Now taking pre-publication orders for September 2020 publication.

The forthcoming second edition of Surgery of the Cerebellopontine Angle presents a comprehensive guide to neurosurgical, neuroendovascular and neuroradiological developments in the treatment of conditions and diseases in the cerebellopontine angle (CPA).

Drs. Bambakidis, Megerian, and Spetzler give CPA—the fragile area of the skull base that Harvey Cushing famously described as “the bloody angle”—a multidisciplinary treatment, describing proven and effective clinical approaches to craniotomy, endovascular neurosurgery, and interventional neuroradiology treatment options. Images courtesy of the renowned Barrow Neurological Institute illustrate the contributions from expert specialists in neurosurgery, neurotology, neuroradiology, otolaryngology—head and neck surgery, and endovascular surgery.

Topics covered include intracranial neoplasms such as vestibular schwannoma, foramen magnum menigioma, and temporal bone lesions, and approaches such as endoscopic, retrosigmoid, and translabyrinthine. Readers will find case studies in the surgical management of diseases of the CPA presented in animation and videos accessed with a unique key code. 

The book is arranged in five sections:
Part I. Foundations for Treatment
Part II. Surgical Approaches
Part III. Acoustic Neuromas
Part IV. Nonschwannomatous Lesions of the CPA
Part V. Cases and Approaches (Animations and Videos atlas)
Appendix: Anatomic Dissection
