In this, the 2ndedition of her original text on the theory, science, and treatment of common and uncommon disorders of the oculomotor system, Professor Ida Lucy Iacobucci, Certified Orthoptist, presents updated material on the many advances made in the field since her original text was first published in 1980. This book is based on her lectures to Orthoptic and Ophthalmology students and it encompasses over 50 years of clinical and teaching experience.
Prof. Iacobucci describes a wide range of clinical tests to evaluate multiple categories of strabismus and provides a wealth of detail on the characteristics, management, and orthoptic treatment options for each. The book is organized for quick and easy reference and is a valuable addition to required texts for students.
This brief, clinically-focused volume is informed by Lawrence I. Golbe’s three decades of research and tertiary clinical care in progressive supranuclear palsy, a complex disorder with rapidly changing diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. It is an ideal source for the general neurologist seeking a refresher and the primary care provider, neurological nurse, or physical, occupational or speech therapist who must address their patients’ specialized needs.
A Clinician’s Guide to Progressive Supranuclear Palsy emphasizes early diagnostic signs, medication options, non-pharmacologic management and palliative care. It offers a quick overview of the complications of PSP most likely to prompt an ER visit; a widening spectrum of PSP variants; and ample description of the genetics, epidemiology, natural history, pathology, molecular biology and neurochemistry of PSP. The PSP Rating Scale used in the book is a convenient tool for clinicians in routine practice and the leading PSP clinical measure world-wide. Golbe provides a practical and useful guidebook to help all clinicians learn and battle this complex disorder.
A thirteenth-century treatise on the theory and practice of ophthalmology, this unique work provides a window on what passed for medical knowledge of the eye during the late Middle Ages. Although little is known of the author, Benevenutus Grassus, he seems to have roamed Italy in the early thirteenth century as a medical practitioner specializing in diseases of the eye.
