Principles of Neurological Surgery (3rd Edition)

Ideas of Neurosurgery, via Drs. Richard G. Ellenbogen, Saleem I. Abdulrauf and Laligam N Sekhar, presents a extensive evaluation of neurosurgery excellent for someone contemplating or education during this strong point. From normal rules to precise options, it equips you with the views and abilities you want to be successful.

Surgical Anatomy Around the Orbit: The System of Zones (2005)

This full-color surgical atlas presents a close, true-to-life view of periorbital anatomy as visible in the course of an operative strategy. greater than one hundred thirty pictures of unpolluted cadaver dissections and greater than a hundred vibrant drawings by way of an award-winning ophthalmic artist permit surgeons to completely preview this advanced anatomy ahead of surgical procedure.

Stereotactic Techniques in Clinical Neurosurgery

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

Used with permission from Emilio Vega, RT) A ᮡ B Plate 3. A: Nonenhanced axial CT of the head shows subarachnoid hemorrhage and a high density in the pons, which might mistakenly be interpreted as a hematoma. B: 3D-volume rendered image of the CT angiogram of the brain viewed from the patient’s left side shows a large proximal basilar aneurysm, which had invaginated into the pons from below. ᮡ Plate 4. Normal MIP 3D-volume rendered MR angiogram of the circle of Willis. The A1 segment of the right anterior cerebral artery is hypoplastic.

MRI is very sensitive for bone marrow abnormalities, including metastases and bone edema. Certain pulse sequences exceed the sensitivity of CT for specific questions. For example, with fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR), high T2-signal white matter lesions, including vasogenic edema, infiltrating tumors, and demyelinating plaques, are more conspicuous than with CT (Figure 3–6). MRI often detects nonspecific white matter lesions not seen with CT. These hyperintense lesions, best seen using FLAIR and unassociated with mass effect or abnormal enhancement, are variously described as unidentified bright objects (UBOs), areas of leukoaraiosis, microvascular disease, or chronic ischemia.

Thus a description of a lesion on MRI may seem long-winded: “Isointense signal on T1-weighted pulse sequences, low signal on T2-weighted pulse sequences, hypointense on FLAIR, markedly hypointense on gradient echo. . ” (The same patient’s CT report reads: “There is a hyperdense mass consistent with an acute hematoma in. . ”) Calcifications are notoriously difficult to appreciate on MRI. Bone detail is poor. ᮣ When to Order A. Brain 1. Stroke—DWI is a fast and accurate method of detecting acute infarction (Figure 3–7).
