Practice Guidelines for Spinal Diagnostic and Treatment Procedures (Second Edition)

Developed under the guidance of the Spine Intervention Society's Standards Division and edited by Professor Nikolai Bogduk, internationally renowned and respected expert in clinical anatomy and back pain, this comprehensive compendium on spinal interventions is a must read for anyone performing interventional spine procedures. This text provides a summary of the current state of the evidence supporting each procedure, along with complete and detailed descriptions of the techniques used.

The book is divided into five sections:

  • Precepts: includes chapters on sedation, intravenous lines, records, anticoagulants, and principles of radiofrequency neurotomy
  • Cervical Procedures
  • Thoracic Procedures
  • Lumbar Procedures
  • Sacral Procedures

The four procedure sections cover access and applications of cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral procedures.

Each chapter contains dozens of high quality radiographic images depicting step-by-step needle placement technique and demonstrating injectate flow patterns.

From defining the procedures and discussing indications to addressing needle placement and outcomes assessment, the Practice Guidelines for Spinal Diagnostic and Treatment Procedures, Second Edition is the definitive text on interventional spine procedures.
