Abstract:
Trauma is one of the highest burdens of disease in the world and traumatic spinal
cord injury (SCI) is a major permanent sequelae of trauma. Unfortunately there are no
preventative procedures outside of safety and regulatory statutes that influences the
incidence of traumatic spinal cord injury. There are many therapeutic approaches to SCI
including immobilization, respiratory and hemodynamic stabilization, pharmacologic
treatment including high dose methylprednisolone, surgical decompression, stabilization
and rehabilitation.
A literature review was performed using PUBMED from 1966 to 7th March 2009.
Cross referencing of discovered articles were also reviewed.
Spinal cord decompression and its value in neurologic recovery is a controversial
issue. There have been a series of studies evaluating various physical and medicinal
interventions in SCI in both human and animal models. Experimental animal models are
designed to recreate patterns of injury to the spinal cord such as contusion models by
different weight drop instruments, aneurysmal clip compression, epidural balloon
expansion, spinal cord wiring, or mixture of mechanisms resulting in spinal compression.
Animal models have included rodents, cats, dogs, and primates.
The results of animal studies have shown that aside from the kind of procedure and
species, when compression is less severe and of shorter duration, the recovery is
significantly better. In severe and long lasting compression, there is no recovery in
complete SC injured animals.
