Publisher Description

Vascular Neurosurgery, a new volume in the second edition of the classic Neurosurgical Operative Atlas series, is an exquisitely detailed atlas of the surgical approaches to common neurovascular diseases and conditions. Chapters are divided into three main sections including aneurysms and subarachnoid hemorrhage, vascular malformations, and ischemic and other cerebrovascular diseases. In each chapter renowned experts guide the clinician step-by-step through management, providing insights into patient selection, preoperative evaluation, surgical technique, and postoperative management. Highlights: * Concise chapters arranged in a consistent format to enhance ease of use * Coverage of microsurgical techniques, minimally-invasive approaches, and endoscopy * Practical tips on patient positioning, instruments, and how to avoid and manage potential complications * More than 300 illustrations, most of them in full-color, demonstrating surgical steps Vascular Neurosurgery is a practical, how-to book for clinicians, fellows, and residents in neurosurgery and vascular surgery.
It is an ideal reference to consult in advance of performing a neurovascular procedure or to prepare for the oral board examinations. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons and Thieme have collaborated to produce the second edition of the acclaimed Neurosurgical Operative Atlas series. Edited by leading experts in the field, the series covers the entire spectrum of neurosurgery in five volumes. In addition to Vascular Neurosurgery, the series also features: *Neuro-Oncology, edited by Behnam Badie *Spine and Peripheral Nerves, edited by Christopher Wolfla and Daniel K. Resnick *Pediatric Neurosurgery, edited by James Tait Goodrich *Functional Neurosurgery, edited by Philip A. Starr, Nicholas M. Barbaro, and Paul S. Larson

Written by leaders in the field of cerebrovascular disease...[the] authors consistently provide detailed instruction on patient positioning, approach, and microsurgical techniques...augmented with copious diagrams and photographs, many of which appear in full color. Common operative pitfalls and means to avoid them are generously peppered throughout. One of the strengths of t he book is the brevity with which the authors provide an overview of operative vascular neurosurgery. Each chapter is sufficiently short that it can be carefully read in 30 minutes or less, affording time-strapped surgeons (or especially residents) the opportunity to review a disease quickly...a valuable addition to the library of any neurosurgeon who wishes to have a concise and comprehensive reference of neurovascular operative management.—AANS (American Association of Neurological Surgeons) Young Neurosurgeons' NewsletterA large amount of excellent, mostly coloured intraoperative pictures and drawings. It provides the young vascular neurosurgeon with the basic principles of these procedures, while also showing many complex cases, which can be considered challenging even in experienced hands...highly recommended.—Minimally Invasive NeurosurgeryUnique intraoperative photography...surgical approaches and...thorough references to the current literature, make this book one of a kind...many years of combined experience from world renowned cerebrovascular surgeons...a practical guide and atlas.—Doody's Review
