Lange Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy: A Localization-Based Approach 1st Edition

An engagingly written text that bridges the gap between neuroanatomy and clinical neurology
One of the best modern outlooks on the pragmatic practice of neurology … far superior to existing books of its size and scope because of the thoughtfulness with which the knowledge about diseases and neurological conditions has been assembled … addressing almost every major point that is encountered on the wards and in the clinic.
From the Foreword by Allan H. Ropper, MD, Executive Vice Chair of Neurology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital; and Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School

Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy delivers a clear, logical discussion of the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease. Written in a clear, concise style, this unique text offers a concise overview of fundamental neuroanatomy and the clinical localization principles necessary to diagnose and treat patients with neurologic diseases. Unlike other neurology textbooks that either focus on neuroanatomy or clinical neurology, Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy integrates the two in manner which simulates the way neurologists learn, teach, and think.

Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy is divided into two main sections. In Part 1, clinically relevant neuroanatomy is presented in clinical context in order to provide a framework for neurologic localization and differential diagnosis. The diseases mentioned in localization-based discussions of differential diagnosis in Part 1 are then discussed in clinical detail with respect to their diagnosis and management in Part 2.  Part 1 can therefore be consulted for a neuroanatomical localization-based approach to symptom evaluation, and Part 2 for the clinical features, diagnosis, and management of neurologic diseases.

FEATURES
• A clear, concise approach to explaining the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease
• Numerous full-color illustrations and high resolution MRI and CT scans
• Explanatory tables outline the clinical features, characteristics, and differential diagnosis of neurologic diseases and disorders

Neurocritical Care (What Do I Do Now) 2nd Edition

Patients in the neurointensive care unit pose many clinical challenges for the attending physician. Even experienced clinicians occasionally arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking becomes stymied. In daily practice, neurocritical care pertains to managing deteriorating patients, treatment of complications but also end-of-life care assisting families with difficult decisions. Part of the “What Do I Do Now?” series, Neurocritical Care provides insight into interventions in acute neurologic disorders. Using a case-based approach, this volume emphasizes how to handle comparatively common clinical problems emergently. New to this edition are cases on monitoring and prognostication. All cases have been carefully revised, and new information, references, and practical tables have been added. Neurocritical Care is both an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases and a self-assessment tool that tests the reader’s ability to answer the question, “What do I do now?”

Drug Delivery to the Brain: Physiological Concepts, Methodologies and Approaches (AAPS Advances in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Series)

The development of new CNS drugs is notoriously difficult. Drugs must reach CNS target sites for action and these sites are protected by a number of barriers, the most important being the blood –brain barrier (BBB). Many factors are therefore critical to consider for CNS drug delivery, e.g. active/passive transport across the BBB, intra-brain distribution, and central/systemic pharmacokinetics, to name a few. Neurological disease and trauma conditions add further complexity because CNS barriers, drug distribution and pharmacokinetics are dynamic and often changed by disease/trauma. Knowledge of all these factors and their interplay in different conditions is of utmost importance for proper CNS drug development and disease treatment. In recent years much information has become available for a better understanding of the many factors important for CNS drug delivery and how they interact to affect drug action. This book describes small and large drug delivery to the brain with an emphasis on the physiology of the BBB and the principles and concepts for drug delivery across the BBB and distribution within the brain. It contains methods descriptions for studying drug delivery, routes and approaches of administering drugs into the brain, the influence of disease, and drug industry perspectives. Therewith, it contributes to an in-depth understanding of the interplay between brain (patho)-physiology and drug characteristics. Furthermore, the content is designed to be both cutting-edge and educational, so that the book can be used in high-level training of academic and industry scientists with full references to original publications.
