Stacy Handbook of Dystonia

As many as 250,000 people in the United States have dystonia, making it the third most common movement disorder following essential tremor and Parkinson's disease.

Authoritative and reader-friendly, Handbook of Dystonia, Second Edition provides a wide-ranging overview of the latest research and developments regarding the pathogenesis, evaluation, and management of the disease. The book offers detailed coverage of every available treatment option for dystonia and includes four categorized sections on medical management, botulinum toxin injections, phenol and neurolytic therapy, and surgical intervention.

The book reviews the genetic factors of dystonia and supplies in-depth coverage of the neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropathology of the disease. It covers secondary causes of dystonia, including drug-induced and psychogenic presentations. It also examines non-motor symptoms relating to movement disorders and analyzes innovative approaches for treatment including deep brain stimulation.

New to the Second Edition:

Four new chapters dedicated to the discussion of individual botulinum toxins recently approved to treat dystonia: Botox, Myobloc, Disport, and Xeomin
Dystonic symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disorders
The use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a treatment option for dystonia
Spasticity and its pathogenesis, evaluation, and treatment with toxins, other injectables and surgical therapies

Summarizing what is known about the disorder, the book dramatically improves the recognition and understanding of this debilitating disease.

Handbook of Dystonia, Second Edition, will again be edited by Mark A. Stacy, whose reputation in the industry as an expert in this movement disorder has only grown since he developed the very successful first edition. Dr. Stacy, now a professor of neurology at Duke University, has attracted a team of internationally-recognised movement disorder specialists to write the first edition of the book. These experts have returned to update their chapters, and new treatment specialists have been recruited to write the new botulinum toxin chapters.
