About this book


Both a theoretic text-book and a descriptive atlas, this standard reference in the field of pediatric neurosurgery presents basic clinical concepts and surgical techniques in a step-by-step fashion. The neuro-imaging essential both to clinical diagnosis and surgical planning are set into the text in a consequential manner, endeavoring to facilitate visual retention and spatial orientation. The illustrations present the visual perspectives of the surgeon, they are often integrated into imaging studies, and the sequence of their presentation is designed to permit time-frame comprehension. Great attention is given to the dynamics of decision making (offering alternatives) and where particular caution is the pass-word. The different perspectives and opinions of other leaders in the field are woven into the discussions, developing for the reader concepts upon which he may draw. The review of the world literature between 1980 and 1998 is complete, but the text is not laden with citations, quotes, supporting and opposing views. The author expresses these throughout the book as the synthesis of his readings, discussions, experiences, and reflections.
