Neuromuscular diseases: a practical approach to diagnosis and management
This is the third edition of Neuromuscular Diseases, containing extensive revision and rewriting to take account of the major advances that have occurred in the field of neuromuscular diseases, but following the same basic plan as the earlier editions. The aims of this new edition remain unchanged: indeed it is felt to be more important than ever to correlate the different categories of information about neuromuscular diseases into an account that allows clinicians to understand their patients' problems, and to plan appropriate investigation and management. Many new references have also been added. This book should provide a convenient source of practical and theoretical information that will be useful to managing patients with neuromuscular problems. Both authors are recognised experts in the field of neuromuscular disorders and the book is based o n their extensive and continuing clinical and research experience.
