     The concepts behind diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) are commonly difficult to grasp, even for magnetic resonance physicists. To make matters worse, a many more complex higher-order methods have been proposed over the last few years to overcome the now well-known deficiencies of DTI. In Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging: And Higher Order Models, these concepts are explained through extensive use of illustrations rather than equations to help readers gain a more intuitive understanding of the inner workings of these techniques. Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of DTI images and tractography results, the design of experiments, and the types of application studies that can be undertaken. Diffusion MRI is a very active field of research, and theories and techniques are constantly evolving. To make sense of this constantly shifting landscape, there is a need for a textbook that explains the concepts behind how these techniques work in a way that is easy and intuitive to understand―Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging fills this gap.

    Extensive use of illustrations to explain the concepts of diffusion tensor imaging and related methods

    Easy to understand, even without a background in physics

    Includes sections on image interpretation, experimental design, and applications

    World-renowned experts share the latest updates in translational research as well as surgical and nonsurgical strategies for treating spinal cord injury

    Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating, clinically challenging injury, leading to varying degrees of neurological function impairment and paralysis. Underlying biological mechanisms either inhibit or promote new growth in the spinal cord. Researchers have been making important discoveries about how neurons and their axons grow in the central nervous system and why they fail to regenerate after SCI. Although progress has been steady, there remains an urgent need to address issues in acute management such as early decompression and the use of biologics, as well as potential solutions for regeneration.

    Written by renowned experts in the ever-evolving field of SCI research and clinical practice, the 7th volume in the AOSpine Masters series is a state-of-the-art compendium on the latest in SCI diagnosis, spine surgery interventions, and long-term management. Each chapter contains pearls from leading spine specialists gleaned from the research laboratory and years of hands-on experience treating SCI patients in the emergency setting and long term.

    Key Features:

    • Pathobiology, assessment, and diagnostic considerations
    • The use of biomarkers as predictors of functional recovery
    • Surgical and nonsurgical interventions for traumatic SCI
    • The role of neural stem cells and biologics in spinal cord repair
    • Functional and epidural stimulation and brain-computer interfaces

    The AOSpine Masters series, a copublication of Thieme and the AOSpine Foundation, addresses current clinical issues featuring international masters sharing their expertise in the core areas in the field. The goal of the series is to contribute to an evolving, dynamic model of evidence-based approach to spine care.

    This essential textbook delivers invaluable insights to spine surgeons, spinal cord injury clinicians and researchers and trainees, from translational researchers to experienced researchers and clinicians experienced in the operative and non-operative management of spinal cord injury.

    While most spine deformities such as scoliosis, kyphosis, and lordosis are idiopathic, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, spinal cord tumors and lesions are associated with more severe curve progression. Bracing typically does not prevent progression of spinal curves, and surgery is necessary for these patients. Neuromuscular Spine Deformity by Amer F. Samdani et al is the most comprehensive book on this topic to date, detailing the latest surgical techniques for a wide range of common to rare neuromuscular pathologies, in 27 well-illustrated chapters.

    The comprehensive content derives from the authors' collective years of hands-on expertise, evidence-based knowledge from the literature, and multicenter scoliosis studies performed by the prestigious Harms Study Group, a worldwide research-based association of spine surgeons. The text begins with discussion of preoperative evaluation, nonoperative management, and surgical considerations such as anesthesia, neuromonitoring, and estimated blood loss. Section two highlights pathology-specific surgical interventions, while sections three and four provide clinical pearls on a wide array of surgical techniques, complications, and patient outcomes.

    Key Highlights

    • Disease-related challenges including dislocated hips, hyperlordotic/hyperkyphotic spine in cerebral palsy, myelomeningocele-related myelodysplasia and spine deformity, Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, and spinal muscular atrophy
    • Guidance on assessing the sagittal profile preoperatively and executing it intraoperatively in patients with spinal cord injury
    • Multiple options for fixation including the new sacral alar iliac screw approach for sacropelvic fixation and correction of pelvic obliquity
    • Postoperative issues including ICU management, incidence and management of early and late wound infection, instrumentation failure, junctional kyphosis, and cervical extension
    • Health-related quality of life outcomes in pediatric patients with cerebral palsy who have undergone scoliosis surgery

    This state-of-the-art resource is essential reading for orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and trainees in these specialties. It is also a must-have reference for academic programs and institutional departments specializing in pediatric spine pathologies.

     Migraine surgery is the only existing treatment option that can lead to a permanent symptomatic improvement. Surgical techniques and advances in the understanding of the underlying mechanisms are evolving rapidly. This book intends to familiarise surgeons with the concept of migraine headaches and explains the surgical deactivation of trigger sites, which consists of much more than the decompression of pericranial nerves. The traditional notion of the brain as the sole origin of migraine is supplanted by a concept where the alteration of afferent signals in conjunction with peripheral and central sensitization can trigger a migraine attack. Migraine surgery targets the crucial role of extracranial tissues in the genesis of migraine which is corroborated by substantial clinical, anatomical and pathophysiological evidence.

