About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Advanced knowledge is presented in a manner that will be accessible to trainees as well as experts in the field
    • The globally renowned contributing authors all write from personal experiences in the clinic and the lab
    • Each chapter begins with background information on pathophysiology to ensure the fundamentals are clear before new therapeutic methods are presented
