Largely due to their capacity to provide immediate pain relief in
osteoporotic compression fractures and neoplastic disease of the spine,
vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty have become popular techniques in recent years.
These procedures require minimal incisions and can be performed without general
anesthesia, which adds to their appeal.
This is the first book to cover everything that is currently known about
vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, including patient selection, operative
techniques, complication avoidance, management, outcomes, and more! You will
find extensive discussions of the role of vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty in
acute fractures, non-osteoporotic pathological compression fractures, and burst
fractures. A multidisciplinary panel of spine surgeons, orthopedic surgeons,
neurosurgeons, and interventional radiologists provide their unique
perspectives, along with comparisons of techniques and potential complications
to help you select the right procedure for a particular patient.
Filling a significant gap in literature, this exceptional work provides a
”snapshot” of these modern surgical techniques, with practical guidelines on
using them to provide optimal patient care. It is a state-of-the-art resource
for all informed spine surgeons, radiologists, and neurosurgeons.
