Engaging and paradigm shifting in approach, this book argues that disruptive thinking can improve teaching and learning by using easy, doable, practical, hands-on novel strategies. You´ll begin with an unusual, unpopular thought that will cause people to be uncomfortable, backpedal and forget about unpopularity. Each section of this book begins with a carefully selected relevant quotation (often a one liner) from the public domain that is meant to leave you stunned; provide food for thought; and better facilitate internalising the disruptive ideas presented in that particular section. For confidentiality and anonymity, pseudonyms are used to detail students´ personal experiences with disruptive thinking. Throughout the book, the masqueline gender is conveniently used for both males and females. The text is intentionally interspaced with relevant shareware graphics (exhibits) from the public domain, operating under the Creative Commons Copyright licenses that serve as stimulants for disruption, innovation, engagement and personal pleasure.
From detachable balloons and GDC coils to the recent advent of flow diversion, practitioners of have endovascular neurosurgery been fortunate to work in an era of rapid and exciting advances. The first commercially available flow diverter in the U.S. was approved specifically for a small subset of cerebral aneurysms. Recent experience has demonstrated its utility in treating challenging or otherwise untreatable aneurysms, safely and efficaciously. The design of these devices requires learning radically different methods than those used in the deployment of other, non-braided stents. Flow Diversion of Cerebral Aneurysms by Min Park, Philipp Taussky, Felipe Albuquerque, and Cameron McDougall provides step-by-step guidance on utilization of flow diversion technology in clinical practice. Reflecting the combined experience and knowledge of pioneers in neurointerventional surgery, this comprehensive book fills a gap in available resources. Twenty-one chapters cover fundamentals to advanced concepts - historical perspective to future developments. Key Features More than 250 high quality graphics and illustrative case studies reinforce key concepts Techniques and nuances of Pipeline, Silk (Balt Extrusion), Surpass Streamline, and Flow-Redirection Endoluminal Device (FRED) deployment An overview of current flow diversion devices, discussion of coil embolization versus flow diversion, off-label uses, adjuvant approaches, and hemodynamic modificationsPharmacology, flow diversion grading scales, and post-procedure radiographic imaging Clinical pearls on ruptured aneurysms, intraprocedural/postprocedural complications, and management of aneurysm residuals The ultimate goal of incorporating cutting-edge flow diversion techniques into the aneurysm treatment paradigm is improved efficacy and patient outcome. The knowledge gleaned from this outstanding resource will help residents and fellows learn to deploy flow diverters for the first time and enable seasoned clinicians to expand their neurointerventional radiology skills.
