Acquired Damage to the Developing Brain: Timing and Causation

Acquired Damage to the Developing Brain: Timing and Causation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book reviews the multiple causes of damage to the developing brain, both and after birth. Written by an international multidisciplinary team it includes detailed scientific accounts of the cellular mechanisms, pathology and genetics of early brain damage and presents detailed clinical accounts of the manifestations and management of the various forms of cerebral palsy and their differential diagnosis. The subject of birth asphyxia is extensively covered from both clinical and basic scientific aspects.

There are detailed and generously illustrated descriptions of the imaging of the brain by ultrasound, CT and MRI imaging in early life, soon after damage, and in later life as the brain matures and thus may modify the appearance of the early damage.

The book also provides a comprehensive and fully referenced account of the mechanisms of brain damage for those involved in such cases and who may have little or no medical background. Reference to the medico-legal aspects of clinical care is made in many chapters. The final chapter of the book, written by a lawyer with an international reputation in the field, describes in detail the legal considerations in establishing causation.
