"Aziz Shaibani, one of our most astute neuromuscular clinicians, has compiled a formidable collection of videos to guide both experienced and younger physicians who encounter these disorders, from the common to the rare. In addition to the video component, cases are accompanied by clinical synopses, diagnostic pearls, figures, tables, and multiple-choice questions to challenge and expand one's knowledge base. Dr. Shaibani should be applauded for this compilation, and I expect to refer to it as both a teaching tool and a guide for my clinic sessions. I see it as a worthy companion to the indispensable website provided to the neuromuscular community by Dr. Alan Pestronk of Washington University." --Gil I. Wolfe, MD, Irvin and Rosemary Smith Professor and Chair, Department of Neurology, University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Buffalo, NY
"The most effective way to diagnose neuromuscular diseases is by pattern recognition. Dr. Shaibani's video atlas provides a unique opportunity to 'examine' a wide variety of neuromuscular patients and to review key points leading to the correct diagnosis." --Carlayne E. Jackson, MD, FAAN, Professor of Neurology and Otolaryngology, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas
"A video atlas like Dr. Shaibani has produced is long overdue in the field of neuromuscular medicine. It combines all the best features of an effective teaching tool: superb videos, a question based format, excellent commentaries, and most importantly, a traditional case-based approach based on the clinical examination and findings. It is the next best thing to being at the bedside with a superb neuromuscular clinician!" --John T. Kissel, MD, Professor of Neurology & Pediatrics, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Nationwide Childrens' Hospital, Columbus, OH
"A Video Atlas of Neuromuscular Disorders is a wonderful collection of patient videos and pathology images that identifies the salient elements of neurological clinical diagnosis. The atlas validates the statement that 'a picture is worth a thousand words' and is invaluable reference for both students learning neurology as well as seasoned clinicians considering a rare diagnosis. The Atlas represents years of Dr. Shaibani's experience treating patients with neuromuscular disease that we all can now benefit from." --Michael Polydefkis, MD, MHS, Johns Hopkins, Department of Neurology, Baltimore, MD
"Dr. Aziz Shaibani's A Video Atlas of Neuromuscular Disorders presents neuromuscular medicine in a case-based approach with clinical vignettes, video clips, thought provoking questions and concise topic reviews. Each case covers many salient points, yet is easily digestible. This novel, multimodal format draws the reader from case to case, leaving one eagerly anticipating the challenge of the next patient. You will not want to stop learning until this book is done." --Matthew P. Wicklund, MD, FAAN, Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics, Penn State College of Medicine, Department of Neurology, Hershey, PA
"A first of its kind video atlas of neuromuscular disorders..." --Practical Neurology
"Overall this is an excellent (and, considering the wealth of material, reasonably priced) book that emphasizes the lasting value of a diagnostic approach based on a detailed history and accurate interpretation of clinical signs also in the age of next generation genetics." --Neuromuscular Disorders
