Operative Neurosurgical Anatomy

Front Cover
This volume collects anatomic dissections organized to present relevant fundamental information concerning surgical anatomy and structural connections. Fossett and Caputy (neurosurgery, The George Washington U.) present 43 chapters by 14 contributors that discuss and illustrate (with three-dimensional color images) anatomic specimens oriented in the operative position and dissected using standard surgical approaches. Topics are divided into indications for approach; positioning and skin incision; surgical technique; pitfalls, pearls and considerations; and suggested readings. They cover cranial, spinal and peripheral nerve approaches, and neuroendoscopy. Numerous color images support the text. Oversize: 9.25x12.25".
