Book Description

The management of tumors in and adjacent to the skullbase is challenging given the complex and critically important anatomy of the region and the wide diversity of tumor pathologies that may be encountered. To help navigate the complexities of contemporary multidisciplinary management of these patients, Drs. Hanna and DeMonte bring you Comprehensive Management of Skull Base Tumors, a comprehensive guide filled with updated information from authorities around the world.

Comprehensive Management of Skull Base Tumors is divided into three sections consisting of:

  • general principles
  • site specific surgery
  • tumor specific management

Filled with scientific tables and lavishly illustrated, this text is written with an emphasis on surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, and will appeal to all neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, ophthalmologists, medical and radiation oncologists, and radiologists.
