Craniosynostosis, the early fusion of skull sutures, is a serious abnormality of infancy and childhood. Because there are many forms of the condition, both isolated and syndromatic, proper diagnosis is essential before treatment could be carried out. Not only has surgical treatment advanced in recent years, but basic knowledge of sutural and molecular biology of craniosynostosis syndromes has recently come to light. Because dramatic changes have occurred in the field, particularly in molecular biology, this new edition has been rewritten and new chapters have been added on the growth of sutures, craniofacial surgery, and epidemiology and clinical correlations. The molecular basis of craniosynostosis, with emphasis on fibroblast growth receptors, and recent research on postnatal growth and the craniofacial complex, will be discussed in detail. Many new syndromes have been delineated the established conditions have been redefined.
As a result of technological improvements, neuroendoscopy is now used in the treatment of many more patients, enabling the performance of previously unavailable operations with low complication rates and rapid patient recovery. This book presents the distilled experience of world experts in this evolving field. Current applications in a wide variety of settings are explained in detail and likely future developments are identified. In addition, the available neuroendoscopic instruments are reviewed and the results of international trials and collaborative studies, presented. This book will fully acquaint the reader with the breadth and depth of available neuroendoscopy techniques and their impressive therapeutic potential. It should serve as the reference book on neuroendoscopy for the next 10 years.

Sekhar, and Neil Kitchen, provides a clear, superbly illustrated introduction to all aspects of neurosurgery–from general principles to specific techniques. Thorough updates from leading authors ensure that you’ll stay abreast of the latest advances in every area of neurosurgery, including pre- and post-operative patient care, neuroradiology, pediatric neurosurgery, neurovascular surgery, trauma surgery, spine surgery, oncology, pituitary adenomas, cranial base neurosurgery, image-guided neurosurgery, treatment of pain, epilepsy surgery, and much more.
CRANIOFACIAL SURGERY offers a comprehensive update on most aspects of craniofacial surgery. It covers not only the latest surgical techniques for craniofacial anomalies, but also the basic science -- including genetics and molecular biology -- behind these anomalies. Most importantly, this resource features a multi-disciplinary approach, with experts in the areas of plastic surgery and neurosurgery collaborating to provide a more complete view of the management of patients with craniofacial anomalies. Features authors and contributors who are recognized leaders in their respective fields, with multiple experiences and viewpoints - providing the reader with both authoritative and comprehensive information Covers both time-tested and the latest innovative surgical techniques Basic science chapters emphasize and highlight: skull and facial development (embryology and morphogenesis), genetics of common anomalies, and the latest advances and techniques in molecular biology as they pertain to craniofacial anomalies Covers the fields of embryology, genetics, molecular biology, biomaterials, and biomechanics since advances in treatment are evolving from macroscopic manipulation to microscopic Clinical chapters emphasize and highlight: collaboration between multiple specialties (plastic surgery, neurosurgery, radiology) necessary for successful treatment and the latest technological advances and biomaterials used in craniofacial surgery, including bone substitutes, the latest fixation techniques, endoscopic surgery techniques and distraction osteogenesis techniques Features extensive illustrations of anomalies and techniques to aid in understanding concepts and treatments
This comprehensive resource provides in-depth information to help you perfect your oral and maxillofacial surgical technique and provide state-of-the-art care for your patients. The full scope of the field is represented with up-to-date, evidence-based coverage of every surgical procedure performed today. Volume I: Anesthesia and Pain Control, Dentoalveolar Surgery, Practice Management, Implant Surgery brings you authoritative coverage of office-based procedures, including extractions, implants, and biopsies.

Neuroanesthesia: A Problem-Based Learning Approach provides an up-to-date and comprehensive review of the neuroanesthesia subspecialty. Its problem-based format incorporates a pool of practical, multiple-choice questions for self-assessment. Each of its 29 case-based chapters is accompanied by 10 questions and answers, accessible online in a full practice exam. The cases presented are also unique, as each chapter starts with a case description, usually a compilation of several actual cases; it then branches out through case-based questions, to increasingly complex situations. This structure is designed to create an authentic experience that mirrors that of an oral board examination. The discussion sections that follow offer a comprehensive approach to the chapter's subject matter, thus creating a modern, complete, and up-to-date medical review of that topic. This book is equally a solid reference compendium of neuroanesthesia topics and a comprehensive review to assist the general practitioner both in day-to-day practice and during preparation for certification exams. Its problem-based format makes it an ideal resource for the lifelong learner and the modern realities of education.
A practical guide to best practice in managing the perioperative care of pediatric neurosurgical patients.
This book, edited by a leading pioneer of craniofacial distraction, summarizes the progress achieved in the field in a way that will serve the needs of the practicing clinician. All components of the craniofacial anatomy are covered and all topics are discussed in depth: clinical and anatomic pathology, diagnostic studies, treatment protocols, preoperative planning (including the latest virtual programs), device selection, operating room technical considerations, postoperative management, and intermediate/long-term follow-up. Relevant and timely studies from the literature are cited. The book is excellently illustrated, with many patient photos, radiographs, and drawings. Craniofacial Distraction will be a superb, up-to-date resource for a wide range of practitioners, including maxillofacial surgeons, craniofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, pediatric surgeons, orthodontists, prosthodontists, and pedodontists.
