New developments, plus rapid technological innovations have dramatically altered the scope of modern neuroscience. The distinguished authors provide detailed descriptions of clinical and basic neuroscience issues and offer the most innovative new techniques, procedures and approaches as performed in hundreds of clinical cases. The book provides easy-to-follow advice from the clinical and basic neuroscience consultant in neurosurgery, neurology, neuroradiology, and neuropathology, an ideal reference for practicing neurosurgeons, neurologists, and residents-in-training. You will find coverage of aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, brain tumors, and so on, derived from a wide range of etiologies as for neuroscience issues. Refinements in the neurosurgical armamentarium continue to push the borders of neurosurgery forward. Lesions considered inoperable a decade ago can now be resected, especially in the region close to the eloquent area and of skull base.
