Die zwolfte Auflage des beliebten Standardwerks bietet den neuesten Stand der klinischen und apparativen Diagnostik, der Pathophysiologie und der konservativen sowie der interventionellen Therapie. Das Lehrbuch besticht durch ein ebenso ansprechendes wie didaktisch ausgefeiltes Layout. Der flussig und verstandlich geschriebene Text der renommierten Autoren bringt auch komplexe Zusammenhange auf den Punkt. Pointierte Einleitungen, anschauliche Fallberichte, viele Merksatze sowie strukturierte Kapitelzusammenfassungen erleichtern das Lernen und bieten intensive Orientierung. Besonderer Pluspunkt: Facharztwissen und Leitlinien der DGN in Boxen herausgestellt. Wer uber den Tellerrand der MC-Prufungen hinausblicken und sich fundierte Kenntnisse der Neurologie aneignen mochte, ist mit diesem Lehrbuch gut beraten. Auch fur Assistenzarzte in der Facharztweiterbildung sehr geeignet.
