Under their aegis, Association of Spine Surgeons of India has published three monographs with the objective to cover most latest literature on the common subjects on complications in spine surgery, ankylosing spondylitis and lumbar spinal stenosis. These monographs are published by Thieme Medical and Scientific Publishers Pvt. Ltd.


   Complications in Spinal Surgery Top


This monograph is about adverse events and complications during spine surgery and comprehensively covers the prevention and management of common complications. The complications covered are dural tear, intraoperative bleeding and vascular injury, approach-related complications following anterior cervical spine surgery, surgical site infection, pedicle screw-related complications, neurologic complications present or recurrent leg pain after lumbar spine surgery, proximal junctional kyphosis, and lumbar spine pseudoarthrosis.


   Ankylosing Spondylitis Top


The monograph covers definition of axial spondyloarthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, its epidemiology, medical management, and biomechanical aspect of spinal deformities. The surgical correction of spinal deformities has been discussed from preparative planning, perioperative management, and surgical techniques of thoracolumbar and cervical osteotomies. The Anderson's lesion and spinal fracture with AS have been discussed as separate subheadings.


   Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Top


The chapter one includes epidemiology pathoanatomy, pathogenesis, and classification to give a clear understanding of pathoanatomy. The chapter on sagittal spinopelvic parameters gives nice understanding of impact of the altered parameters in degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis. The clinical presentations, diagnosis, natural history, and conservative treatment are described as separate chapter. The decompression techniques, role of spinal fusion, and outcome of conventional surgery are extensively covered. Seven chapters detail the minimal invasive surgeries and their outcome. The last chapter presents various case scenarios with clinical presentation, investigation, rationale of treatment, and outcome.

All the three monographs have been written in a lucid language. They have a good number of clinical case examples with good quality radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging pictures. The justice has been done by authors on the topic allotted. These monographs will be useful for a trainee and practicing spine surgeon and a part of library of any institution.
