Cervical Myelopathy

by Peter G Passias

The main focus of this book is on “Cervical Myelopathy”. The book “Cervical Myelopathy” remains a challenging clinical entity, both in terms of diagnosis and management. A recurrent theme throughout this book is the importance of understanding and restoring sagittal alignment. The importance of sagittal alignment in terms of achieving successful patient outcomes in patients with cervical myelopathy has enjoyed growing appreciation in the literature. This textbook seeks to reflect this trend and provide instructions as to how to incorporate diagnostic factors, such as alignment in designing treatment for this complex pathology. The book “Cervical Myelopathy” is appropriate for surgeons in training seeking to understand how to diagnose and treat cervical myelopathy, as well as for experienced clinicians who seek a thorough review of the pertinent etiologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of cervical myelopathy. The information given in the book is elaborative yet it is concise and to the point. This book is divided into six sections which comprise total 24 chapters. The first section deals with the introduction of cervical myelopathy. Section second covers the outcomes of cervical myelopathy. Section third discusses the distinct diagnostic etiologies of cervical myelopathy. Section fourth covers the surgical management of cervical myelopathy. Section fifth provides the cervical myelopathy in the setting of cervical deformities. Finally, section sixth describes the cervical myelopathy in the setting of spine tumors.
