As an addition to the ecu postgraduate education procedure for younger neurosurgeons we started to put up in 1974 this sequence dedicated to Advances and Technical criteria in Neurosurgery which used to be later subsidized via the Euro­ pean organization of Neurosurgical Societies. the truth that the English language is easily that allows you to changing into the foreign medium at ecu medical meetings is a brilliant asset by way of mutual knowing. hence we have now determined to post all contributions in English, whatever the local language of the authors. All contributions are submitted to the full editorial board sooner than ebook of any quantity. Our sequence isn't really meant to compete with the courses of unique medical papers in different neurosurgical journals. Our purpose is, quite, to offer fields of neurosurgery and comparable parts during which very important fresh advances were made. The contributions are written via experts within the given fields and represent the 1st a part of every one quantity. within the moment a part of each one quantity, we put up designated descriptions of normal operative strategies, offered via skilled clinicians; in those articles the authors describe the concepts they hire and clarify the benefits, problems and dangers all in favour of many of the tactics. This half is meant essentially to help younger neurosurgeons of their postgraduate education. even though, we're confident that it'll even be invaluable to skilled, totally proficient neurosurgeons.

Imaging of orbital and visual pathway pathology

This can be one of many first books to accommodate imaging of pathology of the whole visible method. it's divided into components, basic and detailed. within the normal half, crucial fundamentals of recent imaging tools are mentioned, yet with much less emphasis at the actual historical past than in merely neuro-/radiological textbooks.

Clinical Functional MRI: Presurgical Functional Neuroimaging (Medical Radiology Diagnostic Imaging)

This can be the 1st textbook on medical fMRI. it truly is dedicated to preoperative fMRI in sufferers with mind tumors and epilepsies, that are the main well-established medical functions. state of the art fMRI methods are offered, with targeted attention of the physiological and methodological historical past, imaging and information processing, common and pathological findings, diagnostic probabilities and barriers, and different comparable ideas.

Brain Mapping: From Neural Basis of Cognition to Surgical Applications

The aim of this e-book is to make a hyperlink among basic study within the box of cognitive neurosciences, which now advantages from a greater wisdom of the neural foundations of cerebral processing, and its medical program, specially in neurosurgery – itself capable of offer new insights into mind association.

Spine and spinal cord trauma: evidence-based management

Representing the collective efforts of a multinational, multidisciplinary panel of backbone and spinal twine trauma masters, this superbly illustrated evidence-based textbook does greater than supply a number of cures -- it deals targeted entry to insights from famous backbone specialists and a considerate but functional overview of the main proper literature and medical proof to be had within the box this present day.

Sample text

A significant improvement in hearing function after removal of a cerebellopontine angle meningioma was noted by de Martel et al. in 1936, and many surgeons including ourselves have since observed this phenomenon, which rarely if ever occurs after excision of an acoustic neurinoma. Evoked Response with Cerebellopontine Angle Masses The auditory evoked response in the presence of cerebellopontine angle masses has been described by several authors (Shimizu 1968, Terkildsen et al. 1977, Selters and Brackmann 1977, 1979).

This includes the knowledge Fig. 11a. ) Displacement of basilar artery and branches of a cerebellopontine angle meningioma , .....

5 cm parallel to the petrous ridge. The cut tentorial edges are sutured out of the way. The trigeminal nerve and the medially displaced distal superior cerebellar artery can be freed of tumor. The tumor mass in the cerebellopontine angle is superficially coagulated and then hollowed out. As this is done the lobulus quadrangularis of the cerebellum and medial superior cerebellopontine angle are freed of tumor. The inferiorly displaced VII -VIII nerve group is usually easily separated from the tumor, as is VI, and eventually even IX and X.
