Handbook of Minimally Invasive and Percutaneous Spine Surgery, edited by Drs. Wang, Anderson, Ludwig, and Mummaneni, is destined to become a favorite with all students of spine surgery, whether residents in training or experienced practitioners. Small enough to fit in a lab coat pocket, this exceptional manual is just the resource you need. It will prove invaluable as a quick reference in daily practice or simply as a refresher when confronting a difficult clinical problem. This fully illustrated fundamental guide focuses on procedures and techniques that require minimal exposure. Presented in a concise and readable format, this text delivers the basics for those new to minimally invasive surgery as well as pointers and tips for more advanced surgeons. It is destined to become a favorite with all students of spine surgery. Composed of 11 chapters, this practical manual begins with the true foundation of minimally invasive surgery--imaging. Safe and effective surgery performed through minimal exposures demands a thorough mind's-eye understanding of anatomy without visualization. Moreover, it requires a keen ability to mentally translate two-dimensional imaging into three-dimensional anatomy. Next, the most common techniques of cannulation are covered in a logical step-by-step fashion, just as it is taught in the operating room. Minimally invasive options for pedicle screw placement are completed with a chapter describing the mini-open technique. The second half of this book focuses on fusion and pedicle screw insertion. Finally, this handbook does not ignore the endpoint of all these techniques--achieving successful fusion. Techniques to enhance the success of this outcome are discussed in Chapter 9, whereas potential complications and methods to avoid them are outlined in Chapter 8. Each chapter concludes with "Surgical Pearls and Pitfalls," which provide summaries of the salient points discussed in the chapter. Unique to this text are highlighted boxes outlining "Bailouts/Alternative Strategies" for completing the task when classic techniques fail. Furthermore, each chapter is well illustrated, with step-by-step images that clearly demonstrate the points being made. Written by world-recognized minimally invasive spine surgeons, this handbook provides essential coverage of key topics.

A patient-focused practical handbook for rapid acquisition of broad surgical knowledge The Surgical Handbook by Michael Karsy and esteemed colleagues addresses training gaps by exposing early trainees, medical students, residents, advanced practice providers, and non-specialists to a diverse array of surgical subspecialty diseases and acute management topics. The impressive breadth of content presented in this resource reflects multidisciplinary contributions. The text covers far more than existing medical handbooks, while featuring concise distillation of key points conducive to learning. The book is organized by 16 sections starting with general perioperative and operative management of topics that apply to all surgeons, such as critical care, trauma, and general surgery. Subsequent chapters encompass a full spectrum of surgical specialties—from vascular and cardiothoracic—to neurosurgery and orthopaedics, as well as handy evidence-based reference guides. The focused collection of topics within each section serves as a useful resource for learning about management of specific diseases and also a starting point for self-directed learning. Key Highlights Bullet points, illustrations, diagrams, and figures enhance rapid acquisition of knowledge Tables on acute diagnosis and management of common inpatient scenarios such as electrolyte and acid/base disturbances provide easy-to-use tools Clinical references include practice pearls on trauma management, key medications for common inpatient conditions, acute patient events (e.g. cardiac and stroke), anesthesia and intubation medications, and preoperative and post-anesthesia issues This backpack companion will benefit medical students and junior surgical residents during rotations and clerkships and help early-career clinicians gain insights into timely disease recognition, initial management, surgical risks, and when to make referrals.
