“I commend the editors for their careful perspective on the current state of neuromonitoring. The individual chapters provide excellent overviews of specific neuromonitoring tools and paradigms”

 

From the Foreword by J. Claude Hemphill III, MD, MAS, FNCS

 

While damage resulting from a primary injury to the brain or spine may be unavoidable, harm from secondary processes that cause further deterioration is not. This practical, clinical resource describes the latest strategies for monitoring the brain after acute injury. With a focus on individualization of treatment, the book examines the role of various monitoring techniques in limiting disability and potentiating patient recovery during the acute phase of brain injury. International experts in diagnosis and treatment of secondary injury explain in detail the current utilization, benefits, nuances, and risks for each commercially available monitoring device as well as approaches vital to the care of brain and spine injured patients. They cover foundational strategies for neuromonitoring implementation and analysis, including proper catheter placement, duration of monitoring, and treatment thresholds that indicate the need for clinical intervention. The book also addresses multimodality monitoring and common programmatic challenges, and offers guidance on how to set up a successful multimodal monitoring protocol in the ICU. Also included is a chapter on the key role of nurses in neuromonitoring and effective bedside training for troubleshooting and proper execution of treatment protocols. Numerous illustrations provide further illumination.

 

Key Features:

 

    • Presents state-of-the-art neuromonitoring techniques and clinical protocols for assessment and treatment

 

    • Emphasizes practical implementation for successful patient outcomes

 

    • Written by international experts at the forefront of neurocritical care monitoring

 

    • Provides a framework for practitioners who wish to individualize patient care with an emphasis upon the needs of the critically ill brain

 

  • Discusses the key role of nurses in neuromonitoring and effective bedside training for management and troubleshooting of devices

Mar 022021
 

Masterful 2D and 3D head, neck, and brain dissections provide unsurpassed insights into head, neck, and brain anatomy

An internationally renowned and beloved author, educator, brain anatomist, and neurosurgeon, Professor Albert Rhoton has a special place in medical history. He was revered by students and colleagues and is regarded as one of the fathers of modern microscopic neurosurgery. A driving principle in his anatomy lab was the simple phrase, “Every Second.” This was embraced in his philosophy that every second of every day, a patient’s life was improved by a surgeon assisted by the anatomic knowledge his lab helped elucidate and distribute.

Rhoton’s Atlas of Head, Neck, and Brain is the visually exquisite crowning achievement of Dr. Rhoton’s brilliant career and unwavering dedication to the intertwined pursuits of surgical anatomy and neurosurgery. The atlas reflects the unparalleled contributions Dr. Rhoton made to the contemporary understanding of neurosurgical anatomy. Dr. Peris-Celda, with the collaboration of an impressive cadre of international multidisciplinary experts, worked closely under Dr. Rhoton’s tutelage on this project. This book is the culmination of 5 years of work and experience gleaned from more than 40 years of surgical anatomy research and exquisite dissection techniques performed in Dr. Rhoton’s laboratory.

Special Features

  • Each anatomic dissection meticulously labeled with English and Latin descriptors for easy cross referencing with other resources.
  • Multiple views of the most complex regions of the head, neck, and brain provide a deeper understanding of anatomy.
  • More than 600 anatomical images systematically organized in four major sections: Osteology of the Head and Neck; Face and Neck; Ear, Nose, Pharynx, Larynx, and Orbit; and Neuroanatomy and Cranial Base.
  • Superb 2D images presented in a large printed format to optimize the viewing experience.
  • 3D digital images fully realize the beauty of the dissections and enhance the learning process.
  • Specimens injected with colored silicone provide better visualization of arteries and veins.

Breathtakingly stunning, this atlas is certain to be a treasured reference for medical students, residents, and clinicians specializing in neurosurgery, facial plastic surgery, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, and craniofacial surgery for many years to come.

Traumatic Brain Injury: Rehabilitation, Treatment, and Case Management, Fourth Edition 4th Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Traumatic Brain Injury: Rehabilitation, Treatment, and Case Management, Fourth Edition 4th Edition
Mar 012021
 

The fourth edition of this text constitutes a continuation of 20 years of coverage of traumatic brain injury, and broadens the discussion of acquired brain injury. Within TBI, the paradigm shift from an injury occurring at a point in time to a disease entity of a chronic nature is changing the discussion of diagnosis, management, treatment and outcome assessment. Disease specification that differentiates TBIs by the mechanism of injury, the exact nature of the injury, the extent of injury, presence of co-morbidities and their exact nature, gender, age, race, and genome are emerging as crucial. Disease differentiation has impacted diagnosis, treatment and outcome.

Functional MRI: Applications in Clinical Neurology and Psychiatry 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Functional MRI: Applications in Clinical Neurology and Psychiatry 1st Edition
Feb 272021
 

Functional imaging has the capability to reveal changes in the pathophysiology of tissues and organ systems, mapping the progression and severity of disease, uptake of drugs, and the recovery of tissues following trauma, disease episodes or surgery. In this authoritative new work, leading specialists in neurology and neuroimaging present an update on the MRI and PET investigation of diseases of the central nervous system. An insightful reference for anyone working in the field, this work discusses how these new technologies can be used to investigate the most important disorders encountered in clinical neurology and psychiatry, ranging from chronic progressive diseases such as Alzheimer’s, episodic disruptions of function as seen in epilepsy, and the subtle changes caused by drug dependency and abuse.
