Intracranial Epidural Bleeding: History, Management, and Pathophysiology

Intracranial Epidural Bleeding: History, Management, and Pathophysiology

Intracranial Epidural Bleeding: History, Management, and Pathophysiology examines the history of the concepts underlying the understanding of the clinical features of epidural bleeding. The pathophysiology of epidural bleeding was examined in two PhD theses in the 1980s, with the results published in top international journals. However, these concepts have not been understood by the general neurosurgical community. This book provides a comprehensive overview of how epidural bleeding actually works. It can be used to help improve the interpretation of images during management, and to assess degrees of urgency. This book is written for neurosurgeons, neurologists, cerebrovascular physiologists, trauma surgeons, and medical historians.

  • Focuses on the understanding of the clinical features of epidural bleeding
  • Helps to improve the interpretation of images during management, and in assessing degrees of urgency
  • Includes a comprehensive historical review of the understanding of epidural bleeding over time

Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery: Volume 43

Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery: Volume 43

List Price: $159.00
This volume reviews standard treatments for spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas, examining the anatomy of arteries and veins of the sylvian fissure, as well as microsurgical advances and the development of modern therapeutic strategies in intracranial meningiomas. The advances section presents a strategy for minimizing hearing loss after stereotactic radiosurgery for vestibular schwannomas, as well as a description of the mode of action and biology of ALA, including its interaction with tumor cells and the limits of this method. A dedicated chapter addresses the essential question of the limits (and merits) of various tractography techniques and of their importance for non-specialists, who may be tempted to use them uncritically. A further chapter examines molecular markers, which have become standard in neuropathological reports on intracranial tumors, reviewing the prognostic and predictive value of these modern molecular markers in gliomas. Additional chapters round out the coverage, offering a comprehensive overview of standard and advanced techniques.

This superb color atlas sets a new standard in neuroanatomy by presenting around 300 detailed thin-sectioned images of the human head, including the brain, with 0.1-mm intervals and a pixel size of 0.1 mm × 0.1 mm. A new reference system employed for this purpose is clearly explained, and structures are fully annotated in the horizontal, coronal, and sagittal planes. Recent advances in 7T MRI and 7T TDI have considerably enhanced imaging of the human brain, thereby impacting on both neuroscience research and clinical practice. Moreover, the information gained from initiatives involving photography of thin slices of human cadavers, such as the Visible Human Projects, Visible Korean and Chinese Visible Human, has enriched knowledge of neuroanatomy and thereby facilitated the interpretation of such ultra-high-field resolution images. The exquisite images contained within this atlas will be invaluable in providing both researchers and clinicians with important new insights.
