Summary

This second edition presents a timely and practical discussion of vagal nerve stimulation in a clear and well-illustrated format. It provides a clinical approach to the treatment of patients with medically-intractable seizures, as well as for those with depression (a new indication since the publication of first edition). The book's focus has made it successful, as it zeros in on clinically relevant findings. The new edition includes a CD-ROM with actual footage of the implantation procedure and the latest research findings of the treatment potential for depression and obesity. Vagus Nerve Stimulation gives the attending neurologist step-by-step information on this exciting method of treating epilepsy.
