Craniopharyngiomas: Comprehensive Diagnosis, Treatment and Outcome
List Price: $200.00
James J. Evans
It is a comprehensive guide to the science, diagnosis and treatment of craniopharyngiomas, that grow near the pituitary gland. Even though these tumors are generally benign, due to the location, prognosis was often bleak. This reference provides a resource for specialists requiring a comprehensive overview of this tumor, outlining new diagnostic, imaging and surgical techniques, including endoscopic endonasal cranial base surgery.
With a better prognosis, patients require multidisciplinary management from neurology, otolaryngology, radiation oncology, endocrinology, and neuropathology.
