Corrective Osteotomies for Rigid Spinal Deformities (Original PDF from Publisher)


By Leon Kaplan, Lawrence G Lenke

The ultimate guide and surgical manual for managing patients with rigid spinal deformities

Despite attempts to detect and treat spine deformities early in younger and older populations, spine deformity surgeons encounter a wide array of complex spine pathologies in patients across the age and pathology continuum. Corrective Osteotomies for Rigid Spinal Deformities, edited by world-renowned spinal deformity specialists Leon Kaplan and Lawrence G. Lenke, features contributions from an impressive group of global experts. The superbly written compendium highlights inherent challenges of managing rigid spinal deformities and provides a wide array of safe and optimal treatment solutions.

Thirty-four chapters encompass surgical and nonsurgical management strategies for congenital, neuromuscular, syndrome-associated, and infection- and neoplasm-related rigid spinal deformities. Special topics include secondary correction, pitfalls and difficulties, revision surgeries, and surgical and trauma-related neurological complications. New technologies are covered, including computer-assisted robotic surgery, evaluation and treatment of spinal tuberculosis in adults and children, and biological aspects that enhance spinal fusion. Throughout the text, the authors share firsthand pearls gained over many decades of delivering surgical care.
