Product information Anatomic Basis of Neurologic Diagnosis

First edition received a prestigious 2010 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Silver Award for excellence in publishing

An anatomical, patient-oriented approach to neurologic diagnosis from renowned neurosurgeons

Despite strides in advanced neuroimaging techniques, what remains constant in the practice of neurology and neurosurgery is the enduring value of observing and interpreting patient signs and symptoms at bedside. Authored by renowned neurosurgeons Cary D. Alberstone, Edward C. Benzel, Michael P. Steinmetz and distinguished colleagues, Anatomic Basis of Neurologic Diagnosis, Second Edition details neuroanatomy in an organized, thorough manner, tipping its hat to the art and science of neurologic diagnosis. Like the widely acclaimed first edition, the updated volume emphasizes a logical, patient-oriented approach to neurologic diagnosis, conspicuously absent from most standard neuroanatomy texts.

New to this second edition are a portfolio of carefully curated MRI images and sections on neuroplasticity, peripheral nerve architecture, peripheral nerve injury and recovery, electrodiagnostic diagnosis of radiculopathy, tremor, deep brain stimulation targets (and side effects), autonomic disorders, altered states of consciousness, and spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage. Two sophisticated new chapters address our current understanding of Memory and Neural Networks.

Key Features:

  • Clinically pertinent anatomy is described succinctly and in plain language
  • The cardinal manifestations of regional nervous system disorders facilitate localization of lesions
  • Logical approaches to system-based complaints aid in differential diagnosis
  • Learning objectives begin each chapter, graced by a variety of easy-to-grasp conceptual drawings
  • MRI images, new to this edition, enrich and amplify the text

The authors present a practical, reader-friendly, and patient-centric approach to diagnosing neurological disorders. Residents, fellows, and practitioners in neurology, neurosurgery, and neuroradiology, and those studying for board examinations, will enjoy reading this indispensable resource.

Frequently asked questions

What is an e-book?
An e-book is the electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file.
The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.

What formats are there and how do they differ?
Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.
The PDF format corresponds 1:1 to the printed book and has a fixed page layout. It is therefore ideal for computers, tablets and larger e-readers.
E-books in EPUB format adapt dynamically to the display size of the reading device. It is therefore particularly suitable for smaller devices such as smartphones and small-format tablets and e-readers.

Do I need a special program to open the e-book?
Free reading programs for e-books are available for all operating systems and reading devices: for PDFs, for example, Adobe Acrobat Reader, for EPUBs, for example, Adobe Digital Editions.

How does the download work?
You will find a download link on the order confirmation page and in your order confirmation email. Click on this link to start the download and save the file in a directory of your choice.

Can I read the e-book on multiple devices?
Yes, you can use your e-book on multiple reading devices.

Do I have to be online to read e-books?
No, after downloading to your reading device you can access the e-book offline at any time.

Are Thieme e-books copy-protected?
Yes, e-books are protected by a digital watermark. This means that there are no restrictions for you when using them.

Am I allowed to lend or sell e-books?
E-books are for private use only and may not be lent or sold.

Am I allowed to exchange or return the e-book?
Due to their nature, e-books are not suitable for return. Just like downloads of other electronic files (films, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
