This quantity of Advances and Technical criteria in Neurosurgery is dedicated totally to the backbone. Like different volumes within the sequence, it offers vital fresh development within the box and gives distinctive descriptions of ordinary techniques to help younger neurosurgeons. one of the advances thought of are methods to spinal navigation, together with intraoperative imaging established navigation, and ideas of spinal robotics. the price of sagittal stability as a parameter for the neurosurgeon is tested, and a unique surgical method of longitudinal pathologies in the spinal canal is gifted. advancements in surgical procedure for kyphosis also are mentioned, with a spotlight on pedicle subtraction osteotomy. The technical criteria part seriously experiences the newest proof concerning cervical disc arthroplasty and pedicle-based non-fusion stabilization units. The ebook concludes through discussing the remedy of craniovertebral junction instability due to juvenile persistent arthritis.

Banczerowski et al. Fig. 3 Illustration of the multilevel split and distracted spinous processes A multilevel splitting of spinous process and lamina has subsequently been applied to older age groups at our institutes in Hungary and Israel with similar benefits. The distracting laminotomy technique (Figs. 3 and 4) was then developed to explore intramedullary spinal pathologies with the aim of preservation of the functional unity of the main posterior structures.
33 Sagittal Balance, a Useful Tool for Neurosurgeons? SS SS PT PT Fig. 4 Pelvis back tilt mechanism. Increase of pelvis tilt results in posterior placement of sacrum related to the coxo-femoral heads thus increasing the sacro-femoral distance (red lines) Compensatory Mechanisms Recent studies [50, 54, 59, 60] have shown that it is important to assess the sagittal balance before planning surgery for lumbar degenerative pathologies. It is important to recognize the different compensatory mechanisms in order not to underestimate the surgical correction needed.
