This volume of ADVANCES IN NEUROSURGERY presents the original texts of 60 papers delivered at the 33rd annual meeting of the German Neuro surgical Society held in Kiel from May 16th to 20th, 1982. These papers represent a selection from some 162 papers submitted and 96 actually given. The selection was made by the society's programme committee, of which Professor W. J. BOCK, Professor H. DIETZ and Professor W. GROTE are also members. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to them for their untiring cooperation. The scientific programme dealt with three main themes: 1. Acute, non-traumatic intracranial hemorrhages, a subject that has always been of importance for neurological surgeons since the ana tomist Giovanni Battista MORGAGNI in 1791 first described in detail the clinical picture and the pathological and anatomical causes of a brain hemorrhage he had observed in his servant. Indeed, at our 31st annual meeting in Erlangen in 1980 "Timing Problems in Sub arachnoid Hemorrhages" was one of the main topics of discussion. For this year's meeting a cooperative study in which 27 university and hospital departments of neurosurgery participated enabled us to look into the causes and the diagnostic and therapeutic measures involved in a great number of cases of intracranial hemorrhage.

Meningiomas, by M. Necmettin Pamir, MD, Peter M. Black, MD, PhD, and Rudolf Fahlbusch, MD, presents current and comprehensive guidance on this most common, yet clinically challenging type of brain tumor. Written and edited by the world’s most prominent brain tumor neurosurgeons, it helps you to not only determine the type and location of the tumor, but also the most ideal surgical approach to provide your patients with the best outcomes. An extensive collection of surgical photographs covers unique and original cases, while discussions of pre-surgical techniques and approaches emphasize decision making with the help of all imaging modalities and analysis of symptoms and patient history. Expert Consult functionality enhances your reference power with convenient online access to the complete text and illustrations from the book, along with videos that depict surgical techniques in real time. Provides access to the complete text online—fully searchable, along with all of the illustrations downloadable for your personal presentations, and real-time surgical videos covering microscopic extended endonasal approach to suprasellar meningioma, and more, at Covers today’s full range of management methods, including adjuvant therapies, providing you with the best strategies for obtaining optimal outcomes. Features the work of the world’s most prominent brain tumor neurosurgeons—a completely international authorship—bringing you the best procedures globally. Offers an in-depth section on surgical methods and approaches based upon tumor location, to help you in the decision-making process. Includes coverage of spinal meningiomas including pre-diagnosis symptoms and outcomes.

Textbook of Epilepsy Surgery covers all of the latest advances in the surgical management of epilepsy. The book provides a thorough understanding of epileptogenic mechanisms in etiologically different types of epilepsy and explains neuronavigation systems. It discusses new neuroimaging techniques, new surgical strategies, and more aggressive surgical approaches in cases with catastrophic epilepsies. The contributors also analyze the improved statistics of surgical outcome in different epilepsy types. The book follows a systematic approach to the diagnostic evaluation of patients who are candidates for epilepsy surgery. It first discusses the general principles of surgery, and then describes the presurgical evaluation according to the six zones (symptomatogenic, irritative, ictal onset, epileptic lesion, functional deficit, and epileptogenic zone). This series of chapters concludes with the description of the Epilepsy Surgery Management Meeting, an essential and indispensable part of the surgical evaluation. The book next incorporates detailed discussions of the cortical mapping techniques and the numerous surgical techniques. This is followed by the post-surgical medical management and a discussion of the surgical outcome. Finally, selected case studies are presented, along with protocols for the storage and processing of brain tissue for molecular studies. This definitive textbook is an invaluable reference for neurologists, neurosurgeons, epilepsy specialists, and those interested in epilepsy and its surgical treatment.
