Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Fills a unique niche in the world of neurosurgery textbooks...An excellent introduction to most of the basic principles and problems of neurosurgery. To quote the editors, it is 'comprehensive without being encyclopedic.'"

-NEJM, review of the previous edition

"This book succeeds in providing a visual understanding of the essentials of neurosurgery. The illustrations -- imaging, pathology, operative, diagrams, tables, and figures - in both color and black and white, are spectacular and abundant. The selected reference list is updated and the index is well organized. The legacy of Christopher C. Getch and Setti S. Rengachary, to whom this edition is dedicated, continues." - Ramsis Farid Ghaly, MD, FACS(Ghaly Neurosurgical Associates) Doody 5 stars!

"...the editors are to be appluaded for a remarkable consistency and homogeneity of text despite its 54 chapters being scribed by over 150 authors. At least 50 of them appear still to be in training from their affiliations. 'Rengachary' is therefore a book by registrars for registrars, although the next generation may come to know it as 'Ellenbogen'....it reamains a recommended overview, as its name suggests, of the principles for a growing specialty, whether a junior registrar cribbing for a teaching session or a senior registrar easing into cramming for exit examinations."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ramsis Farid Ghaly, MD, FACS (Ghaly Neurosurgical Associates)
Description: With its concise but comprehensive, to-the-point format, this is a "what you need to know" synopsis of the essentials of the field of neurosurgery. This edition comes with access to an online version that includes a selection of 42 cases and 67 surgical videos performed by masters. This update is overdue, since the second edition was published seven years ago.
Purpose: The purpose is to convey the latest advances in neurosurgery in a modern, attractive format. It is written by well-known authorities in the field.
Audience: Popular among neurosurgeons and related trainees, the book targets students, house officers, and practicing neurosurgeons. It is appropriate for neurosurgical and orthopedic spine trainees and established practitioners. It may also be useful for medical students, neurologists, neuroradiologists, and neuroscientists.
Features: This modernized update incorporates new ways to convey pertinent information about the core and novel areas of neurosurgery. In addition to covering techniques for pediatric and vascular neurosurgery, trauma, the spine, tumors, functional/pain, and radiosurgery, the book describes advances in neurosurgery and neuroimaging. Each chapter includes clinical pearls, surgical techniques, evidence-based medicine, illustrations, and selected references. In addition to the expected updates in each chapter, this edition adds 42 online cases (26 vascular, 13 skull base and tumors, and 3 cranial nerve decompression) and 67 surgical video clips by masters.
Assessment: This book succeeds in providing a visual understanding of the essentials of neurosurgery. The illustrations — imaging, pathology, operative, diagrams, tables, and figures - in both color and black and white, are spectacular and abundant. The selected reference list is updated and the index is well organized. The legacy of Christopher C. Getch and Setti S. Rengachary, to whom this edition is dedicated, continues.
