This first-of-its-kind volume focuses on the anatomy, imaging, and surgery of the dural venous sinuses and the particular relevance to neurosurgery and trauma surgery. Knowledge of the fine clinical anatomy involved in neurosurgery and skull base surgery has progressed greatly in recent years, and this title reflects new information of particular importance to neurosurgeons, trauma surgeons, neurologists, interventional radiologists, and others who need a complete, up-to-date understanding of this complex anatomical area.
