Clinical Anatomy of the Ligaments of the Craniocervical Junction

Editor(s): R. Shane Tubbs, Joe Iwanaga, Marios Loukas, Rod J. Oskouian

Book Description

The specialized ligaments that connect the head to the spine have never before had a book dedicated to their anatomy and clinical relevance. Therefore, this book is unique and fills in a gap in the literature. Audiences with a strong interest in such a topic include radiologists, spine surgeons, anatomists, rehabilitation physicians and therapists. Additionally, trainees including students, residents and fellows in disciplines treating patients with diseases or trauma to the craniocervical (connection between the head and neck) junction will have a strong interest in the book. As the fine surgical anatomy involved in spine surgery has progressed greatly in recent year, knowledge of all detailed anatomical structures relevant to this field is important. Therefore, this book will satisfy the demand for a more detailed knowledge regarding this region of the body and will be welcomed and timely for all who are interested in the human spine.
