Advances in Vestibular Schwannoma Microneurosurgery: Improving Results with New Technologies
This volume describes the most relevant and cutting-edge technological news on the complex surgical procedure of acoustic neuroma. The clinical-radiological diagnosis and surgical indications are briefly presented and the surgical technique is illustrated step-by-step: video clips show the latest means of treating these patients. All these indications were prepared by highly experienced experts in the field, based on their personal experience.
The new technologies discussed concern e.g. the intraoperative identification and position of the facial nerve, hearing preservation, techniques for dural closure, and the usefulness of laser and ultrasound aspirators. The book also discusses a number of ongoing projects, including those on: diluted papaverine for microvascular protection of cranial nerves, flexible endoscope for IAC control of tumor removal, fluid cement for bone closure, administering aspirin to control residual tumors larger than 7mm, and DTI for preoperative prediction of the position of the facial nerve.
This is a highly informative presented book providing surgeon interested in acoustic neuroma with necessary information on modern technologies available for improving the results of patients.
8th Istanbul Microneurosurgery Course – Parts 1 & 2
June 7 — June 16
7 – 10 June: Part I “Hands on Microvascular Anastomosis”.
Renowned teacher of microsurgery, Rosmarie Frick will lead participants in learning the key points of micro suturing, vascular anastomosis and micro dissection.
11 – 16 June: Part II “Hands-on white matter dissection course and live surgery”.
In the first three days, participants will experience the three dimensional anatomy of the human brain. In the following days, live surgeries observed in 3D, lectures from experts and case discussions would demonstrate the value of mastering the brain anatomy in practice of neurosurgery. Please feel free to bring your interesting cases to be discussed.
Professor M. Gazi Yasargil, who originated such courses, is co-directing the Istanbul Microneurosurgery Course.
