Rekonstruktive Mikrogefasschirurgie – Edgar Biemer
Der Wert einer neuen Operationstechnik zeigt sich nicht allein darin, dass sie im einzelnen Fall gelingt. Erst nach einer gewissen Anzahl von Eingriffen und nach einer gen auen Beobachtung des Resultats stellt sich heraus, ob sie allgemein praktiziert werden kann, ob Auf wand und Effekt in einem vernunftigen Verhaltnis zueinander stehen. N ur wenn auch das der Fall ist, kann man ein neues operatives Vorge hen in das Repertoire einer operativen...

Neurosurgery of Arteriovenous Malformations and Fistulas – Robert Schmid-Elsaesser, Alexander Muacevic, Hartmut Bruckmann, Berndt Wowra
Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and fistulas (AVF) differ from all other pathology affecting the central nervous system by their high-flow arteriovenous shunts. Permanent occlusion of these shunts is the essence and the challenge of therapy. Much progress has been made since the first neurosurgical efforts to deal with these problems. Endovascular therapy and radiosurgery became accepted alternatives or adjuncts to surgery. In many instances...

Congenital Displacement of the Hip Joint – John A. Wilkinson
If I have seen further, it is by standing on ye shoulders of giants.
