Cerebral revascularization has significantly benefitted from technological advances that allow safer, more effective, and better indicated procedures.
This book covers the history and current standards in the field and attempts to provide a comprehensive overview.
Neurosurgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional neuroendovascular surgeons, and neurologists are the main audience. The author is a well-known authority in the field and over 80 authors contribute the 32 chapters.
The book is divided into five sections that encompass all nuances of the physiological variants, imaging, and history of the field, leading readers into progressively deeper aspects of cerebral revascularization, which include EC-IC bypass techniques, revascularization for cerebral ischemia, treatment of giant aneurysms, and as an aid in treating skull base tumors. In every instance, there is a complete discussion of the rationale for cerebral revascularization, including cerebral blood flow studies, clinical evaluation, and state-of-the-art radiological techniques used in determining the best surgical candidates.
This is an excellent book on cerebral revascularization. It is an essential component of any academic neurosurgical library.
