Oxford Case Histories in Neurosurgery
OUP Oxford, Mar 21, 2013 - Medical - 453 pages
Part of the Oxford Case Histories series, this volume includes 65 neurosurgical cases covering core topics specified in the UK Neurosurgical Training Curriculum. Cases are drawn from the following clinical areas: trauma, vascular neurosurgery, tumours, spinal neurosurgery, hydrocephalus and paediatric neurosurgery, functional neurosurgery, and medical problems in neurosurgery. Revolving around actual patients and the relevant knowledge required in specific situations for decision making in clinical practice, this book will serve as an invaluable educational tool to help trainees, doctors, and pratising neurosurgeons manage the a wide variety of clinical scenarios encountered in neurosurgery.