    This sequel to Dr. Lawton's best-selling Seven Aneurysms focuses on microsurgical resection techniques for AVMs found in the lobes and deep regions of the brain. It categorizes the techniques into subtypes to simplify the broad spectrum of brain AVMs neurosurgeons may encounter. The book is organized into three sections: The Tenets, which establishes eight steps for AVM resection; The Seven Arteriovenous Malformations, which describes the anatomical terrain and surgical strategies for thirty-two AVM subtypes; and The Selection section, in which Dr. Lawton discusses what he believes to be the keys to successful AVM surgery: good patient selection and best application of multiple treatment modalities.

    Key Features:

    • Includes more than 700 spectacular full-color illustrations developed exclusively for this book
    • Creates a system for conceptualizing and approaching AVMs
    • Illustrates a stepwise process for AVM resection using strategic "battle plans"

    A unique resource on glioma leverages advances and firsthand insights to enact meaningful change

    Glioblastoma (GBM) or glioma is an extremely aggressive and malignant brain tumor, with cell infiltration, rapid invasion, and a high frequency of relapse. The Glioma Book by neurosurgeon Michael Sughrue is a highly personal book — a culmination of two years of writing and more than 1,000 surgeries. It presents a unique viewpoint with the potential to transform the traditional paradigm that too often informs treatment of this universally fatal brain tumor. The book reinterprets the role of the cerebrum and sub-cortex, leverages scientific advances to improve cytoreduction and reduce neurological deficits, and challenges the myth of the "inoperable" glioma.

    This is the first step-by-step technical guide focused on aggressively resecting different types of gliomas. The book is logically organized, starting with a foundation of fundamental knowledge, then progressing to practical applications. Chapters focus on the skills necessary to perform glioma surgery, specific techniques, and systematic approaches to gliomas in different brain regions.

    ·         Numerous case examples illuminate concepts introduced earlier in the book and explain how to perform these procedures

    ·         About 30 high quality videos posted online provide insightful procedural guidance

    ·         The role of connectomic imaging in visualizing the cerebrum, and other innovative techniques including awake brain mapping and diffusion tensor tractography

    Neurosurgeons who embrace the concepts in this book will realize they can change the glioma treatment paradigm. Continually improving techniques and viewing a glioma diagnosis as a battle for a patient's life, rather than an exercise in inevitable failure can impart progress in treating this devastating disease.

    With detailed contributions from more than 80 renowned international authors, Advanced Craniomaxillofacial Surgery significantly builds on the solid foundation laid by the previous textbook. The new book comprises sophisticated techniques in skeletal and soft-tissue analysis for the disciplines of craniomaxillofacial, trauma, tumor, orthognathic surgery, as well as facial and esthetic surgery.

    The focused expertise of seven disciplines is synthesized together to offer comprehensive and unique interdisciplinary perspectives, necessary to create the "team" approach fundamental to achieving the progress required and expected in high-level medical centers: oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, oculoplastic surgery, and head and neck surgery. Nowhere else has there been such a thorough and comprehensive multispecialty approach presented in the head and neck region.

    The advent of microvascular surgery, skeletal analysis, computerized surgical planning, personalized implant creation, and comprehensive radiographic analysis have given rise to new principles, techniques and possibilities, which are explored extensively in this new textbook. Advanced Craniomaxillofacial Surgery should be part of every surgeon's library.

    Unique skull-base surgical resource features strategic, technical, and philosophical pearls from master surgeons In a sense, surgeons go into battle every time they enter the OR. Like soldiers, they must be prepared to make profound sacrifices to protect innocent people (their patients), while putting egos aside and resisting the call of fame. Skull Base Surgery: Strategies by Walter Jean and distinguished contributors provides eloquent expression to the inner voices that speak to surgeons during each stage of battle. Unlike other textbooks that only emphasize the technical building blocks surgeons need, this resource focuses on state-of-the-art skull-base procedures, important thought processes, and vital strategies required to perform them. Size and shape variations, diverse biological characteristics, different anatomic locations and extensions, and specific relationships and entanglements with nerves and vessels make all skull base tumors unique and highly challenging. In addition to anatomy, two other important factors need to be considered every time a surgeon enters the OR ? the particular circumstances of the patient and surgeon. Throughout this remarkable book, master neurosurgeons take readers on an insightful journey exploring the decision-making process of choosing and executing a surgical approach, with firsthand pearls from the battlefield.
