These proceeding cover new trends presented at the IV Congress of the International Society of Reconstructive Neurosurgery (ISRN), 2015. ISRN is an “open” multidisciplinary society that deals with advances in spine and peripheral-nerve reconstructive surgery, central nervous system revascularization (surgical, radio interventional), neuromodulation, bioengineering and transplantation, which are the latest tools used to promote reconstruction, restoration and rehabilitation.

This book provides detailed practical guidance on the management of acute ischemic stroke in the clinical settings encountered in daily practice. Real-life cases are used to depict a wide range of clinical scenarios and to highlight significant aspects of management of ischemic stroke. In addition, diagnostic and therapeutic protocols are presented and helpful decision-making algorithms are provided that are specific to the different professionals involved in delivery of acute stroke care and to differing types of hospital facility. The coverage is completed by the inclusion of up-to-date scientific background information relevant to diagnosis and therapy. Throughout, the approach adopted is both practical and multidisciplinary. The book will be of value for all practitioners involved in the provision of acute stroke care, and also for medical students.
This book is perhaps most relevant to interventional neuroradiologists, interventional neurologists, or endovascular neurosurgeons looking for a quick and easy read, and the organization of each chapter allows for just that, as chapters do have a heavy emphasis on illustrations, cadaveric dissections, in vivo dissections, and angiograms. — AJNR
The book is easy to read and digest and can be read from start to finish without difficulty. However, it may be most useful when read a chapter or two at a time to supplement one’s knowledge prior to a vascular rotation or a case. — World Neurosurgery
Four master neurosurgeons bring a wealth of collective neurosurgical and neuroendovascular experience to this remarkable reference book, which melds a detailed anatomical atlas with clinical applications. The authors provide case reviews and pearls that demonstrate how anatomy impacts clinical practice decisions for aneurysm, stroke, and skull-base disease.
Comprehensive variations of the vasculature at the Circle of Willis, cortical branches, and secondary arteries
Range and average measurements of the most critical vessels
Hundreds of color photographs elucidate precise anatomical cadaver dissections
Exquisite illustrations by Paul H. Dressel
This richly illustrated, comprehensive anatomical resource is a must have for neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and neurologists. Whether you are a practicing clinician or resident, reading this book will greatly expand your “vision” and sharpen your perception.
Part of the Drugs in series, this book provides an easily accessible pocket-sized guide to the use of medications when treating patients with neurological ailments. Drugs in Neurology covers the breadth of medications used in modern neurology, including each drug’s indications, contra-indications, side-effects and important interactions. The underlying pharmacology also feature (where known). Practical aspects related to prescribing and therapeutic drug monitoring are covered and based on the most up-to-date evidence-based guidance. Each drug monograph contains a small section drawing on the wisdom of the senior contributors of each chapter with regards to using the medication.
Part of the “What Do I Do Now?” series, Cerebrovascular Disease a case-based approach to cover common and important topics in the examination, investigation, and management of stroke, embolism, thrombosis, hemorrhage, and other critical presentations of cerebrovascular disease. Each chapter provides a discussion of the diagnosis, key points to remember, and selected references for further reading. For this edition, all cases and references have been updated and new cases have been added including: Ischemic stroke in cancer, posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), primary angiitis of the central nervous system, symptomatic spinal vascular malformation, anoxic brain injury, and vascular dementia. Cerebrovascular Disease is an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases which clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients. The volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader’s ability to answer the question, “What do I do now?”
