Summary Annotation The papers in this volume summarize information on the most recent and effective techniques for treating difficult functional problems and painful situations using minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques. The book presents spinal endoscopy both for diagnostic and treatment purposes, as well as microsurgical operations for spinal problems, intradiscal techniques for the treatment of disc degenerative pathology, and dynamic stabilization techniques. This is accompanied by an up-to-date review of the physiopathology of the diseases. New trends in peripheral nerve surgery are presented. The problem of traumatic nerve lesions in different anatomical districts is also analyzed, with special attention to the theme of thoracic outlet syndrome. The posttraumatic aspects of this disease are discussed both with respect to its causative mechanisms, and its medicolegal aspects.
