This comprehensive monograph describes the experience gained through the treatment of patients with spinal tumors over a 25-year period. It covers clinical presentations and neuroradiological features of intramedullary, extramedullary and extradural spinal tumors. Furthermore, it provides step-by-step intraoperative photographs to describe surgical strategies and techniques, and gives detailed statistical analyses on postoperative outcomes by focussing on postoperative complications as well as short-term and long-term results. A reliable reference, this book will be of great interest to neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, neuromolecular biologists, neurophysiotherapists and occupational therapists.
