Here is complete coverage of state-of-the-art surgical techniques for the spine
and peripheral nerves. This atlas engages the full range of approaches --
anterior, antero-lateral, posterior, and postero-lateral -- for operations on
peripheral nerves and in every area of the spine.
Each of the seven sections of
the atlas opens with in-depth discussion of pathology, etiology and differential
diagnosis conveying the underlying scientific principles of diseases and
conditions of the spine and peripheral nerves. The authors then present
technique-oriented chapters containing step-by-step descriptions of surgical
procedures. These chapters delineate the goals, indications, contraindications,
anesthesia considerations, positions, as well as the advantages and
disadvantages of each technique in a concise manner, ideal for the busy
practitioner seeking review.
Beautifully illustrated with more than 1,200 images,
including 811 full-color drawings, this authoritative text covers all
of the critical issues involved in surgeries for the spine and peripheral
nerves. It will be an invaluable asset to neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons and
residents seeking a carefully edited, didactic atlas.
