    Comment faire simple en neurologie clinique des premières années de la vie ? Les agressions périnatales surviennent sur un cerveau en voie de développement rapide. L'expression neurologique de ces pathologies est donc changeante, en particulier dans le domaine neuromoteur, au cours des deux premières années. Il faut donc des repères précis pour aider le clinicien à identifier les déviations possibles à chaque étape du développement. Pour ce faire, nous avions proposé dans une première édition publiée en 1998 un instrument unique applicable de la naissance à 6 ans, avec un répertoire technique, des instructions pour le codage, des réponses selon l'âge et une grille d'évaluation. Après 10 ans d'utilisation de cet instrument en recherche clinique, le contenu de cette deuxième édition s'est enrichi: - les résultats obtenus ont permis, à l'âge corrigé de 2 ans, d'identifier le spectrum des anomalies neuromotrices allant de la paralysie cérébrale incapacitante (IMOC) aux signes plus mineurs ; - cette catégorisation a montré des corrélations significatives avec la fonction cérébrale évaluée tant à l'âge préscolaire qu'à l'âge scolaire. Les anomalies neurologiques, même mineures, servent de fil conducteur pour affirmer la nature organique de certains troubles de l'apprentissage. Cet instrument de dépistage permet la mise en place anticipée de stratégies d'intervention. Il se montre également de plus en plus utile dans l'évaluation des pratiques périnatales.

    De nombreux ouvrages savants traitent des troubles spécifiques des apprentissages et des ' dys -', en particulier des troubles spécifiques du langage et des dyslexies. Au contraire les troubles non-verbaux, plus récemment mis à jour, sont beaucoup moins bien renseignés. Cet ouvrage traite de cas cliniques représentatifs et didactiques afin de rendre compte de la complexité du réel et des difficultés vécues par les patients. Ainsi, le lecteur fait face à des témoignages réalistes et pragmatiques, évoquant les obstacles, les erreurs fréquentes, les pièges dissimulés qui contribuent à égarer les professionnels. Chaque cas clinique est exploité pour guider le praticien. Les commentaires et les développements explicatifs donnent les pistes d'une réflexion ancrée dans la réalité et dans les méandres de situations habituelles (consultation ou suivi des patients). Tout au long de l'ouvrage, les auteurs interrogeront : la variété des dysgraphies, les difficultés de la phase diagnostique, les critères d'appréciation des troubles associés, les situations intriquées entre trouble neuropsychologique et psychodynamique, la stratégie thérapeutique et les choix qui guident les adaptations au cas par cas.

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of inflammatory brain diseases from a neuroradiological point of view. Such diseases may be either infectious (e.g., viral encephalitis and pyogenic brain abscess) or non-infectious (e.g., multiple sclerosis), and many of these entities are becoming increasingly important for differential diagnosis, particularly in immunocompromised persons. Neuroimaging contributes greatly to the differentiation of infectious and noninfectious brain diseases and to the distinction between brain inflammation and other, for instance neoplastic, diseases. In order to ensure a standardized approach throughout the book, each chapter is subdivided into three principal sections: epidemiology, clinical presentation and therapy; imaging; and differential diagnosis. A separate chapter addresses technical and methodological issues and imaging protocols. All of the authors are recognized experts in their fields, and numerous high-quality and informative illustrations are included. This book will be of great value not only to neuroradiologists but also to neurologists, neuropediatricians, and general radiologists.

Les processus du vieillissement normal et du vieillissement pathologiques sont analysés à travers l'hétérogénéité des manifestations symptomatiques, en particulier au niveau de la communication dans les maladies neurodégénératives, et à travers la perte progressive de son statut d'individu communicant du malade et de ses conséquences sur son comportement. Un outil d'évaluation des troubles de la communication des malades Alzheimer, basé sur une approche pragmatique et écologique est proposé. Ce dernier tient compte de la complexité des troubles et des influences multifactorielles qu'ils subissent, est présenté. A partir de cette évaluation, la thérapie écosystémique des troubles de la communication est proposée. Conduite par un thérapeute, celle-ci implique la participation de l'entourage familial et professionnel.

The book aids diagnosis in a field in which mistakes may lead to medico-legal problems, e.g. brain tumours presenting with blurred or double vision. The book leads the reader from the symptom, through a series of simple but safe flowcharts and check-lists, to the diagnosis or the tests which need to be ordered. The first chapter presents 20 'golden rules' to keep you and your patients out of trouble. A revised text with some new illustrations brings this highly-praised book up to date. New online videos demonstrate abnormal eye movements, eyelid problems and pupil abnormalities.

    How does the brain regulate sexual behavior, or control our body weight? How do we cope with stress? Addressing these questions and many more besides, this thoroughly revised new edition reflects the significant advances that have been made in the study of neuroendocrinology over the last twenty years. The text examines the importance of the hypothalamus in regulating hormone secretion from the endocrine glands, describing novel sites of hormone release including bone, heart, skeletal muscle and liver. The role of steroid hormone, neurotransmitter and peptide receptors, and the molecular responses of target tissues, is integrated into the discussion of the neuroendocrine brain, especially through changes in gene expression. Particular attention is attached to neuropeptides, including their profound influence on behavior. Complete with new full-color figures throughout, along with review and essay questions for each chapter, this is an ideal resource for undergraduate and graduate students of neuroscience, psychology, biology and physiology.

