Diagnostic Surgical Neuropathology by Location, is a practical guide for all pathologists in their initial, real-time encounters with brain of spinal cord biopsies for the immediate rendering of an intraoperative diagnosis based on the squash preparations of frozen section. The book is organized with a heavy emphasis on neuroanatomic to neuropathologic relationships best defined as a given lesion’s location with regard to its contiguous macroscopic and microscopic environments. The demonstration of the lesion’s macroscopic environment would include corresponding radiographic images, diagrams, and photographs of applicable autopsy teaching specimens for comparison; the microscopic environment would be illustrated by photomicrographs expressly composed in ways to show lesions in relation to contiguous unaffected, non-diseased tissue. The chapters progress from the cranial-to-caudal segments of the neuraxis from brain to spinal cord, respectively. The topics to be included in this book consist of all lesions likely to be encountered in the course of intraoperative neuropathologic consultation; this would encompass both primary and metastatic (secondary) forms of CNS neoplasia, non-neoplastic CNS lesions (for example, demyelinative processes), and CNS infections.

* Introduces neuropathology via neuroanatomic context instead of type of tissue
* The focus on location supports better understanding of the neuropathologic study
* Introduces the benefits of squash preparations for intraoperative assessment of neuropathology specimens

Decision Making in Neurovascular Disease

List Price: $249.99

ADD TO SHOPPING CART

Neurovascular medicine has emerged as an established, semi-independent subspecialty of neurology and neurosurgery. Decision Making in Neurovascular Disease focuses on the challenging process of determining the best approach for managing patients with intracranial atherosclerosis, carotid artery disease, stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, arteriovenous fistulae, cavernous malformations, and hypervascular tumors. Leonardo Rangel-Castilla, Robert Spetzler, esteemed coauthors, and an impressive cadre of experts discuss highly divergent modalities including medical management, open cerebrovascular, endovascular, radiosurgery, and combined/multimodality alternatives.

The book is organized into seven sections: Ischemic Stroke and Vascular Insufficiency, Aneurysms – Anterior Circulation, Aneurysms – Posterior Circulation, Aneurysms – Other, Arteriovenous Malformations and Fistula, Cavernous Malformations, and Hypervascular Tumors. Chapters include an introduction, decision-making algorithm, whether to treat, conservative management, anatomical considerations, clinical and imaging evaluation, differential diagnosis, treatment options, images, clinical and radiographic follow-up, and suggested reading.

Key highlights

Simple algorithms accompanying 71 chapters supported by the latest, most updated information in the literature
More than 375 radiologic images help elucidate disease-specific treatment decision making
Step-by-step guidance, clinical pearls, surgical nuances, complication avoidance, and evidence-based outcomes provide in-depth understanding
Point/counterpoint expert commentary on each case provides balanced insights on potential implications of specific treatments
This essential step-by-step book is a must-have for residents and fellows in neurosurgery, neurology, endovascular, interventional radiology, vascular neurology, and neurocritical care, as well as veteran clinicians in these specialties

Hemifacial spasm is a neuromuscular movement disorder characterized by brief or persistent involuntary contractions of the muscles innervated by the facial nerve. Its prevalence has been estimated at 11 cases per 100,000 individuals.

Hemifacial spasm is usually caused by an artery compressing the facial nerve at the root exit zone of the brainstem. As for treatment, many  patients obtain moderate or marked relief from local injections of botulinum toxin (Botox), which must be repeated every 3 to 4 months. Alternatively, microvascular decompression has a success rate of about 85%.

My story follows my more than 8 year struggle with this condition and is written to hopefully help those who are going through the same thing to a positive and successful treatment.

 

Handbook of Pediatric Neurosurgery

Handbook of Pediatric Neurosurgery 1st Edition

by George I. Jallo (Editor), Karl Kothbauer (Editor), Violette Recinos (Editor)

List Price: $124.99

ADD TO SHOPPING CART

Pediatric neurosurgery has witnessed considerable technological advances, resulting in more efficacious outcomes for young patients with hydrocephalus, epilepsy, brain tumors, spinal deformities, and a host of other conditions. The art of pediatric neurosurgery is a delicate balancing act—taking into account child and parents and emotional and disease challenges. As such, the management of serious neurological conditions in pediatric patients must encompass the big picture in addition to treating underlying pathologies.

Handbook of Pediatric Neurosurgery by George Jallo, Karl Kothbauer, and Violette Recinos covers the full depth and breadth of this uniquely rewarding subspecialty including congenital, developmental, and acquired disorders. The latest information is provided on anatomy, radiological imaging, and principles guiding the surgical and nonsurgical management of a full spectrum of neurological pathologies impacting infants and children. The book is divided into 11 sections and 56 chapters with state-of-the-art procedures, best practices, and clinical pearls from top pediatric neurosurgeons.

Key Features

Cranial disorders including Chiari malformations, encephaloceles, Dandy-Walker malformation, and craniosynostosis
Benign and malignant tumors—from the hypothalamus and optic pathways to the brainstem and spinal column
Spinal abnormalities such as spina bifida, tethered cord, and scoliosis
Clinical questions and answers at the end of chapters—ideal for self-testing and exam prep
Comprehensive and compact, this is the perfect backpack reference for neurosurgery residents and pediatric neurosurgery fellows to carry on rounds. It is also a must-have resource for seasoned pediatric neurosurgeons and all practitioners entrusted with the neurological care of pediatric patients.
