Neurosurgery

An Introductory Text

Author: Peter McL. Black,Eugene Rossitch

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA

ISBN: 9780195044492

Category: Medical

Page: 238

View: 6715

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.

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).

Landmark Papers in Neurosurgery

Author: Reuben D. Johnson,Alexander L. Green

ISBN: 0199674027

Category: Medical

Page: 381

View: 1239

Evidence-based medicine is a concept that has come to the fore in the past few years. Clinicians are increasingly encouraged to practise patient management based on available evidence in the scientific literature. For example, new pharmacological therapies are only used when large randomized trials have 'proven' that a particular drug is better than existing ones. This is also the case in surgical specialties, although surgery has traditionally seen a lack of use of this information, with individual surgeon's preferences being most influential in treatment choices. However, more recently, there has been a large expansion of trials and studies aimed at providing surgeons with information to guide their choices using firm evidence. This new edition has been revised and expanded to include new data where relevant, and also features a new chapter on pituitary surgery. Landmark Papers in Neurosurgery 2e remains a key collection of the most important trials and studies in neurosurgery, allowing the reader to rapidly extract key results, and making it essential reading for all neurosurgeons and trainees in the field.

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.

The concept of this project is based on the premise that neurosurgeons are vital agents in the application of the American health care apparatus. They remain the true advocates for patients undergoing surgery for a neurological condition. Yet, the tenets of health care economics, health care policy, and the business of medicine remain largely debated within the context of politicians, policy experts, and administrators. This textbook will ease that gap. It will bring material generally absent from medical curricula into discussion. It will make potent features of health care economics, policy, and the business of practice digestible to clinical neurosurgeons in order to help them better treat their patients. The information provided in this text will also provide an excellent foundation for understanding the mechanics of running a neurosurgical practice. It simultaneously addresses career progression and opportunity evaluation.

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.
