By Franco DeMonte, Michael W. McDermott, Ossama Al-Mefty

This is a wonderful publication and a wanted replace. For
anyone attracted to learning this particular neoplasm in depth,this ebook is
worthwhile. it's a must-have in all neurosurgery, neurology, and radiology
libraries. -- Doody's Review

Al-Mefty's Meningiomas, moment Edition is the definitive advisor to
meningioma analysis, remedy, and surgical procedure, and displays over a decade of
major advances within the prognosis and administration of either intracranial and spinal
meningiomas because the first variation used to be published.


  • New to this variation: info on molecular
    biology, traditional historical past and development premiums, the increase of radiosurgery as a
    manageable remedy choice, and masses extra

  • Over 500 high quality radiographic photos and
    full-color illustrations exhibit anatomy and surgical procedure

  • In-depth assurance of intraoperative MRI and
    endoscopic resection

  • Key subject matters usually lacking from different meningiomas texts together with caseload administration, and postoperative caliber of existence issues

This landmark reference will improve the precision and surgical abilities of each clinician or resident in neurosurgery or neurology.

Imaging of orbital and visual pathway pathology

This can be one of many first books to accommodate imaging of pathology of the total visible process. it really is divided into components, normal and particular. within the basic half, an important fundamentals of contemporary imaging equipment are mentioned, yet with much less emphasis at the actual history than in basically neuro-/radiological textbooks.

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

This is often the 1st textbook on scientific fMRI. it really is dedicated to preoperative fMRI in sufferers with mind tumors and epilepsies, that are the main well-established medical purposes. cutting-edge fMRI systems are offered, with designated attention of the physiological and methodological historical past, imaging and information processing, basic and pathological findings, diagnostic probabilities and barriers, and different similar concepts.

Brain Mapping: From Neural Basis of Cognition to Surgical Applications

The target of this booklet 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 scientific program, particularly in neurosurgery – itself in a position to supply 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 wire trauma masters, this fantastically illustrated evidence-based textbook does greater than supply a number of remedies -- it deals precise entry to insights from famous backbone specialists and a considerate but sensible evaluation of the main appropriate literature and medical facts to be had within the box this day.

The tenacity of the dura mater stems from its composition of elongated fibroblasts and extensive amounts of extracellular collagen (Fig. 1). The varying orientations of fibers create a matrix of intertwining collagen that provides significant strength. The outer periosteal layer of dura is generally thicker, with more abundant collagen, than the inner meningeal layer. indd 26 Located at the dura–arachnoid junction, a distinct cell population termed the dural border cells has been described. 6,7 Instead, the extracellular spaces are filled with irregular cellular processes and an amorphous, nonfilamentous granular material.

7 Arachnoid trabecular cells are specialized fibroblasts with long processes and attachment to the arachnoid barrier layer. They bridge the subarachnoid space with their long, flattened, irregular processes and may form cellular attachments with pial cells. 7,9 Fig. 1 Schematic illustration of the fine structure of the meninges. D. Anderson Cancer Center. 7 Historically, the existence of a subdural space has been advocated as a naturally occurring space, or potential space similar to those found in serous cavities such as pleural, pericardial, or peritoneal cavities.
