Electromyography in Clinical Practice,
Edition 2 A Case Study Approach
By Bashar Katirji, MD

Publication Date: 02 Aug 2007
Description
The only case-based guide to electromyography—back in a fully revised and updated New Edition! This practical resource examines how to approach, diagnose, and manage the most commonly encoun-tered disorders in the EMG laboratory. Based on actual cases, it correlates patient history, physical exam, EMG findings, relevant anatomy, treatment, and follow-up to help readers sharpen their clinical problem-solving skills. New cases have been added, and every case includes the latest advances in knowledge and technique.

Key Features

  • Features study questions, answers, and clinical discussions of how experts manage cases to help readers work through the problems presented.
  • Summarizes the results of nerve conduction studies and EMG data with standardized tables.
  • Includes more than 200 relevant imaging studies and anatomic figures.
  • Makes information easy to find with a uniform chapter organization.
  • Offers a consistent approach to electromyography based on Dr. Katirji's broad knowledge and clinical experience.

New Features

  • 7 new case studies, including Hereditary Neuropathy with Liability to Pressure Palsy, Ischemic Monomelic Neuropathy, and Myotonic Dystrophy.
  • Three new chapters on Nerve Conduction Studies, Needle EMG Examination, and Specialized Procedures.
  • Many new and revised figures that clarify complex information.
