New York/Stuttgart –Atlas of Emergency Neurosurgery, recently co-published by Thieme and the AANS, is part of the Neurosurgical Operative Atlas Series and serves as a step-by-step visual guide to performing surgical procedures used in neurotrauma as well as non-traumatic emergency cases. More than 500 full-color illustrations help clarify the procedures in the text. The chapters address such topics as cerebral trauma, stroke, shunt failure, central nervous system infection, and pituitary apoplexy. Special sections on pediatrics as well military-related injuries are also included.

“While there are other texts that deal with Neurotrauma, none of them are as digestible as this one. I could wax eloquent on the many merits of this book. I don’t need to. As you simply flip through its pages, you will see for yourself that this is a book worth having – not just to display on your bookshelf, but to keep handy and to use on an everyday basis.” – From the Foreword by Raj K. Narayan, MD, FACS, FAANS

This atlas is an ideal guide for neurosurgery residents who are participating in emergency procedures while on call and need to deal with operative trauma situations. It is also an excellent practical reference for neurosurgeons performing emergency neurosurgical interventions on a regular basis.
