    In training to become a neurosurgeon, many of the crucial manual skills that must be acquired can only be mastered through growing experience during the rigorous and lengthy training process. Yet, many - often essential - practical skills can quickly be learned, practiced, and even mastered, away from the OR.

    The author's motivation for writing this guide arose during his own training and his need for just such a practical aid. Getting Ready for Brain Surgery provides the readers with a basic set of exercises that will allow him to develop and improve their motor skills, handling of various tissues, and general technical competence. Detailed instructions are given in the illustrated text and in accompanying videos.

    Topics include:

    • Planning: visualization of the procedure
    • The craniotomy - using a coconut
    • Working with the microscope
    • Removing a gyrus: subapial resection
    • Removing a brain tumor using an artificial model
    • Microsurgical training: the chicken wing model

    Junior neurosurgical residents and interns will benefit greatly from this handy guide.

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Explained
    by Fargen
    La comanda in aproximativ 4 saptamani
    170.00 lei



    This book provides a valuable guide to understanding idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), which is a very complex and painful disease. It is a chronic, often disabling condition resulting in headaches, visual loss, and ringing in the ears. This condition was thought to be rare but is becoming much more common, especially as the population becomes more overweight. Patients with this condition often suffer from intractable headaches with poor quality of life.  Very few physicians specialize in this condition, and as a result, there is almost no information or resources available to those trying to understand this condition. The text is designed to take very complex neurosurgical anatomy, principles, and treatments and reduce them down into simple principles. The book contains 12 chapters, each organized into distinct sections. All chapters also contain key points from those paragraphs to summarize useful take home messages. Written by an expert specializing in this debilitating condition, Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Explained serves as a valuable guide towards understanding and treating IIH. The ultimate goal is to empower patients and families with knowledge about the disease.

    Endoscopic third ventriculostomy is the most widely performed neuroendoscopic procedure around the world. Several scientific papers appear in the scientific literature every month, with an increasing number, given the great interest neuroendoscopy has aroused as well as controversies about certain aspects of endoscopic third ventriculostomy. With this reasoning, the goal of this book is to be a reference in the revision of classic concepts and scientifically proven aspects about the indications and techniques of endoscopic third ventriculostomy, as well as new neuroendoscopic tendencies. 

    The book is structured in 2 parts and into 7 chapters. Part I – Classic Concepts – comprises the first 2 chapters, covering general aspects of neuroendoscopy such as historical notes, endoscopic anatomy and ventricular system physiology. Part II – State-of-the-Art – comprises chapters 3 to 7. From chapters 3 to 6 the book will discuss general principles of endoscopic ventricular technique and the applications of endoscopic third ventriculostomy in different age groups, and its association to choroid plexus coagulation. Chapter 7 deals with alternative ways of communicating the ventricular system with the cisterns of the subarachnoid space. All chapters are richly illustrated with high resolution images; there are links to online access to demonstrative surgical videos. 

    Designed for neurosurgeons at every level, the book will be unique in the market, as there is no similar book in the current scientific literature that specifically discusses endoscopic third ventriculostomy in its broadest sense.

    Pocket-size, user-friendly roadmap outlines most common surgical procedures in neurosurgery!

    Surgery requires a combination of knowledge and skill acquired through years of direct observation, mentorship, and practice. The learning curve can be steep, frustrating, and intimidating for many medical students and junior residents. Too often, books and texts that attempt to translate the art of surgery are far too comprehensive for this audience and counterproductive to learning important basic skills to succeed. Neurosurgery Outlines by neurosurgeon Paul E. Kaloostian is the neuro-surgical volume in the Surgical Outlines series of textbooks that offer a simplified roadmap to surgery.

    This unique resource outlines key steps for common surgeries, laying a solid foundation of basic knowledge from which trainees can easily build and expand. The text serves as a starting point for learning neurosurgical techniques, with room for adding notes, details, and pearls collected during the journey. The chapters are systematically organized and formatted by subspecialty, encompassing spine, radiosurgery, brain tumors and vascular lesions, head trauma, functional neurosurgery, epilepsy, pain, and hydrocephalus. Each chapter includes symptoms and signs, surgical pathology, diagnostic modalities, differential diagnosis, treatment options, indications for surgical intervention, step-by-step procedures, pitfalls, prognosis, and references where applicable.

