Book Description

August 13, 2010 1604062398 978-1604062397 1st edition

This is exactly the book one should have ready access to.-- American Journal of Neuroradiology

All providers who care for patients with spinal problems should consider using this book to help with decision making for their patients on an everyday basis.-- Journal of Neurosurgery

Drawing on the expertise of world-renowned orthopedic and neurological spine surgeons,Controversies in Spine Surgery: Best Evidence Recommendations compiles, summarizes, and synthesizes the most relevant scientific literature available in the field today.

Each succinct, problem-oriented chapter addresses a different controversial issue where there is a lack of consensus about the best possible course of action. The authors provide guidance and objective recommendations for each scenario based on the most relevant data found in the literature to give surgeons the background they need to make fully informed treatment decisions.

Features:

  • Concise outline format enables rapid reading for the busy spine surgeon
  • Invaluable synopses of highly practical evidence-based literature
  • Detailed coverage of commonly disputed issues, such as how to manage vertebral compression fractures, surgery for axial back pain, minimally invasive lumbar fusion, the use of prophylactic antibiotics in spine surgery, and much more
  • Grading of Best Evidence feature in which the authors rate the viability of the data presented
  • Numerous summary tables throughout the text emphasize the main conclusions of published studies
  • Pearls highlight important points in each chapter

This cutting-edge clinical reference will help every resident, fellow, and spine surgeon in orthopaedic surgery and neurosurgery streamline their medical decision making process and improve their patient care.

Format:Hardcover
This book is a clear and up-to date review of current "evidence based medicine" opinions on controversial issues in spine surgery. It's clear and gives you all necessary bibliographic references to enhance your comprehension on specific subjects: in this view it's more a guide than a real "surgical treaty", and I think this is in authors intention. Very useful for othopedic surgery and neurosurgery resident or young surgeon interested in spine surgery
