New York, NY, March 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- In the neurosurgical world, revascularization is an important component of treatment. “Color Atlas of Cerebral Revascularization,” recently published by Thieme, focuses on cerebral bypass techniques pioneered by leading surgeons at the world-renowned Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. Each procedure is presented with intraoperative photographs and exquisite anatomical illustrations to help surgeons master the complex microsurgical anatomy and subtle surgical technique used in managing the potential onset and condition of stroke and other causes of cerebral ischemia.
“This atlas is a testament that bypass skills are as important today as ever. With the ability to revascularize virtually any portion of the brain, a significant number of otherwise untreatable aneurysms and tumors can be managed successfully. Although revascularization for atherosclerotic disease is uncommon, the many indications as depicted in this book emphasize the continued need for the vascular microneurosurgeon to acquire and maintain these skills. These skills spill over into all our other operative procedures, ultimately to the great benefit of all our patients.” -- Robert F. Spetzler, MD
This comprehensive atlas is an ideal reference for practicing neurosurgeons, neurosurgical residents, and interventional neuroradiologists, and it will be a relevant volume in their medical library for years to come.
