Neuro-Otology: a volume in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series, provides a comprehensive translational reference on the disorders of the peripheral and central vestibular system. The volume is aimed at serving clinical neurologists who wish to know the most current established information related to dizziness and disequilibrium from a clinical, yet scholarly, perspective. This handbook sets the new standard for comprehensive multi-authored textbooks in the field of neuro-otology. The volume is divided into three sections, including basic aspects, diagnostic and therapeutic management, and neuro-otologic disorders. Internationally acclaimed chapter authors represent a broad spectrum of areas of expertise, chosen for their ability to write clearly and concisely with an eye toward a clinical audience. The Basic Aspects section is brief and covers the material in sufficient depth necessary for understanding later translational and clinical material. The Diagnostic and Therapeutic Management section covers all of the essential topics in the evaluation and treatment of patients with dizziness and disequilibrium. The section on Neuro-otologic Disorders is the largest portion of the volume and addresses every major diagnostic category in the field. Synthesizes widely dispersed information on the anatomy and physiology of neuro-otologic conditions into one comprehensive resource Features input from renowned international authors in basic science, otology, and neuroscience Presents the latest assessment of the techniques needed to diagnose and treat patients with dizziness, vertigo, and imbalance Provides the reader with an updated, in-depth review of the clinically relevant science and the clinical approach to those disorders of the peripheral and central vestibular system
This textbook provides a practical and systematic approach to the patient with balance disorders. It emphasizes an understanding of how the overall balance system functions to aid in effective evaluation and treatment and provides reliable tools for guiding therapy even when the exact diagnosis may be elusive. It covers a range of topics which include: a practical presentation of the basics of vestibular system function, the use of clinical information in diagnosis and treatment planning, rehabilitation of the dizzy patient and surgical patient selection.TEXTBOOK

ENT Made Easy is the ideal clinical text for GPs, ENT trainees, medical students and nurse practitioners looking to manage common ENT conditions. Diseases of the ears, nose and throat are amongst the most common presentations in primary care, and many patients are referred to ENT clinics in secondary care for further medical and surgical management. To help reduce these referrals this book guides readers through the basic anatomy and pathophysiology and then, for each presentation, provides: an introduction which describes possible causes and the history required a section on diagnosis, including which examinations and investigations to consider management options, complications to look out for, and when to refer. This book offers practical guidance and so helps to fill the gap between ENT theory and the actual work experience. In addition to covering the common presentations, from allergic rhinitis to vertigo, via dysphagia and halitosis, the book also provides a description of the main investigations and covers the particular problems occurring in paediatric cases.
