Overview

Two top neurosurgeons deliver complete, up-to-date guidance on the diagnosis and management of cerebrovascular aneurysms and malformations in this groundbreaking new resource. Stressing a multidisciplinary, team approach, this text presents a wealth of information on the treatment of aneurysms, the management of subarachnoid hemorrhage, techniques to occlude aneurysms*both surgical and endovascular*patient selection, and more.

• Represents the first book of its kind that describes all aspects of cerebral aneurysms and subarachnoid hemorrhage.
• Uses over 400 original images to illustrate nuances of diagnosis and technique.
• Features the work of international authors who are experts in their respective fields.
• Presents full-chapter coverage of the topics most relevant to practice today: Microsurgical Anatomy of the Anterior Cerebral Circulation (Ch. 3) · Surgical Management of Giant Cerebral Aneurysms (Ch. 42) · Endovascular Equipment and Devices for the Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms (Ch.55) · Future Endovascular Management of Aneurysms (Ch. 60) · Surgical or Endovascular Treatment of Aneurysms: A Comparison of Techniques (Ch. 61) · and Endovascular Biological Aneurysm Management (Ch. 62).
• Reflects the significant advances in understanding the pathophysiology of cerebral aneurysms and the development of innovative techniques (both surgical and endovascular) to occlude aneurysms.
• Examines unique aneurysms such as those occurring during pregnancy, in childhood, and in elderly patients · infectious or traumatic aneurysms · aneurysms associated with arterio-venous malformations · multiple aneurysms and subarachnoid hemorrhage of unknown cause.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Management of intracranial aneurysms has gone from periods of merely clinical description, to observation, to clipping, followed by neuroendovascular techniques, and now, a combination of multiple techniques. Summarizing all the developments in the management of intracranial aneurysms is the objective of this book.
Purpose: The purpose is to address the management of intracranial aneurysms and present insights into the history of each of the developments. These worthy objectives are achieved by the authors.
Audience: Neurosurgeons comprise the main audience for this book.
Features: Over 100 authors contribute 63 chapters. The book starts with an original insight into the history of management of intracranial aneurysms and progresses to the details of the management of specific aneurysmatic conformations, the differences in clips, and the new neuroendovascular techniques. The pictures are up-to-date and precisely reflect the text, which is written in a simple yet comprehensive manner. There are no particular shortcomings in this book, except that the topic may already be covered well in other books.
Assessment: This is a good purchase for any neuroscience library for its comparison of the new to the historic presentation of intracranial aneurysms. It is worthwhile for neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other professionals directly or indirectly involved in the management of intracranial aneurysms.
