Details

Spinal surgery employs many high-risk procedures, including pedicle screw insertion, which involves insertion of screws in areas adjacent to the spinal cord, nerve roots, and vertebral arteries; and osteotomy, an especially dangerous procedure that requires cutting bones located very close to the spinal cord or aorta, used for congenital spinal deformities and other symptoms. To improve the safety and precision of such procedures, a frameless computer-aided stereotactic image-guidance system is used. This book presents and reviews information on computer-assisted spinal surgery. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
