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.
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 to this Edition
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.
