This hour-long webinar will focus on spinal ankylosing disorders: ankylosing spondylitis (AS), disseminated hyperostosis of the spine (DISH), and end-stage spondylosis. It will explore the current trends in AS presentation, technical nuances of treatment, early complications and associated outcomes of trauma in AS patients. Spinal ankylosing disorders represent a healthcare challenge. When these patients experience trauma, their injuries are often underestimated. They often experience prolonged inpatient hospitalizations with significant morbidity and mortality. This webinar will update and expand the knowledge of surgeons and help them evaluate, treat and counsel AS patients, including the risks unique to patients with ankylosing spondylitis.
