The new edition of this highly illustrated volume on small animal spinal disorders contains much more text than the previous edition, and has been re-organised into an illustrated text. All possible spinal disorders are covered - from trauma and disc disease to neoplasia and much more. Introductory chapters on relevant functional anatomy and clinical examination are followed by chapters on diagnosis, differential diagnosis and pre-operative assessment (including diagnostic aids and instrumentation). Each spinal disorder is then reviewed, giving operative techniques where necessary to enhance the detailed text. A discussion of post-operative management, possible complications and outcome is also included.
Encompassing all aspects of spinal disorders, from the presenting features of each spinal disorder to the outcomes after surgery or other treatment, and packed full of colour and black-and-white illustrations, Small Animal Spinal Disorders will give you all the information you need to diagnose and treat these complicated disorders.
