Throughout the book, internationally renowned experts provide clinical pearls and insights based on hand-on surgical expertise, case studies, and evidence-based data.

Key Highlights

  • Diagnosis and treatment of uncommon congenital syndromes including Wyburn-Mason syndrome and Parkes-Weber syndrome; and autosomal dominant genetic disorders such as Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome) and Capillary malformation/arteriovenous malformation (CM-AVM) syndrome.
  • More than 300 high quality illustrations plus videos elucidate impacted cerebrovasculature and treatment modalities.
  • The utilization of preoperative and postoperative imaging for AVM evaluation and intraoperative imaging for AVMs and AVFs.
  • Surgical management of lobar AVMs, brain dural arteriovenous fistulas, cerebellar AVMs, basal ganglia, thalamic, and brainstem AVMs.

Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery: Principles and Evidence-Based Practice

List Price: $170.00

ADD TO SHOPPING CART

This book provides a timely, comprehensive and evidence-based review of minimally invasive surgery of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. Minimally invasive techniques are now aided by more advanced endoscopic instruments, video, and computerised navigation systems broadening the range of surgical procedures that can be carried out with similar efficacy as traditional open spinal surgeries, without the significant burden on the patient recovery and rehabilitation. This book thoroughly reviews the preclinical and clinical data on minimally invasive spinal surgery and describes and illustrates the current effective techniques. An authoritative, international team of contributors add their clinical experience and expertise to provide a clear, authoritative and practical guide. The book is organised in four sections covering cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine regions with a final section on the latest advances in technologies and the cost-effectiveness of current treatments.

Atlas of Anatomy of the Peripheral Nerves: The Nerves of the Limbs – Student Edition

List Price: $89.99

ADD TO SHOPPING CART

This innovative atlas focuses on peripheral nerves and provides a brand new approach compared to regular anatomy books. Using a modern 3D approach, it offers an alternative to conventional anatomical structures. It reviews all the anatomy and the morphology of these structures from an original point of view.
In these three-dimensional diagrams, as well as in the watercolor drawings enhanced with a 3D inlay, each type of nerve is depicted in a minute detail.
The atlas simplifies the anatomy and make it easy and understandable by allowing readers to develop a mental “real-time 3D GPS”.
The integration of MRI sections related to the drawings and the descriptions of the main nerve injuries provide medical students with a flexible but effective transition to the radiological interpretation and furthers the clinical learning process.
After a detailed evaluation of the morphofunctional anatomy of the peripheral nerves, the authors present a collection of relevant data on neuromuscular transmission, both from classical and recent literature, ranging from the central and peripheral nervous system to the effector muscle. This information offers a basis for understanding the physiology, the pathology, and the repair prospects of peripheral nerves from a purely theoretical point of view.
The book is divided into three main parts:
– Fundamental notions: from immunohistochemistry to limb innervation
– The upper limb: the brachial plexus and related peripheral nerves
– The lower limb: the lumbosacral plexus and related peripheral nerves
This atlas also features 261 outstanding full-colour 2D and 3D illustrations. Each picture has been designed in 2D and 3D with a combination of the original editor’s personal drawings/paintings and 3D-modeling tools.
This book is a valuable resource for anyone studying medicine, anaesthesiology, neurosurgery, spine surgery, pain, radiology or rheumatology and is also of high interest to the whole medical community in general.
