Synthesizing the vast body of literature available in neurology into one accessible, clinically relevant volume, Neurology Evidence: The Practice-Changing Studies is an invaluable resource for students, residents, and fellows, as well as neurologists at all levels of experience.
Featuring the top 100 papers that have had the most significant impact on changing clinical practice, this unique title analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of both seminal and less-noticed studies. Readable commentary is provided for each study by both a senior and junior neurologist in each subspecialty.
- Focuses on those studies that have had the greatest impact on how neurologists care for patients today, explaining the relevance of the information, engaging readers through questions and answers, and offering commentary on future directions.
- Analyzes the insights gained from both positive and negative trials, with the overall goal of improving clinical outcomes for patients suffering from neurological disease.
- Provides interpretation by residents and fellows with a particular interest in each clinical topic, as well as the input of accomplished senior neurologists.
- Includes multiple studies on ischemic stroke, cerebral hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, neurologic intensive care, neuroinfectious diseases, neuro-oncology, neuromuscular diseases, movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune neurology, epilepsy, headache and pain, cognitive neurology, and pediatric neurology.
