For two decades, Handbook of Neurosurgery -- now in a fully updated seventh edition -- has been an invaluable companion for every neurosurgery resident and nurse, as well as neurologists and others involved in the care of patients with brain and spine disorders. Dr. Greenbergrs"s classic text covers the breadth of neurosurgery and its allied specialties and provides the latest information on anatomy and physiology, differential diagnosis, and currently accepted principles of clinical management. Renowned for its scope and accessibility, this portable, single-volume guide is packed with more than 1,300 pages of practical information, including thousands of literature citations, handy cross-references, and a thorough index. Features: - New to the seventh edition:detailed coverage of blunt cervical arterial injuries; awake craniotomies; brain mapping; new grading systems for cervical and thoracolumbar fractures; radiation safety for neurosurgeons; organ donation after cardiac death; and expanded discussion of endovascular techniques - Numerous updates, including information on dural arteriovenous malformations; tumors and molecular biology; and new neuromonitoring modalities such as brain oxygen tension, cerebral microdialysis, and regional cerebral blood flow - The return of basic surgical material to acquaint readers with the operating room - A practical new feature called Booking the Case supplies helpful information about scheduling surgery and obtaining informed consent - Highly valuable section on hot topics in neurocritical care - Color highlights and full-color inserts to enhance readability Comprehensive and conveniently compact, this book is a must-have reference for neurosurgery residents and a useful tool for anyone working in the clinical neurosciences.
