Part of the Neurosurgery by Example series, this volume on pediatric neurosurgery presents exemplary cases in which renowned authors guide readers through the assessment and planning, decision making, surgical procedure, after care, and complication management of common and uncommon disorders. As pediatric neurosurgery approximates the anatomical and pathophysiological breadth of all specialty areas of adult neurosurgery, the cases provided are exemplary ofthose that are more relevant to, and seen in higher frequency, in pediatrics. The cases also demonstrate presentation and management appropriate for pediatrics, as both are distinct in pediatric compared to adult neurosurgery. Each chapter also contains 'pivot points' that illuminate changes required to manage patients in alternate or atypical situations, and pearls for accurate diagnosis, successful treatment, and effective complication management. Containing a focused review of medical evidence and expected outcomes, Pediatric Neurosurgery is appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about a subspecialty, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oralexamination.

This very instructive text will be of interest to all levels of neurosurgical trainees and practitioners, as well as to any medical specialists who want to understand the clinically important issues regarding the conditions discussed. I cant think of a better contemporary review text to prepare for oral board or re-certification examinations.
The authors present the spectrum of pediatric neurosurgery in a unique way, developing each chapter from the perspective of an individual case. Therapeutic options are considered, surgical techniques are described in detail, and postoperative management and complications are discussed. The text is likely to be a valuable resource for residents in their early years of training and for those reviewing for oral board exams.
