Overview

The Neurosurgeon's Handbook is compact, readable, multi-authored, extensively illustrated and authoritative source of high quality neurosurgical information; it is the ultimate companion to neurosurgical trainees and neurosurgeons around the world.

Based on the curriculum of British, North American and European neurosurgical training Programs, and with the contribution of some of the worlds leading neurosurgeons and neuroclinicians, The Neurosurgeon's Handbook has been produced with the highest possible standards and it concisely covers all aspects of adult and paediatric neurosurgery. It is systematically, meticulously and clearly broken down into easy-to-follow sections that contain condensed but comprehensive neurosurgical information.

Over 18 sections and 113 chapters, all critical neurosurgical information is systematically presented to include clear definitions; epidemiology, pathophysiology and mechanisms of disease; neuroradiological and neuropathological features; critical care and neuroanaesthesia; clinical presentation and differential diagnosis; treatment; critical surgical anatomy and step-by-step key operative techniques of the brain, skull base and spine.

The material is based on clinical trials, major clinical series and the extensive personal experience of some of the worlds best neurosurgeons and neuroclinicians who contributed to the handbook. Hundreds of imaging studies, neuropathological photographs (some in full colour) and anatomical and surgical diagrams supplement the text which is methodically organised to allow understanding of all complex neurosurgical concepts of adult and paediatric neurosurgery.

Widely accepted practice guidelines, major classification schemes, commonly used neurological scales, significant syndromes and constellation of key signs and symptoms are found in 188 tables, presented in a way easy to understand and remember.
