New York/Stuttgart –This sixth volume in the AOSpine Masters Series, recently published by Thieme, provides expert guidance on making an accurate diagnosis and classification of injuries to the thoracolumbar area of the spine. Chapters include: Radiographic Assessment of Thoracolumbar Fractures, Posterior and Anterior MIS in TL Fractures, and Thoracolumbar Fracture Fixation in the Osteoporotic Patient.
The AOSpine Masters Series, a copublication of Thieme and AOSpine, a Clinical Division of the AO Foundation, addresses current clinical issues whereby international masters of spine share their expertise and recommendations on a particular topic. The goal of the series is to contribute to an evolving, dynamic model of an evidence-based medicine approach to spine care.
All spine surgeons and orthopaedic surgeons, along with residents and fellows in these areas, will find this book to be an excellent reference that they will consult often in their treatment of patients with thoracolumbar spine injuries.