    Le terme périnatal réunit les derniers mois de la grossesse, la naissance et les premières semaines de la vie, période au cours de laquelle l'hypoxie-ischémie représente une menace pour le cerveau en voie de développement. Dans les formes sévères, l'encéphalopathie néonatale est évidente et les conséquences très défavorables ; dans les formes modérées et mineures du spectrum, beaucoup plus fréquentes, les séquelles éventuelles devront être cherchées systématiquement afin d'offrir à ces enfants les ressources de l'intervention précoce. Ce livre est composé de cinq parties. Les deux premières proposent une méthode clinique pour un examen de dépistage, fondée sur des bases anatomiques et physiologiques. Les pathologies, si particulières à cette période, sont décrites dans la troisième partie : pathologie hypoxique-ischémique, pathologie hémorragique mais aussi celles de nature génétique, infectieuse, toxique... Les séquelles cérébrales et la prise en charge font l'objet des deux dernières parties, avec la description du spectrum d'anomalies neuromotrices à deux ans, de la paralysie cérébrale handicapante jusqu'aux formes les plus mineures. La prise en charge est centrée sur la famille, avec pour préoccupation constante d'améliorer le devenir à l'âge scolaire et jusqu'à l'âge adulte.

    A wonderfully readable, concise, but by no means superficial book that fits well in the current pedagogic environment.”

    From the Foreword by Allan H. Ropper, MD

    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 and disorders. 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

    Risk Factors for Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke address the relationship of a wide variety of vascular risk factors in the spectrum of cerebrovascular diseases. An international group of professionals the forefront of research and education, provide their expertise about environmental and genetic determinants for cerebrovascular disease and stroke. The authors aim to provide information on developments of genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related risk factors of various subtypes of stroke, and MRI-markers of cerebrovascular disease.

    One in 2 men, and 1 in 3 women after the age of 40, will develop a stroke in their lifetime. The burden of cerebrovascular disease extends far beyond that of acute clinical events such as stroke, with "covert " vascular injury on brain MRI being highly prevalent in older community-dwelling persons. Therefore, improving our understanding of the risk factors for stroke and cerebrovascular disease is of paramount importance for improving prevention strategies. Secular trends in stroke epidemiology, risk factors, and intermediate markers (including carotid ultrasound, brain MRI and circulating biomarkers) are presented. Cutting edge information on genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related risk factors of various subtypes of stroke and MRI-markers of cerebrovascular diseases are displayed. This important book is an essential reference to physicians interested in more effective primary prevention of stroke.

    Summary

    The New Benchmark for Understanding the Latest Developments of Ion Channels

    Ion channels control the electrical properties of neurons and cardiac cells, mediate the detection and response to sensory stimuli, and regulate the response to physical stimuli. They can often interact with the cellular environment due to their location at the surface of cells. In nonexcitable tissues, they also help regulate basic salt balance critical for homeostasis. All of these features make ion channels important targets for pharmaceuticals.

    Handbook of Ion Channels illustrates the fundamental importance of these membrane proteins to human health and disease. Renowned researchers from around the world introduce the technical aspects of ion channel research, provide a modern guide to the properties of major ion channels, and present powerful methods for modeling ion channel diseases and performing clinical trials for ion channel drugs.

    Conveniently divided into five parts, the handbook first describes the basic concepts of permeation and gating mechanisms, balancing classic theories and the latest developments. The second part covers the principles and practical issues of both traditional and new ion channel techniques and their applications to channel research. The third part organizes the material to follow the superfamilies of ion channels. This part focuses on the classification, properties, gating mechanisms, function, and pharmacology of established and novel channel types. The fourth part addresses ion channel regulation as well as trafficking and distribution. The final part examines several ion channel-related diseases, discussing genetics, mechanisms, and pharmaceutical advances.

  • The Neurologic Examination
    La comanda in aproximativ 4 saptamani
    46800lei 420.00 lei

    Whereas most books about neurologic examinations are disease and anatomy oriented, The Neurologic Examination: Scientific Basis for Clinical Diagnosis focuses on a pathophysiological approach to the nervous system. The authors emphasize that the scientific interpretation of symptoms obtained from carefully taking the patient's history and noting signs found during physical examination are essential in the diagnosis of neurologic diseases, even if laboratory testing, such as electrophysiology and neuroimaging, are being more widely used. This book aims to provide a bridge from the basic sciences such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and molecular biology to the neurologic symptoms. Neurologic examinations provide the foundation for the diagnosis, and only after a thorough and expertly executed examination can one begin to incorporate laboratory testing and treatment.

    The Neurologic Examination: Scientific Basis for Clinical Diagnosis, based on the widely successful Japanese book Diagnosis of Neurological Diseases (Igakushoin, Japan, second edition 2013) by Dr. Shibasaki, hopes to revitalize the use of neurologic examinations before jumping straight into laboratory testing. Doing so can help cut down on time, patient and physician anxiety, and unnecessary testing expenses. This book is a must-read for all practicing neurologists, residents, and medical students.

    Key Features Include
    · The chapters are arranged in order of the actual steps in a neurologic examination;
    · Highly illustrated with figures and tables indicative of the neurologic signs and symptoms that may appear during the given step; and
    · 99 discussion boxes are inserted throughout to provide a more in-depth look at particular topics without interrupting the reading flow of the text.

    Up to 15% of all strokes occur in hospitalized patients, many of whom are there for surgical procedures or cardiac disorders. Outcomes can be poor, with high mortality - possibly related to co-morbidities and the complexities of hospital care. Risk factors for in-hospital stroke include specific operations and procedures (such as cardiac surgery), previous medical disorders (especially a history of stroke or transient ischemic attack), and certain physiological characteristics (including fever and dehydration). More rapid diagnosis and evaluation for interventional therapies is needed. This major new book examines the causes of treatment-related stroke in most hospital-based situations. Therapeutic approaches ? including interventional therapies and intra-arterial thrombolysis ? are highlighted, including experimental agents and interventions where other treatment possibilities are limited. Increasing the awareness of such interventions is an important factor in reducing delays in the assessment of patients who have strokes while in hospital, thus decreasing morbidity and reducing costs.
