Douglas Mattox, Ugo Fisch
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.
