    Advances and Technical Standards In Neurosurgery. Volume 24. Editor In Chieff cohadon. (Pp 57, US$159.00). Published by Springer-Verlag, Wien, 1998. ISBN 3-211-83064-2.

    Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery is sponsored by the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies. The intention is to publish reviews of topics in which recent advances have been made, and to invite acknowledged experts to present in depth accounts of established knowledge in various fields of neurosurgery.

    The advances under review in this volume are the contribution of the septal region to memory, the in vivo metabolic investigation of cerebral gliomas with PET, and the use of image guidance in neurosurgery. In the technical standards section, Professors Valavanis and Yasargil discuss the endovascular treatment of arteriovenous malformations, Dr Guglielmi reports on the interventional neuroradiological treatment of intracranial aneurysms, and Dr Sussman and colleagues describe the management of benign intracranial hypertension.

    This book is aimed primarily at young neurosurgeons, but is an excellent source of reference for those who are already trained. The fact that it is in its 24th volume is a testament to its success in achieving this objective.
