Guidelines for the Management of Acute Cervical Spine and Spinal Cord Injuries

03 Spine Guidelines 2013The updated Guidelines for the Management of Acute Cervical Spine and Spinal Cord Injuries is now online and full-text access is free.

“This update of the Guidelines for the Management of Acute Cervical Spine and Spinal Cord Injuries is an impressive accomplishment. The evolution of skill in evidence-based review in neurosurgery is evident throughout the document, as every process has been improved over the last decade. The authors have not only updated the guidelines based on new literature, but they have improved the applicability of the guidelines to clinical practice through better question formulation, illustrated graphically the evolution of evidence to allow readers to appreciate what has been learned over the past decade, and incorporated a more sophisticated discussion of the literature to explain areas of continued uncertainty. The reader is encouraged to critically read the supporting evidence for the recommendations in order to appreciate the context of the recommendations as well as the limitations. The authors are congratulated on an outstanding piece of work.” – Resnick, Daniel K. MD
