Description

A unique guide to managing cranial neuropathy cost effectively—from diagnosis to treatment!

Cranial neuropathy can be a symptom of a devastating, life-threatening condition or a benign disease with spontaneous full recovery in a majority of patients. While testing options are available, they can be costly and sometimes may be unnecessary. Cost-Effective Evaluation and Management of Cranial Neuropathy by Seilesh C. Babu, Neal M. Jackson, and an impressive team of multidisciplinary contributors reflect decades of experience. Combining evidence-based medicine from the literature with years of firsthand expertise, this reader-friendly book offers cost-effective methodology and in-depth insights for evaluating and managing cranial neuropathy.

The textbook provides a clear-cut approach and practical algorithm for cranial nerve evaluation and management of neuropathy. Contributions from neurotologists, neurosurgeons, rhinologists, ophthalmologists, head and neck cancer surgeons, laryngologists, and speech language pathologists ensure a well-rounded and comprehensive approach. The text begins with an introduction to cost-effective management in medicine, laying a foundation for the book's primary focus. It concludes with cranial neuropathy radiology considerations and a helpful cost-effective summary with key points.

Key Features:

  • Unique algorithms provide clinicians with simple-to-follow, cost-effective methods for managing complex disorders that result in facial nerve weakness, hearing loss, and swallowing problems
  • Pathology-specific chapters cover a wide range of conditions including olfactory disorders, vision disorders, audiovestibular disorders, facial and trigeminal nerve disorders, and spinal accessory nerve disorders
  • Diagnosis and management of cranial nerve disorder symptoms such as vision loss, dysphagia, and dysphonia
This excellent resource is a must have for all clinicians who potentially encounter patients with cranial nerve weakness, including primary care and emergency medicine physicians, otolaryngologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons.
