Second Edition Opens Anatomical Window Into Complex Vasculature of the Brain and Cranial Base

New York, NY, November 07, 2015 --( Nothing is more striking in neurovascular anatomy than the brain’s myriad varieties of branching and configuration of vessels. The illustrations and figures in "Vasculature of the Brain and Cranial Base, Second Edition," recently published by Thieme, are meant to expand the “vision” of the neurosurgeon in the surgical field and sharpen the perception of the neuroradiologist, neuroendovascular interventionist and neurologist.

A new neuroendovascular correlative section at the end of each anatomical chapter, reflecting the vast neuroendovascular experience of Drs. Siddiqui and Mocco, adds a clinical dimension to this anatomical atlas.

- Comprehensive variations of the vasculature at the Circle of Willis, cortical branches, and secondary arteries
- Range and average measurements of the most critical vessels
- Hundreds of color photographs elucidate precise anatomical cadaver dissections
- Exquisite illustrations by Paul H. Dressel

This richly illustrated, comprehensive anatomical resource is a must have for neurosurgeons, neuroendovascular surgeon, neuroradiologists, and neurologists.
