The ultimate guide to navigating and treating brainstem pathologies from master neurosurgeon Robert Spetzler The brainstem is one of the last bastions of surgical prohibition because of its densely packed ascending and descending tracts and nuclei carrying information to and from the brain. Although 10% of all pediatric tumors and 5% of all vascular anomalies occur in the brainstem, neurosurgeons have traditionally resisted dissecting lesions in this area. Recent advances in imaging, microscopy, anesthesia, and operative techniques have expanded the treatment paradigm for this most eloquent region of the brain. Surgery of the Brainstem, by internationally renowned neurosurgeons Robert F. Spetzler, M. Yashar S. Kalani, and Michael T. Lawton, along with an impressive cadre of global experts, is a comprehensive guide to managing disorders of the brainstem, thalamic region, and basal ganglia. Organized in seven sections with 33 chapters, the text opens with four sections covering a variety of topics. Section I presents the history of brainstem surgery; Section II examines anatomy, development, and pathology; Section III reviews patient examination, imaging, and monitoring; and Section IV provides a succinct overview of surgical approaches. Sections V-VII cover a wide range of adult and pediatric tumors, ischemia, stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and cerebral cavernous malformations. More than 300 high-quality clinical images and medical illustrations enhance the text. Key Highlights A full spectrum of treatment modalities and outcomes, including open surgery, endoscopic approaches, stereotactic radiosurgery, radiotherapy, endovascular techniques, and revascularization An anatomy chapter featuring stunning Rhoton-style anatomical dissections delineates critical landmarks in the brainstem, thalamus, pineal region, and cranial nerves Detailed discussion of patient positioning and exposure of various brainstem domains Pearls on overcoming psychological, pathological, and anatomical barriers and managing complications Understanding the basic anatomy, pathology, and clinical complexities of the brainstem and thalamic regions is essential for safe navigation and treatment. This remarkable book will provide neurosurgeons with additional insights on performing resections and achieving the best possible outcomes for patients with pathologic conditions in this delicate region. This book includes complimentary access to a digital copy on https://medone.thieme.com.

The highly complex specialty of brainstem surgery requires many years of study, a focus on precision, and a passionate dedication to excellence to prepare the neurosurgeon for navigating significant anatomic challenges. Although the brainstem is technically surgically accessible, its highly eloquent structure demands rigorous surgical decision-making. An in-depth understanding of brainstem and thalamic anatomy and the safe entry zones used to access critical areas of the brainstem is essential to traversing the brainstem safely and successfully. This remarkable, one-of-a-kind atlas draws on the senior author's decades of experience performing more than 1,000 surgeries on the brainstem, thalamus, basal ganglia, and surrounding areas. Its content is organized by anatomic region, enabling readers to study separate subdivisions of the brainstem, each of which has its own unique anatomic and surgical considerations. From cover to cover, the atlas provides readers with technical guidance on approach selection, the timing of surgery, and optimization of outcomes-elucidated by more than 1700 remarkable color illustrations, dissections, clinical images, and line drawings. Key Highlights Beautifully detailed, highly sophisticated brain slices and dissections by Kaan Yagmurlu, who trained under the internationally renowned neuroanatomist and neurosurgeon Albert Rhoton Jr. Color illustrations clearly labeled with callouts and other indicators of foci of interest delineate multiple safe entry zones to the brainstem More than 50 detailed patient cases highlight each patient's history of previous neurological disorders, presenting symptoms, preoperative imaging, diagnosis, the planned surgical approach, patient positioning, intraoperative and postoperative imaging, and outcome Seven animations and more than 50 surgical videos elucidate approach selection, anatomy, and surgical outcomes of thalamic region and brainstem lesions This illuminating atlas provides insights into the complexities of the hallowed halls of the brainstem. Neurosurgeons and neurosurgical residents alike who glean knowledge from the clinical pearls throughout each section will no doubt become more adept surgeons, to the ultimate benefit of their patients.

This aims to provide a complete text to enable the student to appreciate both the medical and surgical implications of diseases encountered on surgical wards. 49 chapters have been revised into 15 sections to group subjects in a more structured way to aid reference and learning. The text is ordered by body systems and includes chapters on practical procedures and medico-legal problems. It steers students from academic study towards the practical aspects of surgery. This aspect also makes the book applicable as background reading for primary FRCS candidates.

This clinical reference on neurophysiologic monitoring during otologic, skull base, and head and neck surgery, is aimed at guiding surgeons in the use of intraoperative monitoring to reduce the risk of neural injury and should enable neurophysiologists, EEG technicians, audiologists, and neurologists to utilize their diagnostic testing skills in the operating room. A group of leading experts details the principles of intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring, the capabilities and limitations of current monitoring modalities, the technical and interpretive problems that arise in the operating room, the electrophysiology of cranial nerves that are at risk during surgery, and the applications of neurophysiologic monitoring during specific surgical procedures. To enable all specialists to quickly access the information they need, the book covers basic electrophysiology and clinical applications separately. A helpful chapter on working in the operating room is also included.
