The forthcoming publication "Neurosurgery for medical students" is intended for students of medical faculties. Basic information about neurosurgery will also be obtained by students of related fields /dentistry/, as well as graduates of medical faculties at the beginning of their clinical practice. These are peer-reviewed educational texts.
The reviewers are:
1. Assoc. MUDr. Marek Lacko, PhD., head of the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology of the Locomotor System. He recommended publishing the work without comments.
2. Assoc. MUDr. Jozef Výrostko, CSc. He recommended publishing the work without comments.
The teaching text is divided into ten chapters. They are further divided into subsections.
The first chapter is focused on the history of surgery, followed by the history of neurosurgery. In this chapter, the author reminds us that operated skulls belong to the oldest evidence of the surgical activity of our ancestors.
The second and third chapters are devoted to diagnostics and basic operational performance.
In order to understand the pathological-physiological events, it is necessary to carefully study the fourth chapter, in which the author describes the basic pathological mechanisms that act on the surface but also in the depth of the brain tissues.
The fifth chapter is devoted to a serious issue - congenital defects of the brain, spinal cord and their supporting structures.
No less serious problems for neurosurgeons are tumors of the CNS, peripheral nerves, skull and spine. These are described in the sixth chapter.
In the seventh chapter, vascular diseases of the CNS are described: the author describes aneurysms of cerebral vessels, their diagnosis and treatment, then vascular malformations of the brain, arteriovenous malformations of the brain and, last but not least, spinal arteriovenous malformations.
Chapter 8 is the most comprehensive in terms of content. It provides information about the injury of patients during an accident. About their severity, diagnosis and possible treatment - conservative and surgical.
Chapter 9 is devoted to a no less serious issue, namely degenerative diseases of the spine.
In the 10th chapter, the author deals with the latest methods of chronic pain treatment and epilepsy surgery.
