  • A wealth of color illustrations: 3000 figures, of which 1000 in color
  • Complete and exhaustive coverage of every aspect of pediatric hydrocephalus
  • Impressive panel of authors from all over the world, representing the Gotha of Pediatric Neurosurgery and Hydrocephalus experts worldwide
Since the first edition of this book, the impressive development of neuroendoscopy has dramatically changed the surgical approach to hydrocephalus, the main pathology pediatric neurosurgeons worldwide have to deal with.

This revised and updated second edition, written by worldwide leaders in the field, fully reflects this progress: not only existing chapters have been reviewed whenever required, but new ones have been added thus taking into consideration every aspect of hydrocephalus, even when associated with the rarest pathologies.

The general part include now more data on history, biomechanics, circulation and molecular basis. Special consideration for fetal surgery has been added, whereas the section on neonatal hydrocephalus has been further developed. Section 4, on the different pathologies associated with hydrocephalus, has been significantly expanded. and is now amazingly detailed, as well as the section on shunt treatment. Infections are now dealt with in two different chapters, and special attention to shunt complications (the nightmare of every Pediatric Neurosurgeon.) is paid in five different chapters. A very complete overview of the endoscopic treatment, that will surely draw the reader’s attention thanks to the wonderful full color images, is also included.

Written by acknowledged experts in the field, this title is an indispensable tool for all those facing this pathology in their daily practice.
