Handbook of Botulinum Toxin Treatment, 2nd Edition
January 2003, Wiley-Blackwell
The long-awaited second edition of the Handbook of Botulinum Toxin Treatment brings the reader up to date with the many advances in background knowledge and in clinical practice in both the established and the newer indications, including the use of a second serotype botulinum toxin B.
The book is an introduction and practical guide for doctors and paramedical staff who use botulinum toxin or who may want to refer patients or care for patients being treated elsewhere. Initial chapters provide historical and general information. The rest of the book concentrates on the different conditions treated with botulinum toxin. Chapters follow a standard format with a pragmatic approach based on the wide experience of the authors.
