The 5-minute neurology consult by D. Joanne Lynn( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are pleased to bring a second edition of the Neurology volume to the 5-Minute Consult series. This book is intended to present current clinical information to several groups: - Busy clinical practitioners in neurology general practice, emergency rooms, and non-neurologic specialties who need a reference source where they can quickly refresh their knowledge about the basics of a neurologic condition - Residents and students seeking rapid access to basic data about diagnosis and treatment for various neurologic conditions - Patients and families who want quick information about their diagnoses and referrals to patient information sources and support organizations Neurology is an area of medicine that incites anxiety and discomfort for many students, nurses, and physicians who have not trained in the specialty. Effective therapeutic interventions continue to expand and flourish; every practitioner must understand the diagnosis and treatment of basic neurologic conditions. Information is provided in a structured format that allows easy access and rapid assimilation. We have attempted to offer relevant and current references. We hope that this rapid information source will help all to approach patients suffering from neurologic disorders with more confidence."--Provided by publisher
Handbook of neuro-oncology neuroimaging by Herbert B Newton( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the field of Neuro-Oncology has grown considerably in the last 10 to 15 years and has a rather extensive literature, there are no comprehensive, single-source books that summarize the current literature and future trends of neuroimaging in neuro-oncology. This book covers this topic in more comprehensive fashion, making it an important addition to the armamentarium of physicians that care for patients with brain tumors and other neuro-oncological disorders. Well-founded in basic science, it includes chapters that provide an overview of relevant background material in critical areas such as physics, contrast agents, ultra-high field brain MRI, and molecular imaging
Handbook of brain tumor chemotherapy by Herbert B Newton( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Treatment of patients with a brain tumor remains one of the most challenging and difficult areas of modern oncology. Recent advances in the molecular biology of these neoplasms have improved our understanding of the malignant phenotype and have lead to the development of novel forms of chemotherapy, including targeted agents. The Handbook of Brain Tumor Chemotherapy reviews the state-of-the-art of chemotherapy development and clinical treatment of patients with this devastating disease. Handbook of Brain Tumor Chemotherapy offers a unique cutting-edge compendium of basic science and clinical information on the subject of brain tumor chemotherapy, reviewing what has been accomplished thus far and how the field will continue to evolve with the development of more specific and efficacious chemotherapeutic agents. This book represents the most complete single-volume resource available for information on the subject of brain tumor chemotherapy. * Provides the most up to date information regarding conventional forms of cytotoxic chemotherapy, as well as the basic science and clinical application of molecular therapeutics, for the treatment of brain tumors * Broadly appeals to anyone interested in the field of Neuro-Oncology and in the treatment of patients with brain tumors * Useful to clinicians interested in a thorough overview of the use of chemotherapy in patients with a broad range of brain tumors as well as serving as a source of background information to basic scientists and pharmaceutical researchers with an interest in the molecular therapeutics of brain tumors
Neurological complications of systemic cancer and antineoplastic therapy by Herbert B Newton( )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neurological Complications of Systematic Cancer and Antineoplastic Therapy provides an in-depth review of common manifestations related to neurology that occur in patients with systemic cancer. These include brain metastases, spinal cord compression, cerebrovascular events, and leptomeningeal disease. The book also discusses less common complications such as paraneoplastic disorders and neoplastic plexopathy. Highlights include: The pathophysiology and molecular biology of cancer and the metastatic phenotype Metastatic spread to cranial and peripheral nerves and brachial and lumbosacral plexuses Metabolic and nutritional disorders CNS infections Neurological complications of immunotherapy and bone marrow transplants Additional chapters review problems related to each specific tumor type, such as breast, lung, and colorectal, as well as gynecological cancer, genitourinary cancer, and malignant melanoma. The book also discusses neurological complications related to treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy. Bringing clinical trial knowledge from the bench to the bedside, this volume is an essential reference for the practicing oncologist and neurologist
Epilepsy and brain tumors by Herbert B Newton( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patients with brain tumor-related epilepsy (BTRE) suffer from two serious pathologies simultaneously - a brain tumor and a secondary form of epilepsy. Although there has been remarkable progress in BTRE research in recent years, it remains an on-going challenge for clinicians and continues to stimulate much debate in the scientific community. This volume is the first to be completely dedicated to BTRE, and in doing so it explores issues faced by the health care team as well as some of the novel and promising directions that future research may take. Epilepsy and Brain Tumors is not only a c
