9783131010926: Atlas of Microsurgery of the Lateral Skull Base

In this completely revised and enlarged new edition, Professor Sanna and
his team provide systematic demonstrations of the major lateral skull base
approaches, drawing from 20 years of experience of the eminent Gruppo Otologico
located in Piacenza, Italy.



Key features:



  • Introductory chapters on the general principles,
    instrumentation, and special considerations that characterize this type of
    surgery
  • Discussion of the radiology of skull base lesions as it
    relates to surgery, with particular emphasis on findings that can influence the
    choice of surgical approach, alter the course of surgery, or affect the
    prognosis
  • Actual demonstrations of the anatomy seen during the
    different surgical approache -- standard anatomy textbooks fail to address this
    issue
  • For each approach, step-by-step descriptions of the
    surgical technique and numerous clinical cases representing the most commonly
    encountered lesions so that the reader receives a comprehensive understanding of
    how to perform the approach and what to expect during surgery
  • Pearls and Pitfalls at the end of most chapters
    gathered from the vast number of cases managed throughout the years by the
    authors and included to help others avoid mistakes
  • Over 1300 superb and instructive illustrations
    consisting of photographs of live surgery and cadaver dissections, radiologic
    images, and drawings


This essential text also covers other must-know, highly advanced topics, including:



  • Combined approaches providing the necessary route to
    manage certain extensive skull base tumors that represent particular challenges
  • Management strategies for different skull base lesions
    (e.g., surgical vs. nonsurgical management, the different factors that determine
    the choice of the surgical approach, cases that are managed conservatively or
    with radiosurgery)
  • Management of the internal carotid artery in skull base
    surgery, including the new technique of using stents to facilitate tumor
    dissection from the internal carotid artery



This outstanding surgical atlas is invaluable for any surgeon who seeks not only to master the different surgical approaches but also to grasp the real essence of skull base surgery.



Dr. Sanna is part of The Grupppo Otologico, a world-renowned specialist center for the diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of diseases of the ear, skull base, facial nerve, head and neck, and paranasal sinuses. More information is available on the group's website, www.gruppootologico.it/eng.

Product Description:

Recent advances in skull base surgery are revolutionizing the field. Besides the critical location issue, the major problem in lateral skull base surgery is understanding the complex relations between the different structures of the region, requiring a deep knowledge of anatomy. Here is a new edition of the first full-color atlas to present a variety of step-by-step approaches to the temporal bone and lateral skull base. Each sequence is illustrated with vivid color of cadaver specimens (more than 350 in all) that show the extradural and intradural parts, including cerebral vessels and nerves. A unique demonstration of three-dimensional anatomy of the surgical field as seen by the surgeon adds to the realistic quality of the book. Indications, hints, and pitfalls, gained through the authors' actual clinical experience, complete this masterful work.

Review:

This beautiful atlas reflects the collaberative effort of the neurotologist, the neurosurgeon, and the neuroradiologist and embodies the philosophy of this preeminent Italian group towards the management of complex lesions of the lateral skull base...Each chapter...has an important subheading on pearls and pitfalls, which is illuminating and particularly useful...The chapter on decision making is a must-read..The Atlas is a reliable map of the lateral skull base and is profusely illustrated with surgical color photographs. The authords have made a valiant effort to pack as much information as possible into a book that runs 391 pages. They have succeeded...Recommended...to all practitioners of skull base surgery. For one starting out in the field, it will help crystalize fundamental concepts, and for the expert, it will help underscore that which is important.--Otology & NeurotologyThis atlas is probably the only available oeuvre covering the whole width of surgical aspects of the lateral skull base in such detail and comprehensiveness. Central European NeurosurgeryThis is the second edition of the masterpiece book of Mario Sanna and his co-workers of the Piacenza team. Based on more than 20 years of surgical experience, this publication delivers a step-by-step precise description of different operative procedures that have to be performed in anatomically complex regions. It offers a comprehensive understanding of the operative choice and decision making, how to perform the surgical approach and the tips and pitfalls for each of them. Superb intraoperative pictures, excellent drawings and correlations with CT and MRI images...Recommended for surgeons who already have an experience in otology and microsurgery.-- B-ENT
