Provides a comprehensive glossary of virtually all spinal systems available today, summarized in 1,258 pages. The book represents the current encyclopedia of spinal instrumentation. A unique quality of this book is its combination of thoroughness and brevity, making it well suited for a rapid and to-the-point review of each topic, with illustrative images. ..The chapters are similarly organized in a well-flowing text that is divided into highlights, indications, descriptions of the system, operative techniques, as well as complications avoidance, followed by a brief discussion. The chapters include clear diagrammatic presentations of the system components and their step-by-step assembly. The images are large enough for easy viewing of the necessary details (often one-quarter page) and are accompanied by a brief but complete legend. [The book] is a great investment for $299 and a comprehensive text that updates any spine surgery library on contemporary techniques in spinal instrumentation.--Journal of Neurosurgery
