An exquisitely illustrated guide to AVMs

Honorable Mention at 2015 PROSE Awards!

This sequel to Dr. Lawton's best-selling Seven Aneurysms focuses on microsurgical resection techniques for AVMs found in the lobes and deep regions of the brain. It categorizes the techniques into subtypes to simplify the broad spectrum of brain AVMs neurosurgeons may encounter. The book is organized into three sections: The Tenets, which establishes eight steps for AVM resection; The Seven Arteriovenous Malformations, which describes the anatomical terrain and surgical strategies for thirty-two AVM subtypes; and The Selection section, in which Dr. Lawton discusses what he believes to be the keys to successful AVM surgery: good patient selection and best application of multiple treatment modalities.

Key Features:

  • Includes more than 700 spectacular full-color illustrations developed exclusively for this book
  • Creates a system for conceptualizing and approaching AVMs
  • Illustrates a stepwise process for AVM resection using strategic "battle plans"

Summarizing the common AVMs encountered in practice, neurosurgeons and neurosurgical residents will find this hybrid atlas-text to be an essential part of their armamentarium.

In this book, Dr. Michael Lawton shares his expertise and lessons learned from his years of dedication to vascular neurosurgery. He describes his take on AVMs in the preface as a battle and his book contains many take-home lessons. His presentation is enhanced by the spectacular intraoperative color images and illustrations drawn by Kenneth X. Probst. With no reservations, I highly recommend this book to all neurosurgeons. --Doody's Enterprises, Inc.
