Recent clinical experience and tremendous technical advances make it more imperative than ever that operators performing embolization have a sound background in functional neuroanatomy and clinical evaluation in addition to technical training. This book provides a description of vascular anatomy that will permit the accurate assessment of variations and functional territories and will make the prediction of the risks and management of cerebral vascular disease possible. Through this type of anatomical analysis every potential arrangement in cerebral vascular development can be predicted. Thus, endovascular procedures in the spinal cord and brain can be best planned and performed. Pierre Lasjaunias, Alejandro Berenstein, and Karel ter Brugge are highly committed to both research and teaching in the clinical field of neurovascular diseases. The first volume of the second edition of Surgical Neuroangiography combines the previous volumes 1 and 3 in one book.
"The authors have produced an easy-to-read text and high-quality illustrative examples … . The book’s greatest value is its integration of the understanding of the function underlying the morphological description. … One could not think of a neuroradiologist who would not find this reference to be useful, or a practising physician who would not benefit from having the anatomical information and clinical significance. I recommend this book in the highest possible terms."

"In this book the vascular anatomy with its many variations is described in a detailed, but very elegant and fascinating way. It has a provocative way of presentation by which the student is stimulated to think over and over again what has been read. … Lay-out, printing and illustrations, including many helpful schemes, are of high quality. The references and subject index are complete and accessible. This book is strongly advocated for all neuroscientists active in the field of vascular diseases … ."

"The long-awaited arrival of this book is a publishing event. … improved layout and often clearer legends for the figures do add to its readability. … I would recommend the purchase of the new volume, even if its predecessor is far from being redundant. In short, I love this stimulating erudite … book, ... what would I do without it? This book will be an important guide … and as such belongs in every neuroradiology department."
