)-- “Botulinum Neurotoxin for Head and Neck Disorders,” recently published by Thieme, contains detailed injection instructions for using botulinum neurotoxin to treat head and neck disorders. The associated how-to videos, available on Thieme’s Media Center, offer otolaryngologists, neurologists, pain specialists, and others a complete guide to the management of motor, sensory and autonomic disorders of the head and neck region.
This book covers treatment methods for conditions ranging from hyperfunctional motor disorders (dystonia, tremor, dysphagia), to afferent pain disorders (temporomandibular joint disorder, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia) to autonomic disorders (hypersalivation, Frey's syndrome). For each indication, this text provides the reader with: reviews of the effects of the toxin on the nervous system, central pain thresholds, and central motor pathways; guidance on how to safely give an injection; and videos demonstrating injection techniques.
“There are no better guides to botulinum neurotoxin therapy around the head and neck than Dr. Blitzer and his co-editors and contributors. Not only was Dr. Blitzer a pioneer, but he has about as much experience as anyone alive. I don’t doubt that this book will be valuable to have within ready reach on your bookshelf.” — From the Foreword by Mark Hallett, MD
Focusing specifically on injection techniques for the therapeutic uses of botulinum neurotoxin for treating head and neck disorders, this manual fills an important gap in the literature. It gives clinicians current, authoritative, and in-depth information on administering botulinum neurotoxin most effectively for the head and neck disorders of their patients.
