Hardbound. This book is a detailed description of the approach to patients with acoustic neuromas, including diagnosis and the choice of conservative care, radiation or surgical treatment. While there is considerable emphasis on quality of life as well as the philosophy and results underlying all forms of intervention, the main thrust is the surgical anatomy and technique.The volume is based on the surgical techniques for total microsurgical removal of 600 acoustic neuromas. Multiple stereoscopic photographic pairs in color were taken through the microscope of each of the 600 cases, and 130 stereo pairs have been included to illustrate the various operative approaches and the anatomic variations, each with a rather detailed description. There are also 30 black and white non-stereo photographs of instruments, positioning and operating room arrangements, as well as 30 X-ray copies. The book is excellent documentation for the future, a highly value
