Arteriovenous Malformations in Functional Areas of the Brain
Wiley, Mar 17, 1999 - Medical - 276 pages
Despite the successful treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) in silent areas of the brain, only recently has the treatment of AVMs in functional areas moved within the scope of neurosurgical treatment. Dr Yamada’s guide, Arteriovenous Malformations in Functional Areas of the Brain meticulously explores the three clinically-accepted modes of AVM treatment (microsurgery, intravascular intervention, and radiosurgery) used individually or in conjunction with each other.
This book is the culmination of Dr Yamada's desire to promote the multi-disciplinary treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Introduced into this book is the surgical technique that Dr Yamada developed for complex AVMs, based on extensive analysis of the vascular anatomy, and meticulous planning and careful execution of the neccessary surgical steps. This monograph presents the work of an outstanding group of experts with individual expertise in the treatment of functional areas of AVMs and related pathophysiology. Contributions from neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, radiosurgeons, neuroanaesthetists and neuropathologists combine to create a uniquely comprehensive and up to date account. This invaluable guide will become an important reference for all physicians who care for patients with cerebral arteriovenous malformations.
