Описание: Distinguished researchers review the latest scientific understanding of spinal cord injury (SCI), focusing on the mechanisms causing paralysis after spinal cord trauma, the molecular determinants of neural regeneration, and methods for improving damaged function. The authors examine the role of intracellular Ca2+ in neuronal death, the possibility of spinal learning, growth-promoting molecules for regenerating neurons, and the biochemistry and cell biology of microtubules. Among the treatment possibilities discussed are cell transplantation strategies beyond the use of fetal spinal cord tissue, remyelination in spinal cord demyelination models, high steroid therapy immediately after SCI, and the mixed use of anti- and proinflammatories. Comprehensive and highly promising, Neurobiology of Spinal Cord Injury summarizes and integrates the great progress that has been made in understanding and combating the paralysis that follows spinal cord injury.

Описание: This text is designed primarily to help recently qualified staff and professionals develop an insight into the implications of a spinal cord injury, and the role that they play in enabling the patient and their family to tolerate the complex and time consuming process of care and rehabilitation.
Описание: Reviews the controversies pertaining to the emergency, diagnostic, medical, and surgical management of spinal cord injury (SCI). This book scrutinizes the scientific data and summarizes the foundations of rational treatment paradigms. It also contains topics that include: the timing of decompressive surgery, and the adjunctive use of solumedrol.
Описание: This book presents a comprehensive overview of the basic science and current clinical knowledge on cavernous malformations of the brain and spinal cord. Cavernous Malformations of the Brain and Spinal Cord begins by covering general aspects of the disease, including the natural history, molecular biology, pathological processes, genetic basis, neuroradiology, and classification of cavernous malformations. Separate chapters then address the various types of cavernous malformations, thoroughly describing the clinical presentation and management approaches for each clinical situation. Incisive review of recent literature sheds light on topics of incidence, location, and outcomes.

Описание: Autonomic dysfunction is a major and poorly understood consequence of spinal cord injury. It is a cause of very serious disability and requires much more
research. It should be a focus of treatment strategies.
This book will be of interest to anyone involved in research and treatment of spinal cord injury since it helps to explain
the tremendously negative impact on the body caused by cord injury that is not as obvious as paralysis and loss of sensation. It contains a compilation of what is known about bladder,
cardiovascular, bowel and sexual dysfunction after spinal cord injury, as
it relates to the changes within the autonomic nervous system control of these functions. The book begins with a description of the time course of autonomic dysfunctions and their
ramifications from the first hours after a spinal cord injury to the more stable chronic states.
The next section contains three chapters that address anatomical findings that may
provide some of the foundation for autonomic dysfunctions in many of the systems. The system-specific chapters then follow in four sections. Each section begins with a chapter or two
defining the clinical problems experienced by people with cord injury.
The following chapters present research, basic and clinical, that address the autonomic

Описание: Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injury comprehensively covers the medical and pathological issues related to neurotrauma and its often devastating consequences. Written by globally renowned experts in the field, both clinicians and researchers will find this book invaluable to update their knowledge. This volume is divided into two sections, one covering the brain, the other the spinal cord. Each section discusses the following topics: • The demographic in the developed and developing world where neurotrauma is witnessing a massive expansion • Major clinical issues including advanced semi-experimental monitoring techniques utilized by neurosurgeons and intensivists and the potential use of identifying markers of tissue injury • Overview of major pathophysiological changes • The development of animal models; successes and limitations • Past, current and future therapeutic strategies including rehabilitative opportunities. Presenting the most up-to-date clinical and experimental research in neurotrauma, this volume is essential reading for neurologists, neurosurgeons, intensive care physicians and rehabilitative physicians.

Описание: Disorders of the spine, particularly spinal cord compression from both neoplastic and non-neoplastic disease, are common clinical problems. Written by authors with complementary backgrounds in neurology and neurosurgery, this book focuses on diagnosing spinal diseases, but also addresses neurosurgical therapy, developmental disorders of the spine and trauma, and biomechanics.
