Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery: A Modern Approach, Second Edition provides updates on the original techniques and overall methodology used in neuromonitoring. The purpose of this book is to describe the integration of neuromonitoring with surgical procedures. Each methodology is discussed in detail, along with chapters that describe how those methodologies are applied to multiple neurosurgical procedures and the evidence used to support those uses. The second edition features surgical procedures section, which focuses on specific surgical procedures and the type of monitoring used during these procedures.

The book’s original chapters have been updated and expanded, with the structure modified to ensure the book is beneficial to both physiologists and surgeons. This book is written for neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, neurologists, anesthesiologists, interventional neuroradiologists, orthopedic surgeons and plastic surgeons.

Provides a valuable educational tool that describes the theoretical and practical aspects of intraoperative monitoring through example Presents in-depth descriptions of the most advanced techniques in intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring, along with guidelines for the management of neuroanesthesia during MEP monitoring Features a surgical procedures section that focuses on specific surgical procedures and the type of monitoring used during these procedures

The Neuromodulation Casebook is a case-based volume for practical, hands-on decision-making using realistic case examples from the field of neuromodulation. It encompasses a variety of techniques and therapies, ranging from deep brain stimulation for a multitude of disorders to spinal cord stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation, cortical stimulation, and cranial nerve stimulation, as well as non-invasive therapies and other implanted types of devices that interface with the nervous system. Allowing readers to better learn via case-based examples, this practical volume depicts real examples of decisions neuroscientists and neurosurgeons need to make every day from leaders in the field.

This book serves as a companion text to the editor’s previous titles Essential Neuromodulation and Innovative Neuromodulation for neuroscience, neural engineering, and biomedical engineering courses.


About the Author

Jeff Arle, MD, PhD, FAANS

Dr. Arle is currently the Associate Chief of Neurosurgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, the Chief of Neurosurgery at Mt. Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, and an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School. He received his BA in Biopsychology from Columbia University in 1986 and his MD and PhD from the University of Connecticut in 1992. His dissertation work for his doctorate in Biomedical Sciences was in computational modeling in the Cochlear Nucleus. He then went on to do a residency in neurosurgery at the University of Pennsylvania, incorporating a double fellowship in movement disorder surgery and epilepsy surgery under Drs. Patrick Kelly, Ron Alterman, and Werner Doyle, finishing in 1999.

He edited the companion text Essential Neuromodulation with Dr. Shils, the first edition published by Elsevier in 2011. He has now practiced in the field of functional neurosurgery for 17 years and is experienced in all areas of neuromodulation from deep brain stimulators to vagus nerve, spinal cord, peripheral nerve, and motor cortex stimulators, contributing frequent peer-reviewed publications and numerous chapters to the literature on many aspects of the neuromodulation field. He currently serves as an associate editor at the journals Neuromodulation and Neurosurgery, is the co-chair of the Research and Scientific Policy Committee for the International Neuromodulation Society, and is on the Board of Directors for the International Society for Intraoperative Neurophysiology. His long-standing research interests are in the area of computational modeling in the understanding and improved design of devices used in neuromodulation treatments.

Microsurgical Basics and Bypass Techniques

Microsurgical Basics and Bypass Techniques

by Evgenii Belykh (Author), Nikolay L. Martirosyan (Author), M. Yashar Kalani (Author), Peter Nakaji (Author)

A step-by-step manual on fundamental microsurgical bypass techniques young neurosurgeons need to master!

All neurosurgeons must undergo rigorous training in the laboratory and practice bypass techniques repetitively before performing microneurosurgery on a patient. Microsurgical Basics and Bypass Techniques by Evgenii Belykh, Nikolay Martirosyan, M. Yashar S. Kalani, and Peter Nakaji is a comprehensive yet succinct manual on fundamental laboratory techniques rarely included in clinical textbooks. The resource simplifies repetitive microsurgical practice in the laboratory by providing a menu of diverse, progressively challenging exercises.

Step-by-step instructions accompanied by easy-to-understand illustrations, expert commentary, and videos effectively bridge the gap between laboratory practice and operating room performance. The book starts with an opening chapter on four founding principles of microsurgical practice inherited from great thinkers and concludes with a chapter featuring cerebrovascular bypass cases. Chapters 2-8 offer a complete one-week curriculum, with a different lab exercise each day, focused on learning basic microsurgery skills.

Key Features

Twenty-six videos cover a wide array of topics – from diverse methods for holding instruments and suturing techniques – to end-to-end, end-to-side, and side-to-side anastomosis procedures

High quality color illustrations clearly demonstrate basic techniques

Practical laboratory exercises include how to organize a microsurgical laboratory, essential training and skills, basic arterial and deep-field anastomoses, kidney autotransplantation, supermicrosurgery, and aneurysm clipping

Invaluable tips such as preventing bypass errors and applying laboratory skills to neurosurgical practice

This is an essential microsurgical learning and teaching guide for neurosurgical residents on how to perform basic bypass and anastomoses procedures step by step.

Part of the Fundamental Skills in Neurosurgery Series, Series Editors: Peter Nakaji, Vadim A. Byvaltsev, and Robert F. Spetzler.

This book includes complimentary access to a digital copy on https://medone.thieme.com.
