Reviewer: Ricardo Prat, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive guide for a better understanding and management of ischemia secondary to head trauma. It is based on symposium on ischemia in head injury that was held at the 10th European Congress of Neurosurgery in Berlin in 1995. It is divided into five chapters with a discussion in the end.
Purpose: The main purpose is to update the current knowledge in the pathophysiologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of ischemia developed after head trauma. The author also focuses on ischemia as an important threat after head injury.
Audience: This book is written both for residents and practitioners involved in head trauma management, including those in neurosurgery, emergency, and intensive care. The author also targets the book to paramedical staff involved in the care of patients with head injury.
Features: In general, illustrations are pertinent and simple. References correspond to very interesting publications, but they are cited only in the text, not in a separate bibliographic section. This is a well-designed, easy-to-read publication.
Assessment: Everyone involved in the management of these patients will find this book interesting and easy to read. It should not be considered an exhaustive guide in head injury management, but it includes worthy information for physicians. New editions based on future meetings on the same topic will be worthwhile.
