Neuroendoscopy of the Central Nervous System PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Neuroendoscopy of the Central Nervous System free pdf The introduction of the endoscope for neurosurgical procedures began with great promise. It was developed to provide a magnified anatomical view of the ventricular system in a minimally invasive manner. The early endoscopes were too primitive for the majority of procedures performed today. The advent of illumination, optical systems, and modern endoscopes allow the neurosurgeon to perform these previously inoperable cases. This book introduces all aspects of the modern endoscope system, physics of optics, and all the techniques of intracranial neuroendoscopy. This is a must-have book for all levels of surgeons, residents, operating room staff, and anyone who wants to learn about endoscopy and its potential applications.

He specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques such as endoscopy, and key-hole surgery. He is also a world authority on intramedullary spinal cord tumors and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring. He has received numerous awards both institutionally and nationally for his recognized work in the field of pediatric neurosurgery. His research interests are brainstem and spinal cord tumors in animal models. He has developed the only animal models for these diseases in attempts of finding a cure for these tumors. He is an active participant and member of the American and International Societies of Pediatric Neurosurgeons. James Conway, M.D., Ph.D. James E. Conway, M.D., Ph.D. received his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2001. He then completed his residency in neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2008. During his training he has concentrated his studies on neuro-oncology and has been an NIH funded neuro-oncology fellow. He is director of skull base neurosurgery and cerebrovascular neurosurgery at the Brain and Spine Institute at Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland. He specializes in neuro-oncology and skull base surgery. He is particularly interested in the applications of minimally invasive surgical techniques such as endoscopy to these fields. His research interests include anatomic studies of skull base approaches and their clinical applications. Laszlo Bognar, M.D. Laszlo Bognar, M.D., is Chairman and Director of the Neurosurgery Clinic and Gamma Unit at Debrecen University (DEOEC), Hungary- acts as an advisor and consultant neurosurgeon at the National Institute of Neurosurgery of Hungary- and is currently the President of the College of Hungarian Neurosurgeons.
