This full-color surgical atlas offers a close, true-to-life view of periorbital anatomy as visible in the course of an operative strategy. greater than a hundred thirty photos of clean cadaver dissections and greater than a hundred shiny drawings via an award-winning ophthalmic artist permit surgeons to completely preview this advanced anatomy sooner than surgical procedure.

Stereotactic Techniques in Clinical Neurosurgery

Quite a few textbooks on stereotactic neurosurgery were released over the last few years (Riechert 1980, Schaltenbrand and Walker 1982, Spiegel 1982), them all facing practical stereo strategies because the significant topic within the box. Diagnostic and healing stereotactic interventions are just in short defined, while localization options are usually not but pointed out.

1A). 5% of primary brain tumors, and usually affects young adults (the average age of presentation is 29 years). Clinical Findings Symptoms are nonspecific, such as headache and other symptoms related to elevated intracranial pressure. Complications Hemorrhage rarely occurs, and can be the reason for presentation. indd 23 A B C Fig. 2 Nonenhancing central neurocytoma. (A) Post-contrast axial T2W FLAIR, (B) axial T1W image, and (C) sagittal T1W image demonstrate a mass in the left lateral ventricle that is T2 hyperintense, T1 isointense to gray matter, nonenhancing, and containing an internal T1 hyperintense focus (arrow) compatible with a traversing vein.

Other areas of susceptibility also likely represent internal calcifications. T2 hyperintense vasogenic edema involves the left frontal lobe white matter as well as the left internal and external capsules. There is associated mass effect on frontal horns of the lateral ventricles. (D) Axial DWI demonstrates the mass is mildly restricted (ADC not shown) most consistent with hypercellularity. indd 44 T1W image: usually hypointense, although T1 shortening may be related to hemorrhage or melanin. T2W image: typically hyperintense; iso- or hypointensity on T2W image may be related to hemorrhage, mucin secretion (adenocarcinomas), or a high nuclear-to-cytoplasmic ratio T2 hyperintense parenchymal vasogenic edema suggests focal invasion Postgadolinium: enhancement may be solid, peripheral, or mixed Restricted internal diffusion if hypercellular 11/9/12 1:10 AM I NEOPLASMS–SUPRATENTORIAL A 45 B C Fig.

(A) Axial T2W FLAIR and (B) axial postcontrast T1W demonstrate a predominately T2 hyperintense mass that heterogeneously enhances and is centered within the right lateral medulla and inferior cerebellum. There is mild encroachment of the mass on the fourth ventricle. No cysts are identified. indd 28 image reveals a focus of internal susceptibility effect consistent with calcifications, which was confirmed on a corresponding CT examination (not shown).
