Atlas of Neurosurgical Anatomy: The Pterional Perspective
John L. Fox
Springer New York, Apr 14, 1989 - Medical - 208 pages
The author John L. Fox shares his many years of teaching and surgery through more than three hundred illustrations and photographs (including over one hundred in color). Dr. Fox has published many works on neuroscience and clinical neurosurgery and is well-known for his color images of live neurosurgical anatomy as viewed through the operating microscope. Historic techniques, instrumentation and positioning, photographic techniques, cranial anatomy and the cranial flap, and intracranial anatomy as seen from the frontolateral or pterional approach are clearly discussed and illustrated from the operating (right sided) surgeons' perspective. The operations seen in this atlas for the main part involve aneurysms and some tumors. Directed toward neurosurgeons, neuroscientists, and anatomists, the book is intended to serve as an atlas of anatomy as well as a guide to clinical neurosurgery.

I love this book! Dr Fox is FOXY. He performed my surgery and as far as I am concerned he is a genius and an honest man. I learned more while reading this book than any other informative book. He is innovative smart and humble.
Thank you for saving my life and many others.
This book is a must read for many people..... This must be a very driven man....
