Trigeminal Nerve Injuries Book Review:

Trigeminal nerve injuries present complex clinical challenges and can be very distressing for patients, resulting in abnormal sensations of the oro-facial region, yet surgeons may lack the knowledge required for optimal patient management based upon the specific nerve injury. This textbook is the first to be devoted to the diagnosis and management of trigeminal nerve injuries. A wide range of topics are covered, including historical perspectives, demographics, etiology, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, clinical neurosensory testing, nonsurgical management, and surgical management and principles of microneurosurgery, specifically involving the inferior alveolar and lingual nerves. Algorithms and a glossary are provided that will assist in the clinical management of these complex scenarios. The authors include surgeons with considerable experience and expertise in the field who have previously published on the subject. This book will serve as an ideal clinical reference for surgeons with patients who sustain trigeminal nerve injuries.

Facial Nerve and its disorders Book Review:

Facial musculature plays an important role in mastication, facial expression, emotions, and speech. Facial musculature is supplied by the facial nerve. Disorders affecting facial nerve would cause facial paralysis causing asymmetry of the face due to paralysis of muscles of the face. This manuscript discusses clinical anatomy of facial nerve, pathologies affecting this nerve, its clinical manifestations and various management modalities available in managing these conditions. This book has been authored from the perspective of otolaryngologist. Otolaryngologists commonly encounter facial nerve lesions since this nerve courses through the temporal bone. The intratympanic portion of facial nerve comes under the domain of otolaryngologist. Lesions of facial nerve in this book has been arranged under two headings: 1. Non neoplastic disorders of the facial nerve 2. Neoplastic disorders of the facial It should be pointed out facial nerve has excellent regenerative capacity and it is never late to attempt decompression / trying out various anastomotic techniques in managing patients with facial nerve paralysis. Rehabilitation process in facial nerve paralysis should focus on managing and protecting the eyes of the patient. In facial paralysis patients are unable to close their eyelids due to paralysis of the muscles. Various rehabilitation procedures have been developed to manage these patients. Imaging of facial nerve has undergone tremendous advancement in recent times. A chapter on imaging of facial nerve has also been added to this manuscript to make it complete.

Understanding Body Dysmorphic Disorder Book Review:

In a world obsessed with appearance, it is not surprising that body dysmorphic disorder, or BDD -- an emotionally painful obsession with perceived flaws in one's appearance -- has manifested itself as a troubling and relatively common problem for many individuals. In The Broken Mirror, the first and most definitive book on BDD, Dr. Katharine A. Phillips provided a comprehensive manual for patients and their physicians by drawing on years of clinical practice, scientific research, and professional evaluations of over 1,000 patients. Now, in Understanding Body Dysmorphic Disorder: An Essential Guide , the world's leading authority on BDD reaches out to patients, their friends, and their families with this concise and updated handbook. BDD causes sufferers to be obsessed by perceived flaws in their appearance and may afflict as much as two percent of the population, or nearly five million people. Many sufferers are able to function well in society, but remain secretly obsessed by their "hideous acne" or "horrible nose," sneaking constant peeks at a pocket mirror, or spending hours at a time redoing makeup. Others find their lives disintegrate because of their appearance obsessions. It is not an uncommon disorder, simply a hidden one, since sufferers are often embarrassed to tell even their closest friends about their concerns. Using stories and interviews to show the many different behaviors and symptoms of BDD, and a quick self-assessment questionnaire, Dr. Phillips guides readers through the basics of the disorder and through the many treatment options that work and don't work. With Understanding Body Dysmorphic Disorder: An Essential Guide, sufferers will find both helpful advice and much needed reassurance in a compact, down-to-earth indispensable book.
