Operative procedures performed directly on the base of the brain, inner ear, and cranial nerves are inherently delicate undertakings further complicated by the difficulty of achieving easy access to this confined space. Written by pioneers working at one of the world's leading centers for advanced neurosurgery, An Atlas of Skull Base Surgery clearly describes the steps by which each of the key anatomical structures at the skull base and inner ear may be accessed in order to perform advanced surgical interventions. Featuring over 170 specially commissioned diagrams, and over 100 photographs of MRI, CT, and other imaging modalities, the atlas comprehensively covers a range of surgical approaches. The authors use the detailed supporting artwork to demonstrate the main steps in each procedure and help readers conceptualize the anatomy and surgical trajectory. With extensive accompanying notes on patient assessment and postoperative care, An Atlas of Skull Base Surgery facilitates the complete evaluation and management of patients with skull base lesions in which the clinical presentation or cell type mandates an operative procedure.
