Description:

This unique and richly illustrated volume presents the state of the art in the comprehensive management of major neurosurgical diseases in the elderly (aged 65 and over). It explores all of the common neurosurgical pathologies affecting elderly patients, and emphasizes the paramount importance of tailored management strategies for quality of life. It highlights updated techniques for anaesthesia and critical care, as well as minimally invasive neurosurgical methods intended for this specific group of patients. Radiosurgery treatment is also discussed, in particular for brain tumours

In western societies, the proportion of elderly citizens has nearly reached 20%, and shows no signs of slowing down. The management of neurosurgical conditions in this particular population requires specific multidisciplinary strategies. To address this situation, a team of internationally respected contributors accurately describe degenerative and traumatic spinal diseases, which account for the majority of admissions among the elderly, as well as brain tumours and intracranial haemorrhages, aspects that are raising new ethical issues

User’s Review:

This text is written primarily for neurosurgeons and, to a lesser extent, neurologists, neurointensivists, and neuroanesthesiologists. It is appropriate for trainees of these disciplines at all levels. … This is a timely and visionary text that can augment the practice of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroanesthesiologists, and neurointensivists … .” (Ryan M. Naylor and William E. Krausss, Neurosurgery, Vol. 81 (6), December, 2017)
