Neurosurgical Emergencies, 3rd Edition, (PDF) covers frequently faced neurosurgical emergencies, with contributions from well known experts in their respective subspecialties. Clinical insights and easy-to-follow protocols are given for emergencies associated with infection, disease, and trauma – and complications like status epilepticus and acute shunt malfunction. Injury classification, evaluation, surgical indications, clinical presentation, imaging, approaches, and prognosis are presented for every condition. Evidence-based, concise descriptions enable readers to quickly gain a solid understanding of the pathogenesis of each problem.

The authors retained the content and scope of previous editions and included six new chapters that reflect recent advances. These include new invasive brain monitoring techniques and their relevance to clinical practice, emergency endovascular stroke treatment, cerebral venous thrombosis, emergency surgery for stroke, consideration of cervical stenosis as an emergency, and emergent presentation and management of vascular lesions, and spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas.
