E-BOOK DESCRIPTION
Intrinsic brain tumors can affect diverse areas of the brain. Accessing and resecting these lesions can be done using different surgical techniques. These ways include standard asleep craniotomy with a fundamental understanding of eloquent regions, awake brain mapping to identify and avoid these eloquent cortical and subcortical areas, and minimally invasive approaches using tubular retractors, endoscopic techniques, and laser interstitial therapy, among others. As knowledge of these eloquent regions are becomingmore and more elucidated through imaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and tractography as well as cortical and subcortical mapping, it is becoming essential to understand ways to minimize injuries to these regions. The body of work from multiple authors, multiple institutions, and multiple countries in this book focuses on the different surgical approaches to various intrinsic neoplasms as explained by experts in the field and experts in the particular approaches. In the first section of the book, we will focus on anatomy of the brain namely the cortex, subcortical white matter tracts, ventricles, brainstem, and vascular supplies.

The second section will describe the pathology of tumors that can affect these different brain regions, as well as developing animal models to better study these diseases and tumor genetics. The third section will describe pre, intra, and postop imaging to help evaluate lesions, eloquent regions surrounding the pathology, and ways to identify potential complications associated with surgical approaches. The next section will focus on controversies in the management of different pathologies including low and high grade gliomas, as well as brain metastases. Lastly, we will describe in depth different surgical approaches for open and minimally invasive surgery from experts in the field including awake motor and language mapping, intraoperative MRI, trans-sulcal techniques, keyhole surgeries, and endoscopic and exoscopic guided surgeries. This book is meant to serve as a comprehensive guide for neurosurgeons, fellows, residents, and other medical staff who participate in the care of patients with intrinsic brain lesions. This will provide anatomical descriptions of the brain, imaging techniques to identify brain tumors, pathology that affects these areas, and approaches to these lesions. We have had international experts on these various subjects contribute to this book in order to provide the most up-to-date information from leaders in the field. We hope you enjoy this book as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
