Download Lateral Access Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery by Michael Y. Wang, Andrew A. Sama, Juan S. Uribe PDF

By Michael Y. Wang, Andrew A. Sama, Juan S. Uribe

This well-illustrated textbook is the 1st finished and authoritative resource of knowledge on minimally invasive lateral entry backbone surgical procedure. It covers all facets of the topic, together with sufferer choice, strategy and tracking recommendations, tender tissue administration, program in a number of pathologies, technical nuances, and the prevention and administration of problems. furthermore, present controversies within the box are mentioned and the biomechanics of lateral spinal reconstruction, the physiologic merits, and value implications are defined. As use of the lateral procedure in spinal surgical procedure has turn into extra renowned, so its variety and complexity have elevated. however, courses committed fullyyt to the process are missing, and Lateral entry Minimally Invasive backbone Surgery is designed to fill this vacuum. Written via the world’s specialists at the subject, it is going to be a good source for either starting and skilled surgeons.

Of those studies examining costs, the MIS lateral approach has been shown to achieve significant cost savings of around $2,500 in the perioperative period and $10,000–20,000 after 2 years (about 10 % savings for both time periods). However, the costeffectiveness of the MIS lateral approach is unknown. Future studies are necessary to further evaluate the cost-effectiveness of MIS lateral approaches to the spine. References 1.

Alvin et al. 30 fusion procedures, studies specially evaluating cost-effectiveness, rather than costs alone, must be performed. Investigators wishing to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis should ensure that their analysis is both transparent and comparable to other studies. Based on the Panel on CostEffectiveness in Health and Medicine, a societal perspective (inclusion of indirect costs) and explicit definition of direct costs should be used in future cost-effectiveness studies. In addition, given the importance of long-term follow-up in spine care, studies should also try to obtain long-term cost data.
