Description


The complex, highly technological field of neurovascular
surgery is quickly expanding, encompassing traditional surgical approaches, as
well as endovascular and neurointerventional techniques. The last decade has
seen increased cross-specialty interest in utilizing minimally invasive
techniques to help prevent and treat cerebrovascular disease. Concurrently,
there has been important research analyzing the efficacy of surgical methods
versus endovascular approaches - and the clip versus coil discussion is covered
herein.


Written by 21st Century pioneers in the field, this second, cutting-edge
edition offers the latest science throughout 1,400 pages - and a remarkable
video library - covering anatomy, diagnosis, epidemiology, history, treatment
indications, technical nuances, outcomes, and complications. Internationally
renowned experts from across the globe share clinical pearls and best practices, from the research lab to the ER to the OR.


Medical, surgical, endovascular, cerebral revascularization, bypass surgery,
radiation therapy, and other procedures are covered in depth. Evidence-based and
transdisciplinary, the second edition covers the full spectrum of neurovascular
pathologies, preoperatively and postoperatively, including:


  • Ischemic Stroke and Vascular Insufficiency
  • Cerebral and
    Spinal Aneurysms
  • Cerebral and Spinal Arteriovenous Fistulae and
    Malformations
  • Vascular Tumors
  • Carotid Artery
    Disease
  • Moya-Moya Disease
  • Revascularization techniques


Organized into 11 primary sections, 99 richly illustrated chapters, and more
than 140 videos, this volume is an invaluable, one-stop reference tool. It is a
must-have for general, vascular and endovascular neurosurgeons; interventional
radiologists; neurologists; critical care practitioners; and
neuro-rehabilitation specialists.
