Neurosurgical Emergencies Second Edition pdf
Thirteen years ago, under the publications program of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), the author produced the first edition (two volumes) of Neurosurgical Emergencies. The topic had not been previously addressed in a monographic form, and those two little volumes enjoyed gratifyingly broad acceptance and favorable (mostly) reviews; they were bestsellers, at least by neurosurgical standards. After the first edition, Neurosurgical Emergencies Second Edition pdf was published, which provided me I had the privilege of chairing the AANS Publications Committee and steered it through some difficult financial times.
One of the major products for the new Thieme partnership was a second, updated edition of Neurosurgical
Emergencies. It has taken some time to complete the effort, punctuated primarily by my change of venue from chairman at the University of Oklahoma to the chairman at Temple University in Philadelphia.
The Neurosurgical Emergencies Second Edition pdf considered the previous manuscripts carefully and
revised, replaced, and expanded as Author thought best, to bring forth a genuinely modern and updated volume. It
is the editor’s and the publisher’s sincere hope that current and future generations of readers will find the product useful and worth the effort.
The chapter authors and the publications team have all been most patient in the creation of this project. As is always true with an edited text, the organizational framework and overall design are my own, but the actual knowledge base is the sum of the individual chapter authors’ contributions, and great thanks are due them for their excellent contributions. All of them are friends and esteemed colleagues. Author stand ready to produce the third edition if and when the time seems right, but for now, I offer this one as the most current and comprehensive treatment of Neurosurgical Emergencies that we could assemble.
