Explore this special issue which focuses on proceedings from the First Annual Lumbar Total Disc Replacement Summit that was held on October 25, 2016 in Boston, MA. This five-article supplement focuses on the Summit, which brought together seventeen thought-leaders in the spine surgery community. These experts employed a modified-Delphi method to determine where consensus existed pertaining to the utilization of lumbar total disc replacement as a standard of care for a subpopulation of patients suffering from degenerative disc disease. The funding for this supplement was provided by Aesculap Implant Systems, LLC. Published December 15, 2017

Minimally Invasive Techniques of Spine Surgery\nGuest Editor: Frank M. Phillips, MD\n\nIn 2010, approximately one of six instrumented spine procedures in the United States was performed with a minimally invasive exposure. In 2016, that number is nearing one in three, with estimates that more than half of all spine procedures will be performed with minimally invasive techniques by 2020. In short, twice as much MIS surgery is being performed today compared to five and a half years ago. With the increasing adoption of MIS techniques, there has been a concomitant increase in the volume and quality of evidence available to guide evidence- and experience-based decision making.\n\nAs with nearly all other surgical specialties, minimally invasive approaches have incrementally replaced open exposures and this similar progression in spine surgery has become undeniable. The cumulative and consistent evidence in this field confirms we are near or at the tipping point of MIS procedures to be increasingly, and at some point solely, used in responsible applications with appropriate techniques in properly selected patients at the most efficient surgical venues.Publication support provided by NuVasive, Inc.\nwww.nuvasive.comPublished April 2016

Read the recent research from the Second Annual Musculoskeletal Education and Research Center Symposium, held last August. The Symposium hosted several keynote speakers, including Dr. Hans-Joachim Wilke and Professor Wolfgang Rauschning. Dr. Wilke emphasized the importance of clinicians and basic scientists working together to develop new technologies. Dr. Rauschning utilized his novel cryotome technique and photographic imagery to display relevant surgical anatomy. Several biomechanical engineering scholars, including Dr.Vijay Goel and Dr. Lisa Ferrera, highlighted the role of computational modeling and mechanical testing in establishing standards in the design and evaluation of spinal devices. Dr. Nadim Hallab, an immunologist of musculoskeletal tissue, reported on the host response to implants. Clinical aspects of the Symposium focused primarily on deformity, especially in the sagittal plane. As a reader you can access the discussions of how to measure deformity and the role of pelvic alignment. Learn about treatment options included osteotomy and lateral approaches, and discussions on the role of biologics and the promise of navigation. Enjoy the debate on the role of rigidity in fixation (rigid vs. semi-rigid).Read this special issue for FREE now.Published April 2016
