"At Vertigo 42, a bar high above London's financial district, Richard Jury meets Tom Williamson - a friend of a friend who is convinced his wife, Tess, was murdered 17 years ago. Tess's death was ruled accidental - a fall caused by vertigo - but Jury agrees to re-examine the case. A young girl's fatal fall at a children's party 22 years ago at Tom and Tess's home may be connected. After an elegantly dressed woman falls from a tower near a pub that Jury and his cronies frequent, and her estranged husband is later found dead, Jury begins to suspect that the now grown "children" from Tess's ill-fated party are the key to solving these interwoven mysteries"--

Richard Jury, célèbre commissaire de New Scotland Yard, rencontre, par l'intermédiaire d'un ami commun, Tom Williamson. Ce dernier le supplie de rouvrir un vieux dossier : celui de son épouse, Tess, découverte sans vie, seize ans plus tôt, au pied de l'escalier de leur manoir du Devon. A l'époque, la police avait conclu à un vertige ayant entraîné sa chute. Cependant, Williamson est intimement persuadé qu'elle a été assassinée et qu'un lien doit être fait avec le décès d'une petite fille, survenu dans leur jardin quelques années auparavant... Ce jour-là, cinq autres enfants du voisinage étaient présents. Mais, alors que Jury tente de les retrouver pour reconstituer les faits, deux meurtres ont lieu quasi simultanément dans la région. Toutes ces morts, si éloignées soient-elles dans le temps, seraient-elles liées ? Au terme d'une enquête qui emprunte autant à l'art des faux-semblants d'Hitchcock qu'aux romans moraux de Thomas Hardy, Jury se distingue une nouvelle fois avec brio. Martha Grimes est l'auteur de nombreux romans acclamés par la critique, best-sellers mettant en scène le commissaire Jury.

Vertigo and dizziness rate among the most frequently occurring presenting complaints in neurology and in general medical practice. Since most patients do not have acute complaints at the time of examination, the clinician requires keen judgment in making a diagnosis, as patients often report confusing, real, or hypothetical causes of their problems. An improvement in the scientific understanding of vestibular physiology in recent years has led to the development of new diagnostic tests and more effective therapies. However, many of these advances have been slow to be adopted into routine clinical practice. Part of the Oxford Neurology Library (ONL) series, Vertigo and Dizziness helps clinicians improve their management of patients with these conditions. The text provides an overview of clinical vestibular physiology as well as of the latest developments in bedside examination, diagnosis/differential diagnosis, and state-of-the-art therapy. Vertigo and Dizziness serves as an essential clinical guide for neurologists, otorhinolaryngologists, and trainees in those disciplines, and for general practitioners and medical students.

This monograph has been written for clinicians who are involved in the management of the dizzy patient and for scientists with a particular interest in the multi-sensorimotor mechan isms that subserve spatial orientation, motion perception, and ocular motor and postural con trol. Special emphasis has been put on making the correct diagnosis, and detailed recommendations have been given for specific treatments. The second edition has resulted in an almost completely new book due to the dramatic expansion in the 1990s of our understanding of vestibular function and dis orders. A few rele vant examples include the novel concept of canalolithiasis, as opposed to cupulolithiasis, both of which are established causes of typical posterior and horizontal canal benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo; familial episodic ataxia land II have been identified as inherited chan nelopathies; otolithic syndromes were recognized as a variety separate from semicircular canal syndromes; several new central vestibular syndromes have been described, localized, and attributed to vestibular pathways and centres; a new classification based on the three major planes of action of the vestibulo-ocular reflex is available for central vestibular syn dromes; and the mystery of the location and function of the multisensory vestibular cortex is slowly being unravelled. This book differs from other clinical textbooks in that it is not divided into two parts: anatomy and physiology, on the one hand, and disorders, on the other.

Vertigo And Dizziness Across The Lifespan An Issue Of Otolaryngologic Clinics E Book

Dizziness comes in many forms in each age group – some specific to an age group (e.g. benign paroxysmal vertigo of childhood) while others span the age spectrum (e.g., migraine-associated vertigo). This content organizes evaluation and management of the dizzy patient by age to bring a fresh perspective to seeing these often difficult patients. The pediatric section begins with a review of vestibular embryology and physiology and moves toward a comprehensive discussion of methods – both bedside and in the vestibular lab - to evaluate the child with dizziness, or “clumsiness,” concluding with an exploration of the differential diagnosis of dizziness and relevant findings. Dizziness in the adolescent points to migraine headache as a common cause, enumerates treatment strategies for migraine-associated vertigo, and offers guidelines for when to image the adolescent with dizziness. Adult dizziness is more a compilation of the relevant diagnoses, but the section starts with dizziness that can affect young adults – especially members of our Armed Forces fighting overseas – traumatic brain injury/blast injury. This content also has relevance for patients in motor vehicle accidents and head injury patients. Medicolegal aspects of evaluation and management of dizzy patients are succinctly covered in “Evaluation of Dizziness in the Litigating Patient.” The final chapter in this section, “Other Causes of Dizziness,” provides a very thorough overview of unusual causes of dizziness in the adult population. Dizziness associated with advancing age is quite common and often multifactorial, as is highlighted in the chapter “Dizziness in the Elderly.” A comprehensive review of the posterior cerebral circulation, transient ischemic attacks, and posterior circulation stroke is presented in the chapter, “Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency.” No coverage of dizziness in the elderly is complete without an exposition of polypharmacy and medication effects. Other common diagnoses of dizziness in the elderly are thoughtfully reviewed along with a survey of new and old techniques to rehabilitate the older patient with dizziness or disequilibrium. Patients presenting with dizziness can harbor serious, if not life-threatening, conditions such as stroke, brain abscess, or severe chronic ear disease. At the end of several articles, the reader will find a relevant table – What Not To Miss – a list of clinically significant signs and symptoms not to ignore, or conditions (differential diagnosis) that may masquerade as that discussed in the chapter but critically important that the practitioner should not overlook in the evaluation of the patient. Many articles in this edition start with a clinical scenario so the reader can recognize common presenting symptoms, demographic features, and factors in the medical history that will aid in making the diagnosis.

Common vestibulocochlear disorders presenting with vertigo contributes significantly to morbidity and mortality. The challenge is to identify the underlying cause of dizziness so as to streamline the treatment and improve quality of life. In day-to-day ENT practice, incidence of dizziness is reported to be 10–15%. It is often associated with a range of otological, neurological and psychiatric disorders. There are fewer subjects in medicine which keep us more confused than vertigo. Dizziness and vertigo may be disturbing and incapacitating causing problems to people doing regular or specialized tasks such as driving, operating heavy machinery or flying. As the sensations are hard to describe, patients often use the words "dizziness" and "Vertigo" interchangeably and inconsistently. Patients with the same underlying disorder might describe the symptoms very differently and might also differently describe the same "dizzy" event depending upon how the question is directed. The aim of this book is to explore the experience and learning of some of the eminent medical professionals, develop relevant updates, and make them easily available for utilization by the Indian clinical practitioners.
