Vertigo, dizziness, and imbalance rank amongst the most common presenting symptoms in neurology, ENT, geriatric medicine, and general practice. These symptoms can originate from many different organs and systems, such as the inner ear, general medical conditions, and neurological and psychological disorders. The Oxford Textbook of Vertigo and Imbalance covers the scientific basis, clinical diagnosis, and treatments for the disorders leading to dizzinessand poor balance. Each chapter comprehensively covers the established knowledge of each disorder, as well as introducing the reader to the latest research aspects. Additionally, the specialist authors offer their own clinical opinions based on practice and experience. Didactic tables,figures, and diagrams are used throughout this volume to enhance understanding. The print edition is complemented by an online version, which allows access to the full content of the textbook, contains links from the references to primary research journal articles, allows full text searches, and provides access to figures and tables that can be downloaded to PowerPoint®.
