New York/Stuttgart – Dr. Harvey Cushing, considered the “father of modern neurosurgery,” referred to the posterior fossa as the “gloomy corner” of neurological surgery because of the morbidity and mortality of this area was so bleak. Still today, this area is recognized as very challenging terrain for skull base surgeons. “Principles of Posterior Fossa Surgery,” recently published by Thieme, provides an in-depth review of this complex surgical region including detailed coverage of anatomy, pathology, imaging, disease-based management, and surgical approaches.

“The posterior fossa continues to be a daunting and gloomy corner of neurosurgery. In an era of radiosurgery, endovascular and endoscopic advances one still needs to know the bread and butter of posterior fossa surgery and I feel this book fulfills that niche. We have a cornucopia of contributions from the experts in the field and I think this will be a useful adjunct for teaching and for clinical practice." Anil Nanda, MD, FACS, Professor and Chairman, Department of Neurosurgery, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center

Focusing solely on the posterior fossa, this book fills an important gap in the literature that will enrich physicians’ understanding and knowledge for treating the many pathologies that can occur in this region of the brain.   

“This volume is a great contribution which every neurosurgeon, neurologist, and otolaryngologist should read and have on the bookshelf.”  Peter J. Jannetta, MD
