Neurosurgery Primary Examination Review: High Yield Questions, Answers, Diagrams, and Tables by Amgad S. Hanna addresses the knowledge gaps in currently existing neurosurgical board study guides. It is based on a collection of highly effective practice questions previously administered to neurosurgical residents at the University of Wisconsin. Each chapter covers two to three topics with 60 multiple choice and matching questions and only one correct answer. The reader-friendly content and layout make it easy to organize and review the complex subject matter in preparation for the ABNS written exam or for educational review.
Dissection in the anatomical laboratory is a mandatory component of training for neurosurgeons. Acquisition of highly technical skills is a long and arduous task, requiring knowledge of complex surgical anatomy and basic steps for single surgical approaches. Unlike dense textbooks, Operative Cranial Neurosurgical Anatomy by Filippo Gagliardi, Cristian Gragnaniello, Pietro Mortini, and Anthony Caputy provides readers with a user-friendly tutorial on cranial approaches, clearly delineated through concise written instructions and serial images.
Pediatric radiology provides an opportunity to care for perhaps the most vulnerable patients of all, from prenatal life through adolescence. Pediatric Imaging, Second Edition by Richard Gunderman and Lisa Delaney features 100 new cases along with two board-type multiple-choice questions for each. A wide spectrum of cases focusing on radiology in children – from basic to advanced – are strategically designed to increase a resident's knowledge and provide robust exam preparation. For maximum ease of self-assessment, each case begins with the clinical presentation on the right-hand page; study that and then turn the page for imaging findings, differential diagnoses with the definitive diagnosis, essential facts, pearls and pitfalls, and more.
Significant advances have been made in minimally invasive spine (MIS) surgery approaches, techniques, and innovative technologies. By preserving normal anatomic integrity during spine surgery, MIS approaches enable spine surgeons to achieve improved patient outcomes, including faster return to normal active lifestyles and reduced revision rates. Exposing only the small portion of the spine responsible for symptoms via small ports or channels, requires a deep understanding of spinal anatomy and spinal pathophysiology. Building on the widely acclaimed first edition, An Anatomic Approach to Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, Second Edition, provides an expanded foundation of knowledge to master minimally invasive spine surgery.
The third Edition is fully updated with cutting edge topics reflecting the latest advances in the field. New chapters include hearing and vestibular issues in children, state-of-the-art testing methods for neonates, and longitudinal studies on cochlear implant technology. Renowned experts Jane R. Madell, Carol Flexer and rising stars Jace Wolfe and Erin C. Schafer provide meticulous discussion on all aspects of pediatric audiology – from underlying pathology and testing to medical, therapeutic, and surgical treatments. Pearls and best practices from a cadre of esteemed experts focus on achieving optimal patient outcomes.
Top 3 Differentials in Vascular and Interventional Radiology – A Case Review by David D. Gover is one in a series of radiology case books mirroring the format of the highly acclaimed O'Brien classic, Top 3 Differentials in Vascular and Interventional Radiology – A Case Review. Image-guided procedures used in vascular radiology, such as angiography, are presented concisely, with easy-to-remember, high-yield information.
This revised fourth edition of Gordon and Nivatvongs' Principles and Practice of Surgery for the Colon, Rectum, and Anus edited by David Beck, Steven Wexner, and Janice Rafferty strikes a perfect balance between evidence-based medicine, in-depth details, and clinical pearls. The result is a highly engaging and authoritative tome in the grand tradition of Philip Gordon and Santhat Nivatvongs. Building on the widely acclaimed previous editions' reputation for superb quality and reader-friendliness, the fourth edition includes contributions from an expanded cadre of internationally known experts.
This second edition of RadCases: Thoracic Imaging from Carlos Restrepo and Steven Zangan presents 100 differential diagnoses covering the span of lung and thorax disease states, from common conditions such as pneumonia and ARDS to rare conditions like Mounier-Kuhn syndrome and DIPNECH. This edition includes important variations of prior cases, updated diagnostic and management strategies, and new pathological entities. Cases are strategically designed to simulate pathologies encountered in day-to-day practice, increase knowledge, and provide robust exam preparation. For maximum ease of self-assessment, each case begins with the clinical presentation on the right-hand page; study that and then turn the page for CT and chest radiograph findings, differential diagnoses with the definitive diagnosis, essential facts, pearls and pitfalls, and more.
Differential Diagnosis in Neurology and Neurosurgery is ideal as a quick reference in your daily practice, or as an exam preparation guide. This wealth of easily accessed information makes it invaluable to experienced practitioners (especially ER physicians) and to novices alike.
Neurological surgery is a complex, highly selective specialty. For medical students and residents, navigating a huge array of neurosurgical information can be overwhelming. Neurosurgery Fundamentals by Nitin Agarwal is a portable reference enabling swift assimilation of neurosurgical care essentials. The book starts with a roadmap to a career in neurosurgery. It concludes with Advice from the Masters, featuring invaluable resources and insights from prominent neurosurgeons.
Now in a revised and expanded fourth edition, this exquisitely illustrated atlas by renowned experts, provides you with the cognitive tools to visualize and interpret CT and MR images of the cranium. In exacting detail, the normal structures of the brain, as seen in the three orthogonal planes (axial, sagittal, and coronal), are revealed with unparalleled accuracy, making the volume a highly useful aid in daily practice, for teaching, and to provide an anatomic baseline for research on the brain.
This unique guide takes an in-depth look at trigger point therapy. Divided into two sections – Functional Muscle Chains and Trigger Points and Their Treatment – this book combines detailed theory with tried and practical techniques.
Known for providing high-quality chemical information in the field of organic synthesis, Thieme Chemistry has provided approximately 700,000 distinct structures to PubChem – the open chemistry database at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In addition to the structural information, the upload includes more than 1,200,000 distinct links from chemicals to the Thieme Chemistry journals and online product portfolio, enlarging the number of chemical structures in PubChem with links to the scientific literature.
Advances in fluorescence-guided surgery (FGS) have resulted in a paradigm shift in neurosurgical approaches to neuro-oncological and cerebrovascular pathologies. Edited by two of the foremost authorities on the topic, Fluorescence-Guided Neurosurgery: Neuro-oncology and Cerebrovascular Applications encompasses the depth and breadth of this groundbreaking, still nascent technology. The book reflects significant contributions made by world renowned neurosurgeons Constantinos Hadjipanayis, Walter Stummer, and esteemed contributors on the growing uses of 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) and other FGS agents.
