Practical Epilepsy by Aatif M. Husain MD

Written for busy practitioners and trainees, Practical Epilepsy is the only concise yet exhaustive reference encompassing the broad scope of clinical epilepsy. It contains core information for professionals who wish gain a breadth and depth of knowledge about epilepsy in a shorter amount of time than is required to read large reference books, and is a valuable review tool for self-assessment or exam preparation.

Designed to be read cover-to-cover, this highly practical reference covers basic science, assessment, and treatment and uses clear, succinct narratives, lists, tables, and illustrations to present the essential information needed to understand all aspects of epilepsy. The first section of the book introduces the clinical aspects of the science of epileptology with chapters on pathophysiology, genetics, classification, syndromes, epidemiology, etiology, and differential diagnosis. The second section is devoted to diagnostic evaluation, including instrumentation, normal and abnormal EEG, ICU EEG monitoring, scalp and intracranial video EEG monitoring, brain mapping, seizure semiology, neuroimaging, and other techniques. Section three covers treatment with a thorough review of basic principles, all classes of antiepileptic drugs, stimulation therapy, surgery, and dietary and alternative therapies. The final section focuses on special situations and associated concerns, ranging from status epilepticus and psychogenic nonepileptic seizures to migraines and reproductive issues.
