About the book

The subject matter and aims of the book Skull Base Surgery is to give a contemporary look at neuroradiological imaging and diagnostics. In the treatment it is necessary to summarize and compare the current possibilities of microsurgery, endoscopy, to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of both modalities. The aim is to incorporate the possibilities of complementary methods of radiosurgery and endovascular neuroradiology into the management of individual diseases. Emphasis should be placed on the use of current prognostic markers in adjuvant therapy. It is important to summarize current methods and possibilities of neurorehabilitation and compensation of neurological and oculomotor deficits, and to evaluate the quality of life.

This book aims to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state of diagnosis, indications for treatment, including complementary methods (gamma knife, cyber knife, proton beam, etc.) based on evidence-based medicine in the field of cranial pathology. Emphasis will be placed on the long-term results of all available and compared treatment methods.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
