Praise for this book:[Four stars] Populated with superb pictures of anatomical dissections...highly recommend[ed]...to any clinician dealing with skull base conditions.--Doody's ReviewA richly illustrated, step-by-step guide to the full range of approaches in skull base surgery, this book is designed to enable the surgeon to gain not only the technical expertise for common procedures, but to be able to confidently modify standard approaches when necessary. Full-color images of cadavers orient the surgeon to the clinical setting by presenting in precise detail the perspective encountered in the operating room. The images demonstrate surgical anatomy and the relevant structures adjacent to the exposures. Special emphasis on the relationship between the operative corridor and the surrounding anatomy helps the surgeon develop a clear understanding of whether tissues adjacent to the dissection can be exposed without complications.Features: More than 1,000 high-quality images demonstrate key concepts Brief lists of Key Steps guide the surgeon through each step of the dissection Concise text supplements each photograph, providing descriptions of technical maneuvers and clinical pearls Coverage of the latest innovative approaches enables surgeons to optimize clinical techniques Through detailed coverage of surgical anatomy and relevant adjacent structures, this book enables clinicians to develop a solid understanding of the entire operative region as well as the limits and possibilities of each skull base approach. It is an indispensable reference for neurosurgeons, head and neck surgeons, and otolaryngologists, and residents in these specialties.
Minimal Access Skull Base Surgery – Open and Endoscopic Assisted Approaches is a highly illustrated guide to a range of approaches in ENT surgery, edited by Kofi Boahene and Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa from the John Hopkins Medical Institute, Baltimore, USA. The book focuses on minimal access approaches to skull base compartments using an endoscope, via natural and secondary openings into the head. Comprised of 31 chapters, across seven sections, the book begins with a general introductory section which covers imaging of the skull base, surgical pathology of the skull base and anaesthetic requirements for skull base surgery. Further sections cover approaches to surgery via particular anatomical areas, including transorbital, supraorbital, transnasal, infratemporal fossa, and transoral approaches. The concluding sections cover the management of selected skull base lesions, skull base reconstruction and postoperative management. Minimal Access Skull Base Surgery – Open and Endoscopic Assisted Approaches is enhanced by 428 images and illustrations and an accompanying DVD featuring practical guidance on several procedures. This is an essential resource for neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons, and any health care providers involved in these minimal access procedures.

Organized across 11 sections of in-depth, expertly written text, Smith and Nesi’s Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Fourth Edition has taken the best of the field’s classic reference text and expanded upon it. Detailed chapters cover a multitude of topics relating to various ocular surgeries, pediatric considerations, ocular traumas, and anatomy. Supplemented with a myriad of high-quality illustrations, Smith and Nesi’s Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Fourth Edition is an indispensable reference for oculoplastics surgeons and physicians in other fields.
This book discusses all aspects of skull base surgery, from a neurosurgical point of view. The therapeutic options in the treatment of skull base lesions are explained and a systematic overview of relevant diseases is included. A strong emphasis is placed on practical aspects of skull base surgery: classic surgical approaches and also methods where there has been rapid recent development, such as stereotactic radiation therapy and interventional neuroradiology. Several international specialists systematically describe the treatment of traumatic lesions, tumors, vascular lesions, and developmental anomalies. Surgery of the Skull Base is aimed at neurosurgeons, ENT surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, neurologists, and radiologists.
This full-colour atlas is designed for all students taking either separate or integrated courses in physiology and/or anatomy. The atlas can accompany or augment any human anatomy, human physiology or combined textbook, and should be of particular use in a laboratory situation, where it can stand alone as a laboratory manual.
Highly readable and generously illustrated, the new edition features a new section on the enteric system, new information on the cerebral cortex, and an updated review of cerebrellar organization and function. For understanding and identifying neuroanatomical structures, you cannot find a better source.
This volume on the clinical anatomy of the neurocranium, the orbit and the craniocervical junction is intended to provide a precise and detailed account for the use of neurosurgeons, otorhinolaryngologists, neuroradiologists and roentgenologists. In recent years diagnostic tech niques and the scope of surgical intervention have broadened and have become increasingly refined. Many procedures are nowadays carried out with the aid of magnifying lenses and operat ing microscopes which bring diminutive structures into the range of the surgeon's hand and eye. This means that an atlas of the clinical anatomy of the head must give the surgeon working with the operating microscope and the diagnostician using sophisticated equipment full details of the morphology relevant to the scope of each specialty. It would be a fascinating task to depict all the structures of the orbit and the head from the skull base upwards, but any such plan would have required a photoatlas in several volumes. For this reason I have confined myself to medical problems of current importance. In this volume I have included numerous variations which I have myself encountered, so as to underline the diversity of human anatomy. A more comprehensive presentation of the findings and the structures of the head will be published in the three volumes of LANZ-WACHSMUTH. All the dissections illustrated in this book were prepared and photographed by myself.
This photo atlas is ideal for anyone interested in human anatomy and physiology. Its stunning array of high quality imagery is enhanced by a solid scientific presentation of the principles of the human structure and function. Body systems, orientation, surface anatomy and histology are all fully covered, making this one of the most comprehensive visual guides available.
For more than seventy years, this has been around for medical students, residents, trainees in health-related fields, and clinicians in practice to gain an understanding of neuroanatomy, its functional underpinnings, and its relationship to the clinic. Emphasizing the important concepts, facts, and structures, this full-color andengagingly written text includes clear, memorable tables and diagrams, and is state of the art in pathophysiology and diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders.
This Color Atlas of Anatomy features full-color photographs of actual cadaver dissections, with accompanying schematic drawings and diagnostic images. The photographs depict anatomic structures with a realism unmatched by illustrations in traditional atlases and show students specimens as they will appear in the dissection lab. Chapters are organized by region in order of standard dissection, with structures presented both in a systemic manner, from deep to surface, and in a regional manner. This edition has additional clinical imaging, including MRIs, CTs, and endoscopic techniques. New graphics include clinically relevant nerve and vessel varieties and antagonistic muscle functions. Many older images have been replaced with new, high-resolution images. Black-and-white dissection photographs have been replaced with color photography. A companion website will include an Image Bank, interactive software (similar to an Interactive Atlas), and full text online.
