Reviews

“Every chapter is written by a well-known and established expert in the field. Many of these contributors share 'pearls' of wisdom that has been gained over many decades of clinical experience. … The book is a useful addition to the library of all surgeons who deal with skull base cranial surgery, and provides outstanding information and reference sources for complex skull base procedures amenable to the transsphenoidal approach.” (David S. Baskin, Neurosurgery, Vol. 83 (03), September, 2018)​
