This comprehensive reference provides essential clinical information for planning and performing the full spectrum of cervical spine surgeries. Here, in one convenient volume, you'll receive expert, step-by-step guidance in both open and minimally invasive procedures, as well as instruction in relevant anatomy, instrumentation, and underlying principles. An Invaluable Resource Divided into five parts, the book begins with basic considerations and includes chapters on anatomy, biomechanics, minimally invasive versus open surgery: choosing the best approach, and image-guided spinal navigation for cervical techniques. Part II focuses on arthoplasty techniques and includes chapters on patient selection for single- and multiple-level procedures, as well as chapters devoted to different arthroplasty devices and their clinical applications. Part III is devoted to techniques using biomaterials for cervical fusion with chapters on resorbable cervical interbody spacers, resorbable anterior plates, bone morphogenic protein, and mesh, bone, PEEK, and carbon fiber. Part IV includes several clinical chapters on different minimally invasive techniques for cervical fusion. The book concludes with Part V on regional and junctional challenges.
