Description

This is a clear, incisive introduction to neurosurgery. It is designed for the medical student learning about neurosurgery, the neurological or surgical resident who is rotating on neurosurgery, the practicing neurologist, internist or general surgeon who wants a succinct introduction to neurosurgery, and the neurosurgical trainee in his or her early years. The book's emphasis is on the diagnosis and management of common neurosurgical disorders. It covers in a concise, practical fashion the emergency, elective, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that neurosurgeons use. The text is divided into four sections. The first section deals with neurosurgical diagnosis and includes chapters on radiographic and physiological diagnostic modalities. The next section focuses on management decisions including a detailed discussion of neurosurgical emergencies. The third part describes common neurosurgical disorders such as trauma, tumors, cerebrovascular diseases, infections, CSF abnormalities and degenerative spinal disorders. The last section summarizes several special topics in neurosurgery, including pediatric neurosurgery and stereotactic and functional neurosurgery.show more
