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.

Targeted Muscle Reinnervation: A Neural Interface for Artificial Limbs (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) 1st Edition

Targeted Muscle Reinnervation: A Neural Interface for Artificial Limbs (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) 1st Edition

Developed by Dr. Todd A. Kuiken and Dr. Gregory A. Dumanian, targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) is a new approach to accessing motor control signals from peripheral nerves after amputation and providing sensory feedback to prosthesis users. This practical approach has many advantages over other neural-machine interfaces for the improved control of artificial limbs. Targeted Muscle Reinnervation: A Neural Interface for Artificial Limbs provides a template for the clinical implementation of TMR and a resource for further research in this new area of science.

After describing the basic scientific concepts and key principles underlying TMR, the book presents surgical approaches to transhumeral and shoulder disarticulation amputations. It explores the possible role of TMR in the prevention and treatment of end-neuromas and details the principles of rehabilitation, prosthetic fitting, and occupational therapy for TMR patients. The book also describes transfer sensation and discusses the surgical and functional outcomes of the first several TMR patients. It concludes with emerging research on using TMR to further improve the function and quality of life for people with limb loss.

With contributions from renowned leaders in the field, including Drs. Kuiken and Dumanian, this book is a useful guide to implementing TMR in patients with high-level upper limb amputations. It also supplies the foundation to enable improvements in TMR techniques and advances in prosthetic technology.

From detachable balloons and GDC coils to the recent advent of flow diversion, practitioners of have endovascular neurosurgery been fortunate to work in an era of rapid and exciting advances. The first commercially available flow diverter in the U.S. was approved specifically for a small subset of cerebral aneurysms. Recent experience has demonstrated its utility in treating challenging or otherwise untreatable aneurysms, safely and efficaciously. The design of these devices requires learning radically different methods than those used in the deployment of other, non-braided stents.

Flow Diversion of Cerebral Aneurysms by Min Park, Philipp Taussky, Felipe Albuquerque, and Cameron McDougall provides step-by-step guidance on utilization of flow diversion technology in clinical practice. Reflecting the combined experience and knowledge of pioneers in neurointerventional surgery, this comprehensive book fills a gap in available resources. Twenty-one chapters cover fundamentals to advanced concepts – historical perspective to future developments.

Key Features

  • More than 250 high quality graphics and illustrative case studies reinforce key concepts
  • Techniques and nuances of Pipeline, Silk (Balt Extrusion), Surpass Streamline, and Flow-Redirection Endoluminal Device (FRED) deployment
  • An overview of current flow diversion devices, discussion of coil embolization versus flow diversion, off-label uses, adjuvant approaches, and hemodynamic modifications
  • Pharmacology, flow diversion grading scales, and post-procedure radiographic imaging
  • Clinical pearls on ruptured aneurysms, intraprocedural/postprocedural complications, and management of aneurysm residuals

The ultimate goal of incorporating cutting-edge flow diversion techniques into the aneurysm treatment paradigm is improved efficacy and patient outcome. The knowledge gleaned from this outstanding resource will help residents and fellows learn to deploy flow diverters for the first time and enable seasoned clinicians to expand their neurointerventional radiology skills.
