About this book

This book covers the entire spectrum of cerebellopontine angle lesions, from the most common to the rarest. All aspects are considered, including biological and radiological characteristics, neurological presentation, diagnosis, treatment options and follow-up care.  The main focus, however, is on surgical management, which is presented in detail with the aid of numerous figures and images documenting technical particularities. Emphasis is placed on an individualized approach tailored to the particular tumor type and extension pattern.  Both novice and experienced surgeons will find the book to be an invaluable source of information and guidance.  It will enable neurosurgeons in the initial years of training to understand and become familiar with the main steps in surgical management while simultaneously providing their senior colleagues with details and technical tips that will help to improve treatment results.

Reviews

“This is a comprehensive picture (radiographic, anatomical) text on posterior fossa pathologies encountered by experienced neurosurgeons. … I highly recommend this book to neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neurooncologists. Fellows, students, junior, and seasoned surgeons will find the book helpful.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, May, 2015)
