating access to information. Chapter subheadings are logically organized around important core issues in pediatric epilepsy. Each chapter ends with a helpful summary section that crystallizes the salient clinical issues. The text is replete with clinical “pearls” that can be applied directly at the bedside and clinic. The descriptions of seizure semiologies and syndrome features are particularly satisfying and reflect the vast combined clinical experience of the authors. It is worth owning the book for these descriptions alone as they capture the intricate and subtle differences among various seizure types and syndrome presentations. It will undoubtedly become an important resource for pediatric neurologists and epileptologists and is wholeheartedly recommended reading for allied pediatric disciplines involved in the care of pediatric seizure patients.”–Epileptic Disorders

About the Author

Cerebral Angiography: Normal Anatomy and Vascular Pathology

Cerebral Angiography is a comprehensive and well-illustrated guide to the diagnostic use of cerebral angiography. The first part of the book depicts in detail the normal appearance of the cerebral vessels on angiographic studies. Sound knowledge of this normal vascular anatomy and clinical function is vital for correct interpretation of the clinical significance of the pathological processes addressed in the second part of the book. The latter include vascular abnormalities, including angiomas, fistulas, and aneurysms; atherosclerotic and non-atherosclerotic stenosis and occlusion of the cerebral vessels; and venous thrombosis. In each case, both typical and atypical appearances are presented. While the emphasis throughout is on the diagnostic value of cerebral angiography, a number of examples of endovascular treatment are also included to highlight the evolving possibilities of therapy and the role of cerebral angiography in treatment selection.

Pattern Recognition Neuroradiology 1st Edition

Faced with a single neuroradiological image of an unknown patient, how confident would you be to make a differential diagnosis? Despite advanced imaging techniques, a confident diagnosis also requires knowledge of the patient’s age, clinical data and the lesion location. Pattern Recognition Neuroradiology provides the tools you will need to arrive at the correct diagnosis or a reasonable differential diagnosis. This user-friendly book includes basic information often omitted from other texts: a practical method of image analysis, sample dictation templates and didactic information regarding lesions/diseases in a concise outline form. Image galleries show more than 700 high quality representative examples of the diseases discussed. Whether you are a trainee encountering some of these conditions for the first time or a resident trying to develop a reliable system of image analysis, Pattern Recognition Neuroradiology is an invaluable diagnostic resource.



Developmental Cognitive Neuropsychology (Brain, Behaviour and Cognition) 1st Edition

How independent are different cognitive skills during development? Is the modularity seen in the studies of adult neuropsychology disorders mirrored by modularity in development? Are developmental neuropsychological disorders explicable against cognitive models? What restrictions are there to developmental plasticity? How many routes are there to competence? Is there a single developmental pathway? What do disorders of cognitive development tell us about normal developmental processes? These are some of the questions addressed by this text.
In certain cognitive domains, such as the analysis of reading and spelling disorders, the field is well developed, with extensive studies of the development of dyslexias and dysgraphias. In other areas, such as the analysis of perceptual spatial disorders, pertinant studies are beginning, as in the analysis of developmental face recognition disorders, and the exploration of spatial disorders of Williams’ syndrome. In these areas, interesting routes for future inquiry are also evident. The text of this book is organized around seven key cognitive areas, within which the developmental disorders are addressed in turn: language, memory, perception, reading, spelling, arithmetic and executive skills. The first three of this list may be considered the core areas of cognition; the second three involve specific cultural transmission in their acquisition; and the third, concerns higher order processes. The major emphasis of the text is upon developmental rather than acquired disorders. Throughout, case studies are used to convey an impression of the cases themselves, and to illustrate how dissociations in performance are displayed.

Translational Neurosonology (Frontiers of Neurology and Neuroscience, Vol. 36) 1st Edition

Diagnostic ultrasound has become an elementary tool for evaluating cerebrovascular diseases and plays a prominent role in routine clinical practice. Many publications attempt to cover the continuous progress of its diagnostic and even therapeutic applications. However, the impact ultrasound has made in recent years in the fields of animal studies and human research is less well known. This publication provides an overview on exciting current attempts in neurological diseases, ranging from experimental approaches to established imaging modes ready to be incorporated into the routine of daily practice. The first part of the book concentrates on basic principles of neurosonology and focuses on contrast imaging, specific ultrasound contrast agents and safety aspects. The following chapters deal with different vascular ultrasound applications, allowing an optimized characterization of atherosclerotic disease and monitoring of cerebral autoregulation. In addition, the role of parenchymal ultrasound imaging in cerebrovascular diseases and movement disorders is illustrated. The final chapters look at promising new therapeutic approaches implementing ultrasound although they are still no more than experimental. The book can be highly recommended to clinical neurologists with good knowledge in clinical ultrasound who wish to gain a compact and updated insight into the plethora of capabilities of neurosonology in the future.