    Key Features:

    Provides quick procedural outlines essential for understanding procedures and assisting attending neurosurgeons during rounds

    Spine procedures organized by cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral, and coccyx regions cover traumatic, elective, and tumor/vascular-related interventions

    Cranial topics include lesion resection for brain tumors and cerebrovascular disease and TBI treatment

    This is an ideal, easy-to-read resource for medical students and junior residents to utilize during the one-month neurosurgery rotations and for quick consultation during the early years of neurosurgical practice. It will also benefit operating room nurses who need a quick guide on core neurosurgical procedures.

    Emerging as a new sub-specialization within the hospitalist community, the neurosurgery hospitalist provides preoperative risk stratification, advises on managing pre- and postoperative complications, and helps doctors make decisions about when to involve specialists other than neurosurgeons. This collaborative approach to the neurosurgery patient has been shown to offer effective care since hospitalists can be better attuned than specialists to multiple medical problems that most patients have. Medical Management of Neurosurgical Patients is a first of its kind textbook providing a standardized source of information for neurosurgery hospitalists in order to establish a common ground and improve their knowledge and training. The work will focus on management of CNS infections, management of bleeding in the context of CNS surgery (a potentially catastrophic complication), management of sodium and blood glucose levels including steroid-induced hyperglycemia, perioperative pain control, and management of pressure injuries and rehabilitation in the context of CNS injury.

    Unsustainable healthcare costs and sophisticated predictive modeling based on large-scale medical data is rapidly changing models of healthcare delivery. The shift towards a value-based, consumer-driven industry has created an urgent need for validated tools to increase cost efficiency, reduce rates of adverse events, and improve patient outcomes. Value-based approaches to spine care will be presented, highlighting models for the future. These approaches stress cost effectiveness and sustainable approaches to spinal disease, where quality and safety are paramount.   Beginning with a review of current trends in health care delivery leading to more value-based platforms, the discussion then focuses on how modern spine care is being shaped by the aging population, scientific and technological advancements, and the economic impact of various treatment modalities, providing insight into the seminal efforts surrounding sustainable spine care guideline development. The over-utilization of spine fusion surgery and adult spinal deformity are presented as examples that have led to a decline in the value of care delivered, as well as how a multidisciplinary evaluation by the range of clinicians involved in spine surgery can revise recommendations for management. The benefits and risks of LEAN methodology for streamlining and standardizing spine care approaches are discussed, and the specific approach of the Seattle Spine Team is presented as an example of successful system-wide improvement. Similar changes to outcome measurement, specifically for adult spinal deformity, are described. Last, the future of technology in spine care is presented, including robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, and the use of biologics and biomaterials. Given the broad scope of topics covered in this book, the intended audience includes not only orthopedic and spinal surgeons, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, and medical students, residents and fellows, but also hospital CEOs, CMOs, administrators, health services researchers, and health care policymakers, consultants and strategists.

    An introductory text that transitions into a moderately advanced, case-based analysis of neurologic disorders and diseases, this book emphasizes how to simplify the process of making a neurologic diagnosis.  Medical students and residents are often intimidated by a deluge of data, perception of anatomic complexity, extensive differential diagnoses, and often have no organized structure to follow.  Diagnostic methods of general medicine are not applicable.  Indeed, neurology is a unique specialty since it requires the intermediary step of an anatomic diagnosis prior to proffering a differential diagnosis.  Yet the required knowledge of neuroanatomy need not be profound for the student or resident who will not specialize in neurology or neurosurgery.   The Neurologic Diagnosis: A Practical Bedside Approach, 2nd Edition is primarily directed to neurology and neurosurgery residents but it will be useful for medical and family practice residents who will discover that a great percentage of their patients have neurologic symptoms.  A one-month neurology rotation out of four years of medical school is not sufficient to make a cogent neurologic diagnosis. The aim of this concise, practical book -- which includes an in-depth video of how to perform a neurologic examination -- is to facilitate the process of establishing a neuroanatomic diagnosis followed by a rigorous analysis of symptoms and signs to reach a well-thought out differential diagnosis.  Focused and succinct, this book is an invaluable resource for making a lucid neurologic diagnosis.

