Surgery of Cerebellopontine Lesions
List Price: $239.00

This book covers the entire spectrum of cerebellopontine angle lesions, from the most common to the rarest. All aspects are considered, including biological and radiological characteristics, neurological presentation, diagnosis, treatment options and follow-up care.  The main focus, however, is on surgical management, which is presented in detail with the aid of numerous figures and images documenting technical particularities. Emphasis is placed on an individualized approach tailored to the particular tumor type and extension pattern.  Both novice and experienced surgeons will find the book to be an invaluable source of information and guidance.  It will enable neurosurgeons in the initial years of training to understand and become familiar with the main steps in surgical management while simultaneously providing their senior colleagues with details and technical tips that will help to improve treatment results.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is a comprehensive picture (radiographic, anatomical) text on posterior fossa pathologies encountered by experienced neurosurgeons. … I highly recommend this book to neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neurooncologists. Fellows, students, junior, and seasoned surgeons will find the book helpful.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, May, 2015)

From the Back Cover

Surgery is the mainstay of treatment of almost all cerebellopontine angle lesions. As a result of the progress in neuroanatomy, neuroradiology, neuroanesthesiology, microsurgery and other adjacent fields, total tumor removal with preservation of neurological function has become the generally accepted treatment goal and can be achieved in exceeding numbers. Surgery in this highly complex area, however, may be very challenging and risky.

This book covers the entire spectrum of cerebellopontine angle lesions, from the most common to the rarest ones. All aspects are considered, including their biological and radiological characteristics, neurological presentation, diagnosis, treatment options and follow-up care. The main focus, however, is on surgical management, which is presented in detail with the aid of numerous figures and illustrative cases, documenting technical particularities. Emphasis is placed on an individualized approach tailored to the particular tumor type and extension pattern. The book is based on the unique surgical experience of the senior author, who has operated more than 6 000 cerebellopontine angle lesions.

Both novice and experienced surgeons will find the book to be an invaluable source of information and guidance.  It will enable neurosurgeons in the initial years of training to understand and become familiar with the main steps in surgical management while simultaneously providing their senior colleagues with details and technical tips that will help to improve treatment results.
