Neurosurgery Practice Questions and Answers


Essential prep for maintenance of certification exams as well as neurosurgery boards

Comprehensive, but small enough to take on rounds, the updated second edition of this popular neurosurgical board review provides a robust study companion for the American Board of Neurological Surgery (ABNS) primary examination. The text includes an impressive number of questions with concise and well-delineated explanations. Suitable for thorough board preparation, the question and answer format enables busy neurosurgical residents to efficiently practice, review, and improve upon their comprehension.

In addition to all the fundamental disciplines that are relevant to the practice of neurosurgery, this edition encompasses the latest advances in the field including endovascular approaches, minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques, and genetics. The diverse and challenging questions encourage the acquisition of factual knowledge and application of logic. This is the definitive ABNS study book because it most closely mimics the written board examination format.

Key Highlights

  • Multiple choice Q&A format provides highly effective study tool
  • Questions organized randomly, thereby simulating the written examination
  • Short explanations provide readers with a clear understanding of the correct answers

This is a must-have primer that will help neurosurgeons and neurosurgical residents study and pass the rigorous written board exam. Board-certified neurosurgeons will also find it a handy and useful resource to prepare for MOC examinations or to brush up on clinical know-how.

Neurotrauma Management for the Severely Injured Polytrauma Patient


         This text addresses many of the questions which occur when medical professionals of various disciplines interact and have different plans and interventions, each with its own valid scientific and/or experience-based rationale:  Questions involving tourniquet placement, ideal fluids and volumes for resuscitation, VTE prophylaxis and many other management considerations. Straightforward decisions in the patient with a single diagnosis often conflict when applied to the neurologically injured polytrauma patients.       

 Neurotrauma Management for the Severely Injured Polytrauma Patient answers as many of these questions as possible based on the current literature, vast experience with severe neurotrauma in the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the experience of trauma experts across the globe as well as proposes areas for future study where answers are currently less clear.

The Comprehensive Neurosurgery Board Preparation Book: Illustrated Questions and Answers


By (author): Paul V. Birinyi, Najib El Tecle, Eric Marvin, Carlos Zamora, Richard Prayson, Samer Elbabaa, Matt Pierson

Board certification by the American Board of Neurological Surgery is considered the gold standard for neurosurgeons practicing in the U.S. The ABNS primary examination requires many months of preparation, and passing it is both a significant accomplishment and integral component in becoming board certified. Contributions from current neurosurgical residents and seasoned practitioners infuse this book with a well-rounded perspective. Having been there and done that, the authors incorporated what they felt was missing from board review books when they sat for the exam – resulting in a “bucket list” study guide.

The review is organized by neurosurgical topic with 20 chapters equally divided among questions followed by answers. Starting with physiology and anatomy, each chapter methodically covers core topics including radiology, neurology, pathology/histology, ophthalmology, and more. The authors provide brief explanations and pearls that accompany each question, which provide a solid springboard for delving deeper into any given topic. The easy-to-follow format enables residents to partake in long study sessions or tackle just a question or two in the midst of a busy day of neurosurgical service.

Key Highlights

  • More than 1,300 questions reflect key concepts in the ABNS primary exam
  • Enhanced with more than 350 images, most in color, which reflect the computerized, image-rich format of the current exam
  • A full-length practice test at the end of the book mirrors the cadence and time constraints of the actual exam
  • Explanations of correct and incorrect answers facilitate learning and retaining vast amounts of material

This comprehensive board review book will help neurosurgical residents of all levels prepare thoroughly for the March exam. It is a one-stop self-assessment tool for any neurosurgeon who endeavors to attain and maintain ABNS certification.

Essentials of Cerebellum and Cerebellar Disorders: A Primer For Graduate Students


Essentials of the Cerebellum and Cerebellar Disorders is the first book of its kind written specifically for graduate students and clinicians. It is based on the 4-volume treatise, Handbook of the Cerebellum and Cerebellar Disorders (Springer, 2013), the definitive reference for scientists and neurologists in the field of cerebellar neurobiology. There have been fundamental advances in the basic science and clinical neurology of the cerebellum and its role in sensorimotor function and cognition. This monograph makes this large and expanding body of knowledge readily accessible to trainees and clinicians alike. The editors are world leaders in the field, and the chapters are authored by an international panel of experts drawn from ataxia clinics and cerebellar laboratories throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Essentials provides a solid grounding in the field of cerebellar research and ataxiology from cerebellar circuity to clinical practice, and it serves as a springboard to a deeper appreciation of both the principles and the complexities of cerebellar neurobiology. Clinicians are expected to have a deep appreciation of cerebellar disorders, not only in specialized ataxia clinics but also in adult and pediatric neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and neuropsychology practices, and in outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation settings. This book is an indispensable resource for students and practitioners navigating the evolving field of cerebellar motor and cognitive neurology. It also links to the more expansive Handbook for those who need to explore the topics in this monograph in greater depth.

Oxford Textbook of Neurorehabilitation (OTs in Clinical Neurology) (Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology)


Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing clinical impact because of an ageing population. During the last 20 years neurorehabilitation has developed from a discipline with little scientific background, separated from other medical centers, to a medical entity largely based on the principles of ‘evidenced based medicine’ with strong ties to basic research and clinical neurology. Today neurorehabilitation is still a ‘work in progress’ and treatment standards are not yet established for all aspects of neurorehabilitation. There are very few books that address contemporary neurorehabilitation from this perspective.

This volume moves the reader from theory to practice. It provides the reader with an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of neurorehabilitation, as well as a clear idea about how (and why) to approach treatment decisions in individual patients. These clinical recommendations are based on a mix of established evidence and clinical experience that the authors bring to bear on their topics.
