An authoritative and comprehensive review of the most important clinical issues facing critically ill neurologic and neurosurgical patients. The authors provide pertinent basic, clinical, diagnostic, and management guidelines for all the conditions commonly encountered in the neurocritical care unit, including the management of autonomic disorders that require critical care, postoperative management, and endovascular treatment. The authors also discuss the latest developments in the monitoring of different body systems, emphasizing the management of cardiorespiratory complications and other medical conditions that may threaten the patient’s life. Also detailed are the concepts of intracranial physiology and current neuromonitoring techniques, subjects whose understanding is basic to effective management of critically ill neurologic patients. Numerous tables, figures, diagrams, and radiographs simplify and explicate both the diagnostic and therapeutic processes.

Spontaneous Subarachnoid Haemorrhage: Well-known and New Approaches

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Spontaneous Subarachnoid Haemorrhage: Well-known and New Approaches
Nov 302018
 

Hippocrates of Cos was one of the first who described spontaneous subarachnoid haemorrhage without special knowledge about neuro-anatomy or neuro-physiology. This haemorrhage represented a life ending event of fate for him. Inventions like computed tomography or angiography gave better insight into the patterns of this life threatening disease. Progress in management was developed by new cranial approaches, new generations of clips and better intensive care modalities. The latter could be represented by the increasing use of nimodipine or the integration of the early sealing mode of an intracranial aneurysm after rupture within 72 hours. Endovascular therapies revolutionised aneurysm management, strengthening the interdisciplinary team-work of neuroradiologists, anesthesists and neurosurgeons. These changes in the past lead to a significant reduction in mortality, producing more survivors who suffer different stages of morbidity.
Morbidity in this context is represented by physical handicaps and dependencies, but also mental, emotional and cognitive impairments. However, there are still some challenges to manage, like the cerebral vasospasm or delayed cerebral ischemia including spreading depolarisations, (prolonged) hydrocephalus, and cognitive long-term morbidity that may complicate a smooth and easy reintegration into daily life.
Nevertheless, dealing with this long history and the aforementioned challenges, there is still the opinion that there is stagnation in the progress within this field of study. Scientists lack new ideas for surgical procedures or clips, endovascular devices do not always represent safe options, and medication providing protection for vasospasms still remains unknown.
This book provides basic knowledge concerning this interesting disease pattern and introduces more intensive work in the field. It is written by a team of individuals from multiple disciplines that represent different parts of therapy management. The literature used is recent and promotes intensive private or independent study. The intended audiences for this book include students, residents, registrars, assistant physicians, and all physicians from neighbouring disciplines

Epilepsy Surgery and Intrinsic Brain Tumor Surgery: A Practical Atlas

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Surgery  Comments Off on Epilepsy Surgery and Intrinsic Brain Tumor Surgery: A Practical Atlas
Nov 252018
 

This book provides a comprehensive and practical guide for the safe and efficient management of patients with intrinsic brain tumors and medically intractable epilepsy. It presents in an easily understandable way the preoperative evaluation of these patients, starting from the clinical interpretation of conventional anatomical MR imaging and analyses the clinical significance of newer MR based imaging techniques such as diffusion and perfusion imaging.
It demonstrates with clarity the role of MR spectroscopy and fractional anisotropy and diffusion tensor imaging in the preoperative assessment of these patients and how this data can be incorporated into the surgical planning.

This book is aimed at neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neurologists, and epileptologists, and may also be of interest to neuropsychologists, neurophysiologists, radiation oncologists, and medical physicists.

The Heart of the Brain : The Hypothalamus and Its Hormones

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Heart of the Brain : The Hypothalamus and Its Hormones
Nov 252018
 

How hormonal signals in one small structure of the brain—the hypothalamus—govern our physiology and behavior.

As human beings, we prefer to think of ourselves as reasonable. But how much of what we do is really governed by reason? In this book, Gareth Leng considers the extent to which one small structure of the neuroendocrine brain—the hypothalamus—influences what we do, how we love, and who we are.

The hypothalamus contains a large variety of neurons. These communicate not only through neurotransmitters, but also through peptide signals that act as hormones within the brain. While neurotransmitter signals tend to be ephemeral and confined by anatomical connectivity, the hormone signals that hypothalamic neurons generate are potent, wide-reaching, and long-lasting. Leng explores the evolutionary origins of these remarkable neurons, and where the receptors for their hormone signals are found in the brain. By asking how the hypothalamic neurons and their receptors are regulated, he explores how the hypothalamus links our passions with our reason. The Heart of the Brain shows in an accessible way how this very small structure is very much at the heart of what makes us human.

The power of neuroplasticity for pastoral and spiritual care

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The power of neuroplasticity for pastoral and spiritual care
Nov 242018
 

Studies in neuroscience demonstrate that a focus on mindfulness meditation and contemplative spiritual practice has the capacity to increase our non-anxious awareness and significantly lower our stress. Not only is this finding of immediate importance for pastoral counselors and psychotherapists, it will even necessitate a paradigm shift in the way that pastoral and spiritual practitioners approach the general care of souls. The starting point for such a paradigm shift is an acknowledgement of the built-in negativity bias of the brain, and how certain beliefs and theological views may inadvertently reinforce the bias to the detriment of individuals and faith communities. Once necessary for human survival, the ingrained bias can often be excessive for today’s world, resulting in negatively disproportionate assessments of life events and human relationships. To balance the neural predisposition toward negativity and anxious awareness, it is necessary for pastoral and spiritual caregivers, and those in their care, to cultivate a regular contemplative-meditational practice.The Power of Neuroplasticity for Pastoral and Spiritual Care focuses on the groundbreaking finding of contemporary neuroscience—that the brain is built for change across the entire lifespan. It is designed to make the research accessible to and relevant for those engaged in the work of pastoral and spiritual care in order to help clients and congregants effect lasting and transformative changes in the mind and brain. Through the regular practice of contemplative prayer and meditation, we can literally calm the stress region of the brain in order to live less anxiously and experience more fully the peace and joy of the present moment. The introduction of mindfulness- and acceptance-based counseling approaches will provide pastoral and spiritual practitioners with an important therapeutic framework to situate their work, from which they can make more informed and effective interventions geared toward using the mind to change the brain.
