Brain Tumors: An Encyclopedic Approach, Expert Consult – Online and Print, 3e
It is a real pleasure to see this comprehensive, encyclopedic treatise on the ever-fascinating subject of Brain Tumors reach its Third Edition. The recognition of the problems posed by the diagnosis, treatment and pathogenesis of brain tumors has steadily increased among scientists, physicians and surgeons, and the public in general. As health care access and expertise increase, and with the mixed blessing of information from the internet, more and more brain tumors are being diagnosed, and their treatment has steadily improved, particularly regarding the quality of life of our patients.
This edition continues to be divided into segments on Basic Principles and Individual Tumor Types. Each chapter has been assiduously updated, key points have been emphasized and pertinent references have been highlighted. Many new chapters have been included, along with many new authors, all reflecting the continuous change in concepts, techniques and outcomes for our patients. Novel insights into molecular neuropathology, the role of cancer stem cells, changes in tumor classification, new models of brain tumors, and avenues for future progress are included. The goal of making each chapter authoritative, comprehensive and interesting to a variety of readers has been achieved, and hopefully will be widely appreciated.
As always, we are indebted to the hard work of all the contributors, and of the editorial and production staff at Elsevier who have seen this impressive volume through to final publication. We are continually grateful to our colleagues, trainees, patients, and to our wives, families and others who have supported this endeavor.
