Interventional procedures of the spine include a wide array of techniques, which affect the intervertebral disc, the vertebral body, the posterior elements, as well as the relationship of those with the neural structures.
These techniques address various pathologies, including and not limited to vertebral fractures (osteoporotic, traumatic and malignant), disc herniation, spinal stenosis, discoradicular conflict, facet and sacroiliac joint pain. They interest a wide variety of doctors (spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, anaesthesiologists, interventional radiologists etc).
The purpose of such a special issue is to show the presence of therapies other than conservative treatment or surgery, which can be performed under imaging guidance with minimal hospital stay. These techniques can serve as attractive alternatives to surgical options, resulting in pain reduction and mobility improvement, with a clear effect on quality of life.
We remain at your disposal for additional questions.
