As an addition to the European postgraduate training system for young neurosurgeons we began to publish in 1974 this series devoted to Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery which was later sponsored by the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies. This series was first discussed 1972 at a combined meeting of the Italian and German Neurosurgical Societies in Taormina, the founding fathers of the series being Jean Brihaye, Bernard Pertuiset, Fritz Loew and Hugo Krayenbiihl. Thus were established the principles of European co-operation which have been born from the European spirit, flourished in the European Association, and have throughout been associated with this series. The fact that the English language is well on the way to becoming the international medium at European scientific conferences is a great asset in terms of mutual understanding. Therefore we have decided to publish all contributions in English, regardless of the native language of the authors. All contributions are submitted to the entire editorial board before publication of any volume. Our series is not intended to compete with the publications of original scientific papers in other neurosurgical journals. Our intention is, rather, to present fields of neurosurgery and related areas in which important recent advances have been made. The contributions are written by spe cialists in the given fields and constitute the first part of each volume.

This is a clear, incisive introduction to neurosurgery. It is designed for the medical student learning about neurosurgery, the neurological or surgical resident who is rotating on neurosurgery, the practicing neurologist, internist or general surgeon who wants a succinct introduction to neurosurgery, and the neurosurgical trainee in his or her early years. The book's emphasis is on the diagnosis and management of common neurosurgical disorders. It covers in a concise, practical fashion the emergency, elective, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that neurosurgeons use. The text is divided into four sections. The first section deals with neurosurgical diagnosis and includes chapters on radiographic and physiological diagnostic modalities. The next section focuses on management decisions including a detailed discussion of neurosurgical emergencies. The third part describes common neurosurgical disorders such as trauma, tumors, cerebrovascular diseases, infections, CSF abnormalities and degenerative spinal disorders. The last section summarizes several special topics in neurosurgery, including pediatric neurosurgery and stereotactic and functional neurosurgery.

In a specialized field such as neurosurgery, highly specific knowledge is required. Training programs in the EU vary, making it difficult to standardize medical training. This manual forms the basis for a European consensus in neurosurgery. It is written for residents, students and physicians with a special interest in neurosurgery. Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are detailed according to localization (cranial, spinal, peripheral nerves) with special consideration given to congenital defects and pediatric neurosurgical disorders, functional and stereotactic neurosurgery, as well as critical neurosurgical care. Each chapter contains the basics of anatomy and physiology. The book is well-organized and clearly structured according to each entity and its neurosurgical treatment options. A better understanding of specific neurosurgical problems will help practicing neurosurgeons provide better medical care for their patients, and will also provide the neurosurgery resident with a reliable European standard for step-by-step management of neurosurgical problems, which will prove useful when preparing for the board examination.

Neurosurgery Notes For The Graduate Students (Penerbit USM)

We dedicate this Neurosurgery: Notes for the Graduate Students to all the residents and young neurosurgeons. Some did read the books but could not grasp the important concepts or facts. We have designed this e-book (electronic book) in note format to provide a comprehensive, yet easy-to-read summary of the essential topics in neurosurgery covering clinical localization, basic neurosciences and neurosurgery itself. The authors want to make this e-book as an additional knowledge to the readers. The purpose is to highlight the important points in neurosurgery. Besides, the real truth in some current neurosurgical practices are not clear, therefore, it is only a guide in note format to make readers quickly grasp the important or arguable points. Some notes mentioned in this e-book are indeed debateable and they may evolve over time. Pertaining to aforementioned notes, the content of this e-book is largely gained from standard protocols or widely accepted practices, our personal experience, notes done during our neurosurgical training locally and overseas, notes taken during international conferences, notes obtained from our personal discussion with the seniors in neurosurgery from all over the world and notes made from current journals in neurosurgery. In summary, it is an electronic neurosurgical note-book with important and debateable knowledge that we would like to emphasize and share with neurosurgical trainees or any graduate students. It is not meant to replace other commonly-referred neurosurgical textbooks. Therefore, trainees and students should read this e-book as an additional-knowledge which could be subjected to further discussion. We would like thank our beloved wives and our family members for being supportive and understanding; our teachers for guiding us and our trainees for motivating us to write this e-book. Finally, we would like to state some interesting quotes from others: 1. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel, only read a page” (Saint Augustine, 354-430). 2. “The more you know, the more you see” and “The brain actually is not like a single organ. It's like a country, there are many organs (cities) in it: There are a vascular organ, an endocrine organ, an immunological organ and many more; In real fact, all are in the brain” (Professor Dr. M. Gazi Yasargil, father of modern neurosurgery). 3. “You need fitness in all aspects: brain, mind, spirit and body to explore optimally the beauty of the brain and nervous system” (Zamzuri Idris, 2016).

This textbook aims to examine some of the most controversial areas of neurological surgery by applying the current evidence to illuminate our understanding of the pathophysiology of each disease and the outcomes from surgical and non-surgical treatments. The Evidence for Neurosurgery is a textbook that will challenge current dogmas in many instances, provide an organized framework for understanding where current evidence can be applied clinically, and illustrate where gaps in the evidence exist and how these deficiencies may be filled in the future. In the first chapter, "Clinical Evidence", the reader will gain an understanding of the levels of clinical evidence and will learn what types of study designs are appropriate and in which situations. The textbook is then divided into six sections: Spine, Vascular, Tumor, Pediatrics, Functional, and Trauma.
