About the book:
Neuro Spinal Surgery Operative Techniques: Lateral Mass Fixation in Sub-axial Cervical Spine is a concise, illustrated resource for practising spine surgeons, which provides a step by step guide to the successful insertion of a lateral mass screw. The book is split into two sections; the first covers the basic concepts of lateral mass (the bulky, solid parts of the first vertebra of the spine which support the weight of the head), including surgical anatomy, landmarks, neurovascular structures and standard screw trajectories. The second section covers surgical techniques including patient positioning, drilling, and surgical instruments. The final chapter is a collection of six cases with surgical procedures accompanied by intraoperative photographs and drawings. Neuro Spinal Surgery Operative Techniques: Lateral Mass Fixation in Sub-axial Cervical Spine is enhanced by over 100 full colour images and illustrations, making this book a highly useful reference tool for spine surgeons.
