592 pp., Copyright 1997
Electromyography and Neuromuscular Disorders combines the key elements of both clinical and electrodiagnostic medicine to aid the clinician in evaluating patients with neuromuscular disorders. The text serves as a practical manual in performing and interpreting nerve conduction studies and electromyography, while focusing on clinical-electrophysiologic correlations. All of the major neuromuscular disrders are reviewed from both the clinical and electrophysiologic points of view. Actual case studies are utilized to emphasize the major points.
