    An essential backpack-size resource on the treatment of pediatric neurological conditions

    Pediatric neurosurgery has witnessed considerable technological advances, resulting in more efficacious outcomes for young patients with hydrocephalus, epilepsy, brain tumors, spinal deformities, and a host of other conditions. The art of pediatric neurosurgery is a delicate balancing act—taking into account child and parents and emotional and disease challenges. As such, the management of serious neurological conditions in pediatric patients must encompass the big picture in addition to treating underlying pathologies.

    Handbook of Pediatric Neurosurgery by George Jallo, Karl Kothbauer, and Violette Recinos covers the full depth and breadth of this uniquely rewarding subspecialty including congenital, developmental, and acquired disorders. The latest information is provided on anatomy, radiological imaging, and principles guiding the surgical and nonsurgical management of a full spectrum of neurological pathologies impacting infants and children. The book is divided into 11 sections and 56 chapters with state-of-the-art procedures, best practices, and clinical pearls from top pediatric neurosurgeons.

    Key Features

    Cranial disorders including Chiari malformations, encephaloceles, Dandy-Walker malformation, and craniosynostosisBenign and malignant tumors—from the hypothalamus and optic pathways to the brainstem and spinal columnSpinal abnormalities such as spina bifida, tethered cord, and scoliosisClinical questions and answers at the end of chapters—ideal for self-testing and exam prep

    Comprehensive and compact, this is the perfect backpack reference for neurosurgery residents and pediatric neurosurgery fellows to carry on rounds. It is also a must-have resource for seasoned pediatric neurosurgeons and all practitioners entrusted with the neurological care of pediatric patients.

    In Controversies in Pediatric Neurosurgery, leading clinicians from around the globe present concrete advice and frank commentary on alternative options for the treatment and management of specific cranial and spinal disorders. Each succinct, easily accessible chapter addresses a different condition in a point/counterpoint format that discusses the pros and cons of the various treatment options, including surgical approaches and techniques. This highly practical, balanced coverage equips readers to make well-informed choices when selecting the most appropriate treatment modality for a particular diagnosis.Features:Lessons Learned at the end of each chapter, in which the authors summarize the debate with multiple viewpoints and carefully considered recommendations based on published evidence and their own clinical experienceIncisive dialogue on twenty hot topics in the field, including how to manage arachnoid cysts, craniosynostosis, tethered cord, hydrocephalus, chiari malformations, epilepsy, aneurysms, and moreClinical and personal insights from international contributors on the variability of surgical training, experience, and available resources in different parts of the worldGuidance on how to discuss treatment options and strategies to patients and their familiesThis book is essential reading for every clinician, resident, or fellow who needs a firm understanding of the most controversial issues in pediatric neurosurgery to be able to make the best decision for the appropriate treatment option for patients in their care.