    In recent years, rapid strides have been made in the field of Neuropathology. This has led to significant improvement in diagnosis. Emerging information on the pathology of neoplastic and non-neoplastic brain diseases has also improved diagnostic criteria and classification systems, impacting the management of patients. Essentials of Diagnostic Surgical Neuropathology is the first book on Neuropathology in India that covers the vast subject of Surgical Neuropathology in a concise, point-wise format, making reading and recapitulation easy. The main emphasis of this book is on neoplastic pathology, given the revolutionary changes which have occurred in the understanding of CNS tumors. In addition, the book also explains the pathology of non-neoplastic lesions that need surgical intervention. In current clinical practice, clinicians are increasingly dependent upon holistic histomolecular diagnosis that aids clinical decision making. Since ancillary techniques are a very important component of diagnosis and of the final integrated pathology reports, the book also includes immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnosis especially in the brain tumor section. In addition to this, the book has the following special features which, when presented in its user-friendly format, makes it an invaluable resource: High quality representative coloured photomicrographs Immunoprofile and key molecular genetic alterations Prognostic factors This book will serve as an updated reference manual in Neuropathology for neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-oncologists, neuro-radiologists and research scientists. It will also be a useful guide to Neuropathology diagnosis for surgical pathologists.

    The one-stop resource on deep brain stimulation for functional neurosurgeons!

    Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is used to modulate dysfunctional circuits in the brain with stimulation pulses applied to specific target areas of the brain. Globally, DBS procedures have been most commonly performed for Parkinson's disease and essential tremor, but there are now new and growing research efforts studying DBS for psychiatric disorders and epilepsy.

    Deep Brain Stimulation: Techniques and Practices written by the Society for Innovative Neuroscience in Neurosurgery along with Dr. William S. Anderson and distinguished experts presents the latest DBS approaches. The book begins with a history of DBS, general frame-based techniques, patient selection primarily for movement disorders, multidisciplinary collaboration, and ethical considerations. Subsequent chapters detail diverse technologies and disease-specific treatment for Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, OCD, epilepsy, major depression, Tourette syndrome, emerging psychiatric indications, and pediatric applications.

    Key highlights:

    Lead placement techniques utilizing currently available customized platforms and robotics

    Microelectrode recording and image-based direct targeting with MRI and CT to enhance lead placement

    Lesioning methods including radiofrequency, and MR-guided focused ultrasound

    Discussion of recent innovations in tractography to delineate white matter tracts in the brain and closed loop stimulation

    DBS has helped thousands of patients with intractable conditions, allowing for a programmable therapy with durable treatment effect. This remarkable guide provides the essentials for functional neurosurgeons to pursue intraoperative research opportunities in this growing subspecialty and incorporate DBS into clinical practice.

    Neuroprotection is becoming an increasingly recognized and important part of critical care and perioperative medicine. As human beings survive increasingly severe life-threatening injuries and complex surgical interventions, it has become clear that neurologic injury and dysfunction is a primary driver of long-term outcome and disability. Neuroprotection is currently under-recognized as the primary objective in promoting recovery from life-threatening injuries, illnesses, and procedures. To address this knowledge gap, Neuroprotection in Critical Care and Perioperative Medicine provides a concise review of the current state of the art of clinical care and research. Within the context of critical care, the specific topics covered will include the primary forms of brain injury on which neuroprotection research and intervention has traditionally focused, such as traumatic brain injury, cardiac arrest, acute ischemic stroke, and intracranial hemorrhage, as well as CNS injuries related to sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome, mechanical circulatory support, and premature birth. Within the context of perioperative care, the specific topics covered will include anesthetic and perioperative strategies to reduce brain injury from cardiac surgery, aortic surgery and endovascular repair, carotid endarterectomy, vascular and endovascular neurosurgery, and other major surgical procedures.

