Principles of Neurological Surgery is in its third edition because of the popular demand of our students. As I walk through the hospital and operating room, I am thrilled to see the previous editions being read by medical students, house oficers, nurses, and practicing neurosurgeons. It is for these treasured students, young and old, novice and experienced, that this book is intended. It is to be used to guide both those learning and those teaching. We are indebted to our students for inspiring us to perform at our best every day, for in the operating room our best is required by our patients all the time. At the end of the day, we hope this edition contributes to the modest goal of shaping more effective clinicians, ultimately for the beneit of our patients.
ImageGuided Neurosurgery provides readers with an update on the revolutionary improvements in imaging and visualization relating to neurosurgery. From the development of the pneumoencephalogram, to the operating microscope, to cross sectional imaging with CT and later MRI, to stereotaxy and neuronavigation, the ability to visualize the pathology and surrounding neural structures has been the driving factor leading surgical innovation and improved outcomes.
Brain Injury: Applications from War and Terrorism is a singleauthored book written by a worldclass neuroradiologist with extensive experience in traumatic brain injury (TBI). It features six graphicintense chapters depicting and expounding upon the complexity of TBI. Culled from nearly three decades of studying civilian TBI and five years of intensive study of TBI sustained from combat, terrorism, and natural disasters, this work is an exhaustive and innovative authority on the current approaches and applications of civilian and combat TBI. The text is sectored into six chapters based on pathophysiology, each augmented with numerous images and illustrations. The book gives special attention to neuroimaging, but is reinforced with relevant clinical correlation.
