Microsurgery Course on Vascular Anastomoses
May 17, 2016 — May 20, 2016
Course Leader: Rosmarie Frick
A cycle of microsurgical practical courses, for neurosurgeons, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons and residents, that will be held in our labs under the direction of Rosmarie Frick, the worldwide known teacher of the legendary “Zurich Microsurgery Course”.
The number of participants will be expressly limited, in order to allow each trainee to have her own lab station equipped with microsurgical instruments and microscope.
During four full days of training, the participants will be able to familiarize themselves with the microinstruments and learn the key points of micro-dissection, micro-suturing and vascular anastomosis.
This course is being held: 16 – 19 February, 17-20 May, and 8 – 11 November 2016.
In 2016 Frau Frick’s Microsurgery course will be held in Pavia instead of in Monza.

Anticoagulation and Hemostasis in Neurosurgery
This book is an up-to-date reference on all aspects of anticoagulation and hemostasis in neurosurgery. After an opening section on basic principles and drug classes in current use, detailed consideration is given to coagulation issues relevant to all patients, not just neurosurgical ones. The coverage includes, for example, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and disseminated intravascular coagulation. A variety of important issues specific to neurosurgical practice are then addressed, and a summary of current guidelines and best practices is provided. By bringing together the latest knowledge from across the discipline, this book will serve as a sound basis for informed decision making in surgical practice. It will be of daily value for neurosurgeons and trainees worldwide and will also be of interest to emergency room physicians, surgeons in general, critical care physicians, neurologists, and hospital medicine specialists.

From the Back Cover
As the population ages and prophylactic anticoagulation for different cardiac disorders is validated by cooperative trials, it is becoming ever more important that practicing neurosurgeons have the requisite knowledge to manage optimally the opposing processes of anticoagulation and hemostasis. Nevertheless, only a modest amount of structured information is at present available on the subject, with the consequence that decision making is too often insufficiently informed. This book, written by recognized experts, is designed to rectify this situation by bringing together the latest knowledge from across the entire discipline. It will be of daily value for neurosurgeons and trainees worldwide and will also be of interest to emergency room physicians, surgeons in general, critical care physicians, neurologists, and hospital medicine specialists.
