This should be on all our bookshelves. -- American Journal of NeuroradiologyOffers new material on new prodcedures such as awake craniotomies, brain mapping, and endovascular techniques, and reveals the latest understanding of conditions such as dural arteriovenous malformations and new monitoring modalities.--SciTech Book NewsComprehensive and conveniently compact, this book is a must-have reference for neurosurgery...and a useful tool for anyone working in the clinical neurosciences...Superb and...up to date. -- Doody'sPraise for the previous edition: Jam-packed with information vital to every practicing neuroradiologist. It serves best to tuck this paperback book into a laboratory coat, so that quick consultation on patient evaluation, clinical management, and surgical approach is readily at hand...a comprehensive companion for all those in the clinical neurosciences.--American Journal of NeuroradiologyThe "Handbook of Neurosurgery" has been a kind of bible for neurosurgical residents. This book is an invaluable companion for the neurosurgical resident from internship through completion. It is a reference for quick up-to-date information on anatomical and physiological facts, differential diagnosis, and currently accepted principles of clinical management. The sixth edition has new features that distinguish it from prior editions. The most important of these is the incorporation of the concepts of evidence-based medicine. ..Highlighted areas...signal a condensed summary, key point, or clinical pearl...very helpful for quick reference. This new edition is the best there is for quick referencing. Its broad, yet detailed coverage of the most commonly encountered neurosurgical problems makes this book keep the title's promise--this is truly a handbook of neurosurgery. The "Handbook of Neurosurgery" is a must-have for all neurosurgical resident.--Journal of NeurosurgeryUp-to-date.. The information is presented in a very clear, condensed and comprehensive manner and can therfore be understood quickly if necessary. This handbook is a good must buy for every neurosurgeon, not only the resident, because it helps us to have a quick and reliable reference, especially in cases that we usually do not treat in our daily routine.--Neurosurgical Review
