New York/Stuttgart - Thieme announced today the release of "Surgery of the Pediatric Spine," a single-volume reference for managing pediatric spinal disorders and diseases. Written by neurosurgical and orthopaedic surgeons specializing in pediatric spinal disorders, this standard setting book is a comprehensive multi-disciplinary reference tool for surgical management of the most frequently encountered spinal problems of the pediatric patient.

Chapters, grouped in easy-to-reference sections, are organized by problem type ranging from congenital anomalies and developmental disorders to trauma and deformities. Both orthopaedic and neurosurgical view points are discussed throughout the book. An overview of both developmental and clinical aspects are provided, presenting essential information on surgical anatomy, biomechanics, neuroimaging, preoperative evaluation, anesthesia, and neurophysiological monitoring.

"Surgery of the Pediatric Spine" also focuses on techniques for the treatment of spinal deformity. One chapter, devoted to the rehabilitation of children with spinal cord injuries, covers the principles and key concepts in treatment as well as possible secondary complications and challenges that are unique to pediatric patients.

Additional highlights include clinical insights from prominent experts in the fields of neurosurgery, pediatric neurosurgery, and orthopaedics. More than 1,000 illustrations and numerous cases illustrate management principles and treatment outcomes.

Filled with descriptions of the most current diagnostic, surgical as well as nonsurgical treatments, clinicians treating pediatric populations with spinal disorders and disease will find this to be a must-have addition to their personal reference library.

"Differential Diagnosis in Conventional Radiology" is an asset to radiologists and specialists seeking to improve their skills in diagnostic imaging and residents preparing for examinations.
