Neuromuscular Problems in Orthopaedics

Neuromuscular Problems in Orthopaedics This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This new publication has been produced to acquaint the orthopedist with the neurological basis, testing, and management of conditions that may be encountered in their practice. There are 15 contributions from the United Kingdom and the United States. Medical and orthopedic aspects and management of cerebral palsy, congenital spinal lesions, dystrophies, myopathies, atrophies, spinal deformities, and the stroke patient are well covered. Four chapters follow that concentrate on upper limb, hip, knee, and foot management. The orthopedist rarely has such a concise review of cerebral palsy. This one touches on classification, drug treatment, and newer neurosurgical advances proposed by Peacock. Mark Hoffer gives an excellent overview of surgical management in upper and lower extremity involvement. Congenital lesions of the spinal cord covers meningomyelocele and hydrocephalus. There is an emphasis on bladder dysfunction and management, including the newer prosthetic urinary sphincter. John Sharrard gives an excellent orthopedic review based on age. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Neurology American Medical Association
