Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) With K2M’s 3-D Printed Interbody—Surgical Technique and Review of Anatomy

Speaker: Sonia V. Eden, MD, FAANS
Borgess Brain and Spine Institute, Kalamazoo, Mich
Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize the pertinent anatomy and basic anatomic landmarks relevant for the surgical procedure.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the surgical technique.
  • Identify the nuances of the surgical instrumentation.
  • Outline surgical pearls to help the surgery become seamless
  • Review patient indications for procedure and gain a deeper understanding of how to identify which patients are optimal candidates for Minimally Invasive surgery.

Current Applications and Advances in Fluorescence-guided Surgery.

Speaker: Costas G. Hadjipanayis, MD, PhD, FAANS

Director of Neurosurgical Oncology and Chair, Department of Neurosurgery, Mt. Sinai Beth Israel

Director, Brain Tumor Nanotechnology Laboratory, Tisch Cancer Institute
Description: Participants will receive an overview on the concept of fluorescence-guided surgery (FGS) for the resection of brain and spinal cord tumors. Neurosurgeons will understand the current technologies available for FGS and the different tumor types that can undergo FGS. Safety, diagnostic accuracy, and Level 1 evidence in support of FGS will also be discussed.
