By L. Dade Lunsford, Brian R. Subach, Gerald E. Rodts

Dramatic alterations in spinal stabilization have taken position within the final years and the speed of switch keeps to speed up. This quantity is a wonderful reflect of the evolution of spinal stabilization. It brings jointly the most recent and such a lot finished experiences in minimally-invasive and novel surgical methods and spinal stabilization options. Highlights in new biomaterials together with radiolucent, bioresorbable, and traditional titanium are mentioned through specialists. organic advances together with using bone morphogenetic protein in anterior lumbar interbody fusion in addition to computer-assisted image-guided surgical strategies are validated. The part on instrumentation and approach represents the main up to date advances in surgical procedure and administration of spinal problems. Illustrations integrated in every one bankruptcy rfile those very good papers. since it is a needs to for all surgeons appearing spinal surgical procedure to maintain updated during this fast-paced box this booklet is integral.

Bone substitutes are the most recent focus of this process, in an attempt to minimize the morbidities of donor site harvesting without compromising fusion. Autograft bone, consisting primarily of cancellous and some cortical bone, is the current standard for spinal fusion constructs. However, harvesting autograft usually requires a second incision and involves a risk of associated morbidities, such as infection, blood loss, hematoma formation, neurologic and vascular damage, pain, joint destabilization, and fractures.
