State of the art approaches and insightful discussions on challenging topics in skull base surgery.

Advances in endoscopic, microsurgical, radiosurgical, and pharmacotherapeutic strategies have revolutionized the treatment of skull basepathologies. Controversies in Skull Base Surgery, edited by Andrew Little and Michael Mooney and authored by esteemed multidisciplinary contributors, focuses on management strategies and treatment options for a wide range of skull base tumors, while addressing the most urgent and challenging questions facing skull base surgeons today.

Throughout nine sections and 46 chapters, experts describe the treatment of neoplasms such as vestibular schwannomameningiomapituitary adenomacraniopharyngiomachordoma, cranial nerve schwannoma, sinonasal malignancies, and others. In many chapters, authors provide instructional case studies and suggestions for future studies to help clarify areas of controversy. This textbook is unique in that it tackles problems typically minimized or ignored by other texts that impact a patient’s quality of life and recovery.

Key Highlights

Reader-friendly tables feature concise summaries, author pearls, and levels of available evidence Pearls and insights on hotly debated issues such as the role of radiosurgery, surgery vs. medical management, radical resection vs. subtotal resection, and proton-beam vs. photon therapy for various pathologic conditions.

Controversies not frequently discussed in depth, including the use of lumbar drains, postoperative antibiotics, and cerebral revascularization in skull base surgery; multidisciplinary collaboration in endoscopic endonasal surgery; skull base reconstruction techniques; and the future of robotics in skull base surgery.

This stellar resource will benefit all residents and advanced practice providers who evaluate and treat patients with skull base pathologies, including neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, and radiation and medical oncologists.

New Book: Current Research in Brain Cancer

Current Research in Brain Cancer

Brain cancers occur when an abnormal growth of cells occurs in the brain. Some types of brain cancer are medulloblastomaastrocytomameningiomas, etc. A form of astrocytoma called glioblastoma is the most aggressive form of brain cancer. Symptoms of brain cancer include headaches, vomiting, seizures, altered vision and mental changes. It is diagnosed using computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and the result is confirmed usually through a biopsy. The treatment of brain cancer may involve a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. No therapy has yet shown any progress in increasing life expectancy in people with malignant gliomas. However, cancer immunotherapy is being actively studied. Research is also being pursued in the use of vesicular stomatitis virus and retroviral replicating vectors as management strategies for brain cancer. The objective of this book is to give a modern perspective on brain cancer. Different approaches, evaluations, methodologies and advanced studies on brain cancer have been included in this book. Students, researchers, experts and all associated with neurology, neuroscience, surgical oncology, clinical oncology and radiation oncology will benefit alike from this book.
