WFNS Neurosurgical Anatomy Committe Hands on course – Brno 2018

Dear friends,
I have attended many meetings where Gazi Yasargil has been giving his lectures. He had a mantra which he repeated at least once during each of his lectures: Anatomy, anatomy, anatomy.
He was right. Anatomy is the true basis of any neurosurgical endeavor. You can be best at surgical techniques, skilled in neurological evaluation, excellent in images interpretation, master in intensive care, perfect in
doctor-patient communication, whatever. However, when it comes down to procedure itself, which is the peak of what we do for our patients, it gets down to anatomy.
Anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system is the most complex and difficult one throughout the human body. Sellar region, cavernous sinus, petrous bone, cp angel, foramen magnum are the most challenging regions in the human body. To learn the anatomy of this region means building the groundwork for advancing into the top of our discipline.Such a surgical anatomy, as perfectly shown in the works of Albert Rhoton and others, is impossible to learn in the operating theatre, nor is it possible at the general anatomy lectures. Such an anatomy is best absorbed at the courses combining theoretical lectures with practical hands-on workshops.
It is the mission of WFNS Neurosurgical Anatomy Committee to teach and educate. And it is the neurosurgical anatomy which obviously is the content and target of our courses.
We hope you will enjoy the course in Brno.

Applied Cranial-Cerebral Anatomy: Brain Architecture and Anatomically Oriented Microneurosurgery

Applied Cranial-Cerebral Anatomy: Brain Architecture and Anatomically Oriented Microneurosurgery

List Price: 
This book is the first to offer a comprehensive guide to understanding the brain’s architecture from a topographical viewpoint. Authored by a leading expert in surgical neuroanatomy, this practical text provides tri-dimensional understanding of the cerebral hemispheres, and the relationships between cerebral surfaces and the skull’s outer surfaces through detailed brain dissections and actual clinical cases with operative photographs and correlative neuroimaging. For neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and neurologists at all levels, this book emphasises the anatomy of the sulci and gyri of the cerebral surface. It is an essential resource for the general neurosurgery practice, and more particularly for planning surgical access routes for intracranial tumors.

Atlas of Anatomy of the Peripheral Nerves: The Nerves of the Limbs – Student Edition
List Price: $89.99

This innovative atlas focuses on peripheral nerves and provides a brand new approach compared to regular anatomy books. Using a modern 3D approach, it offers an alternative to conventional anatomical structures. It reviews all the anatomy and the morphology of these structures from an original point of view.
In these three-dimensional diagrams, as well as in the watercolor drawings enhanced with a 3D inlay, each type of nerve is depicted in a minute detail.
The atlas simplifies the anatomy and make it easy and understandable by allowing readers to develop a mental “real-time 3D GPS”.
The integration of MRI sections related to the drawings and the descriptions of the main nerve injuries provide medical students with a flexible but effective transition to the radiological interpretation and furthers the clinical learning process.
After a detailed evaluation of the morphofunctional anatomy of the peripheral nerves, the authors present a collection of relevant data on neuromuscular transmission, both from classical and recent literature, ranging from the central and peripheral nervous system to the effector muscle. This information offers a basis for understanding the physiology, the pathology, and the repair prospects of peripheral nerves from a purely theoretical point of view.
The book is divided into three main parts:
– Fundamental notions: from immunohistochemistry to limb innervation
– The upper limb: the brachial plexus and related peripheral nerves
– The lower limb: the lumbosacral plexus and related peripheral nerves
This atlas also features 261 outstanding full-colour 2D and 3D illustrations. Each picture has been designed in 2D and 3D with a combination of the original editor’s personal drawings/paintings and 3D-modeling tools.
This book is a valuable resource for anyone studying medicine, anaesthesiology, neurosurgery, spine surgery, pain, radiology or rheumatology and is also of high interest to the whole medical community in general.

About the Author

Prof. Philippe Rigoard  is a Senior surgeon and coordinator of the Spine & Neuromodulation Unit within the Neurosurgical Department, at the Poitiers University Hospital, in France. He is also an Honorary Consultant at St Thomas & Guy’s Hospital, Pain clinic, in London, UK, an Anatomy conference reader at the Human Morphology Institute, Faculty of Medicine of the University of Poitiers and a Researcher at the Inserm, CIC (Clinical Investigation Center) 802. He is research program director of the N3Lab, Neuromodulation & Neural Networks Lab in Poitiers.
In parallel of studying anatomy and morphology at National Art Institute, Beaux-Arts, Paris, from 1994-1996, he decided to enter into medicine. He received his medical degree as 1st Laureate of faculty of Medicine, Poitiers in 2006 and completed postgraduate medical training in spine surgery 2008 and a fellowship in functional neurosurgery in 2009.
From 2002-2007 he also completed his PhD of Sciences, in Poitiers as well as several degrees including in Neuromuscular Diseases, acute pain, chronic pain and pain management in emergency conditions, microsurgical techniques and surgical robotics.
His main research interest is neuromodulation and spine biomechanics. He has intensive scientific collaborations with several researchers worldwide, e.g., Dr. Kumar (Canada), Dr. Desai, Dr. North, Dr. Slavin (USA) and Dr. Al-Kaisy (UK).  He is reviewer for many scientific journals and a member of several learnt societies, including the International Association for the Study of Pain, International Neuromodulation society, European Association of Neurosurgeons, French and North American Society of Spine Surgery.
He has also published dozens of journal articles, abstracts, and book chapters, and has lectured at numerous conferences and symposia worldwide.

The 16th UK edition of the Lectures will take place at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
Prof Guilherme Ribas will review surgical anatomy of the brain using his engaging didactic style and a unique collection of 3D dissection images.
This Lectures’ guest speaker is Dr Jacques Morcos from Miami. He will discuss his experience with a wide variety of neurosurgical conditions, including vascular and skull base. As usual, there will be a College dinner on Saturday.

Oxford Subcortical 3D Anatomy and
White Fibre Dissection Course

21st -23rd March 2016
More Information

This is the 1st White Fibre dissection course in the UK. It is a comprehensive course covering the cortical and subcortical white fibre anatomy in 3D with lectures and hands on cadaver dissections. The course will cover clinical applications of DTI during awake surgery for intrinsic gliomas and deep brain stimulation. Each participant has a cadaver brain and one Medtronic planning station with the StealthViz/DTI planning software.
