Summary "The clinical management of patients with acute brain and spinal cord injury has evolved significantly with the advent of new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Editors Bhardwaj, Ellegala, and Kirsch present Acute Brain and Spinal Cord Injury, a new standalone reference to help today's neurologists and neurosurgeons keep abreast of all the recent advancements in brain and spinal cord injury. Divided into five sections, traumatic brain injury ischemic stroke, intracerebral and subarachnoid hemorrhage, and spinal cord injury, this text offers the most current medical science and highlights controversies in the clinical management of patients with acute brain and spinal cord injuries."--Jacket
