Building on the success of its award-winning predecessor, Neurological Therapeutics: Principles and Practice, Second Edition is a fully-updated three-volume text, available both as a hardback and in web-formats, to be used as important reference for treatment decisions in offices of neurological practice, clinics and hospitals. Providing a reference that is both authoritative and accessible for daily use, key features of this evidence-based, highly acclaimed work include: * more than 275 major topics covering the vast patient mix primarily treated by adult and pediatric neurologists * the most current definitive medical citations * section editors who are all internationally recognized leaders in their fields * new chapters addressing the important issues of stem cell therapy, pharmacogenomics, palliative care, the management of the organ donor, metabolic myelopathy, superficial siderosis and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder * focus on the issues underlying treatment decisions not only for the most readily treated disorders but also for conditions with few existing, definitive therapeutic options over 600 comprehensive summary tables and informative figures, with the most recent supporting recommendations to guide treatment decisions for effective and efficient patient management in the busy clinic setting. A highly important resource, this cutting-edge second edition continues to address the need for a comprehensive textbook focused primarily on therapeutics, and will help busy students, clinicians and clinician-scientists in understanding the current status of neurological therapeutics in planning the care of their patients.
