Key features:

Introductory chapters on the general principles,
instrumentation, and special considerations that characterize this type of
Discussion of the radiology of skull base lesions as it
relates to surgery, with particular emphasis on findings that can influence the
choice of surgical approach, alter the course of surgery, or affect the
Actual demonstrations of the anatomy seen during the
different surgical approache — standard anatomy textbooks fail to address this
For each approach, step-by-step descriptions of the
surgical technique and numerous clinical cases representing the most commonly
encountered lesions so that the reader receives a comprehensive understanding of
how to perform the approach and what to expect during surgery
Pearls and Pitfalls at the end of most chapters

Over 1300 superb and instructive illustrations
consisting of photographs of live surgery and cadaver dissections, radiologic
images, and drawings

This essential text also covers other must-know, highly advanced topics, including:

Combined approaches providing the necessary route to
manage certain extensive skull base tumors that represent particular challenges
Management strategies for different skull base lesions
(e.g., surgical vs. nonsurgical management, the different factors that determine
the choice of the surgical approach, cases that are managed conservatively or
with radiosurgery)
Management of the internal carotid artery in skull base
surgery, including the new technique of using stents to facilitate tumor
dissection from the internal carotid artery

This outstanding surgical atlas is invaluable for any surgeon who seeks not only to master the different surgical approaches but also to grasp the real essence of skull base surgery.
