Surgery of the Cerebellopontine Angle, 2nd Edition


Now in a fully revised and expanded second edition, this book remains the gold standard guide to the surgical treatment of diseases in the cerebellopontine angle (CPA), the fragile area of the skull base that Harvey Cushing famously described as “the bloody angle.” This edition combines current information on the relevant clinical diseases of the CPA with dramatically improved surgical management of its diseases, arranged in five thematic sections.

The first section presents the basis and rationale for treatment, including historical perspectives, microsurgical anatomy, relevant radiology and neurology. Part two is composed of chapters on surgical approaches, and parts three and four provide detailed descriptions of surgical management techniques for vestibular schwannomas and non schwannomatous lesions, respectively. The final section provides 21 distinct clinical cases with associated video segments, demonstrating the approaches and techniques in real time.
