The clinical management of patients with acute brain and spinal cord injury has evolved significantly with the advent of new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Acute Brain and Spinal Cord Injury presents the latest medical science and highlights controversies in the clinical management of patients with acute brain and spinal cord injuries.
Divided into five sections—traumatic brain injury, ischemic stroke, intracerebral and subarachnoid hemorrhage, and spinal cord injury—this text:
- Delineates diagnostic and monitoring tools, pharmacotherapies, and interventional and surgical treatments
- Examines and explores recently published laboratory trials and research
- Incorporates over 50 diagrams and figures for concise communication of scientific information
This stand-alone reference is a powerful tool in helping today’s neurologists and neurosurgeons keep abreast of current advancements in brain and spinal cord injury.
"In Acute Brain and Spinal Cord Injury, the editors have built a vital ‘go-to’ text which serves as one-stop reference summarizing the latest advancements in the field…."In this clear and polished scientific reportage, each section is designed to give a complete summary of how different spinal cord or brain injuries are to be diagnosed and treated, with comprehensive coverage of all pharmacotherapies (in addition to interventional and surgical treatment options)…. A review of the latest research and laboratory trials that have taken place in the field has also been included, as readers are presented with the most up-to-date reference available on this highly nuanced and ever-changing sub-specialty….Recommended to all neurologists and cerebrovascular surgeons as in-office reference for use in the direct treatment of patients. Further recommended to all Health Science libraries as a general reference with long-term research value. Instructors should note that this title would also prove useful as a classroom teaching text in advanced courses designed to prepare the student for a career in neurological medicine." —John Aiello, The Electric Review
