This book answers frequently asked questions about common pediatric neurosurgical conditions related to vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord, in an attempt to fill in the gap and answer numerous questions that arises after a diagnosis is made. Pediatric patients with neurosurgical conditions are almost always referred from either primary care physicians, neurologists internists or a specialist in family medicine. Recently, neurosurgeons treating adult population also refer a pediatric patient to their colleague specialized in this field. There are over 1500 academic and private hospitals in the US who have dedicated tertiary Neurosurgery services and cater thousands of small children every year, in addition to numerous centers that have level 1 and 2 trauma care. However, there are few tertiary level Pediatric centers which can provide quality care for neurosurgical conditions. This book is specially written and illustrated for residents, fellows and consultants/attendings in all pediatric related specialties, including but not limited to Neurosurgery, Neurology, Pediatrics, Radiology, Anesthesia.
