About this book

Introduction

This book describes neurosurgical cases following the format of the clinical handover. Each case has a one line summary and differential diagnosis, appropriate interpretation of illustrated radiological studies, further ancillary tests, and management options. When appropriate, scoring/scaling systems and detailed anatomy are described, as well as basic surgical techniques and approaches. The information provided is evidence-based, referring to the relevant publications. 

Neurosurgery: A Case-Based Approach is aimed at junior neurosurgical trainees, both when studying for their exams and enhancing their ability to handover to colleagues.
