Book description

The increased complexity of spinal surgical procedures in recent years has required more sophisticated anesthetic management of patients undergoing these procedures. Spine surgery anesthesia is now recognized as a distinct sub-specialty, increasingly undertaken by general anesthesiologists as well as neuroanesthesiologists. Anesthesia for Spine Surgery describes the anesthetic management and surgical procedures at every vertebral level in both adult and pediatric patients. The most important related considerations are covered, including: • Postoperative pain management• One lung ventilation during anterior thoracic spine surgery• Intraoperative neuromonitoring• Fluid management Additional chapters review the radiological features of normal and abnormal spines, common complications of spine surgery and ASA closed claims relating to spine surgery anesthesia. Written by highly experienced neuroanesthesiologists and spine surgeons, Anesthesia for Spine Surgery is essential reading for trainee and practising anesthesiologists, neuroanesthesiologists and spine surgeons.


'Anesthesia for Spine Surgery is an excellent first edition textbook covering the evolving subspecialty of anesthesia for spine surgery.'

'The editor, Dr Farag, has done an awesome job in unifying multiple-authored chapters into a book with uniformly high-quality text and visuals … Anesthesia for Spine Surgery provides the reader with a consistency in quality that is rarely found in a multi-authored text … A wonderfully recurrent theme throughout the entire book is its terse, consistent presentation. This includes clear and concise text, excellent diagrams, and beautifully/clearly reproduced radiologic scans … [This book] should be read by every anesthesiologist who participates in an active spine surgical practice. It is educational, informative, and enjoyable to read … Buy this book for its looks, but expect much more.'
