This is a practical operative atlas which covers the main techniques used in skull base surgery. The text is comprehensive and illustrates micro surgery on all areas of the skull base (ie anterior, middle posterior and lateral). The content aims to provide a systematic description of the main techniques on how to approach skull base disorders and emphasises teamwork between the neurosurgeon and the ENT specialist. The four approaches to skull base surgery include: definition and indications; techniques; complications and post-operative care. Each chapter is illustrated with line drawings clearly defining the operative steps to be followed. In specific chapters detail of the experiences of neurosurgeons such as L.N. Sekhar of the Center for Cranial Bae Surgery, Pittsburgh, M. Desgorges in Paris and V. Riemens in Bordeaux are included. The anatomical and clinical sections were contributed by O.Sterkers (Paris) and D.Portmann (Bordeaux); the section on diagnostic radiology of tumours was contributed by Jacqueline Vignaud (Paris); and that on reconstruction after skull base surgery by P.Boudard. Finally, the section on interventional neuroradiology was written by J.Piton of Bordeaux.
