Overview

Neuro-Oncology is the first volume in the second edition of the highly regarded Neurosurgical Operative Atlas series first published by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. It provides an accessible, step-by-step guide to the newest approaches for managing brain, skull base, and spinal tumors. Organized into concise sections according to anatomical location, type of tumor, and surgical approach, this book enables the reader to rapidly review key concepts in preparation for surgery. In each chapter the author describes the case selection, the operative indications and contraindications, special points concerning anesthesia, the various operative approaches available, and the possible complications during and after surgery. Concise, yet thorough, this text will be an invaluable reference for both beginning and established neurosurgeons.

Highlights:

  • Covers the full range of neuro-oncological problems, including sellar and parasellar tumors, intraventricular tumors, spine and peripheral nerve tumors, malignant brain tumors, meningiomas, and posterior fossa tumors
  • Features more than 500 high-quality illustrations that supplement descriptions of each step of the procedures, providing an indispensable visual aid to managing complex clinical situations

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Well organized...this is a superb work on the neurosurgical management of central nervous system neoplasms. I highly recommend it for all neurosurgical libraries.--Doody's Book Reviews
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1991, much has changed in the neurosurgical management of intracranial tumors, including the use of sophisticated neuronavigation modalities and neuroendoscopy. This updated edition was not only necessary but expected by the neurosurgical community.
Purpose: The purpose is to update neurosurgeons and trainees in the techniques and approaches to brain tumors. The book remains focused on the incorporation of new technology into the operative arsenal.
Audience: Neurosurgeons are the target audience. The authors are well known experts in the field of surgical neuro-oncology.
Features: This well organized book directs the reader from craniotomies to different approaches for specific cerebral, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve neoplasms. An overview of the most common skull base approaches is elegantly presented in the last few chapters. As peculiar to this neurosurgical series, personal clinical insight is offered in addition to the art work and well written text. Some 80 authors contribute the 36 chapters in this book.
Assessment: This is a superb work on the neurosurgical management of central nervous system neoplasms. I highly recommend it for all neurosurgical libraries, since it is a reference for most neurosurgeons and trainees.
