Neurosurgery is a rapidly developing field of medicine. Therefore, staying keeping track of the advancements in the field is paramount for trainees as well as fully trained neurosurgeons. This book, fully available online, is a part of our effort of improving availability of medical information for anyone who needs to keep up-to-date.
Medical information need to be free and we strongly support this objective. Nevertheless, the biggest risk open access is inaccuracy for lack of control so in order to overcome this, each chapter of the book has been carefully reviewed to provide the reader with the complete, accurate and reliable information. We wish to offer our appreciation to our colleagues who consistently contributed to the genesis of this book and shared their expertize with the readers.
We welcome any suggestion and feedback the reader will give us through the web site of the publisher. Finally, I wish to thank Vanessa, my wife, and Alice, my daughter: your support always goes beyond my expectations.
