THE MANAGEMENT OF SEVERE CHRONIC MUSCLE SPASTICITY IS ONE OF THE MAJOR CHALLENGES IN CLINICAL NEUROLOGICAL PRACTICE.TODAY. IT REQUIRES A SKILFUL EVALUATION OF THE PATIENT'S IMPAIRMENTS AND THEIR IMPACT ON MOTOR FUNCTION AND THE SETTING OF TREATMENT GOALS THAT ARE REALISTIC, MEANINGFUL TO THE PATIENT AND RELEVANT IN THAT PATIENT'S ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIAL CONTEXT. CLINICIANS HAVE MANY DRUGS AND OTHER TREATMENT MODALITIES AT THEIR DISPOSAL FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF SPASTICITY. HOWEVER, NONE OF THESE TREATMENTS IS ENTIRELY SATISFACTORY. THIS BOOK IS ABOUT THE LATEST ADDITION TO THE LIST OF ANTISPASTICITY AGENTS - BOTULINUM TOXIN. THE BOOK IS INTENDED TO BE A SHORT PRACTICAL GUIDE TO THE USE OF BOTULINUM TOXIN IN THE TREATMENT OF MUSCLE SPASTICITY. IT REVIEWS THE CLINICAL EFFICACY OF THIS TREATMENT, DESCRIBES THE INJECTION TECHNIQUES OF THE COMMONLY TREATED MUSCLE GROUPS AND MAKES RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE DOSE OF BOTULINUM TOXIN FOR INDIVIDUAL MUSCLES.

We hope this book will be of use to a range of clinicians who treat patients with spasticity as part of their specialty, especially those who wish to improve their skills in ultrasound-guided muscle localisation for botulinum toxin injections. These may include rehabilitation physicians, neurologists, stroke physicians, physiotherapists, neurology/rehabilitation nurse specialists and occupational therapists. It may also be of assistance to general practitioners and general physicians who encounter patients with neurological diagnoses and the subsequent complications.

Very few therapeutic agents in clinical medicine have found indication for so many clinical conditions, and in such a short time as did botulinum neurotoxins (Botox and others). Chronic migraine, bladder dysfunction , dystonia, hemifacial spasm , blepharospasm , drooling, excessive sweating and spasticity are all approved by FDA and many other indications are in the near horizon . The aesthetic/cosmetic use of Botox and other BoNTs already has a huge market worldwide. Stroke, Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral palsy as well as brain and spinal injury are among clinical conditions in which some of patients’ major symptoms can respond to botulinum toxin therapy Several books have been written on the subject of Botox and other neurotoxins for treatment of medical disorders ( including two books by Jabbari both published by Springer 2015 & 2017). However, despite the huge interest and enthusiasm of the public to learn more about Botox and other toxins, there is currently no book in the market on this subject which is specifically designed to inform and educate the public on botulinum toxin therapy. Botulinum Toxin Treatment explains and discusses in simple language the structure and function of botulinum toxin and other neurotoxins as well as the rational for its utility in different disease conditions. Safety, factors affecting efficacy and duration of action, as well as cost and insurance issues are also addressed.

This book provides an authoritative overview of botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) treatment menus for 14 pain categories with an evidence based literature review on each pain disorder, illustrative figures along with brief video clips showing the techniques and patient interviews. Introductory chapters cover basic information about the mechanism, function and the analgesic effects of the BoNTs based on the data derived from animal studies. Clinical chapters define pain in conditions such as post-herpetic and post-traumatic neuralgias, plantar fasciitis, low back pain, post-surgical pain syndromes and migraine in detail, provide discussion of current modes of treatment and updated information on BoNT therapy. Each chapter also includes illustrative case histories. Botulinum Toxin Treatment of Pain Disorders will prove an invaluable resource for clinicians and researchers involved in the treatment of pain disorders including neurologists, pain medicine specialists, anesthesiologists, internists, those conducting research in pharmacology and toxicology as well as students in these areas.

Although many books focus on one or another aspect of laryngology, such as voice, swallowing, or airway problems, few cover the breadth of the discipline from a teaching standpoint. The editors sought collaboration from a broad range of international contributors in this text, which avoids the cover-all reference nature of extant texts, by having each contributor write in direct, consumable units for the reader, thus providing an ideal resource for both teaching and learning. Covers every aspect of laryngology without bias on one particular aspect. Designed specifically to meet student needs rather than trying to unsuccessfully serve multiple audiences.
