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.

Der Weg zur richtigen Therapieentscheidung in der HWS-Chirurgie. Zur Behandlung degenerativer Erkrankungen der Halswirbelsäule hat sich eine Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Verfahren mit spezifischen Indikationen, Vor- und Nachteilen entwickelt. Neben der konservativen Therapie steht die operative Stabilisierung der Halswirbelsäule mit Diskusprothesen, Cages und Wirbelkörperersatz im Vordergrund.

Basierend auf ihrer Erfahrung sowie biomechanischen und klinischen Studien stellen die Autoren eine klare Strategie bei der Auswahl des operativen Zugangswegs und des Implantats vor.

Neben den anatomischen, biomechanischen und klinischen Grundlagen beschreiben sie im einzelnen

– die Auswahl des operativen Zugangswegs

– die Auswahl des Implantats

– die Operationstechnik bei den einzelnen Verfahren.

Zahlreiche Abbildungen illustrieren die Befunde, die zur Therapieentscheidung führen, und Schritt für Schritt die operativen Verfahren. Empfehlungen zur Aufklärung und Beratung des Patienten, zum wichtigen Aspekt der Implantatsicherheit und zu den möglichen Komplikationen sowie ein Ausblick auf zukünftige Entwicklungen runden die Darstellung ab.

Neuroprotection & Neuroregeneration of the Spinal Cord
Springer, New York, Heidelberg, Berlin
Joseph J Grenier MD PhD

This is an excellent book covering the latest in the pathology, histology, animal models, and stem cell research regarding acute spinal cord damage. First it highlights both the old and new models of rodent spinal cord injury. The data is top quality including several fluorescent light microscopic slides, and histology work on the compressed cord. A separate chapter is devoted to cervical kyphoscoliotic damage using CT, and MRI image data. There is a separate model of compression looking at the biomathematical and engineering aspects to the contribution as a whole.

There is a good audience to neurologists, neurosurgeons, research fellows, and medical students working in SCI Research. I highly recommend this book to all interested audiences. Thank you to Springer for permission to review this and several other books on spinal cord surgery.
