Honorable Mention at 2015 PROSE Awards! In this book, Dr. Michael Lawton shares his expertise and lessons learned from his years of dedication to vascular neurosurgery. He describes his take on AVMs in the preface as a battle and his book contains many take-home lessons. His presentation is enhanced by the spectacular intraoperative color images and illustrations drawn by Kenneth X. Probst. With no reservations, I highly recommend this book to all neurosurgeons. -- Doody's Enterprises, Inc.
