JAMES S HARROP
ISBN: 978935152496020151/e

Synopsis

This book will guide readers on the choice of operative therapy for various degenerative spinal conditions. Although there are numerous spinal texts, this book is one of only a few dedicated to improving the quality of life of patients with degenerative scoliosis. The book consists of three main sections. First, an overview of lumbar degenerative scoliosis anatomy and pathoetiology, imaging and radiographic techniques, the importance of spinal balance, conservative management, and the differences between de novo lumbar degenerative scoliosis and adult idiopathic scoliosis. The second portion gives an overview of the indications for treatment and surgical planning. The third and final section discusses the available surgical techniques with commentary on the experience of experts in the field. These last two sections are presented in a unique format and include: case presentation with images and figures, surgical principles, boxed areas with key concepts, and a conclusion that summarizes potential complications and tips to optimize management.

      Key Features

      The aging population and increased number of spinal deformities have created a rapidly expanding field of degenerative scoliosis.This book has been complied due to the numerous years of experience of thought leaders in this heterogeneous discipline. Experts in both Neurological and Orthopedic Surgery have been brought together to provide their insights into optimal treatment and patient outcomes. 

      The Adult Degenerative Scoliosis book is expected to serve as a manual to readers of several disciplines on the difficult topic of degenerative scoliosis. Its aim is to provide a concise, thorough and readily available manuscript on diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of coronal deformities.
