Overview

Written by internationally recognized experts, this book is a comprehensive, practical guide to prevention, recognition, and management of complications in spine surgery. Sections cover the cervical spine and the thoracolumbar/lumbosacral spine and discuss the full range of complications that may be encountered, including those associated with the newest technologies, procedures, and instrumentation.

Each chapter focuses on a specific type of problem and presents "how-to" strategies for avoiding and managing the problem in specific surgical procedures. Of special note are the detailed discussions of complications related to instrumentation. Each chapter includes extensive, up-to-date references. More than 150 illustrations complement the text.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book focuses on the complications associated with spine operations.
Purpose: The purpose of this new work is to educate readers on how to prevent, recognize, and manage problems associated with spine surgery. These worthy objectives are only partly met.
Audience: The book is written mainly for spine surgeons, and orthopedic and neurosurgery residents can benefit from its message. The editors, Howard S. An, MD, Morton International Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Director, Division of Spine Surgery and Spine Fellowship Program, Rush University Medical Center, and Louis G. Jenis, MD, Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery, Tufts University School of Medicine, are spine surgeons who are fully qualified to write on this subject.
Features: Sections cover the cervical spine and thoracolumbar and lumbosacral spine. A third section deals with miscellaneous disorders such as vertebral augmentation and perioperative morbidity. Topics that are thoroughly covered include soft tissue complications associated with cervical and lumbar approaches, pedicle screw complications, pseudoarthrosis, and problems associated with harvesting of iliac crest bone graft. Missing is any information about cervical and lumbar disc replacement surgery and spinal complications of the growing spine in children. The chapters are supported by extensive and current references. The authors make adequate use of illustrations, tables and photographs.
Assessment: As in most first edition efforts, this book has areas of deficiencies which I am sure will be corrected in future editions. The authors correctly devote parts of each chapter to prevention of complications, which in the case of spine surgery can be devastating to surgeon and patient. This work has an important role to play in the overall care of the surgical spine patient. I highly recommend it to all aspiring spine surgeons. Medical science libraries are encouraged to purchase this valuable work.
