This volume is a compilation of papers presented at the Tenth International Symposium on Brain Edema held on October 20-23, 1996, in San Diego, California. This follows the sequence of meetings that was initiated 31 years ago in the First International Symposium held in Vienna. Subsequent symposiums were held in Mainz, Montreal, Berlin, Groningen, Tokyo, Baltimore, Bern, and Tokyo CY okohama). A considerable number of papers was chosen from over 100 papers that were received. The organizers wish to thank the Advisory Committee for the excellent work done in selection of the papers. We also wish to thank all the persons who contributed to the success of the Tenth International Symposium, especially the staff who worked behind the scenes. These papers were reviewed, edited, approved or disapproved by the Editorial Board. Those manuscripts that were felt not pertinent to this publication were not accepted by the Editorial Board. Therefore, the excellent quality of those that are in the book are a reflection of the authors' dedication and work and that of those of the Editorial Board in their review process.For the reader's convenience, the papers are structured according to the various disease processes which are associated with the primary topic: hypertension, hydrocephalus, infection, ischemia, tumor, etc. We do hope that the reader will enjoy the articles and that they will provide an impetus and insight for future work.


"... a comprehensive survey of present investigations in the area of brain edema. The graphs and illustrations are clearly reproduced. It complements other previous proceedings on brain edema and should be recommended for both the clinician and the neurosurgeon who want to obtain updated information on the subject." Acta Neurologica Belgica "... This book succeeds in providing a comprehensive and up to date reference of the disease processes which are associated with brain edema ... a comprehensive guide of what research is being carried on topics related to brain edema ..." British Journal of Anaesthesia "... an excellent collection of papers that would be useful in any research library ..." British Journal of Neurosurgery "... the information the book contains is certainly an up-to-date collection of data on different aspects including ischemia, trauma, cellular swelling, and brain edema associated with neoplasms. Sections on therapy, molecular mechanisms and blood-brain barrier issues also present state-of-the-art information. This excellent selection of papers certainly has more to offer than the Proceedings format generally adopted, with only Abstracts available. The short monographs present the authors' summaries of the most essential information in a very easy-to-read format. This book should be very useful for researchers and clinicians who are interested in different aspects of brain edema". Child's Nervous System "... beautifully produced with an attractive dust jacket, paper of high quality, clear layout, some colour figures and a good author and keyword index. The presented material is lucid and easy to read ... Brain Edema X deals in detail with what is currently important in the interesting field ... I enjoyed reading the book ..."
