Neurosurgical Focus Volume 49: Issue 2 (August 2020)
Topic: Lumbar Spinal Osteoporosis
A joint effort of the Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group and the Lumbar Spine Research Society, the August issue of Neurosurgical Focus looks at lumbar spinal osteoporosis.
Articles in this issue address the challenges encountered when elective lumbar spine surgery is performed in patients with osteoporosis. Identification of poor bone quality using quantitative computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging as well as dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, preoperative medical treatments to optimize bone quality, timing of surgery, and adjustments to surgical procedures to manage osteoporosis are discussed.
All articles in Neurosurgical Focus are freely available.
