Book Description :

10-20% of spinal surgery patients will experience one or more complications from their surgery. These complications are intimately tied to the specifics of their surgery, their underlying pathology, surgical approach, and the devices or instrumentation utilized. Further complicating matters are the bewildering array of hardware that is utilized to treat spine disease, with new approaches constantly becoming available. The goal of Specialty Imaging: Postoperative Spine is to provide a broad overview of the role of advanced imaging for the diagnosis and management of the postoperative spine patient. Thus this book covers normal (preoperative) spine anatomy, gives brief synopses of common surgical approaches, and covers the appearance of the normal postoperative state. Emphasis is given to the imaging and diagnosis of local spine and adjacent soft tissue postoperative complications, as well as remote complications and general medical complications. This is not a surgical textbook. The surgical descriptions are purposely superficial, and geared toward radiologists who want a general understanding of the clinical rationale for the surgery and the surgical approach. This book is intended for practicing radiologists, residents, fellows, and anyone who treats postoperative spine patients.

Book Description :

This comprehensive, up-to-date textbook of modern cervical spine surgery describes the standard and advanced techniques recommended by the Cervical Spine Research Society – European Section (CSRS-E) with a view to enabling both young and experienced surgeons to further develop their skills and improve their surgical outcomes. Success in cervical spine surgery depends on the surgeon’s awareness of the main challenges posed by distinct cervical spine diseases, theoretical understanding of treatment concepts, and knowledge of technical options and the related potential for complications. It is the surgeon who has to merge theory and practice to achieve the desired outcome, in each case appraising the details of surgical anatomy and weighing the challenges and complications associated with a surgical technique against the skills that he or she possesses. This excellently illustrated book, written by key opinion makers from the CSRS-E with affiliated surgeons as co-authors, presents the full range of approaches and techniques and clearly identifies indications, precautions, and pitfalls. It will be a superb technical reference for all cervical spine surgeons, whether orthopaedic surgeons or neurosurgeons.

As a result of the increasing number of surgical procedures on the brain, head, neck, and spine, postoperative changes are being encountered more frequently on neuroradiological examinations. However, these findings are often unfamiliar to neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons and can be difficult to interpret. This book, which contains numerous images and to-the-point case descriptions, is a comprehensive yet concise reference guide to postsurgical neuroradiology. It will enable the reader to identify the type of surgery performed and the hardware implanted and to differentiate expected sequelae from complications. Topics reviewed include trauma, tumors, vascular disorders, and infections of the head, neck, and spine; cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities; and degenerative diseases of the spine. This book will serve as a unique and convenient resource for both neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons.

Book Description :

Over the past decade, minimally invasive techniques have developed rapidly and are widely applied in the management of spine disorders. With the development of enabling technologies, including specifically designed spinal retractor systems, intraoperative imaging and navigation technologies, and real-time neural monitoring, minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) techniques are safe, effective and reproducible. Indeed, studies have confirmed the clinical and economic advantages of these procedures. Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery includes detailed discussions of enabling technologies, surgical techniques (including posterior decompression and fusion), approaches to specific diseases and conditions, as well as strategies to manage the unique risks and complications of MISS.

Book Description :

The increased complexity of spinal surgical procedures in recent years has required more sophisticated anesthetic management of patients undergoing these procedures. Spine surgery anesthesia is now recognized as a distinct sub-specialty, increasingly undertaken by general anesthesiologists as well as neuroanesthesiologists. Anesthesia for Spine Surgery describes the anesthetic management and surgical procedures at every vertebral level in both adult and pediatric patients. The most important related considerations are covered, including: • Postoperative pain management • One lung ventilation during anterior thoracic spine surgery • Intraoperative neuromonitoring • Fluid management Additional chapters review the radiological features of normal and abnormal spines, common complications of spine surgery and ASA closed claims relating to spine surgery anesthesia. Written by highly experienced neuroanesthesiologists and spine surgeons, Anesthesia for Spine Surgery is essential reading for trainee and practising anesthesiologists, neuroanesthesiologists and spine surgeons.
