In one book, the practitioner can obtain a solid foundation in the field of endoscopy as practiced by neurosurgeons. Included is a review of the physics and instrumentation of neuroendoscopic systems, comprehensive coverage of the anatomy upon which neuroendoscopic procedures are performed, and illustrations and text describing how endoscopic surgery can be used as an alternative to traditional surgery for such complex procedures as hematoma evacuation, abscess, and third ventriculocisternostomies. Avoiding and managing frequently encountered complications are thoroughly discussed.
