Surgery of the Cerebellopontine Angle is a single volume text which meshes the information available in surgical atlases with clinical disease entities. The inclusion of an interactive atlas adds to the importance of the text and complements it, and also obviates the need to reference multiple sources. This allows the project to stand out from its competitors and broadens its appeal.
Organized in four sections, the first discusses anatomy, radiology, and neurology of the temporal bone and CPA in detail. The second section describes the surgical approaches and includes the latest developments in such approaches. It also includes separate chapters describing the newest innovations in minimally invasive approaches and technological advances in cranial nerve monitoring.
With 50 multidisciplinary, worldwide experts as contributors Surgery of the Cerebellopontine Angle address relevant clinical disease entities and state of the art treatments.
