Special Issue "Advances in Paediatric Spine Surgery"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 May 2024 | Viewed by 1524
Interests: paediatric orthopedic surgery; scoliosis; spine surgery
The constantly evolving field of pediatric spine surgery has seen tremendous advancements in recent years. Improvements in surgical techniques, implants, and peri-operative pathways have greatly benefited our patients and their families. Newer technologies have improved patients’ safety and the reproducibility of our results. Nevertheless, there are still many questions waiting to be answered and room for improvements.
Modern technologies, including vertebral body tethering (VBT), patient-specific rods, self-growing rods, minimally invasive, robot-assisted, and surgical navigation, are active areas of investigation. Similarly, enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols as well as newer strategies for peri-operative analgesia are promising tools to hasten recovery after surgery.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together prominent scholars in the field of pediatric spine surgery and present the most advanced research in the field. This Special Issue will focus on all aspects of pediatric spine surgery, including scoliosis, hyperkyphosis, congenital deformities, spondylolisthesis, with a special interest in new technologies, new surgical techniques, and peri-operative management protocols.
