Intracranial Endoscopic Neurosurgery

No Comments

In one book, the practitioner can obtain a solid foundation in the field
of endoscopy as practiced by neurosurgeons. Included is a review of the physics
and instrumentation of neuroendoscopic systems, comprehensive coverage of the
anatomy upon which neuroendoscopic procedures are performed, and illustrations
and text describing how endoscopic surgery can be used as an alternative to
traditional surgery for such complex procedures as hematoma evacuation, abscess,
and third ventriculocisternostomies. Avoiding and managing frequently
encountered complications are thoroughly discussed.

Intracranial Endoscopic Neurosurgery contains:

  • The physics of neuroendoscopic systems and the
    instrumentation
  • Neuroendoscopes and instruments
  • Access to the ventricular system
  • Anatomy for neurosurgical endoscopic procedures
  • The use of endoscopes for shunt placement
  • Third ventriculostomy
  • Neuroendoscopic treatment of arachnoid cysts
  • Endoscopic removal of colloid cysts
  • Endoscopic management of complex hydrocephalus
  • Endoscopy-Assisted craniotomy and microsurgery
  • Endoscopic transsphenoidal resection of stellar lesions
