This book reports proceedings of a highly structured, but informal, workshop on cerebral aneurysms held in Giessen/Bad Nauheim, Germany, on March 4 and 5, 1979. It is the third in the series organized by Professor Pia, the other two concerned with cerebral angiomas (1974) and spinal angiomas (1975).
The field of aneurysms and subarachnoid hemorrhage is well covered. Most of the experts were in attendance, and their contributions comprehensively address essentially all relevant topics. In controversial areas such as timing of surgery, the spectrum of views is presented.
Some of the material in this book, such as that pertaining to pathophysiology and treatment of vasospasm, will be rapidly outdated (we may hope) as our understanding of the problems mature and more effective therapeutic modalities become available; but other sections, such as those dealing with history, morphology, and classification, will have lasting value.
