Neurological Disorders and Pregnancy Book Review:

Timely diagnosis and management of neurological diseases during pregnancy poses major therapeutic challenges to neurologists and other non-neurologist health care providers. Pregnancy is a unique period in life associated with significant hormonal and other physiologic changes in female patients, which may trigger or alter the course of neurological and psychiatric disorders. In addition, many diagnostic procedures that can be performed in non-pregnant women are prohibited during pregnancy for safety reasons. Therapeutic decisions and management of a pregnant patient with neurological disorders heavily depends on the issue of the reasonable balance between the risks of no treatment versus active treatment for the mother and her fetus. This book provides a review of the latest findings in this field, giving the neurologist and non-neurologist the information they need to determine the best treatment. Neurological disorders covered include multiple sclerosis, stroke and epilepsy. Discusses how neurological disorders should be managed in a pregnant patient Includes contributions from leading authorities

Neurology and Pregnancy Book Review:

Pregnancy complicated by neurological disorders is a challenging area for both obstetricians and neurologists. Treatment of the maternal condition often needs to be adjusted because of concerns for the fetus, and some conditions have a major impact on the method, mode, and timing of delivery. Many of the clinical problems that arise in pregnant women with a neurological disease have not been the subject of clinical trials, so management must often be based on what published evidence is available and a good understanding of the likely interactions between the condition and pregnancy and vice versa. The editors and contributors represent a team with considerable experience in this area. They offer their "best practice" advice as how to treat the mother effectively, ensuring fetal safety, as well as embracing a philosophy that the pregnancy of a woman with a neurological disease should be made as enjoyable and rewarding for her as is possible.

Neurological Diseases and Pregnancy Book Review:

For a woman of reproductive age, any medical appointment is a pre-conception visit and an opportunity to address pre-existing conditions that affect pregnancy and the maternal-fetal dyad. However, many neurologic conditions are rarely seen in pregnancy, and limited experience and knowledge may prevent the team from developing a shared approach to these complex conditions during pregnancy. Neurological Diseases and Pregnancy: A Coordinated Care Model for Best Management brings together experts across the disciplines of maternal fetal medicine, neurology, obstetrics, family planning, genetics, anesthesia, psychiatry, neurosurgery, and lactation to provide a multi-disciplinary, comprehensive, protocol-driven guide on best care for patients with neurologic disease before, during and after pregnancy. Each chapter provides a detailed care map on each unique disorder, and discusses the use of neurological medications during pregnancy and in lactation. Through this multi-disciplinary approach clinicians can navigate the complexities of preconception and pregnancy care, and help to optimize outcomes for the mother-infant dyad. Beyond pregnancy care, this volume further serves as a resource on best care for the life-course of women affected by neurologic disease including pre-pregnancy planning, genetic counseling, contraception, and sexuality in neurologic disease, as well as post-partum depression and menopausal neurologic changes.

Neurological Complications of Pregnancy Book Review:

This volume is a definitive source of guidance for all physicians who care for pregnant women with acute and chronic neurological disorders. A group of acknowledged experts addresses the full range of problems arising in the diagnosis and management of neurological disorders during pregnancy. The contributors recommend practical solutions to many of the complicated clinical dilemmas confronting physicians in everyday practice - such as monitoring antiepileptic drug levels; evaluating the teratogenic hazards of psychotropic drugs; managing stroke, migraine, and other neurological disorders during pregnancy; assessing the safety and potential benefits of neurodiagnostic studies; and dealing with legal issues concerning prevention of fetal harm. Highlights of the book include an original synthesis and meta-analysis of all available data on multiple sclerosis during pregnancy. An in-depth discussion of the endocrine aspects of epilepsy in women is followed by up-to-date guidelines on treatment of epilepsy during pregnancy. Noted experts detail strategies for management of low back pain and migraine - two of the most common pain disorders - and for diagnosis and treatment of cerebral ischemia, cerebral hemorrhage, and eclampsia. Other chapters cover rheumatological disorders, maternal head trauma, central nervous system neoplasms, infections of the central nervous system, movement disorders, pregnancy in paraplegic women, peripheral nerve disorders, and muscle diseases. The book presents comprehensive guidelines on treatment of psychiatric disorders and use of psychotropic medications during pregnancy. Full consideration is also given to the management of alcohol and cocaine abuse. The final chapters address two crucial concerns in contemporary clinical practice: neurodiagnostic imaging of pregnant patients, and legal issues involving protection of the fetus. Neurological Complications of Pregnancy is an essential reference for neurologists, obstetricians, internists, and family practitioners. It offers sound approaches to the clinical decision-making challenges that are often posed by neurological disorders in pregnant patients.

Medical Problems During Pregnancy Book Review:

This comprehensive, case-based title takes a practical approach to treating the pregnant patient by illustrating common and less common issues that arise during pregnancy. Outlining how difficult it often is to discern normal changes from pathological changes in the pregnant patient, Medical Problems During Pregnancy addresses not only this core dilemma but also a full array of specific, challenging issues to consider when pregnant patients present with conditions like epilepsy, hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias and renal disease – disorders requiring medication despite some risks. Although standard best practices generally determine medication use, the practicality of medication at various stages of pregnancy is highly variable. Medical Problems During Pregnancy outlines key points to consider when prescribing medication and additionally offers a range of practical suggestions that can greatly improve the physician-patient interaction. A unique and invaluable addition to the literature, Medical Problems During Pregnancy will be of great interest to practicing obstetricians, primary care clinicians, family practice physicians, nurse practitioners, and other allied health professionals.

Decision Algorithms for Emergency Neurology Book Review:

This book adopts a novel approach: procedures: instead of discussing the diagnostic categories of neurological syndromes, it focuses on the symptoms of common neurological presentations (especially in the emergency room or on the ward), and the diagnostic hypotheses that can be validated or rejected case by case as a result. Each chapter covers one of the main symptoms of emergencies in neurology – from transient consciousness disturbances to focal deficits, acute muscular disorders, respiratory insufficiency in neurological disorders, headaches, delirium, seizures and epileptic status, para-and tetraplegia, and head trauma, to acute functional disorders – and includes tables and figures to allow readers to gain a quick and easy, yet comprehensive overview of the topic. The book guides readers through various scenarios generated by the onset of symptoms, the clinical tools for differential diagnostics, and the principles of acute and post-acute phase therapy, managed by decision algorithms supported by the most recent scientific evidence. The resulting precedural profile – created through the collaboration of over 80 specialists in neurology or other disciplines – makes this text a valuable tool for neurologists, neurology residents and allied professionals in their daily clinical practice, as well as medical students.
