Overview

A 'must-have'...[a] low-cost, highly portable, and extremely useful reference volume, which will undoubtedly enjoy continued longevity into the foreseeable future. —Journal of Neurosurgery

A vital resource...For rapid access to the diagnosis and management of all neurosurgical things, there is no substitute.—The Journal of TRAUMA Injury, Infection, and Critical Care

For two decades, Handbook of Neurosurgery — now in a fully updated seventh edition — has been an invaluable companion for every neurosurgery resident and nurse, as well as neurologists and others involved in the care of patients with brain and spine disorders. Dr. Greenberg's classic text covers the breadth of neurosurgery and its allied specialties and provides the latest information on anatomy and physiology, differential diagnosis, and currently accepted principles of clinical management. Renowned for its scope and accessibility, this portable, single-volume guide is packed with more than 1,300 pages of practical information, including thousands of literature citations, handy cross-references, and a thorough index.

Features:

  • New to the seventh edition: detailed coverage of blunt cervical arterial injuries; awake craniotomies; brain mapping; new grading systems for cervical and thoracolumbar fractures; radiation safety for neurosurgeons; organ donation after cardiac death; and expanded discussion of endovascular techniques
  • Numerous updates, including information on dural arteriovenous malformations; tumors and molecular biology; and new neuromonitoring modalities such as brain oxygen tension, cerebral microdialysis, and regional cerebral blood flow
  • The return of basic surgical material to acquaint readers with the operating room
  • A practical new feature called Booking the Case supplies helpful information about scheduling surgery and obtaining informed consent
  • Highly valuable section on hot topics in neurocritical care
  • Color highlights and full-color inserts to enhance readability

Comprehensive and conveniently compact, this book is a must-have reference for neurosurgery residents and a useful tool for anyone working in the clinical neurosciences.

This revised edition, now in one single volume, is a practical, concise reference for neurosurgeons, residents, medical students, nurses, radiologists, emergency room personnel, and operating staff. It contains over 2800 literature citations, a thorough index, and is richly cross-referenced.

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MSc (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: With the advent of modern imaging and surgical techniques, neurosurgery has evolved significantly since the first edition of this handbook over two decades ago. Since the sixth edition of 2006, much has changed in terms of the safety of neurosurgical techniques. This is a welcome and needed update.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a pocket guide to neurosurgical techniques.
Audience: Neurosurgeons, neurosurgery residents, neurologists, and nurses caring for neurological patients are the main audiences.
Features: In addition to the areas covered in the previous edition, this book includes information on diverse neurosurgical techniques and microsurgical anatomical aspects, as well as details of awake craniotomies, neuronavigation protocols, and the nuances of spine instrumentation. Although the book includes neuroendovascular techniques, discussion of this area is weak and, in some instances, inaccurate. Neuroendovascular techniques are becoming a very important part of any modern neurosurgery training program. Otherwise, there are no other drawbacks. The picture quality is superb and the references are up to date.
Assessment: This is an excellent update. The relative weakness in its coverage of endovascular neurosurgery does not diminish the value of this handbook for young professionals in search of a quick pocket neurosurgical reference.
