Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eric J. Anish, MD (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Shadyside)
Description: This book is dedicated to the discussion of various neurologic head and spine injuries associated with participation in athletics.
Purpose: According to the editor, this book is designed to provide extensive information pertaining to neurologic injuries to the head and spine sustained during athletic participation. Given the importance of preventing and adequately treating such conditions, a well-written text on this subject could certainly prove quite beneficial. I believe that the editor has created a body of work that succeeds in meeting the stated objectives.
Audience: A review of the authors of this text reveals a collection of highly-respected, credible researchers and clinicians. The editor, also a contributing author, Dr. Robert Cantu, is a well-recognized authority on the subject of neurologic athletic head and spine injuries. Dr. Cantu states in the preface that the book is "not written exclusively for neurologists, neurosurgeons, and orthopedic surgeons...but also for...general practitioners, pediatricians, hospital emergency department physicians, internists, athletic trainers, EMTs, physical therapists, and chiropractors." I agree that any individual who cares for athletes who are at risk of sustaining head and spine injuries could benefit from the information included in this text.
Features: This comprehensive resource addresses topics related to neurologic athletic head and spine injuries such as injury epidemiology, prevention, on-the-field management, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and return-to-play decisions. Two unique and valuable components of this text are the inclusion of a chapter devoted to medicolegal considerations and 10 sport-specific chapters comprising one section of the book.
Assessment: This is an extremely valuable contribution to the literature on neurologic athletic head and spine injuries. The information provided will undoubtedly prove beneficial to variety of healthcare professionals who are interested in helping to prevent, and to care appropriately for, medical problems of this nature.
