This Second Edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect recent advances in the field of percutaneous vertebroplasty. Obsolete sections have been replaced with cutting-edge material, such as an in-depth look at the latest bone cements and devices. Chapters outline spine anatomy, medical management, and patient selection. The text is enhanced by a wealth of illustrations. The addition of practical and challenging case studies furthers the focus of the previous edition by bridging the gap between theory and practice for spine interventionalists, radiologists, neuroradiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons.
New to the Second Edition:
- New data on alternate routes for therapy, sacroplasty, and treating tumors
- New treatment techniques
- Updated examination of biomechanics
- New material on complications
- Inclusion of vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty cases
- Expanded presentation of ACR and SIR care standards
- New figures and color images
Interventional radiologists, neuroradiologists, radiologists, orthopedists, neurosurgeons, residents
