New Book: Neurovascular Imaging (From Basics to Advanced Concepts)

Neurovascular Imaging: From Basics to Advanced Concepts

Neurovascular Imaging: From Basics to Advanced Concepts

List Price: $799.00


Vascular Neurology, Vascular Neurosurgery and Interventional Neuroradiology are independent fields with dedicated Training Programs. Neuroimaging, and in particular what we call “Neurovascular Imaging” is a unifying factor which can be considered the intersection of these three medical specialties. With this book we aim to cover thoroughly the imaging techniques, potentialities, and present and future applications as applied to all the vascular diseases of the central nervous system from the imaging point of view. This book will comprise eight main sections: (1) The Basics, (2) Arteries of the Head and Neck (3) The basics of Intracranial Arteries (4) Diseases of the vessels (5) Stroke Imaging (6) Veins Imaging (7) Spine Imaging (8) Pediatrics.

New Book: Common Neurosurgical Conditions in the Pediatric Practice: Recognition and Management

Common Neurosurgical Conditions in the Pediatric Practice: Recognition and Management

Common Neurosurgical Conditions in the Pediatric Practice: Recognition and Management

List Price:$109.00
This unique title is designed to illustrate and foster how a closer working relationship between pediatricians and subspecialists can make childhood medicine work more seamlessly.  Despite the common lack of training for pediatricians in pediatric neurosurgery, they are challenged almost daily with caring for children with neurologic conditions.  Common Neurological Conditions in the Pediatric Practice is replete with a wide range of instructional case vignettes and is organized into sections that loosely approximate the neurologic development of a child and address issues that are commonly encountered.  The first section reviews neurologic development and birth related trauma commonly seen in the neonatal intensive care unit.  The second part addresses findings commonly encountered by a pediatrician in a child’s first month of life.  The third section is a comprehensive review of hydrocephalus.  Part four describes state of the art imaging techniques for the central nervous system in children, from pre-natal ultrasound through MRI and CT; and the fifth part consists of individual explorations of common neurosurgical conditions that many pediatricians are uncomfortable managing, including brain tumors, spasticity, and vascular lesions to use as a reference tool when caring for a complex neurosurgical patient.  Finally a series of chapters related to head trauma, including sections on non-accidental trauma and concussion management, completes the text.

Pediatric CNS Tumors (Pediatric Oncology)

List Price:$199.00


Pediatric CNS Tumors is a detailed review of childhood brain tumors that offers a biologically based perspective on their management. For each tumor type, epidemiology, pathological features, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment are discussed. Particular emphasis is placed on the provision of treatment algorithms that reflect current best practice, and controversies and therapeutic agents under development are also addressed. The closing chapters consider many of the diagnostic and treatment modalities common to all tumors, with special attention to experimental and emerging techniques. This third edition of the book has been thoroughly revised and updated to take into account the latest advances in knowledge and treatment.
