Clubfoot is a deformity in which an infants foot is turned inward so that the bottom of the foot faces sideways or even upward. Approximately one infant in every 1,000 live births will have clubfoot, making it one of the more common congenital (present at birth) foot deformities. If a childs clubfoot is not treated, the foot will remain deformed, and he or she will not be able to walk normally.

As a result of recent advances in surgical techniques and implant technology it is now possible to perform limb reconstruction in patients with a range of congenital, posttraumatic, and postinfection pathologies. This book is a clear, practical guide to the state-of-the-art surgical procedures employed in limb reconstruction for diverse conditions. It includes precise descriptions of the techniques themselves, accompanied by numerous helpful drawings and photographs. Pearls and pitfalls are highlighted, and thorough advice is also provided on indications, preoperative planning, and postoperative follow-up. The editors have carefully selected the contributors based on their expertise, and many of the authors were themselves responsible for developing the techniques that they describe.

Spinal osteotomy techniques have been dramatically applied as a standard method for severe and rigid spinal deformity. Although clinical results indicate that patients who undergo osteotomy procedures typically experience well deformity correction and ameliorate the clinical appearance, aggressive peri-operative risks and follow-up complications are not rare. More meticulous and standard indication selection, osteotomy plan design and complication prevention strategy and outcome evaluation are critically needed for surgeon majored in spine deformity. The book Spinal Osteotomy is divided into sections that focus on principles of spinal osteotomy, technical and case illustration and outcomes and complications as well as computer navigation and other latest techniques. Each section is heavily illustrated and clearly written for ease of understanding. Orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeon residents and fellows who want to focus on spinal deformity correction will find this instructive and invaluable.

This well-illustrated textbook is the first comprehensive and authoritative source of information on minimally invasive lateral access spine surgery. It covers all aspects of the subject, including patient selection, approach and monitoring techniques, soft tissue management, application in a variety of pathologies, technical nuances, and the prevention and management of complications. In addition, current controversies in the field are discussed and the biomechanics of lateral spinal reconstruction, the physiologic benefits, and cost implications are explained. As use of the lateral approach in spinal surgery has become more popular, so its diversity and complexity have increased. Nevertheless, publications devoted entirely to the technique are lacking, and Lateral Access Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery is designed to fill this vacuum. Written by the worlds experts on the topic, it will be an excellent resource for both beginning and experienced surgeons. Michael Y.
