Cerebrospinal Fluid and Subarachnoid Space. Volume 1: Clinical Anatomy and Physiology

  • Book

  • October 2022
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
  • ID: 5342264

Cerebrospinal Fluid and Subarachnoid� Space: Volume 1: Clinical Anatomy and Physiology is the first book devoted to the comprehensive clinical anatomy of the cerebrospinal fluid for neurosurgeons, neurologists, and neuroscientists. Knowledge of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the subarachnoid space is necessary for almost all fields of medicine. The book covers a wide swath of topics related to CSF with a focus on topics relevant to neuroscience specialists including researchers, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuroradiologists. Topics span from neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, CSF in different disease states and more. Various fresh and fixed cadaveric photographs helps readers obtain a better understanding of anatomy and complications related to CSF.

Please Note: This is an On Demand product, delivery may take up to 11 working days after payment has been received.

This investigative paradigm in anatomy has resulted in over 1,800 peer reviewed publications from his laboratory. Dr. Tubbs' laboratory has made novel discoveries in human anatomy and in 2018, he was listed as a "hyperprolific author� in the journal Nature. Dr. Tubbs sits on the editorial board of over 10 anatomical journals and over 30 clinical journals and has reviewed for over 150 various scientific journals. He has authored/edited over 50 books and over 80 book chapters primarily in anatomical and neurosurgical textbooks. Lastly, Dr. Tubbs is Chair of the Federative International Programme on Anatomical Terminologies (FIPAT) and oversees six working groups dedicated to this topic.
