anyone drawn to learning this particular neoplasm in depth,this publication is
worthwhile. it's a must-have in all neurosurgery, neurology, and radiology
libraries. -- Doody's Review
Al-Mefty's Meningiomas, moment Edition is the definitive advisor to
meningioma analysis, therapy, and surgical procedure, and displays over a decade of
major advances within the prognosis and administration of either intracranial and spinal
meningiomas because the first variation was once published.
- New to this variation: info on molecular
biology, average historical past and development charges, the increase of radiosurgery as a
conceivable therapy choice, and masses extra
- Over 500 fine quality radiographic photos and
full-color illustrations reveal anatomy and surgical procedure
- In-depth assurance of intraoperative MRI and
- Key themes frequently lacking from different meningiomas texts together with caseload administration, and postoperative caliber of lifestyles issues
This landmark reference will improve the precision and surgical abilities of each clinician or resident in neurosurgery or neurology.

Minimally invasive tactics are more and more applied and are changing open surgical procedure to minimize scarring and soreness, improve sufferer restoration, and reduce expense. the single present resource at the subject, this consultant offers step by step assistance, specialist guideline, and distinct representation of the latest minimally invasive orthopedic backbone tactics.
This can be one of many first books to accommodate imaging of pathology of the total visible procedure. it's divided into elements, common and detailed. within the normal half, crucial fundamentals of recent imaging tools are mentioned, yet with much less emphasis at the actual history than in basically neuro-/radiological textbooks.
Ready by way of preeminent hand surgeons and a grasp scientific illustrator, this text/atlas is the main entire reference on surgical anatomy of the hand and top extremity. It good points 500 full-color pictures of unpolluted cadaver dissections and 1,000 meticulous drawings that provide a pragmatic, targeted view of the advanced anatomy encountered in the course of surgeries.
The writer describes in his detailed type the anatomical variations of the mind and cranium. This atlas is a continuation of his final paintings on "Neuronavigation and Neuroanatomy". such a lot anatomical reference volumes express lots of universal and infrequent diversifications. This atlas concentrates on renowned and little recognized versions that are in particular very important for the clinicians, specifically the neurosurgeons and the radiologists.

38,50 Other techniques involve interruption of the tumor’s blood supply more proximally. 21 Ligation of the middle meningeal artery for tumors in the middle fossa base became common practice by the 1950s. 52,53 More commonly, endovascular techniques are used to interrupt arterial feeders or to embolize smaller arteries within the tumor using particulate materials. 57 Tumors located at the cranial base could not generally be removed en bloc without damaging surrounding structures, and by the late 1920s Cushing was using electrocautery (the Bovie loop) to debulk the tumor centrally before collapsing the tumor capsule inward and dissecting it from surrounding structures (Fig.

3% of 424 tumor cases as definitely operable—“primary, accessible, well defined tumors which may be removed without cutting into brain tissue . . ” From our present perspective, these criteria essentially limit the field of “operable tumors” to convexity meningiomas, but this diagnostic entity had not yet been defined. 17 Robert Weir’s patient presented in 1887 with homonymous hemianopsia and papilledema, and an occipital tumor was diagnosed. Through an occipital craniotomy, a large fleshy mass (~9 by 7 cm) that presented on the 2/24/11 10:59 AM convexity was enucleated with a spoon, and the shell was fractured off its attachment to the falx using finger dissection.
