Cranial Nerves: Anatomy, Pathology, Imaging by
A single-volume resource for detailed coverage of the anatomy, function, and pathology of the cranial nerves with CT and MRI correlation This beautifully illustrated book combines a detailed exposition of the anatomy and function of the cranial nerves with practical coverage of clinical concepts for the assessment and differential diagnosis of cranial nerve dysfunction. An introductory chapter provides a brief overview of cranial nerve anatomy and function, skull base anatomy, classification of pathologies, and imaging approaches. Each of the twelve chapters that follow is devoted to in-depth coverage of a different cranial nerve. These chapters open with detailed discussion of the various functions of each nerve and normal anatomy. The authors then describe common lesions and present a series of cases that are complemented by CT images and MRIs to illustrate disease entities that result in cranial nerve dysfunction. Features Concise descriptions in a bulleted outline format enable rapid reading and review Tables synthesize key information related to anatomy, function, pathology, and imaging More than 300 high-quality illustrations and state-of-the-art CT and MR images demonstrate important anatomic concepts and pathologic findings Pearls emphasize clinical information and key imaging findings for diagnosis and treatment Appendices include detailed information on brainstem anatomy, pupil and eye movement control, parasympathetic ganglia, and cranial nerve reflexes This book is an indispensable reference for practicing physicians and trainees in neurosurgery, neurology, neuroradiology, radiology, and otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. It will also serve as a valuable resource for students seeking to gain a solid understanding of the anatomy, function, and pathology of the cranial nerves.
The Craniovertebral Junction by
The latest management strategies for complex lesions of the craniovertebral junction Written by masters in the field, The Craniovertebral Junction: Diagnosis, Pathology, Surgical Techniques provides in-depth coverage of up-to-date management principles for this delicate anatomic region. After a brief introduction to anatomy, biomedical considerations, and embryology, the multidisciplinary team of authors, led by Professor Goel, discusses in detail the most innovative fixation and stabilization techniques for atlantoaxial dislocation, as well as congenital,infective, and acquired anomalies in the craniovertebral junction region. Each concise chapter focuses on a single pathology to guide readers through the nuances of these intricate and demanding surgical procedures. Features: Discusses in detail Professor Goel's groundbreaking treatment methods - now accepted as standards in the field Covers state-of-the-art protocols and techniques, including alternative treatment protocols for irreducible and rotatory atlantoaxial dislocation and more Introduces a novel concept of craniovertebral realignment Over 1,000 high-quality drawings, radiographs, and full-color photographs demonstrate surgery and anatomy and enhance the text Contains a full section Casebook featuring 22 well-illustrated cases displaying a wealth of pathology Text is rounded out by practical advice on how to manage trauma, degenerative disorders, infections, and tumors This fully illustrated manual fills the current gap in craniovertebral junction literature with the clear, accessible information every neurosurgeon, orthopedic surgeon, and spine surgeon needs.
The Molecular and Clinical Pathology of Neurodegenerative Disease by
The Molecular and Clinical Pathology of Neurodegenerative Disease brings together in one volume our current understanding of the molecular basis of neurodegeneration in humans, targeted at neuroscientists and graduate students in neuroscience, and the biomedical and biological sciences.
