This book Microneuroanatomy and Surgery is written by Feres Chaddad-Neto, Marcos Devanir Silva da Costa. Anatomy is the basis of surgery. Our neurosurgical procedures are performed on brains hidden within a towering skull, but once breached, we enter otherworldly splendor. Neuroanatomy has this seductive beauty that even decades of familiarity cannot diminish. I still marvel at its complexity and never tire of my workplace. When a surgical microscope is added to magnify and illuminate the neuroanatomy, this realm becomes even more exquisite. Textbooks rarely do microneuranatomy justice because there is nothing like the real thing. Neuroanatomy textbooks are common and quite useful for medical students studying the brain for the first time. But microneurosurgical anatomy textbooks are rare, especially the good ones that relate to the procedures neurosurgeons perform and make neurosurgeons perform better.
According to the author: The book focuses on microsurgical anatomy, not just anatomy for anatomy’s sake. It begins in the gyri and sulci, then moves to the lobes of the brain, the central nucleus, ventricles, brainstem, and cerebellum. It also includes excellent descriptions. of the cisterns and parasellar and pineal regions. The textbook is a beautiful mix of cadaveric dissections, radiographic images, case examples, and operative photographs. A thorough reading of this material cannot but turn the reader into an enlightened and more knowledgeable neurosurgeon.

Topics of this Edition
Microneuroanatomy is fundamental to understanding the brain. In many cases, transmitting neuroanatomical knowledge is a difficult task to achieve, but this is mainly due to those who have the task of transmitting this knowledge in classes and conferences, or in books.
In reality, neuroanatomy is simple and should be understood as a tool for approaching the different areas of the brain, not as an obstacle, and the only way to overcome this problem is to correlate neuroanatomy with various types of diseases (arteriovenous malformations, aneurysms, tumors, cavernomas, hydrocephalus, etc.)
