As a result of its structure, the skull base forms a borderline between different medi cal and surgical specialties. Nevertheless, the pathology of the skull may involve crossing these boundaries. Consequently, treatment may require a multidisciplinary approach with close cooperation between different specialists, each with his specific knowledge and capabilities. A good example is the cooperation needed in the treat ment of skull base trauma. The Skull Base Study Group was founded some years ago in view of this situa tion. Its purpose is to organize international conferences on topics related to skull base pathology. The first was held in June 1982 and focused on the area of trauma tology. The present volume contains articles written by the highly qualified con tributors to the June 1982 conference, dealing with the anatomical, biomechan ical, and neuroradiological aspects of skull base fractures and their consequences in neurologic and vascular dysfunction and deficits. Many authors from Europe and abroad have contributed to the high standard of this book. I would like to congratulate the Editors on the publication of this volume. It contains many important and interesting aspects of particular value to all medical and surgical specialists working in or on one of either sides of the skull base.

Craniofacial Trauma, Diagnosis and Management offers detailed guidance on the diagnosis, surgical planning, and interdisciplinary treatment of craniofacial trauma. The book is divided into two parts. The first, devoted to classification and diagnosis of craniofacial fractures, includes chapters on anatomy, radiology, fracture classification, fracture mechanisms, epidemiological aspects, symptoms, and specific related aspects of neuro-craniofacial injuries. The second part addresses the treatment of craniofacial trauma, examining operative principles and providing step-by-step descriptions of a variety of hard and soft tissue reconstructive procedures. Complications and late sequelae following craniofacial reconstruction are examined, and a further chapters is devoted to delayed reconstruction of craniofacial defects. New developments and the role of computer-assisted treatment planning are discussed in the final section. This manual will provide an indispensable reference for residents in maxillofacial training and for maxillofacial/ neurosurgeons in the specialized field of craniofacial traumatology.

The diagnosis of trauma to the spine -- where the slightest oversight may have catastrophic results -- requires a thorough grasp of the spectrum of resultant pathology as well as the imaging modalities used in making an accurate diagnosis. In Spinal Trauma, the internationally renowned team of experts provides a comprehensive, cutting-edge exposition of the current vital role of imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries to the axial skeleton. Beginning with a valuable clinical perspective of spinal trauma, the book offers the reader a unique overview of the biomechanics underlying the beautifully illustrated pathology of cervical trauma. Acute trauma topics include: Optimization of imaging modalities Malalignment -- signs and significance Vertebral fractures -- detection and implications Classification of thoraco-lumbar fractures -- rationale and relevance Neurovascular injury Distilling decades of clinical and teaching expertise, the contributors further discuss the current role of imaging in special focus topics, which include: The pediatric spine Sports injuries The rigid spine Trauma in the elderly Vertebral collapse, benign and malignant Spinal trauma therapy Vertebral fractures and osteoporosis Neuropathic spine All throughout the book, the focus is on understanding the injury, and its implications and complications, through "an imaging approach." Complete with hundreds of superb MR images and CT scans, and clear full-color drawings, the authors conclude with a look into the future, defining clinical trends and research directions. Spinal Trauma -- with its broad scope, practical imaging approach, and current focus -- is designed to enhance confidence and accuracy, making it essential reading for clinicians and radiologists at all levels.

Written by an interdisciplinary team of experts in ear, nose, and throat trauma; oral and maxillofacial surgery; neurosurgery; and accident surgery, this book is a state-of-the-art manual on the diagnostic, treatment, and therapeutic techniques available to manage trauma injuries to the head and neck. This book features more than 240 illustrations, most in color, and step-by-step discussions of the initial management, evaluation, and examination of the patient, followed by a thorough collection of flow-charts and checklists. In each chapter the authors present the surgical anatomy, pathomechanism and classification, clinical signs and symptoms, functional tests, diagnostic imaging, as well as other appropriate diagnostic measures. Head and Neck Trauma covers everything from wound management to the latest surgical techniques and their complications. The authors also discuss the medical and technical aspects of trauma management, including antibiotic therapy, grafting and osteosynthesis materials, and the assessment of posttraumatic functional disorders. This beautifully illustrated reference belongs in every emergency room and trauma center library and is an essential tool for any medical professional treating patients with head and neck injuries.

Current research on the pathophysiological mechanisms of brain trauma is at the vanguard of neuroscience research. Clinical trials in head trauma are being conducted to determine the potential effectiveness of numerous drugs, with major results projected over the next few years. Unfortunately, no existing book presents the topic of head trauma with both a summary of the science and an extension of these findings into clinical applications. Head Trauma: Basic, Preclinical, and Clinical Directions fills the void in the literature on this subject. Providing an overview of the major modalities in head trauma therapeutics, this book not only offers a comprehensive presentation of the science in this area but also contains the most up-to-date discussion regarding the basis for experimental and clinical pharmacological treatment of head trauma. Chapters cover basic mechanisms, preclinical targets, clinical aspects with information on efficacy studies, and a straightforward, easy-to-follow presentation of the side effects and potency ratios. In addition, a list of major Web sites of interest and importance to neurotrauma researchers is included. Additional topics reviewed in Head Trauma: Basic, Preclinical, and Clinical Directions include: * In vitro models of traumatic brain injury * Receptor-based mechanisms in head trauma * Mitochondrial dysfunction following traumatic brain injury * Epidemiology and economics of head trauma * Guidelines for medical and surgical management of head trauma patients used throughout the world * Perspectives on the future of head trauma therapeutics * And much more With this book, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurophysiologists, and neuroscientists now have a definitive reference on the subject of head trauma.
