The Practical Management of Low-grade Primary Brain Tumors
Jack P. Rock
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1999 - Medical - 244 pages
Gliomas (astrocytomas) are a common type of brain tumour treated by neurosurgeons. This volume offers practical guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with these slow-growing, non-malignant brain tumours. Algorithms and case histories apply theory to real-world challenges and aid in diagnosis, staging and treatment. Areas covered include: diagnostic imaging; surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy; epilepsy and low-grade gliomas; and genetic counselling. A chapter on guidelines and outcome analysis offers information that the reader can put to work in clinical practice.