    Goodman's Neurosurgery Oral Board Review educates and prepares neurosurgery candidates who are studying for the Neurosurgery Oral Board exam, the final step prior to board certification. It also serves as a primer for the Goodman oral board course, a bi-annual course sponsored by the AANS. The book begins by initially describing the format of the oral board exam. It then examines some of the concepts and techniques in the question-answer process that forms the major premise of the oral board exam. Each chapter contains 4-7 case presentations, which are organized similarly to how oral board questions are presented, with a brief history / physical and relevant imaging studies. The authors provide detailed analysis of these cases, as well as key references for each case with the salient conclusions from each referenced paper. While there are a few books that cover the board exams, none of them are specifically designed as case-based resources for oral board exam preparation. Goodman's Neurosurgery Oral Board Review focuses specifically on the oral board exam, and has been updated for this new edition to reflect the most recent (post-2017) style board. This review is an ideal resource for neurosurgeons who are preparing for the oral board, and is also very appropriate for those who are trying to maintain competence in neurosurgery.

    Part of the Neurosurgery by Example series, this volume on functional neurosurgery presents exemplary cases in which renowned authors guide readers through the assessment and planning, decision making, surgical procedure, after care, and complication management of common and uncommon disorders. The cases explore the spectrum of clinical diversity and complexity within functional neurosurgery, including essential tremor, thalamotomy, parkinson's disease, epilepsy, dystonia, and more. Each chapter also contains 'pivot points' that illuminate changes required to manage patients in alternate or atypical situations, and pearls for accurate diagnosis, successful treatment, and effective complication management. Containing a focused review of medical evidence and expected outcomes, Functional Neurosurgery is appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about a subspecialty, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oral examination.

    ...a good starting point for those early in their neuroradiology training. For others, a study of the images and the accompanying legends is a good review of the commonly encountered aspects of CV disease. -- American Journal of Neuroradiology image-rich, information-rich compendium that serves well both a resident starting to cope with complex central nervous system vascular anatomy and pathology and the practicing radiologist in day-to-day clinical work....I enthusiastically recommend this textbook to all residents, neuroradiology fellows, and general diagnostic radiologists. -- Investigative Radiology

    Imaging plays an integral role in the diagnosis and intervention of debilitating, often fatal vascular diseases of the brain, such as ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, aneurysms, and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Written by a world renowned neuroradiologist and pioneer in the early adoption of magnetic resonance (MR) technology, Imaging of Cerebrovascular Disease is a concise yet remarkably thorough textbook that advances the reader's expertise on this subject.

    The text draws on the author's vast personal experience, case studies, and traditional educational sources, offering didactic dialogue with accompanying images. A practical clinical resource organized into six chapters, this book offers unparalleled breadth in delineating the diagnostic and treatment usages of modern imaging techniques. Chapter one sets a foundation with extensive coverage of modalities and their applications, including MR, computed tomography (CT) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Subsequent chapters cover utilization of imaging techniques specific to underlying pathologies.

    Key Features:

    • In-depth discussion of medical and neuroradiologic/neurosurgical interventions, focusing on the use of imaging prior to, during, and following treatment
    • Comprehensive text enhanced with more than 700 high-quality images
    • Detailed evaluation of normal brain anatomy, as well as gyral anatomy in brain ischemia, an important subtopic
    • Advantages, disadvantages, mortality, and morbidity of surgery (clipping) versus endovascular techniques (coiling and flow diversion) for aneurysms

    Presented in a style that facilitates cover-to-cover reading, this is an essential tool for residents and fellows, and provides a robust study guide prior to sitting for relevant certification exams. It is also a quick, invaluable reference for radiologists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists in the midst of a busy clinical day.
