Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Since the development of stereotaxic radiosurgery, different applications have been developed, including in trigeminal neuralgia, acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, and other situations in which a decrease in the overall size contributes to better management a posteriori.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to compile the different applications of stereotaxic radiosurgery in modern practice. Those objectives were clearly met by all authors, who incorporate their own experience in the realm of radiosurgery for vascular malformations, neoplasms, and other intracranial conditions.
Audience: The primary audience is composed of neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and radiation oncologists. Neurologists should be included in the audience as well, for they interact with patients who will eventually need radiosurgery to mitigate or treat their medical conditions. All authors and commentators are well-known authorities in the field.
Features: The 15 chapters are written by 56 authors. The expertise of the authors is unquestioned, as many of them have dedicated their careers to pursuing avenues in the management of multiple neurological conditions via stereotaxis. Using excellent illustrations, this book presents all modern imaging modalities and their application to the determination of surgical targets.
Assessment: This is an important work on stereotaxis for the nervous system and should be purchased for neurosurgical libraries.
