It is now 11 years since the publication of the first edition of Normal and Abnormal Swallowing: Imaging in Diagnosis and Therapy. These 11 years have seen an enormous change in the specialty of the study of dysphagia. First, we have seen the tragic loss of two of the pioneering giants in the field: Wylie J. Dodds, MD, of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and Martin W. Donner, MD, of The lohns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, a former coeditor of this book. Second, there has been a steady expansion in the number of professionals interested in and working in this spe cialty. The last 11 years have also seen the steady growth of the multidiscipli nary journal Dysphagia, devoted to swallowing and its disorders, as well as the formation of the Dysphagia Research Society, which held its tenth annual meeting in October 2001. The dysphagia special interest division (SID 13) of the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) now has some 3,000 members. At the same time, the world population is aging. Dysphagia will be an important health issue in this aging population.

Movement disorders affect a growing patient population, but providing comprehensive care is extremely difficult. Several of these conditions are progressive and incurable; the basal ganglia has a complex role in movement control, with many potential malfunctions. This book focuses on rehabilitation approaches that have been developed and utilized internationally in an attempt to minimize impairment and maximize participation amongst these patients. Each chapter is written by movement disorder experts, rehabilitation specialists and health care professionals, giving a broad overview of current interventions and emphasizing the need for interdisciplinary management, focussing on deliverable outcomes. Common conditions such as Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, dystonia and Huntington's disease are comprehensively covered. This book gives neurologists, geriatricians and rehabilitation specialists an up-to-date, theoretically-based approach to managing movement disorders related to basal ganglia malfunction. Also valuable for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, nurses and social workers seeking to develop and plan appropriate interventions.

Movement disorders - ranging from parkinsonism to a variety of hyperkinetic disorders, such as tremors, dystonic, chorea and myoclonus - can be the presenting or a prominent clinical feature in a broad spectrum of systemic conditions such as endocrine and metabolic disorders, autoimmune diseases, infections, intoxications, tumors and pareneoplastic syndromes, stroke and multiple sclerosis. The resulting clinical scenarios can be confusing and difficult to interpret by internists, generalists and neurologists. Movement Disorders in Neurologic and Systemic Disease provides comprehensive coverage of the most common movement disorders seen in systemic and general neurologic disease, as well as differential diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms. The chapters are written by internationally recognized experts and more than 50 illustrative videos highlight the phenomenology of some of the movement disorders and provide a useful 'bed-side' diagnostic tool. This book is a valuable resource for neurologists, physiatrists, psychiatrists, internists, primary care physicians and trainees in medicine and neurology.

Updated and expanded with nine additional chapters, Movement Disorder Emergencies: Diagnosis and Treatment, Second Edition is an indispensable resource for general neurologists, specialists, fellows, and residents eager to improve their approach toward the patient with a movement disorder emergency. In this comprehensive second edition, prominent neurologists from around the world logically and systematically review the major movement disorder emergencies, instructing the reader on how optimally to recognize and manage these problems. The authors cover a broad range of disorders, including acute dystonic reactions, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, startle syndromes, tic emergencies, and others; and they stress the importance of certain obvious diagnoses such as Wilson's disease, dopa-responsive dystonia, and Whipple's disease, in which delayed diagnosis in less emergent situations can lead to slowly evolving and often irreversible neurologic damage with tragic consequences. In addition, nine topics not covered in the first edition are provided, including genetic counseling and testing crises, suicide risk, psychogenic movement disorders, and others. Patient vignettes at the beginning of each chapter focus the reader's attention and highlight the urgency of the problem. Since astute clinical diagnosis of many movement disorders is still largely dependent on visual pattern recognition in the clinic, an accompanying online collection of physician-patient vignettes illustrates virtually all of the movement disorders described in the text. Importantly, the authors also discuss a range of new treatment paradigms that have emerged since publication of the first edition, especially deep brain stimulation. Authoritative and a leading text in the field, Movement Disorder Emergencies: Diagnosis and Treatment, Second Edition is an established, practical reference that continues to achieve excellence in the field of diagnosis and management of movement disorder emergencies.
