This is an unheard of publication on endoscopic pituitary surgical procedure that are supposed to be in significant neurosurgical, neurological, and clinical libraries. -- Doody's Review
Offering the original twin point of view of neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists, Endoscopic Pituitary surgical procedure: Endocrine, Neuro-Ophthalmologic and Surgical Management describes either state of the art endoscopic innovations and tried-and-true decision-making methodologies that bring about the main profitable results. From selecting the right surgical or non-surgical process for person sufferers, to handling complicated endocrine and neuro-ophthalmologic matters, this can be the 1st significant reference within the box in approximately a decade, making it the go-to advisor for all interdisciplinary experts who deal with pituitary tumors.
- Step-by-step descriptions of the latest endoscopic pituitary and cranium base methods, making sure that experts have complete mastery of strategies for various tumor forms during this surgically hard quarter
- The medical knowledge and views of the masters of pituitary surgical procedure, who percentage insights on sufferer choice, endoscopic as opposed to open approaches, clinical administration, and lots more and plenty extra
- Operative pearls from either neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists
- Compelling discussions of the professionals and cons of assorted approaches (e.g., the software of intraoperative MRI in pituitary surgical procedure circumstances)
- Inclusion of detail-revealing 3D endoscopic photos (complete with 3D glasses)
- Rationale for a collaborative neurosurgery--otolaryngology group method of constructing and enforcing the main leading edge endoscopic and cranium base techniques
Enhanced by way of 1000's of pictures, decision-making algorithms, and medical pearls from specialists on every one tumor variety, Endoscopic Pituitary Surgery is a entire consultant representing the present palette of accessible treatment plans. it's critical for citizens in education in addition to for training neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists who're making the transition to the most recent minimally invasive endoscopic systems within the remedy of pituitary lesions.

Best neurosurgery books
This can be one of many first books to house imaging of pathology of the total visible method. it really is divided into elements, basic and exact. within the basic half, crucial fundamentals of recent imaging equipment are mentioned, yet with much less emphasis at the actual historical past than in in simple terms neuro-/radiological textbooks.
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. cutting-edge fMRI approaches are provided, with distinctive attention of the physiological and methodological heritage, imaging and information processing, common and pathological findings, diagnostic percentages and barriers, and different similar recommendations.
The objective of this e-book is to make a hyperlink among primary examine within the box of cognitive neurosciences, which now advantages from a greater wisdom of the neural foundations of cerebral processing, and its scientific software, in particular in neurosurgery – itself capable of supply new insights into mind association.
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 offer a number of therapies -- it bargains specific entry to insights from famous backbone specialists and a considerate but functional overview of the main proper literature and scientific facts on hand within the box this present day.
