Anatomy, Imaging and Surgery of the Intracranial Dural Venous Sinuses
This first-of-its-kind volume focuses on the anatomy, imaging, and surgery of the dural venous sinuses and the particular relevance to neurosurgery and trauma surgery. Knowledge of the fine clinical anatomy involved in neurosurgery and skull base surgery has progressed greatly in recent years, and this title reflects new information of particular importance to neurosurgeons, trauma surgeons, neurologists, interventional radiologists, and others who need a complete, up-to-date understanding of this complex anatomical area.
- Provides thorough coverage of the clinical anatomy of the dural venous sinuses, highlighted by 250 clear, high-quality illustrations and clinical photographs.
- Covers imaging techniques and surgery in separate chapters following extensive anatomy coverage.
- Presents the knowledge and experience of recognized experts and authors in the field.
- Consolidates today's available information and guidance into a single, convenient resource.
