Spinal Instrumentation Challenges and Solutions Ebook PDF

Spinal Instrumentation Challenges and Solutions Ebook PDF Spine surgery has evolved dramatically over the last 20
years and particularly since the last edition. Innovative
techniques, from the use of the operating microscope to
image-guidance, have changed our approach to problems
within the operating room. In addition, novel instrumen-
tation techniques (from odontoid screws and lateral mass
screws to sacroiliac fixation) have improved the surgical
management of countless patients. Collectively, these
changes have led to the advancement of spinal surgery.
A greater understanding of spinal biomechanics and dis-
ease processes of the spine has led to a rapid advancement
in the technology of spinal instrumentation. Improved spinal
instrumentation, in some circumstances, has led to better
patient care and contributed to improved functional out-
comes. As the number of spinal implant constructs has
increased, the decision-making process regarding appropri-
ate utilization has become more difficult. The first edition
of this book was intended to allow for a comparison of
various systems in order to facilitate decision-making.
To accommodate the rapid advancement of instrumen-
tation systems since thelast edition, thelayout of the text has
changed significantly. There are so many spinal instrumen-
tation companies and systems that it is no longer possible to
categorize each system. Furthermore, spinal instrumenta-
tion techniques are now taught in training courses.
The purpose of the second edition is to educate the
reader on the various complications of spinal instrumenta-
tion. Each chapter iswritten to describe theinstrumentation
complications associated with a particular anatomical or
clinical situation. The chapters are intended to educate
readers on the cause, diagnosis, and avoidance of instru-
mentation complications.
As in the original edition, the surgical anatomy and
approaches described in each chapter will assist the medical
student as well as the house staff officer. Anatomy and
approaches may be hard to conceptualize without a specific
clinical application. In this text, the authors describe the
relevant anatomical landmarks that must be visualized in
order to safely apply spinal instrumentation. With clear
examples of surgical approaches and instrumentation for
particular spinal problems, this text facilitates the association
of classroom knowledge and clinical application. Because of
this, in addition to the summaries provided in each chapter,
this text will assist the medical student, nurse, and house
officer in preparing for the oral and written boards.
