About this book
Pediatric Neurosurgery identifies and describes the theoretic concepts of clinical and operative neurosurgery in the different ages of childhood, emphasizing both clinical and surgical principles. It presents a comprehensive body of pediatric clinicopathologic entities, elaborating upon the anatomical and physiological criteria which distinguish individual age categories. This book is unique in that it establishes an holistic approach to perceiving spatially the dimensions of the child vis-a-vis the surgeon and his team, the disarticulation of individual states of operative procedures and the grouping of procedures common to the treatment of different clinicopathological entities, the presentation of clinical parameters indicative of surgical treatment and essential to determining which techniques are preferable. The extensive use of artwork and operative photographs highlights the systematic description of general and specific surgical techniques as it integrates the clinical principles into guidelines for therapy.
