This volume presents advanced procedures for spinal fusion, or arthrodesis. Chapter 1, “Master Techniques for Minimally Invasive Surgery,” introduces surgery employing percutaneous pedicle screws (PPS) and cortical bone trajectory (CBT), techniques for safely conducting extreme lateral interbody fusion (XLIF) and oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF), and vertebroplasty. Included are useful tips and precautions on the low-invasive spinal procedures that have seen rapid advances and rising demand in recent years. Chapter 2, “Master Techniques for Highly Invasive Surgery,” discusses osteotomy procedures such as pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO), pelvic anchoring, and corrective procedures for scoliosis. Step-by-step write-ups of surgical procedures are supplemented with illustrations. Sidebars with trouble-shooting and other tips from frontline physicians complete the easy-to-follow format.
