This book presents the reader with sixteen chapters that detail instrumentation, techniques, procedures, complication avoidance, and outcomes.
• Most chapters are divided into a current literature review and a "how to" section which describes details, nuances and aspects of each technique.
• Complex and cumbersome language has been avoided, yet the book is detailed sufficiently to guide surgeons through the operations.
• It is primarily intended for neurosurgeons who desire to learn more about the discipline and want to incorporate these techniques into their practice.
