About this book

Introduction

Meningiomas contains the most up-to-date information currently available on this increasingly common type of brain tumour, with contributions from internationally recognized experts in their respective fields working towards the uniform vision of one world-renowned editor.

As the reported incidences of meningiomas found among otherwise healthy patients has increased over the last few years, so too has our understanding of them, aided in particular by advances in imaging studies such as computer tomography and magnetic resonance testing. As a result, meningiomas as a disease entity, is continuing to rise in clinical importance throughout neurology, neurosurgery and primary care, particularly in geriatrics. Moreover, its socio-economic impact on society will further increase over the next few decades, as the aging population also increases, with people living longer and enjoying healthier lives than ever before.

Publication of a fully comprehensive and updated textbook on this important subject of meningiomas is therefore critically needed now to incorporate all of the aforementioned advancements. Meningiomas is an authoritative title, summarising the entirety of the topic, aimed at neurosurgeons, neurologists and general medical libraries throughout the world.
