 An Expert Consensus on Spine and Spinal Cord Injury

When treating trauma cases, the early management of acute thoracolumbar spine and spinal cord injury is one of the most difficult tasks.

To standardize the evaluation and treatment of acute thoracolumbar spinal injury, the Chinese Association of Spine and Spinal Cord Injury organized a group of Chinese experts to collectively discuss the draft of "An Expert Consensus on the Evaluation and Treatment of Acute Thoracolumbar Spine and Spinal Cord Injury". The report is based on a detailed literature search and analysis of evidence-based medicine and clinical experiences as well as Delphi method.

This is the first time that Chinese experts have published a consensus on spine and spinal cord injury. Experts from the Beijing Army General Hospital of Chinese PLA drafted this consensus. This consensus is a standard for the management of acute spine and spinal cord injury and was approved by domestic experts. It could standardize the evaluation and treatment of acute thoracolumbar spine and spinal cord injury. The relevant contents were published in the Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 8, No. 33, 2013).
