In Wolfgang Koos' final work, a lifetime of experience in the surgical treatment of the acoustic neurinoma is presented in the style of the brilliantly successful Koos-Spetzler microneurosurgery series. Diagnosis is a strong point of this atlas, as surgical strategies are planned according to the anatomic location and growth pattern of these tumors. The preoperative considerations, operating room set-up, patient positioning, and neuronavigational equipment are described for microsurgery in the cerebellopontine angle region. The operative techniques for removing acoustic neurinomas in correlation with size and extension of the tumor are then provided in step-by-step detail; intraoperative photographs are paired with explanatory colored line drawings of astonishing clarity. Finally, the tumors of the cerebellopontine angle that may mimic acoustic neurinoma are described.Críticas:
'Succinct [and] comprehensive in its scope ... highly useful and intuitive... beautifully illustrated... The level of detail is on par with the best of dedicated anatomy texts... This book is an absolute requirement for department libraries and for use in training. Surgeons are also likely to find this volume a worthwhile addition to their personal libraries.' -- Young Neurosurgeons NewslettersIn an exquisitely illustrated atlas, three authors share their talents...Well worth seeing and reading...a must buy for neurosurgical, neurological, and general medical libraries, for its up-to-date, picturesque, and precise nature. --Doody's Notes'Concise and well-written, generously illustrated with operative photographs, line drawings, and colored diagrams...well-organized, with extensive bibliography and practical subject index...junior and expert surgeons alike will appreciate the logical sequence of images...an excellent reference and learning aid for those operating in the cerebellopontine angle...the authors have admirably succeeded in producing an outstanding reference, and a truly worthwhile addition to individual and departmental neurosurgery libraries.' --The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences
