CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The third edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Neurology has been
completely rewritten and restyled, reflecting the rapid and extensive advances
that have taken place in this field over the last 10 years. Accompanying
chapters from neurology specialists across Europe and the USA are a set of
stunning specially commissioned full colour illustrations.
The book is divided into three sections. The first section discusses the
essentials of neurological diagnosis including, examination, lesion
localization, clinical pathology, electrophysiology, neuroradiology and tissue
biopsy. And it is within the neuroradiology chapter that the greatest
differences from the previous edition are evident. Increased access to advanced
imaging has greatly expanded neurological knowledge and here these techniques
are explored in depth alongside thorough descriptions of radiographic
techniques typically used in small animal practice.
The second section focuses on clinical presentation and has been expanded with
the addition of several new chapters on different presenting problems. This has
been necessary due to the overwhelming increase in information now available on
both new and previously described diseases. The aim of these chapters is to
provide the practising veterinary surgeon with information identify the area of
the nervous system responsible for their patient's clinical signs. The reader
is then guided through an appropriate diagnostic approach and the different
diseases to be considered. Each chapter in this section presents the diseases
in a similar fashion; detailing the clinical presentation, pathogenesis,
diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of each disease.This is followed by the
final section of completely new chapters devoted to the special treatment
considerations necessary for the neurological patient. Considered here are
emergency neurology presentations (e.g. head injury), neuroanaesthesia,
clinical pharmacology, radiotherapy, neurosurgery and rehabilitation of the
