Neuromuscular Disorders Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Neuromuscular Disorders
by Anthony A. Amato

Neuromuscular Disorders is comprehensive in scope, yet concise enough to serve as a valuable point-of-care guide for your day-to-day clinical practice.

This book provides a pragmatic approach to the evaluation and management of neuromuscular disease. Here, in a single source, you'll get an insightful look at both nerve and muscle conditions, ranging from motor neuron diseases to neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, and myopathies.

Neuromuscular Disorders opens with the clinical and laboratory approach to patients with neuromuscular disease, covering electrodiagnostic testing, nerve conduction studies, and muscle and nerve histopathology. With an emphasis on effective diagnosis and treatment, the substance of the text examines the full spectrum of specific neuromuscular diseases.


  • Convenient coverage of both nerve, muscle and neuromuscular transmission disorders-both primary and secondary neuromuscular diseases
  • Specific disease sections encompass the range of conditions likely to be encountered in clinical practice, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, radiculopathies and plexopathies, mononeuropathies, various polyneuropathies, toxic myopathies, and dozens more
  • The very latest diagnosis and treatment recommendations and protocols based on the most recent clinical literature and research
  • Well-illustrated with EMGs, histopathology, and clinical photos
