Optic Nerve Disorders: Diagnosis and Management

$2

Retail PDF ,

by Jane W. Chan (Editor)

The optic nerve and the brain comprise the main anatomic components of neuro-ophthalmology. Although there are numerous handbooks and major texts describing all the common disorders of neuro-ophthalmology, Optic Nerve Disorders is a practical reference book that focuses only on common optic nerve disorders.

This book is organized by optic nerve diagnoses commonly encountered in a neuro-ophthalmologic practice. It is written in a clear, concise style for quick, easy reference in the clinic. The organization of each chapter includes:

epidemiology

diagnosis by clinical signs and symptoms, as well as by electrophysiologic, ocular, and neuroimaging techniques

pathophysiology

management by conventional treatments; experimental/newer medications under consideration

prognosis

Updated information on diagnostic techniques, including OCT and mfVEP, and genetic testing for hereditary optic neuropathies are discussed. New data from clinical studies, such as beta-interferons for optic neuritis, are presented for the management of each disorder. Diagnosis of neuro-ophthalmologic disorders with newer neuroimaging techniques, such as PET, SPECT, and diffusion-weighted imaging, is fully explained. New data from clinical studies (beta-interferons for optic neuritis, for instance) are presented for the management of each disorder.
