The introduction of the endoscope for neurosurgical procedures began with great promise. It was developed to provide a magnified anatomical view of the ventricular system in a minimally invasive manner. The early endoscopes were too primitive for the majority of procedures performed today. The advent of illumination, optical systems, and modern endoscopes allow the neurosurgeon to perform these previously inoperable cases. This book introduces all aspects of the modern endoscope system, physics of optics, and all the techniques of intracranial neuroendoscopy. This is a must-have book for all levels of surgeons, residents, operating room staff, and anyone who wants to learn about endoscopy and its potential applications.

Review

  • G. Narenthiran MB ChB BSc(MedSci) MRCSE, Southampton, Annals of Neurosurgery, 2009, 9(4): 1 (2009):
    "What is the role of books in a rapidly advancing field as neurosurgery? While the latest facts can be gleaned from journals, books are still indispensable. Good books not only deliver a coherent narrative on the subject matter but also inspire the reader. In "Neuroendoscopy of the Central Nervous system", the seasoned neuroendoscopist will find useful information to enhance his/her practice. The book is well written and beautifully illustrated...I think every resident should own a copy of this book. Those running neuroendoscopic courses might consider including this book in their course manual. I am sure this book would be the foundation of many future neuroendoscopists and congratulate the authors on a fine accomplishment."
