Ultrasound-Guided Chemodenervation Procedures provides a comprehensive multimedia approach to neurotoxin therapy using ultrasound. This combined text/atlas/DVD offers a complete review of toxin therapy, both current indications and emerging applications, as well as a detailed review of ultrasound technology and ultrasound guidance techniques for botulinum toxin injections and nerve blocks. The work also includes a detailed anatomic and pictorial atlas (print and DVD), which will be invaluable to clinicians performing procedures with or without ultrasound guidance. The text section of the book is a reference manual, covering conditions and indications, chemodenervation agents, and ultrasound basics including essential physics, machine settings, artifacts, scanning techniques, and procedural guidance techniques. The illustrated print and DVD atlas sections offer a stunning visual roadmap for understanding ultrasound anatomy, localizing muscles, and safely and successfully performing chemodenervation procedures.

Features of Ultrasound-Guided Chemodenervation Procedures include:

  • More than 1,300 clinical pictures, anatomical drawings, and ultrasound stills
  • Over 300 video clips of structures, injections, and techniques for performing chemodenervation and neurolysis or combination therapies with ultrasound
  • Practical yet comprehensive-an indispensable print and electronic reference for clinicians
  • Review of ultrasound technology, techniques, and clinical applications for chemodenervation
  • Review of clinical indications and emerging uses of botulinum toxin

Editorial Review(s) 

The book serves as a thorough anatomic atlas for the structures that are injected and surface injection points. The DVD provides excellent presentations of the dynamic anatomy in ultrasound.[...] Given the popularity of ultrasound guided procedures, this is an excellent resource. The DVD is unique and its interactive features are very helpful for those wanting to perform these interventions. - Doody's Reviews, September 2013
