Introduction

This video atlas covers a broad range of spinal surgical procedures. The volume includes a collection of high quality 3-to-8 minute videos of some of the most critical spine operations performed by internationally renowned expert surgeons.

Key features of the book contents include:

  • - Downloadable high quality video content with subtitles suitable for viewing on any display (A brief preview of the book content can be viewed here).
  • - Detailed descriptions of surgical indications, preoperative planning, patient positioning, surgical technique, complications, postoperative care and outcomes for each procedure
  • - Full color images and illustrations highlighting different key stages of each surgical technique

The video format allows skill development of its intended audience by conveying temporal and spatial details which often go unnoticed in photograph format. This volume will be of immense interest to both the novice and the experienced spinal surgeon as they can benefit from the visual guides presented in the book. It also serves as an ideal teaching tool for spine surgery units in medical schools.

Foreword

The Video Atlas of Spine Surgical Techniques edited by Federico Landriel and Eduardo Vecchi is certainly a strikingly original contribution to surgical education.

Continuing education in medicine or surgery is mandatory and it's also a requirement of the Society, Courses, Congresses, Symposiums and many other forms of education are carried on with this purpose nowadays.

One possible solution for the present and the future are the new Technologies of Information and Communication (TIC's) to “e-Learning” and the goal is to achieve a comprehensive vision of the different techniques as well as the necessary training for a proper surgical practice.

Indeed these young colleagues, who I appreciate and admire, are definitely the right people to lead a laborious task as the publication of this essential atlas. With the best people worldwide they have given birth to an original work, which undoubtedly represents a milestone showing the most modern surgical techniques in spine surgery. It is a work primarily dedicated to the education of our young colleagues but also to those who want to be updated on all the techniques related to surgical pathology of the spine. I'm sure that this original e-atlas will have the best welcome within the neurosurgical community because it fills a gap in the methodology of Neurosurgical Education globally.
