2021-2022 Basic and Clinical Science Course, Section 05: Neuro-Ophthalmology

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Ophthalmology  Comments Off on 2021-2022 Basic and Clinical Science Course, Section 05: Neuro-Ophthalmology
Aug 022022
 

Section 5 provides a symptom-driven approach to the diagnosis and treatment of major neuro-ophthalmic conditions. Accordingly, the emphasis is on the examination of the patient—both basic and extended—and the appropriate use of adjunctive studies to determine the status of the patient’s visual system as a whole.

Several chapters were substantially updated for this major revision, including the chapter on imaging in neuro-ophthalmology, which contains a new section devoted to interpreting optical coherence tomography results, and the chapter on functional neurological symptom (conversion) and related disorders, which includes an overview of the most recent diagnostic categorization of these disorders.

An overview of the anatomy of visual pathways is accompanied by numerous illustrations. For this edition, a significant number of videos (sample), activities on orbital anatomy and the visual pathways, and an animation demonstrating visual snow have been added to increase understanding. Both print and eBook users have access to the videos and activities.

Upon completion of Section 5, readers should be able to:

  1. Explain a symptom-driven approach to the assessment of patients with common neuro-ophthalmic clinical manifestations and state an appropriate differential diagnosis
  2. Describe a plan for the immediate management of patients with neuro-ophthalmic emergencies
  3. Describe eye movement disorders and their anatomical relationship to the ocular motor system
  4. Explain functional neurological symptom (conversion) disorder, factitious disorder, and malingering, and list the various clinical tests that are used to evaluate functional vision loss
  5. Describe the neuro-ophthalmic effects of the most common neurologic and systemic disorders affecting the visual and ocular motor systems

Rhoton’s Atlas of Head, Neck, and Brain: 2D and 3D Images Large type / Large print Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Rhoton’s Atlas of Head, Neck, and Brain: 2D and 3D Images Large type / Large print Edition
Jul 242022
 

Masterful 2D and 3D head, neck, and brain dissections provide unsurpassed insights into head, neck, and brain anatomy

 

An internationally renowned and beloved author, educator, brain anatomist, and neurosurgeon, Professor Albert Rhoton has a special place in medical history. He was revered by students and colleagues and is regarded as one of the fathers of modern microscopic neurosurgery. A driving principle in his anatomy lab was the simple phrase, “Every Second.” This was embraced in his philosophy that every second of every day, a patient’s life was improved by a surgeon assisted by the anatomic knowledge his lab helped elucidate and distribute.

 

Rhoton’s Atlas of Head, Neck, and Brain is the visually exquisite crowning achievement of Dr. Rhoton’s brilliant career and unwavering dedication to the intertwined pursuits of surgical anatomy and neurosurgery. The atlas reflects the unparalleled contributions Dr. Rhoton made to the contemporary understanding of neurosurgical anatomy. Dr. Peris-Celda, with the collaboration of an impressive cadre of international multidisciplinary experts, worked closely under Dr. Rhoton’s tutelage on this project. This book is the culmination of 5 years of work and experience gleaned from more than 40 years of surgical anatomy research and exquisite dissection techniques performed in Dr. Rhoton’s laboratory.

 

Special Features

 

Each anatomic dissection meticulously labeled with English and Latin descriptors for easy cross referencing with other resources.

Multiple views of the most complex regions of the head, neck, and brain provide a deeper understanding of anatomy.

More than 600 anatomical images systematically organized in four major sections: Osteology of the Head and Neck; Face and Neck; Ear, Nose, Pharynx, Larynx, and Orbit; and Neuroanatomy and Cranial Base.

Superb 2D images presented in a large printed format to optimize the viewing experience.

3D digital images fully realize the beauty of the dissections and enhance the learning process.

Specimens injected with colored silicone provide better visualization of arteries and veins.

Breathtakingly stunning, this atlas is certain to be a treasured reference for medical students, residents, and clinicians specializing in neurosurgery, facial plastic surgery, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, and craniofacial surgery for many years to come.

Essential Step-By-Step Techniques for Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Orthopedics  Comments Off on Essential Step-By-Step Techniques for Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery 1st Edition
Jul 242022
 

The ultimate resource for learning and mastering minimally invasive spine surgery techniques

An estimated 1.5 million instrumented spinal procedures are performed every year in the US. The majority of decompressions and about 50% of fusion procedures can be performed completely or partially using minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) techniques. The full potential of MISS techniques has yet to be realized. Essential Step-by-Step Techniques for Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery by internationally renowned MISS neurosurgeon Roger Härtl, spine-neurosurgeon Rodrigo Navarro-Ramirez, and an impressive group of global multidisciplinary contributors is the most comprehensive and detailed textbook written to date on this topic.

The foundation of the book is built on six interacting principles critical to surgical success, and MISS in particular: Target, Technology, Technique, Teaching and Training, Testing, and Talent. The text starts with an opening chapter on the definition of MISS and introduction of these principles. Fifty-six subsequent chapters provide a comprehensive discussion on how to utilize an MISS approach for a full spectrum of spinal pathologies using nuanced variations specific to the operating surgeon. To ensure readers are well versed in all aspects of MISS, these chapters include painstaking details on indications, contraindications, pathoanatomy, operating room set-up, step-by-step techniques, and postoperative management.

Key Highlights

  • Contributions from master spine surgeons across the world provide a balanced global perspective on mastering and incorporating diverse techniques into practice
  • Invaluable clinical pearls including tips/tricks and complication avoidance
  • High-quality images, figures, anatomic drawings, and imaging studies illustrate relevant anatomic approaches and corridors and delineate why anatomic mastery is critical to MISS
  • Twenty-five videos enhance the ability to learn and implement MISS approaches

 

This is a must-have resource for practicing spine surgeons interested in MISS who wish to learn the latest techniques from master surgeons and achieve optimal patient outcomes. The text and videos also provide a robust training tool for senior-level orthopaedic and neurosurgery residents and spine fellows.
