Overview

Representing the collective efforts of a multinational, multidisciplinary panel of spine and spinal cord trauma masters, this beautifully illustrated evidence-based textbook does more than provide multiple treatment options — it offers unique access to insights from recognized spine experts and a thoughtful yet practical review of the most relevant literature and clinical evidence available in the field today. Each chapter centers on pertinent questions and objective reviews of state-of-the-art procedures that guide readers from an evaluation of the evidence through practical recommendations they can easily apply to their own practices.

Features:

  • Succinct outline format — easy to read and reference
  • 138 detailed evidentiary tables appear throughout the text
  • An innovative new classification system for spine trauma developed by The Spine Trauma Study Group, composed of 50 internationally recognized spine experts
  • High-quality radiographs and full-color drawings and photographs complement the text
  • Practical recommendations for the treatment of many common spinal injuries, including odontoid fractures, central cord injuries, and thoraco-lumbar flexion distraction injuries —in-depth information on everything from intensive care to rehabilitation
  • An accompanying DVD contains 15 narrated videos — over one hour of footage — of actual procedures by the authors

Spine and Spinal Cord Trauma: Evidence-Based Management is an invaluable reference for orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, residents and fellows in those specialties, and allied health professionals who care for spine injury patients.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book covers injuries to the spinal column and spinal cord.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate readers on how to manage spine trauma using mainly evidence-based medical studies in the literature, consensus opinions, and the personal experience of the authors.
Audience: The audience is mainly orthopedists, neurosurgeons, and their trainees, but researchers in the field, therapists, nurses, and rehabilitation staff would also find this book helpful.
Features: The book covers injury at all levels of the vertebral column from the cervical spine to the sacrum. The topics of evidence-based medicine, emergency room evaluation, intensive care unit management, pharmacology, rehabilitation, and transitional research are discussed. The chapters are well organized and supported with excellent tables and current and relevant references.
Assessment: Many of the authors belong to the Spine Trauma Study Group (STSG), a multidisciplinary and multinational group of neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons. They have taken on the task of gathering state-of-the-art, evidence-based medical information on spinal trauma. This valuable work represents their initial major findings. I very highly recommend it to all medical personnel and researchers caring for patients with spinal and spinal cord trauma.
From the Publisher
I would recommend this text to neurosurgeons and orthopeaedic surgeons.-JOST
