en Limba Engleză Paperback – 12 Mar 2018
Modern diagnostic imaging and operative approaches have witnessed significant improvements in our times. Computerassisted methods are in use in all microsurgical fields. Neuronavigation, novel stereotactic methods, endoscopic procedures, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and the progress in pre- and intraoperative epilepsy diagnostics must be mentioned in particular in this connection.However, the insights of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology have not become obsolete thereby, on the contrary: such knowledge is imperative and a prerequisite for all neurosurgeons, nowadays more than ever before. Otherwise, excellent modern approaches are liable to fall into discredit if microanatomical aspects are neglected.The goal of this book is two-fold: first, to guide the resident towards a fruitful application of anatomical basics in visualizing and operative techniques. Second, to draw attention to as many anatomical norm variants as possible to forestall complications during surgery. Standard methods, such as the pterional approach, often confront the surgeon with a range of anatomical variants.

"... This is a valuable book for neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists." British Journal of Neurosurgery 2001; 15 (01)"... truly a monumental volume. It is beautifully illustrated and a pleasure to handle ..." Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry 2001/70"... This book is the result of a large experience and presents numerous illustrations which speak for themselves ... Wolfgang Seeger's book, thanks to its simplicity, pedagogical efficiency and to the enormous amount of knowledge it gathers, can be one of the 'companion guides' of the practitioner neurosurgeon. It will also be very useful to the neuroradiologist who will know more about the technical preoccupations of the neurosurgeon beyond the mere diagnosis of the lesion and about the elements the neurosurgeon needs to visualise in order to perform surgical gestures in the best conditions possible."
