Electromyography and Neuromuscular Disorders combines the key elements of both clinical and electrodiagnostic medicine to aid the clinician in evaluating patients with neuromuscular disorders. The text serves as a practical manual in performing and interpreting nerve conduction studies and electromyography, while focusing on clinical-electrophysiologic correlations. All of the major neuromuscular disrders are reviewed from both the clinical and electrophysiologic points of view. Actual case studies are utilized to emphasize the major points.
