The cerebellopontine angle (CPA) challenges the expertise of surgical teams treating pathologic conditions of the skull base. Surgery in this dense, complex area is both difficult and open to undesirable outcomes, but new modalities, such as endoscopy, endovasular surgery, and radiosurgery, now offer surgeons proven, effective options.
With 50 multidisciplinary, worldwide experts as contributors, Surgery of the Cerebellopontine Angleaddresses relevant clinical disease entities and state-of-the-art treatments in five sections: foundations for treatment, surgical approaches, acoustic neuromas, nonschwannomatous lesions of the CPA, and an interactive DVD comprising anatomic views of the temporal bone and CPA and full-color video clips of case samples.
In Surgery of the Cerebellopontine Angle, Dr. Bambakidis and colleagues have created a comprehensive monograph of critical value to all practitioners who see and treat patients with diseases in this fragile area so succinctly described by the great neurosurgeon Harvey Cushing as “the bloody angle.”
