About this book


This book provides coverage of a broad range of topics in the ?eld of neurosurgery, 5 for residents and registrars in training and for recent graduates of training programs. 6 As neurosurgical training incorporates expertise from centers worldwide, there is a 7 need to have input from specialists in neurosurgery from various countries. This text 8 is a compilation by expert authors in the USA and the UK to provide information on 9 the basic knowledge and clinical management required for optimal care of neuro- 2011 surgical patients. 1 The text is an up-to-date synopsis of the ?eld of neurosurgery from American and 2 British perspectives, which covers the most common clinical conditions encountered 3 by neurosurgeons. The chapters are organized under broad topics, including inves- 4 tigative studies, perioperative care, the role of newer techniques and the management 5 of tumors, vascular and traumatic lesions. Additional topics are then covered, includ- 6 ing pediatrics, spine and peripheral nerve lesions, as well as functional neurosurgery 7 and infections. We anticipate that trainees will ?nd this information useful for certi?- 8 cation examinations and recent graduates of neurosurgical training programs can 9 utilize this text as an update of the most important neurosurgical topics.

From the reviews:

"The book … gives an up-to-date synopsis of the field of neurosurgery from American and British perspectives. … It covers the most common clinical conditions encountered by neurosurgeons. It is dedicated to trainees or recent graduates in Neurosurgery but the quality of text provides important informations to senior neurosurgeons … . The book with a high quality text and excellent illustrations is quite classical … . it represents an excellent manual for learning the basis of neurosurgery and should be recommended … ." (Prof. Didier Martin, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Vol. 105 (5), 2006)
