The Neurosurgeon's Handbook A compact, readable and highly-authoritative source of critical neurosurgical information, Neurosurgery has been produced with the participation of some of the world's leading neurosurgeons and neuroclinicians and is based on the curriculum of British, European and North American neurosurgical training programs. The book is extensively illustrated with hundreds of figures demonstrating the imaging features of all major neurosurgical pathologies, including diagrams explaining key anatomical and surgical concepts, and images showing the features of common brain tumours. There are key references at the end of each chapter and critical commentary of neurosurgical literature is also included. The handbook concisely covers all aspects of adult and paediatric neurosurgery. It is systematically and clearly broken down into easy-to-follow sections such as introductory basic concepts, definitions, epidemiology, pathology, clinical and neuroradiological characteristics, clinical management and decision making. Additional sections on operative treatment include the key critical surgical anatomy, and clear, step-by-step descriptions of common surgical techniques. Widely accepted practice guidelines, major classification schemes and common scales are clearly presented and explained.
