Neuro Spinal Surgery Operative Techniques - Anterior Cervical Discectomy and
Fusion is the latest book in the Neuro Spinal Surgery Operative Techniques series.
This book covers Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) in eight concise
chapters. This surgical procedure involves decompressing the spinal cord and
nerve roots in the neck.
The first chapter covers the basic anatomy and approaches to ACDF, with illustrated guidance on microdiscectomy and bone grafting. Further chapters cover decompression of the nerve root and cord, interbody grafting technique, corpectomy and fusion, with the most current information on each procedure. The important technique of ‘sinking’ the graft in the disc space to prevent graft migration is covered in detail.
The final chapter provides information on instruments used in ACDF procedures.
Neuro Spinal Surgery Operative Techniques - Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion is enhanced by nearly 200 full colour images, making this an ideal quick reference guide for spine surgeons.
