Description

Comprehensive yet practical, this book is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on both major and minor conditions affecting the pediatric cervical spine. Written by eminent orthopedic and spinal surgeons, it provides a systematic approach based on traditional categories: anatomy, pathology, imaging, and both surgical and non-surgical treatment strategies. Utilizing the most up-to-date evidence, the subject is approached in three main sections.

The basic science of the pediatric cervical spine – anatomy, biomechanics, imaging and diagnostic techniques – is covered in part I. The clinical aspects of pediatric cervical spine disorders are discussed in part II, including trauma, inflammatory conditions, infections, tumors, congenital anomalies and others. The medical and surgical treatment of these disorders comprises part III, presenting conservative techniques such as immobilization and surgical techniques such as arthrodesis. Complications and other related pediatric cervical conditions are also covered in this last section.

Written by an international panel of experts and skillfully edited by leaders in the field, The Management of Children’s Cervical Spine Disorders is a unique and definitive resource for pediatric orthopedic spine surgeons, neurologists and all medical professionals treating these delicate conditions.
