Die Technik wird in einfachen Schritten erklärt, um einen breiten, interdisziplinären Interessentenkreis zu erreichen. Da der Schwerpunkt der Technik die Osteoporose betrifft, ist auch ein spezielles Kapitel der unbedingt notwendigen Begleitmedikation gewidmet. Die neue Operationstechnik wird auch mit Alternativen zur Kyphoplastie verglichen. Ferner wird ein neuartiges Nachbehandlungskonzept speziell für die dargestellte Technik eingeführt und erklärt. Abschließend werden Listen über Referenzzentren und Abrechnungsziffern für die Krankenkassen für die deutschsprachigen Länder angeführt. Die Autoren sind seit Jahren Instruktoren für die beschriebene Operationstechnik und haben in den letzten Jahren diese neuen Methoden an verschiedenen Krankenhäusern und Universitäten in Europa gelehrt und durchgeführt.

Dieses Lehrbuch leistet die Zusammenführung der bislang lediglich getrennt voneinander wahrgenommenen betriebswirtschaftlichen Disziplinen Beschaffung, Produktion und Marketing - und ist damit einzigartig auf dem deutschen Markt. Sein Mehrwert liegt in der klaren Darstellung der Interdependenzen und Einflüsse, welche diese ökonomischen Teilbereiche aufeinander ausüben. Wissenschaftlich anspruchsvoll, zugleich jedoch nachvollziehbar und kompakt folgt der Aufbau des Werks damit einer dezidiert anwendungsorientierten Konzeption. Praktische Relevanz steht hier im Vordergrund, wobei die konkreten Erfahrungen der Autoren aus Industrie und Wirtschaft verknüpft werden mit den theoretischen Aspekten von Beschaffung, Produktion und Marketing, was eine prägnante und verständliche Darstellung der Inhalte ermöglicht. Interessant ist dieses Lehrbuch insbesondere für Studierende sowie für PraxiseinsteigerInnen in den Bereichen Beschaffung, Produktion oder Marketing. Das umfassende Literaturverzeichnis animiert zur weiteren Beschäftigung mit den einzelnen Inhalten, zahlreiche Beispiele machen die vermittelte Theorie transparent und anwendbar.
