Summary note:
"Edward Laws and Jason Sheehan have edited the first comprehensive guide to the management of the large varieties of pathologies that arise in the sellar and parasellar area. Over the past two decades change in management practices have been underpinned by a better understanding of the nature of the pathology, improved imaging and a refinement of both surgical and radiation therapy techniques. The location of the sellar and parasellar region has challenged neurosurgeons (and radiotherapists) to develop innovative refined approaches to the region, often using the best of skull base, endoscopic and microsurgical techniques. These have been utilized within the context of an improved understanding of the pathology, with the imperative that the treatment (or therapy) must optimize control of the pathology, whilst minimizing morbidity"--Provided by publisher.
