This book provides a unique tool for approaching cranio-vertebral junction (CVJ) surgery. Following a brief introduction to the relevant anatomy and biomechanics of CVJ, it explores the field of cranio-vertebral junction lesions and their management. Furthermore, individual chapters cover endovascular surgery, endoscopic skull base techniques, navigation and robotics, ensuring that surgeons stay up-to-date. A chapter addressing the consequences of CVJ surgery with regard to sagittal balance is of particular importance. The book is structured according both to the type of lesion involving the CVJ (tumor, trauma), and to the type of surgical approach (anterior, posterior). Further, it reflects innovative treatment modalities that have improved patient safety and efficacy rates for surgery involving the CVJ, and covers both open and minimally invasive surgical methods, enabling surgeons to hone their skills in both areas.

Features
• Presents an entire spectrum of pathologies involving the cranio-cervical junction
• Focuses on principles of surgical techniques, both open and minimally invasive
• Provides numerous case illustrations
• Discusses the management of major complications
