Microsurgical operations in the vicinity of the bulb or its intraaxial contents is frequently fraught with operator angst and catastrophic neurologic deficits. Accordingly, the most rudimentary of Nature’s beautiful creations also happens to be among its most complex and delicate. The brainstem houses the core circuitry generating sympathetic tone and a breathing rhythm which maintain Life. The reticular activating propriobulbar circuitry diffusely projects and activates cerebral cortex directly and through thalamic relay nuclei to maintain Vigilance. Cranial nerve motor nuclei control the movements of the head and neck and cranial sensory nuclei represent the initial relays transmitting somatosensory information of the face and cephaloviscera to the ventral posterior medial thalamic nuclei. These nuclei are complexly, though discretely and wisely organized within its interior and multimodally modulated by suprabulbar and peripheral influences. Haphazard microsurgical maneuvers or the slightest transgression upon one of its critical structures may hasten and expedite a patient’s rapid demise. Fortuitously, innovation in microsurgical techniques by the works of Emeritus Professor Dr. Robert F. Spetzler and Emeritus Professor Dr. Albert I. Rhoton has provided us with an elegant set of operative steps to achieve the safe and effective removal of pathology sans deficit, rendering the safe removal of previously inoperable neoplastic and vascular lesions commonplace and facile. Familiarity, versatility, and comfort with the faithful performance of these techniques augment the neurosurgeon’s armamentarium and confidence to intervene upon brainstem proximate and intraaxial pathology.

The definitive guide to performing vertebroplastykyphoplasty, and implant augmentation from national and international experts.

Vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) result from trauma or pathologic weakening of the bone and are associated with conditions such as osteoporosis or malignancy. Worldwide, VCFs impact one in three women and one in eight men aged 50 and older, with more than 8.9 million fractures incurred annually. Copublished by Thieme and the Society of Interventional Radiology, Vertebral Augmentation: The Comprehensive Guide to Vertebroplasty, Kyphoplasty, and Implant Augmentation provides a practical, clinical discussion of these minimally invasive spine interventions.

Written and edited by Douglas Beall along with associate editors Allan Brook, M. R. Chambers, Joshua Hirsch, Alexios Kelekis, Yong-Chul Kim, Scott Kreiner, and Kieran Murphy, this richly illustrated book presents a multidisciplinary and international perspective. It features contributions from renowned experts in interventional radiology, neurosurgery, pain medicine, and physiatry. This resource fills a gap in the literature, with extensive updates on a vast amount of new information and techniques that have been introduced during the past decade. Thirty-five chapters address treatment of spine fractures, starting with a history and introduction to vertebral augmentation, discussion of VCFs, patient assessments, physical exam findings, pain management, and much more.

Key Features

Procedural chapters cover vertebroplasty, sacroplasty, cervical and posterior arch augmentation, balloon kyphoplasty, and vertebral augmentation with implants and for challenging pathologies Special topics include radiation exposure and protection, post-procedure physical therapy, osteoporosis treatment, postural fatigue syndrome, the effect on morbidity and mortality, and cementoplasty outside the spine Treatment of complex cases are also discussed extensively, including chronic vertebral compression fractures, neoplastic vertebral compression fractures, instrumented spinal fusions, and severe benign and malignant fractures The final chapter features 16 subchapters from global masters of vertebral augmentation, with personal tips, tricks, and pearls they use in their own practices This is a must-have resource for interventional radiology, neurosurgery, interventional pain management, and orthopaedic surgery residents and fellows, as well as seasoned clinicians who wish to incorporate these procedures into practice.
