By Walter Grand

master neurosurgeons carry a wealth of collective neurosurgical and
neuroendovascular event to this extraordinary reference e-book, which
melds an in depth anatomical atlas with scientific purposes. The
authors offer case stories and pearls that exhibit how anatomy
impacts medical perform judgements for aneurysm, stroke, and
skull-base disease.


  • Comprehensive diversifications of the vasculature on the Circle of Willis, cortical branches, and secondary arteries
  • Range and usual measurements of the main serious vessels
  • Hundreds of colour photos elucidate distinct anatomical cadaver dissections
  • Exquisite illustrations by means of Paul H. Dressel

richly illustrated, entire anatomical source is a needs to have
for neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and neurologists. even if you are
a training clinician or resident, examining this e-book will greatly
expand your "vision" and sharpen your perception.

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 elements, common and certain. within the basic half, crucial fundamentals of contemporary imaging tools are mentioned, yet with much less emphasis at the actual historical past than in only neuro-/radiological textbooks.

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

This can be the 1st textbook on medical fMRI. it really is dedicated to preoperative fMRI in sufferers with mind tumors and epilepsies, that are the main well-established scientific purposes. state of the art fMRI approaches are awarded, with distinct attention of the physiological and methodological history, imaging and knowledge processing, basic and pathological findings, diagnostic chances and obstacles, and different comparable strategies.

Brain Mapping: From Neural Basis of Cognition to Surgical Applications

The objective of this e-book is to make a hyperlink among primary learn within the box of cognitive neurosciences, which now merits from a greater wisdom of the neural foundations of cerebral processing, and its medical software, particularly in neurosurgery – itself capable of 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 twine trauma masters, this fantastically illustrated evidence-based textbook does greater than supply a number of remedies -- it bargains targeted entry to insights from well-known backbone specialists and a considerate but functional assessment of the main suitable literature and medical facts to be had within the box this day.

3╇ Case 3 A 12-year-old boy presented with a syncopal event and rapidly increasing right-sided facial swelling. MRI revealed a posterior, nasopharyngeal, uniformly enhancing mass with prominent flow voids extending into the maxillary sinus anteroinferiorly, the right orbit, and the ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses. Computed tomography (CT) confirmed erosion and remodeling of bone. Angiography revealed a prominent vascular supply from the terminal external carotid artery branches of the internal maxillary artery, including the middle meningeal, accessory meningeal, sphenopalatine, and ethmoidal branches.

The angular artery is an important collateralization with the ophthalmic artery distribution as an alternative retrograde blood supply to the internal carotid artery system. Close to its origin, the facial artery gives off the ascending palatine artery, which passes to the tonsils and the eustachian tube. Despite the description in many texts of a bifurcation of the external carotid artery into the superficial temporal artery and internal maxillary artery, on occasion, the external carotid artery has a major bifurcation after the facial artery, with a posterior branch becoming the occipital artery and, at times, an occipital artery–ascending pharyngeal complex.
