Module 9: Complications and Revisions

About this module

This Module is a unique teaching tool of 23 lectures from experienced surgeons. It unifies complications from approaches to the spine on the one hand, and from the different pathologies on the other - disc herniation, decompression surgery, deformity surgery, trauma surgery and surgery in osteoporosis.

Furthermore, typical complications like dural leak, pseudarthrosis, wound infections, implant complications, as well as neurological deficit, spinal cord damage, and complications arising from positioning the patient are dealt with in depth.

Finally, there is a pair of lectures suggesting the algorithm of imaging in spinal complications.
