Spinal Cord Injuries: Comprehensive Management and Research

Spinal Cord Injuries: Comprehensive Management and Research The new edition of this comprehensive treatise continues to be an outstanding book written by the man who instigated the formation of centers devoted to the care of para- and quadriplegic patients. These have spread from the original center at Stokes-Mandeville, England, to centers in all continents. At their best, they provide not only for the medical and surgical care of the patients, but also for help in emotional, educational, occupational, recreational, and social aspects of these tragic patients. All these aspects are dealt with in detail by Sir Ludwig. There is a new chapter, "Spinal Cord Ischaemia—Animal Experiments," which really deals with the current research on injuries of the spinal cord in animals, but which fails to mention the use of corticosteroids. Up-to-date material has been added on spinal shock, classification of injuries, deep vein thrombosis, respiratory and renal complications, and legal aspects of spine injuries.

Abstract

The new edition of this comprehensive treatise continues to be an outstanding book written by the man who instigated the formation of centers devoted to the care of para- and quadriplegic patients. These have spread from the original center at Stokes-Mandeville, England, to centers in all continents. At their best, they provide not only for the medical and surgical care of the patients, but also for help in emotional, educational, occupational, recreational, and social aspects of these tragic patients. All these aspects are dealt with in detail by Sir Ludwig. There is a new chapter, "Spinal Cord Ischaemia—Animal Experiments," which really deals with the current research on injuries of the spinal cord in animals, but which fails to mention the use of corticosteroids. Up-to-date material has been added on spinal shock, classification of injuries, deep vein thrombosis, respiratory and renal complications, and legal aspects of spine injuries.
