Arteriomalformations in Functional Areas of the Brain by Shokei Yamada

Despite the successful treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) in silent areas of the brain, only recently has the treatment of AVMs in functional areas moved within the scope of neurosurgical treatment. Dr. Yamada's guide, Arteriovenous Malformations in Functional Areas of the Brain, meticulously explores the three clinically-accepted modes of AVM treatment which are used individually or in conjunction with each other: microsurgery, intravascular intervention, and radiosurgery. This book is the culmination of Dr Yamada's desire to promote the multi-disciplinary treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Introduced into this book is the surgical technique that Dr Yamada developed for AVMs in the functional areas. It is based on the hemodynamic anatomy of AVMs relative to the brain, as well as a thorough comprehensive of specific anaesthesia techniques. Each contributing author has individual expertise in the treatment of functional areas of AVMs and related pathophysiology. Contributions from Neurosurgeons neuroradiologists, radiosurgeons, neuroanaesthesiologists and neuropathologists have influenced the various aspects in the field of AVM surgery. With this invaluable guide to surgical techniques for direct intervention to AVMs in functional areas, readers will gain insight into their proper treatment. A pre-requisite for all neurosurgeons and specialists who are considering these surgical procedures and need to become acquainted with the different modes of AVM treatment.


"This volume almost constitutes a monograph on a highly specialized but also very actual subject. For those interested in the overall treatment of Brain AVMs, this volume offers a nice insight into the neurosurgical considerations..."Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery"This extremely useful monograph will provide new and valuable information to vascular neurosurgeons, neuroanesthesiologists, and interventional neuroradiologists."Canadian Journal of Anesthesia

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
