Lectures and videos from last year's symposium

Besides myelopathy, the experts addressed surgical access to the cervical vertebrae, trauma, tumours and deformities of the cervical spine. After a detailed overview of imaging procedures, they presented complex cases. Participants benefit from cutting-edge scientific knowledge but also had the opportunity to interact in the case presentations.
