Severe Spondylolisthesis: Pathology - Diagnosis - Therapy

Springer Science & Business Media
Free sample

Only dysplastic (congenital) spondylolisthesis can lead to the complete picture of spondyloptosis. Its therapies are still con troversially discussed today. The therapeutic palette ranges from therapeutic nihilism to fusion in situ, to complete reduc tion of the lumbo-sacral junction. The goal of the symposium, which is presented in this book, was to demonstrate the anatomical and biomechanical funda mental principles which are significant for the selection of the appropriate therapy. With regard to the choice of therapeutic options, no unanimous opinion could be achieved. However, it clearly came to fruition that therapeutic nihilism is not indicated. It was also clearly pointed out that the fusion in situ cannot be considered as the therapy method of choice as progression of the slipping process can occur together with considerable neurological complications despite a long posterior fusion. A particular matter of concern of this symposium was to find out to what extent the local deformity influences the global sagittal profile which is of crucial signifi cance with regard to the biomechanical aspect of the lurnbo-sa cral hinge. This book is meant to be a guide to the various therapeutic concepts through which it has clearly emerged that cases of progressive isthmic-dysplastic spondylodesis should be opera tively treated as early as possible. Only then is it possible to re store the lumbo-sacral hinge and above all the position of the sacrum in an ideal way.

We dedicate this Neurosurgery: Notes for the Graduate Students to all the residents and young neurosurgeons. Some did read the books but could not grasp the important concepts or facts. We have designed this e-book (electronic book) in note format to provide a comprehensive, yet easy-to-read summary of the essential topics in neurosurgery covering clinical localization, basic neurosciences and neurosurgery itself. The authors want to make this e-book as an additional knowledge to the readers. The purpose is to highlight the important points in neurosurgery. Besides, the real truth in some current neurosurgical practices are not clear, therefore, it is only a guide in note format to make readers quickly grasp the important or arguable points. Some notes mentioned in this e-book are indeed debateable and they may evolve over time. Pertaining to aforementioned notes, the content of this e-book is largely gained from standard protocols or widely accepted practices, our personal experience, notes done during our neurosurgical training locally and overseas, notes taken during international conferences, notes obtained from our personal discussion with the seniors in neurosurgery from all over the world and notes made from current journals in neurosurgery. In summary, it is an electronic neurosurgical note-book with important and debateable knowledge that we would like to emphasize and share with neurosurgical trainees or any graduate students. It is not meant to replace other commonly-referred neurosurgical textbooks. Therefore, trainees and students should read this e-book as an additional-knowledge which could be subjected to further discussion.

 

We would like thank our beloved wives and our family members for being supportive and understanding; our teachers for guiding us and our trainees for motivating us to write this e-book. Finally, we would like to state some interesting quotes from others:

 

1.      “The World is a book, and those who do not travel, only read a page” (Saint Augustine, 354-430).

2.       “The more you know, the more you see” and “The brain actually is not like a single organ. It's like a country, there are many organs (cities) in it: There are a vascular organ, an endocrine organ, an immunological organ and many more; In real fact, all are in the brain” (Professor Dr. M. Gazi Yasargil, father of modern neurosurgery).

3.      “You need fitness in all aspects: brain, mind, spirit and body to explore optimally the beauty of the brain and nervous system” (Zamzuri Idris, 2016).

An outstanding backpack reference for day-to-day neurosurgical practice

Now in an updated eighth edition, the Handbook of Neurosurgery has enjoyed legendary status on the bookshelf of every neurosurgery department for over a quarter of a century. Renowned for its scope and accessibility, the portable, single-volume guide is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the care of patients with disorders of the central nervous system – neurosurgical residents, nurses, neurologists, and allied healthcare practitioners.

This classic handbook covers the full depth and breadth of the complex field of neurosurgery – including inherited and acquired neurological disorders, developmental anomalies, and more esoteric topics such as toxins that impact the central nervous system. The text also covers conditions treated primarily by neurologists that may come to the attention of a neurosurgical care provider such as Parkinsonism, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron diseases, and dementia. The latest information is provided on anatomy and physiology, differential diagnosis, and current principles of nonsurgical and surgical management covering the full age continuum – from pediatric to geriatric conditions.

Key Features:

Expanded four-color graphics and illustrations Packed with more than 1,600 pages of practical information, including thousands of literature citations, handy cross-references, and a comprehensive index Fundamentals of neurocritical care, with a comprehensive overview of conditions – from SAH to head and spine trauma – and complications such as rebleeding, vasospasm, cerebral salt wasting, and brain death

Comprehensive and conveniently compact, this is a must-have daily reference, a perfect study companion for board exams, as well as ideal for maintenance of certification preparation. It is certain to be a treasured tome for legions of new neurosurgery residents and an essential tool for anyone working in the clinical neurosciences.
