Description détaillée : CONTROVERSIES IN SKULL BASE SURGERY

Advances in endoscopic, microsurgical, radiosurgical, and pharmacotherapeutic strategies have revolutionized the treatment of skull base pathologies.

Controversies in Skull Base Surgery, edited by Andrew Little and Michael Mooney and authored by esteemed multidisciplinary contributors, focuses on management strategies and treatment options for a wide range of tumors affecting the skull base, while addressing the most urgent and challenging questions facing skull base surgeons today.

Throughout nine sections and 46 chapters, experts describe the treatment of neoplasms such as vestibular schwannoma, meningioma, pituitary adenoma, craniopharyngioma, chordoma, cranial nerve schwannoma, sinonasal malignancies, and others.

In many chapters, authors provide instructional case studies and suggestions for future studies to help clarify areas of controversy.

This textbook is unique in that it tackles problems typically minimized or ignored by other texts that impact a patient's quality of life and recovery.
