Intraoperative Neurophysiology : Interactive Case Studies

Price: $110.00

ADD TO SHOPPING CART

Intraoperative Neurophysiology contains100+ cases with audio narration teaching users the how-to s of intraoperative neurophysiology, from set-up to interpretation and troubleshooting. The DVD showcases examples of intraoperative neurophysiology (ION) recordings as well as supplemental material that provide the foundation for choosing the right test and understanding the surgical challenges for effective monitoring. Video clips of continuous data recordings are also included within the cases where appropriate.

Intraoperative Neurophysiology on DVD contains three modules. The first is didactic, and provides instructional material about the various techniques used for ION, technical tips for obtaining optimal recordings, (and the interpretation of ION data. The second module presents case examples of ION data from different types of operations and using a variety of techniques, along with questions about the interpretation of the data. The examples can be accessed in random order, or the user can select a specific subset of cases if desired. A short practice quiz that enhances self-assessment and exam preparation is also included.

New Book: Moyamoya Disease Update

Moyamoya Disease Update

Moyamoya Disease Update

Price:$259.00

ADD TO SHOPPING CART

Moyamoya disease (MMD) was first reported as a new entity among vascular disorders in 1957. Named for the abnormal vascular networks found around the occluded distal internal carotid artery, it is the most common pediatric cerebrovascular disease in East Asia. In recent years large amounts of data on MMD have been collected and important investigations have been carried out in Japan and Korea, even as the pathophysiology of the disease remains to be discovered. This monograph covers a diversity of topics and presents a systematic compilation of the data and current status of MMD in clinical practice and basic research. With contributions by more than 70 authors, the book includes sections on genetics, computational analysis of hemodynamic shear stress, new imaging techniques, and endovascular treatment of MMD, along with practical applications and future directions for gene and stem cell therapies. For neurosurgeons as well as neurologists and pediatricians, this volume will help lead to more efficient and informed management of MMD.

From the reviews:

“This is an almost 400-page book on the current status of all things relating to Moyamoya disease (MMD) definition, etiology, status of research, diagnostic modalities, and treatment options. … Illustrative of all this material … are well done, sharp, and clear, with good legends and explanatory material. … Certainly, this is the definitive book for someone who wishes information on Moyamoya disease. It is quite complete, almost excessively so, and will undoubtedly remain a basic source for several years to come.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2010)

“Moyamoya Disease Update, edited by Cho and Tominaga, provides an excellent update of this recent progress and a comprehensive overview of all relevant aspects of the disease. … This book is an exciting and highly recommended update on moyamoya disease. In addition to the scientific and clinical information, the book clearly indicates that recent years have been substantial progress in our understanding of the disease.” (Peter Vajkoczy, The Lancet Neurology, Vol. 9, August, 2010)

Endovascular Neurosurgery Through Clinical Cases

Endovascular Neurosurgery Through Clinical Cases

By Aristotelis P. Mitsos

Endovascular Neurosurgery Through Clinical Cases

Price List: $159.00

ADD TO SHOPPING CART

Endovascular neurosurgery is a recently introduced but rapidly evolving medical field, which uses minimally invasive interventions to treat major life-threatening vascular lesions of the Central Nervous System. Although its history counts less than 15 years of worldwide acceptance, it has rapidly displaced the traditional open neurosurgical techniques, being nowadays the first treatment choice for brain aneurysms and vascular malformations. Thus, the experience of each neuroendovascular center and performer is invaluable, offering the base for learning and teaching the new generation of interventionalists as well as for the evolvement of the method itself.

This book presents the basic principles of endovascular neurosurgery starting from clinical cases. Through this close-to-clinical-reality-process, the reader will be able to more thoroughly understand the pathophysiology of the brain and spine vascular lesions as well as the decision-making strategy, related to the indications, endovascular methods and results, finding suggestions and solutions to his/her clinical questions and problems. Besides chapters devoted to CNS vascular embryology and anatomy, clinical cases organized in groups based on the treated lesions are introduced: ruptured and unruptured cerebral aneurysms of the anterior and posterior circulation, side-wall and bifurcation aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVM), dural arteriovenous fistulae (dAVF), arterial stenosis and angioplasty as well as spinal vascular lesions. A separate chapter is devoted to the organization and necessary equipment of the angio room and the department offering neuroendovascular service.

This volume will be of interest to neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists, vascular surgeons, neurologists and ICU physicians as well as health care providers who are involved in the diagnosis and management of the vascular lesions of the brain and spine.
