Description

This is a comprehensive atlas on the surgical anatomy of the cavernous sinus, with operative photographs correlating to schematic drawings and clinical practice. The book serves two functions: it gives a clear picture of the microsurgical anatomy of the cavernous sinus and surrounding areas, and describes actual surgical approaches to the area. There are hundreds of detailed human cadaver dissections that provide critical anatomic information and access routes. The 176 three-dimensional stereoscopic photographs give the depth perception needed for a complete understanding of the anatomy of the skull-base region. The clinical insights should make this a useful addition to the neurosurgeon's library. There are detailed descriptions of the microsurgical anatomy of the: cavernous sinus; internal carotid artery; the cranial nerves; venous system; petrous temporal bone; orbit; sella turcica; sphenoid sinus; foramen magnum region; infratemporal fossa; and step-wise surgical approaches to specific areas within the cavernous sinus.show more
