    Message from the Editor

    WFNS Newsletter is intended to be a major communication channel for the neurosurgeons of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies. As such, it is essential that you provide feedback on how the Newsletter can be of greatest benefit to you. From feedback provided to the WFNS Central Office in Nyon, many of you would like more academic content in each issue. Thus the focus of this issue is “Neurotrauma” since this field is of relevance to most neurosurgeons worldwide.

    Message from the President of the XVI World Congress of
    Neurosurgery, 20-25 August 2017


    Dear Colleagues, It is an honor and privilege to reach neurosurgeons around the world through this issue of the WFNS Newsletter. I would like to thank the friends and delegates who, in 2011, elected Istanbul as the host city of the 2017 WFNS World Congress of Neurosurgery. Since then we have been working very hard to organize a perfect congress that will be remembered for its best possible scientific program and very attractive social events. I am grateful for your support and suggestions for a high quality and productive meeting.

    Since 2013 we have shared the developments with you via the web page of our congress, www.wfns2017.com.
