This book provides coverage of a broad range of topics in the field of neurosurgery, for residents and registrars in training and for recent graduates of training programs. As neurosurgical training incorporates expertise from centers worldwide, there is a need to have input from specialists in neurosurgery from various countries. This text is a compilation by expert authors in the USA and the UK to provide information on the basic knowledge and clinical management required for optimal care of neuro-surgical patients.
The text is an up-to-date synopsis of the field of neurosurgery from American and British perspectives, which covers the most common clinical conditions encountered by neurosurgeons. The chapters are organized under broad topics, including investigative studies, perioperative care, the role of newer techniques and the management of tumors, vascular and traumatic lesions. Additional topics are then covered, including pediatrics, spine and peripheral nerve lesions, as well as functional neurosurgery and infections. We anticipate that trainees will find this information useful for certification examinations and recent graduates of neurosurgical training programs can utilize this text as an update of the most important neurosurgical topics.
