Cranial Osteomyelitis: Diagnosis and Treatment



This book is the first reference book covering exclusively all aspects of this challenging disease. It is designed to serve as a succinct appropriate resource for neurosurgeons, otorhinolaryngologists, neuroradiologists, researchers and infectious disease specialists with an interest in cranial infection. Cranial Osteomyelitis provides an in-depth review of knowledge of the management of skull osteomyelitis, with an emphasis on risk factors, causative pathogens, pathophysiology of dissemination, clinical presentations, neuroradiological findings and treatment modalities, medical and surgical. Sections on the prognosis and prevention of this illness are also included. The book will help the reader in choosing the most appropriate way to manage this challenging bone infection. In addition, it supplies clinicians and investigators with both basic and more sophisticated information and procedures relating to the complications associated with skull osteomyelitis. It also considers future areas of investigation and innovative therapeutic philosophies. The book is richly illustrated to provide readers with unparalleled access to a comprehensive collection of cranial osteomyelitis images (biological, clinical, neuroradiological, and surgical) taken directly from the author’s collection and experience in the field.

Book: MRI of the Pituitary Gland

MRI of the Pituitary Gland
By Jean-François Bonneville, Fabrice Bonneville, Françoise Cattin, Sonia Nagi

MRI of the Pituitary Gland

Price: $179.00


This clinically oriented book will familiarize the reader with all aspects of the diagnosis of tumors and other disorders of the pituitary gland by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The coverage includes acromegalyCushing’s diseaseRathke cleft cysts, prolactinomas, incidentalomas, Clinically nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas, other lesions of the sellar regionhypophysitis, and central diabetes insipidus. Normal radiologic anatomy and the numerous normal variants are described, and guidance is also provided on difficulties, artifacts, and other pitfalls. The book combines concise text and high-quality images with a question and answer format geared toward the needs of the practitioner. MRI is today considered the cornerstone in the diagnosis of diseases of the hypophyseal-hypothalamic region but the relatively small size of the pituitary gland, its deep location, the many normal anatomic variants, and the often tiny size of lesions can hinder precise evaluation of the anatomic structures and particularly the pituitary gland itself. Radiologists and endocrinologists will find MRI of the Pituitary Gland to be full of helpful information on this essential examination, and the book will also be of interest to internists and neurosurgeons.

It is only two weeks from now to have the chance to get one of the last positions as a participant in the ‘III Edition of 3DNeuroanatomy and Neurosurgical Approaches WFNS Course 2016’. As you probably now, this edition will cover the ‘Anterior and Middle Skull Base Endoscopic and Microscopic Approaches’.

With the effort of trying to improve the quality of the course, this year we feel pleased to introduce some news. One of them is a surgical station carried out and designed by Dr. Juan A Simal, and titled ‘Endotrainer: first skills in endoscopic endonasal surgery’. At this station every participant will have the chance to perform a huge amount of endoscopic exercises, improving their surgical skills and learning interesting techniques and tricks from the experts.

Don’t miss the chance and join us in Alicante at the end of this month and let’s enjoy together learning and teaching!

Book: Integrating Pain Treatment into Your Spine Practice

Integrating Pain Treatment into Your Spine Practice
Integrating Pain Treatment into Your Spine Practice

Price: $129.00

This book fills the gap in knowledge and patient care by showing spine surgeons how to integrate pain management techniques into their practice. The first of its kind, Integrating Pain Treatment into Your Spine Practice is in tune with current efforts by major neurosurgical and neuromodulation societies and leading manufacturers of neuromodulation equipment to educate spine surgeons on the management of their patients’ post-surgical pain.

Designed as an all-in-one volume, this book explains how to identify candidates for pain treatment and when to refer them to specialists. It also presents “how-to” clinical information on approaches to managing pain, from the medical to the interventional and provides practical business guidance on coding and reinforcement.
