This unique title is designed to illustrate and foster how a closer working relationship between pediatricians and subspecialists can make childhood medicine work more seamlessly. Despite the common lack of training for pediatricians in pediatric neurosurgery, they are challenged almost daily with caring for children with neurologic conditions. Common Neurological Conditions in the Pediatric Practice is replete with a wide range of instructional case vignettes and is organized into sections that loosely approximate the neurologic development of a child and address issues that are commonly encountered. The first section reviews neurologic development and birth related trauma commonly seen in the neonatal intensive care unit. The second part addresses findings commonly encountered by a pediatrician in a child’s first month of life. The third section is a comprehensive review of hydrocephalus. Part four describes state of the art imaging techniques for the central nervous system in children, from pre-natal ultrasound through MRI and CT; and the fifth part consists of individual explorations of common neurosurgical conditions that many pediatricians are uncomfortable managing, including brain tumors, spasticity, and vascular lesions to use as a reference tool when caring for a complex neurosurgical patient. Finally a series of chapters related to head trauma, including sections on non-accidental trauma and concussion management, completes the text.

Описание: Presents neurosurgical anatomy by detailing approaches on cadavers in the same position patients would be placed in during a real operative procedure. Anatomy is described in: 1) all commonly used cranial and cranial base approaches, 2) anterior, posterior, anterolateral and posterolateral approaches to all segments of the spine, 3) all commonly performed procedures on peripheral nerves, and 4) endoscopic approaches to cranial and spinal neurosurgery. Stresses the understanding of the anatomy rather than the performance of the procedure.

Описание: ...surpasses even high expectations...rich in insightful, intelligent and relevant operative nuances...a stunning gallery of excellent illustrations and photographs... -- Neurological Surgery ResearchOriginally published in 2006, the second edition of this award-winning neurosurgical atlas is written by a notable cadre of world-renowned spine surgeons. Reflecting the enormous depth and breadth of spine surgery, this volume has been completely updated with current, state-of-the-art surgical methodologies and minimally invasive options. Pathologies include degenerative changes, congenital abnormalities, rheumatic diseases, tumors, and trauma.The authors have divided the book into six consistent sections: occipital-cervical, midcervical spine, cervicothoracic junction, thoracic and thoracolumbar spine, lumbar and lumbosacral spine, and peripheral nerve. Within each section, the opening chapters cover comprehensive discussion of pathology, etiology, and differential diagnosis. Succeeding chapters present step-by-step surgical techniques encompassing anterior, anterolateral, posterior, and posterolateral approaches, separately and in sequence. Minimally invasive techniques and peripheral nerve procedures, including the brachial plexus, lumbosacral plexus, and individual nerves are covered independently, following the same organization.Key Highlights:Clearly delineated indications, contraindications, advantages, and disadvantages provided for each surgeryOperations with same opening and closing technique covered just once, thereby minimizing redundancyBeautifully illustrated with more than 1,000 imagesVideo compendium created by master surgeons provides up-close guidance on a wide array of surgical proceduresIdeal for both the busy practitioner seeking review and resident looking for robust study materialsThis book is an incomparable learning tool for residents, who will likely read it several times during the course of residency. A precisely edited, didactic atlas, neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons will also find it an invaluable resource.
