Overview

The book contains 48 articles presented at the 11th International Conference on Cerebral Vasospasm held in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, in July 2011. This collection of papers represents a cross-section of the enormous progress that has been made towards a thorough understanding and effective treatment of neurovascular events following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, including cerebral vasospasm. It is of interest to clinicians who wish to apply state-of-the-art knowledge to their management of this devastating condition and to basic scientists wishing to expand their understanding of cerebrovascular and neural pathophysiology related to subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Reviewer: Ramsis Farid Ghaly, MD, FACS (Ghaly Neurosurgical Associates)
Description: Presenting the proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Cerebral Vasospasm held in Cincinnati, Ohio, in July 2011, this book provides an extensive review of the current understanding of the topic from well-known authorities in the field.
Purpose: The book summarizes the latest understanding of subarachnoid hemorrhage and subsequent neurovascular events. It provides a thorough background in both pathophysiological phenomena and management and covers many aspects of neurovascular events in addition to mechanisms, risk factors, diagnosis, treatments and outcomes, such as biomarkers, new pharmacological trials, brain spreading depolarization phenomena, and neural biochemicals.
Audience: The audience includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, intensivists and neurointensivists, emergency room physicians, internists, family practitioners, and neuropathologists. The book is appropriate for libraries in neuroscience departments, hospitals, and academic medical centers, as well as for intensive and neurointensive care units. The editors and contributors are leading experts in the field.
Features: The presentations are divided into eight sections and 51 chapters. The papers are classified as clinical trials and dilemmas, methodology, approaches, management, surgical and endovascular management, spreading depolarization, neurovascular coupling and microvasculature, preclinical studies, and risk factors. The book reviews mechanisms, traditional and new diagnostic methods, biomarkers for diagnostic, course, and prognostic values, risk factors, and outcome measures. Each scientific paper consists of standard headings: abstract, keywords, introduction, methods, results, discussion, conclusion, and references.
Assessment: This book summarizes the progress in the understanding and treatment of vasospasm following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Papers present recent innovations in diagnostic imaging, neuromonitoring, and cellular and microcirculatory alterations following subarachnoid hemorrhage, and associated neurovascular events. The last chapter presents an appendix of selected abstracts of additional scientific papers. The references, subject index, author index, and illustrations are well done.
