Spine and Spinal Cord Trauma: Evidence-Based Management

by

Spine and Spinal Cord Trauma: Evidence-Based Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

For clinicians, students, and researchers, Vaccaro (orthopedics and neurosurgery, Thomas Jefferson U. Hospital) et al. offer a textbook of 56 chapters on the evidence-based management of spine and spinal cord trauma at all levels. Members of the Spine Trauma Study Group, an international group of neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons, review the research literature, summarize the evidence from various studies, and recommend treatments and management protocols, as they discuss outcomes assessment, clinical assessment and fundamental principles, imaging, a problem-based approach to management, and the management of various injuries, as well as rehabilitation and emerging techniques and translational research. The DVD contains 13 narrated videos of procedures by the authors. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
