No Comments

An ideal resource for board exam preparation, this review distills the essentials of neurosurgery in a user-friendly question and answer format. Divided into three main sections, this text presents a comprehensive collection of cases covering intracranial pathology, spinal and peripheral nerve pathology, and neurology. Each chapter opens by detailing the clinical presentation of a problem frequently encountered in everyday practice followed by a list of questions and answers designed to test the reader’s knowledge of diagnostic techniques, imaging, surgical indications, treatment options, potential complications, and outcomes.Highlights:

  • Contributions from internationally recognized authorities in the main subspecialties of neurosurgery, including neurosurgical oncology, skull base surgery, vascular neurosurgery, spine surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, peripheral nerve surgery, and epilepsy surgery
  • Succinct bullet-point format and consistent presentation in each chapter for rapid review of essential concepts
  • Detailed coverage of common and rare neurologic pathologies
  • More than 380 high-quality images, including 76 full-color illustrations that demonstrate important concepts
  • Valuable references to current evidence-based scientific data
  • This book is an indispensable tool for neurosurgeons, residents, and fellows preparing for their oral board or recertification examinations. With its highly accessible presentation, this book will also be a valuable refresher for clinicians and a useful reference for students preparing for rounds.

    No Comments

    The thoroughly updated Twelfth Edition of this classic retains the organization, practicality, and readability that makes Merritt’s Neurology one of the most popular texts among neurologists, primary care physicians, and residents reviewing for psychiatry or neurology boards. In 183 short chapters, the book provides the essentials clinicians need on symptoms/signs, diagnostic tests, and neurologic disorders of all etiologies.

    For this edition, Timothy A. Pedley, MD, Chair of the Department of Neurology at Columbia University, joins Dr. Rowland as co-editor. Coverage includes separate chapters on autism, autosomal recessive ataxias, and autosomal dominant ataxias, and new chapters on endovascular neuroradiology, parkinsonian syndromes, Lewy body dementias, frontotemporal dementia, vanishing white matter, vasculitis, normal pressure hydrocephalus, neuromyelitis optica, Kennedy disease, spinal muscular atrophy, complex regional pain syndrome, disorders of DNA translation, the immune restoration inflammatory syndrome (IRIS), and Hashimoto encephalopathy. Most chapters have been updated to reflect advances in molecular genetics.
