About this book

This richly illustrated and comprehensive book covers a broad range of normal and pathologic conditions of the vertebral column, from its embryology to its development, its pathology, its dynamism and its degeneration. The dynamic anatomy of the living subject is viewed using the latest technologies, opening new perspectives to elucidate the pathology of the spine and improve spinal surgery. The respective chapters review in depth all sections of the vertebral column and offer new insights, e.g. the 3D study of vertebral movements using the “EOS system,” which makes it possible to define an equilibrium of posture and its limits. New histological and chemical findings on the intervertebral disc, as well as detailed descriptions of the aponeuroses and fasciae, are also provided.

Bringing together the experience of several experts from the well-known French school, this book offers a valuable companion for skilled experts and postgraduate students in various fields: orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, physiotherapy, rheumatology, musculoskeletal therapy, rehabilitation, and kinesiology.

Since 1989, Jean Marc Vital has been an Intern and University Professor of orthopedic and traumatology surgery at the University of Medicine of Bordeaux, as well as Head of the Department of Spinal Diseases and Director of the Anatomy Laboratory at the Paul Broca faculty. Upon completing his residency in Bordeaux in 1980, he received the Gold Medal Award of Surgery. Moreover, he earned an MD in human biology in the field of anatomy. In 1981 he was appointed Instructor of Anatomy and Organogenesis as well as Intern in Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology. In the same year, he became Senior Registrar of the Department run by Prof. Jacques Senegas. He also earned the national specialized Diploma in Sports Medicine (CES).  

As a spine surgeon, Dr. Vital has a special interest in spinal deformities (with particular emphasis on sagittal balance) and in cervical spine surgery (cervical prostheses and myelopathy). He has been a member of several outstanding societies such as the French Medical College of Anatomy since 1989, and the European Cervical Spine Research Society since 2003. He also serves on the editorial boards of the European Spine Journal, The Spine, and The French Journal of Orthopedic and Traumatology Surgery.

Dr. Derek Thomas Cawley is a Spinal Fellow at Bordeaux University Hospital. Having completed his training as an orthopedic surgeon in the Republic of Ireland, he is the author of several publications on orthopedic and spinal research topics. He has received numerous international awards as an orthopedic trainee including an RCSI/Ethicon bursary, BOA/Zimmer Biomet travelling fellowship, SOFCOT/ARMO foreign graduate award and the Mark Paterson/EFORT travelling fellowship.
