This book is a survey of current microsurgical operative techniques in respect to surgical pathology of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve. There are 76 contributing authors representing multiple disciplines, effecting a broader concept of surgical theory, technique, and results relative to clinical and investigative problems of the central nervous system. Ample discussion of different microscopic mechanisms is provided with emphasis on the importance of illumination, vision, easy maneuverability, and comfort for the surgeon.

The text contains exceptional microscopic illustrations of both normal anatomy and pathologic specimens of the brain stem, posterior fossa cranial nerve tumors, and neoplasms arising within the sella turcica and parasellar areas. Important microsurgical anatomic-pathologic relationships are illustrated and discussed, such as the position of the infundibulum in relation to different parasellar tumors in respect to preserving continuity of the pituitary stalk, and the variants of vascular anatomy and its preservation in posterior fossa
