About this book

As image-guided spine interventions have increasingly become a primary strategy for managing back pain, the tools and capabilities available to practitioners have grown significantly. This fully revised edition of Image-Guided Spine Interventions presents the latest procedures available to physicians who perform minimally invasive spine interventions. The comprehensive text covers the fundamentals—such as spine anatomy, procedural materials, and pharmacological requirements—along with chapters devoted to key topics such as discography, percutaneous descectomy, vertebroplasty and balloon kyphoplasty, epidural steroid injections, and autonomic nerve blocks. Additionally, three new chapters are included in the Second Edition, covering pulsed radiofrequency procedures, sacroplasty, and spinal cord stimulation. Each technique is presented in a straightforward manner that allows the reader to effectively evaluate and implement new procedures. The text is further enhanced by nearly 200 images and illustrations.

Edited by Dr. John Mathis, a former president of the American Society of Spine Radiology, and Dr. Stanley Golovac, who both have clinical practices devoted solely to spine procedures and pain management, the book will be useful to all physicians dealing with back pain, including radiologists, pain anesthesiologists, spine neurosurgeons, and orthopedists. Physicians will once again find that Image-Guided Spine Interventions, 2nd Edition, is the pivotal authority on image-guided techniques for the spine.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Dr John A Mathis, who is past-president of the American Society of Spine Radiology and a leading authority on vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, has edited review format contributions from selected (almost exclusively) North American authors. Concise overviews are provided of all these topics. This volume is targeted at physicians interested in utilising the various percutaneous techniques available in managing back pain. … There are more than 300 illustrations, providing examples of technique and pitfalls. … This book provides an excellent overview for those already involved in image-guided spinal work or those in other interventional fields hoping to establish a service and is recommended." (Dr. A Saifuddin, Dr. R Hughes, RAD Magazine, September, 2005)
