Nobutaka Yoshioka, MD, PhD and Albert L. Rhoton Jr., MD
have created an anatomical atlas of astounding precision. An unparalleled
teaching tool, this atlas opens a unique window into the anatomical intricacies
of complex facial nerves and related structures.
An internationally renowned author, educator, brain anatomist, and
neurosurgeon, Dr. Rhoton is regarded by colleagues as one of the fathers of
modern microscopic neurosurgery. Dr. Yoshioka, an esteemed craniofacial
reconstructive surgeon in Japan, mastered this precise dissection technique
while undertaking a fellowship at Dr. Rhoton’s microanatomy lab, writing in the
preface that within such precision images lies potential for surgical
Exquisite color photographs, prepared from carefully dissected latex
injected cadavers, reveal anatomy layer by layer, with remarkable detail and
clarity. An added highlight, 3-D versions of these extraordinary
images are available online in the Thieme MediaCenter.Major sections
include intracranial region and skull, upper facial and midfacial region, and
lower facial and posterolateral neck region.
Organized by region, each layered dissection elucidates specific nerves and
structures with pinpoint accuracy, providing the clinician with in-depth
anatomical insights. Precise clinical explanations accompany each photograph. In
tandem, the images and text provide an excellent foundation for understanding
the nerves and structures impacted by neurosurgical-related pathologies as well
as other conditions and injuries.
An exceptionally stunning anatomical reference, this book is a must-have
reference for residents, and advanced clinicians specializing in neurosurgery,
facial plastic surgery, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, and craniofacial
