About the book
The aim of this book is to review the surgical anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system, with special entasis on their anatomical variations. The idea is to provide not also to the anatomist but particularly to the surgeon, a detailed description of all that has to be known to better understand the symptoms derived from any central or peripheral nervous system damage. This will help to decide the most suitable treatment strategy to be applied and in case a surgical procedure is considered, the best surgical corridor to use. The deep and thorough anatomical knowledge will allow as to better understand why this particular patient has no symptoms as he/she might be having an anatomical variation that makes this possible. In the case of the central nervous system thorough knowledge of the interconnecting pathways with help us decide how to remove a brain glioma and to figure out which neuromonitoring procedure has to be used to preserve the neurological function. To summarize, a deep anatomical knowledge will help us to offer to our patients much better results.
