Neuro-Otology: a volume in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series, provides a comprehensive translational reference on the disorders of the peripheral and central vestibular system. The volume is aimed at serving clinical neurologists who wish to know the most current established information related to dizziness and disequilibrium from a clinical, yet scholarly, perspective. This handbook sets the new standard for comprehensive multi-authored textbooks in the field of neuro-otology. The volume is divided into three sections, including basic aspects, diagnostic and therapeutic management, and neuro-otologic disorders. Internationally acclaimed chapter authors represent a broad spectrum of areas of expertise, chosen for their ability to write clearly and concisely with an eye toward a clinical audience. The Basic Aspects section is brief and covers the material in sufficient depth necessary for understanding later translational and clinical material. The Diagnostic and Therapeutic Management section covers all of the essential topics in the evaluation and treatment of patients with dizziness and disequilibrium. The section on Neuro-otologic Disorders is the largest portion of the volume and addresses every major diagnostic category in the field. Synthesizes widely dispersed information on the anatomy and physiology of neuro-otologic conditions into one comprehensive resource Features input from renowned international authors in basic science, otology, and neuroscience Presents the latest assessment of the techniques needed to diagnose and treat patients with dizziness, vertigo, and imbalance Provides the reader with an updated, in-depth review of the clinically relevant science and the clinical approach to those disorders of the peripheral and central vestibular system

Endoscopy is firmly established as a major technology for investigation and therapy in a wide range of disciplines. The field of otolaryngology or head and neck surgery owes its existence to the very special difficulties of examining the dark recesses of the head and neck. Therefore, this field has been at the forefront of developing endoscopic techniques for use in this anatomic area. While rhinologists have been quick to embrace the endoscope in the management of sinus disorders, otologists and skull base surgeons have been less than enthusiastic despite the vast range of possible applications in this area In this book the authors consider the new field of application of endoscope technology in neuro-otology and skull base surgery.

The focus of this publication on Neuro-Otology in Neurologic Clinics is on the patient presenting for urgent or emergent care with a chief complaint of new, previously-undiagnosed dizziness or vertigo. Intent is to emphasize throughout the issue five primary components of initial diagnosis and management: (1) Epidemiology, differential diagnosis, and disease definitions; (2) Bedside clinical features that differentiate dangerous from benign causes; (3) Appropriate use of advanced diagnostic tests (including imaging, vestibular tests) and consultations; (4) Application of early treatments (manipulative, pharmacologic, rehabilitative); and (5) Acute disposition strategies, including determining need for admission and urgency of follow-up. Articles have a consistent architecture to highlight key points: 1) Case Scenario (with a representative case example; videos are presented with many of these); 2) Prevalence & Pathomechanisms; 3) Definitions & Diagnostic Criteria; 4) Bedside & Laboratory Diagnostic Tests; 5) Acute Treatment Options (including manipulative, pharmacologic, rehabilitative); and 6) Triage & Disposition (including referrals and follow-up). The articles are presented with four major parts: Overall approach to acute dizziness and vertigo; Episodic vertigo and dizziness; Acute, continuous vertigo and dizziness; and Case unknowns. Among the topics covered are: Bedside evaluation; Transient ischemic attacks; Vestibularl neuritis and labyrinthitis; Stroke; Novel approach to diagnosing the acutely dizzy patient. David Newman-Toker leads this publication with associate editors renown in their fields - Kevin Kerber, William J. Meurer, Rodney Omron, and Jonathan Edlow.

Edited by Steven L Lewis, MD, Department of Neurological Sciences, RushUniversity Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois, USA How do you identify which neurologic syndromes occur due tosystemic disease? Neurological problems commonly occur in the context ofunderlying systemic disease, and may even be the presenting symptomof a medical condition that has not yet been diagnosed.Consequently neurologists need to be aware when a neurologicalpresentation might indicate an underlying systemic disorder. Neurological Disorders due to SystemicDisease provides the tools you need to make theseconnections. The unique neurologic presentation-based approachrelates to the common clinical situations you encounter,including: Headache Stroke Movement disorders Neuromuscular disorders Encephalopathies, seizures, myelopathies, neuro-ophthalmologicand neuro-otologic disorders, sleep disorders, and others Major categories of systemic illness are explored for eachpresentation to guide you towards a likely cause. Theseinclude: Endocrine, electrolyte, and metabolic disorders Systemic autoimmune disorders Organ dysfunction and failure, and critical medicalillness Systemic cancer and paraneoplastic disorders Systemic infectious disease Complications due to drugs and alcohol Vitamin and mineral deficiencies Written by a leading cast of experts, with a practical approachincluding ‘things to remember’ for each presentation,Neurological Disorders due to Systemic Disease shouldbe on every neurologist’s desk.
