Spine Surgery: A Case-Based Approach 1st ed

Spine Surgery: A Case-Based Approach 1st ed

This book covers the content of European postgraduate spine surgery courses, using a case-based approach. It describes a stepwise solution to a real-world clinical problem and compares this with the best available evidence. It then provides suggestions on how to bridge the gap (if there is one) between standard of care and evidence-based medicine.

Spine Surgery: A Case-Based Approach is aimed at postgraduate students of spine surgery (both trainee neurosurgeons and trainee orthopedic surgeons), and is also of interest to medical students.

Warlow’s Stroke: Practical Management 4th Edition

Warlow’s Stroke: Practical Management 4th Edition

A practical textbook, based on a problem-oriented workflow, that will improve patients’ likelihood of full recovery from stroke and prevent future strokes from occurring

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and is in the top five causes of death globally. Warlow’s Stroke: Practical Management, 4th Edition takes a problem-oriented approach and addresses the questions posed by a stroke patient in the order they are likely to present in clinical practice, for instance, ‘Is it a stroke?’, ‘What sort of stroke?’, ‘What caused it?’, and ‘What can be done about it?’.

Beginning with chapters phrased as questions, the book walks the reader through a standard clinical workflow, exploring the practical skills and assessment required at each stage of patient management. Early chapters cover: locating the vascular lesion, identifying the involved arterial territory, the role imaging should play, and the application thereof.

Subsequent chapters look at what causes a transient or persistent ischemic event, an intracerebral hemorrhage and a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Unusual causes of ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack are also covered. The book then presents a practical approach to the management of stroke and transient ischemic attack; offers specific treatments for acute ischemic stroke and aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage; provides ways for professionals to prevent first or recurrent stroke; and more.

Final chapters of the book discuss rehabilitation after stroke, how patients and carers can be supported in the short term and long term, prevention of recurrent stroke, and the organization of stroke services.

Warlow’s Stroke: Practical Management, 4th Edition

  • Follows clinical workflow for stroke analysis
  • Features evidence-based approach throughout
  • Offers practical application aimed at improving patient outcomes
  • Written and edited by internationally renowned experts in the field

An essential resource for all practitioners involved in the care of patients who suffer from cerebrovascular disease, but particularly suitable for neurologists, residents, geriatricians, stroke physicians, radiologists and primary care physicians.

Perinatal Neuroradiology: From the Fetus to the Newborn

Perinatal Neuroradiology: From the Fetus to the Newborn

DOWNLOAD THIS MEDICAL BOOK HERE

https://upsto.re/CjETmuJ

The novel aim of this book is to illustrate the MR imaging features of the fetal and the neonatal brain by matching prenatal and postnatal images for a wide range of neurological abnormalities. The focus is on both conventional and advanced MR imaging techniques, including high-resolution MR autopsy of the fetal brain.

During the past ten years, neuroradiological evaluation of the neonatal and the prenatal brain has advanced tremendously. However, even though they are intrinsically related, these two critical stages in brain development are usually studied and presented separately. In order to have a sound understanding of neonatal brain diseases, detailed knowledge of prenatal brain pathology is immensely helpful; conversely, knowledge of neonatal brain disease is a prerequisite for understanding many fetal brain lesions. Written by experts in the field, Perinatal Neuroradiology will be of value for neuroradiologists and pediatric radiologists, as well as obstetricians and neonatologists.
