Atlas of Neurosurgery: Basic Approaches to Cranial and Vascular Procedures
Here's a tool that is useful when preparing to perform common intracranial procedures. The operations chosen for review in this text were based on a list created by determining the frequency of each procedure performed by the author. The atlas is organized from the perspective of a surgical approach. The intent of the atlas is to provide the surgeon a framework to review ways of accessing a region and performing a particular surgical procedure.
