This easy-to-use manual is a timesaving guide to assigning musculoskeletal impairment ratings for worker's compensation, personal injury, and disability claims. It follows most of the principles in the American Medical Association's Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment and presents these guidelines in quick-reference tabular format for busy clinicians.
Section One summarizes the procedures and terminology of impairment rating. Section Two contains rating tables for the upper extremity, lower extremity, spine, pelvis, skin, and pain. Appendices include tables for converting ratings from one body part to another and combining multiple injuries.
Macnab's Backache, Fourth Edition is an enhancement and update of Ian Macnab's classic principles of spinal anatomy and pathology, which form the cornerstones of clinical evaluation and treatment of spinal disorders. This edition is geared to practitioners in a wide variety of specialties and emphasizes the initial evaluation and treatment of patients with back pain and/or sciatica.
The book thoroughly describes and illustrates the pathoanatomy of various spinal disorders and its correlation with clinical symptoms. Also included are chapters on history taking, examination of the back, differential diagnosis of low back pain, pain management, and a new chapter on injections.
Building upon the success of prior editions, Practical Neuroangiography, Third Edition, provides a detailed and richly illustrated guide to diagnostic and interventional neuroangiography and its role in the management of neurovascular disease.
The Third Edition provides the new fellow with the background knowledge needed to understand these procedures, the unusual variant anatomy that can affect treatment and outcomes, and the field’s current limitations.
Organized for ease of use, the book's four sections address techniques and safety; normal anatomy & pathology correlated with angiographic images; angiographic findings of neurovascular diseases; and an introduction to interventional techniques and emergency procedures. Actual patient cases provide practical stepwise coverage of each procedure, tips for accurate diagnosis, and guidance in clinical decision-making.
NEW to the Third Edition…
• CT and MR perfusion studies address the therapeutic challenges of vessel occlusion and damage to cranial tissue.
• More detailed techniques and concise patient cases combine to create a hands-on guide to successful outcomes.
• Strong emphasis on radiation risk & safety put the patient’s well-being first during therapeutic decision-making.
• Emphasis on the angiographic anatomy of the cerebrovascular system details key pathologic features that affect therapeutic approaches.
• Companion website with text/image search and additional cases is cross-referenced to specific chapters in the text for easy access to critical information.
Revised and written by leaders in the field, this expanded Second Edition text/atlas focuses on surgical techniques and surgical decision making.
