)-- “Intracranial Aneurysm Surgery: Basic Principles and Techniques,” recently published by Thieme, is a highly approachable and user-friendly reference that takes a step-by-step approach to explaining the techniques of aneurysm surgery. Its straightforward format makes it appealing to all levels, from trainees to seasoned practitioners.
"Even as endovascular techniques become increasingly more popular, intracranial aneurysm surgery remains a critical component of the neurosurgeon’s skill set. The goal of this book is to describe to those surgeons, especially young practitioners early in their aneurysm experience, a series of basic, practical operative principles and techniques that have proven successful in the management of the vast majority of these vascular lesions," says author Duke Samson, MD, Professor and Lois C.A. and Darwin E. Smith Distinguished Chairman of the Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.
Mastering the approaches presented in “Intracranial Aneurysm Surgery: Basic Principles and Techniques” will not only help young surgeons learn their craft from highly respected specialists, but will also expand their technical abilities and understanding of the breadth of neurosurgical aneurysm pathology.
