Each edition of Current Techniques in Neurosurgery represents a unique combination of authoritative reviews of the most exciting topics in contemporary neurosurgery, richly illustrated in color with up-to-date and annotated bibliographies of the leading articles in the field. In addition to the usual emphasis on topics such as cerebrovascular disease, neuro-oncology, spinal disorders, and trauma, the text covers emerging technologies impacting OR reorganization, and computer workstations, leading ultimately to the practice of neurosurgery at a molecular level. From the Preface of the 2/e: "Ultimately, of course, at the intersection of molecular biology, computer technology, and anatomic dissection, the surgeon and patient meet in the operating theater; it is my hope that the practical insights and excitement of that intersection are brought home to you."
