Neurosurgery By Example: Neurotrauma has great value in its case-based format and in following the process of each step of patient care, starting with initial evaluation and early treatment and going through complication management. It demonstrates the importance of using literature- and guidelinebased protocols but, perhaps more importantly, knowing when it is appropriate to deviate from these pathways to best serve each patient. * S.
