The management of tumors in and adjacent to the skullbase is challenging given the complex and critically important anatomy of the region and the wide diversity of tumor pathologies that may be encountered. To help navigate the complexities of contemporary multidisciplinary management of these patients, Drs. Hanna and DeMonte bring you Comprehensive Management of Skull Base Tumors, a comprehensive guide filled with updated information from authorities around the world. Comprehensive Management of Skull Base Tumors is divided into three sections consisting of: general principles site specific surgery tumor specific management Filled with scientific tables and lavishly illustrated, this text is written with an emphasis on surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, and will appeal to all neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, ophthalmologists, medical and radiation oncologists, and radiologists.

In recent years, interest in the management of anterior skull base tumors has been fostered by the introduction and subsequent rapid expansion of indications of transnasal endoscopic techniques. In parallel, extraordinary progress has been made in all the other disciplines which are involved in the complex process of managing anterior skull base tumors, leading to substantial improvements in diagnosis and treatment. The anterior skull base can be involved in a large variety of tumors of a varying nature and histology, which in the majority of cases originate from adjacent anatomic sites. In fact, primary lesions of the anterior skull base mainly include osteoma and other tumors originating from bone and cartilage. Tumors involving the anterior skull base have their origin prevalently in the sinonasal tract, but lesions developing on the intracranial site, such as meningiomas, may also extend caudally to encroach upon this area. All these lesions are rare, which means that the pertinent literature does not include prospective studies or treatment guidelines based on a high level of evidence. In view of the extreme histological variability of lesions involving the anterior skull base, much emphasis has been placed on addressing the different nuances of treatment in relation to histology, especially for malignant tumors. The chapters focusing on surgery provide divergent views on selection criteria for a specific surgical technique, which is the aim of this publication.

Drawing on decades of experience and wisdom, Dr. Ugo Fisch created this classic text/atlas on microsurgical procedures for the skull base. The authors have labored not to popularize skull base surgery, but to provide the details of each operation, giving surgeons the valuable information they need. Each chapter of the text discusses a specific procedure and is divided into two sections, covering both the general surgical steps of the procedure and also its application. Within each chapter you'll find: general considerations; surgical techniques; applications; tips and pratfalls; imaging scans of illustrative cases; and color plates of pre- and post-operative preparation and instrumentation. The final two chapters discuss anesthesia issues and the impact of neuroradiology on skull base surgery. All of the cases used in the book reflect actual procedures, not hypothetical situations. All neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists involved in skull base surgery will benefit from having this classic text in their professional library. It demonstrates the procedures that have proven to be both safe and reliable through the years.

The overall incidence of meningiomas, particularly in the developed countries, is rising due to a growing size of the aging population, with people living longer and enjoying healthier lives than ever before. Additionally, an increased utilization of imaging studies such as computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) for routine evaluation of closed head injuries, paranasal sinus problems and various non-specific neurological symptoms, ranging from headaches to dizziness, has contributed to enhanced detection of incidental meningiomas. The book contains the most up-to-date information in all matters related to meningiomas, and is written by multiple contributors - internationally recognized experts in their respective fields from Asia, USA and Europe. This is an essential reference guide to neurosurgeons and neurologists (in training and in practice), as well as medical libraries, throughout the world.
