Hyperkinetic movement disorders comprise a range of diseases characterized by unwanted and uncontrollable, or poorly controllable, involuntary movements. The phenomenology of these disorders is quite variable encompassing chorea, tremor, dystonia, myoclonus, tics, other dyskinesias, jerks and shakes. Discerning the underlying condition can be very difficult given the range and variability of symptoms. But recognizing the phenomenology and understanding the pathophysiology are essential to ensure appropriate treatment. Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders provides a clinical pathway for effective diagnosis and management of these disorders. The stellar international cast of authors distils the evidence so you can apply it into your practice. The judicious use of • diagnostic criteria • algorithms • rating scales • management guidelines provides a robust framework for clear patient management. Throughout the text, QR codes provide smartphone access to case-study videos of hyperkinetic symptoms. Purchase includes an enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition. This is an interactive digital version featuring: • all text and images in fully searchable form • integrated videos of presentations - View a sample video: www.wiley.com/go/albanese • highlighting and note taking facilities • book marking • linking to additional references Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders provides you with the essential visual and practical tools you need to effectively diagnose and treat your patients.
