Principles of Neurological Surgery
Principles of Neurological Surgery is in its third edition because of the popular demand of our students. As I walk through the hospital and operating room, I am thrilled to see the previous editions being read by medical students, house oficers, nurses, and practicing neurosurgeons. It is for these treasured students, young and old, novice and experienced, that this book is intended. It is to be used to guide both those learning and those teaching. We are indebted to our students for inspiring us to perform at our best every day, for in the operating room our best is required by our patients all the time. At the end of the day, we hope this edition contributes to the modest goal of shaping more effective clinicians, ultimately for the beneit of our patients.

The world of medical education has evolved rapidly, and our students do not necessarily learn in the same manner we once learned. We have listened carefully to their constructive comments and re-created a book that addresses their individual approach to learning basic neurological surgery principles.
Scientiic information is growing at an exponential rate.
Thus, mastering the wide spectrum of neurological surgery is arguably even more challenging for the current generation of students than it was for our generation. A host of excellent encyclopedic neurological surgery reference texts currently are available. Our work is intended to be comprehensive without being encyclopedic. We hope it could be the sort of tool that students can use every day of their training and then carry into practice. We realize that the internet and searchable peer-reviewed literature have often supplanted multivolume collections. So we took a different approach with this text.
It is our goal to make the complex and broad spectrum of neurological surgery more comprehensible by reviewing the surgical principles in a concisely written, template-oriented, and visually attractive format. The text is purposely designed to it in a single volume so that the information is digestible and can be successfully reinforced with subsequent review.
The chapter topics represent both basic core areas and novel subject matter in our rapidly evolving ield. The authors have added CLINICAL PEARLS to their chapters that sum up the critical bullet points of the chapters. The chapters are further supplemented with ive SELECTED KEY REFERENCES from the bibliography, which the authors believe are worthy of in-depth investigation. Furthermore, we have listened to our students’ desire for visual reinforcement and simulation to master psychomotor skills in the operating room. For that reason, we have added video clips for key operations in this textbook. They can be downloaded from the Elsevier website and reviewed at any time from any location by those who desire to augment their understanding of the material.
