Head Trauma
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Current research on the pathophysiological mechanisms of brain trauma is at the vanguard of neuroscience research. Clinical trials in head trauma are being conducted to determine the potential effectiveness of numerous drugs, with major results projected over the next few years. Unfortunately, no existing book presents the topic of head trauma with both a summary of the science and an extension of these findings into clinical applications. Head Trauma: Basic, Preclinical, and Clinical Directions fills the void in the literature on this subject. Providing an overview of the major modalities in head trauma therapeutics, this book not only offers a comprehensive presentation of the science in this area but also contains the most up-to-date discussion regarding the basis for experimental and clinical pharmacological treatment of head trauma. Chapters cover basic mechanisms, preclinical targets, clinical aspects with information on efficacy studies, and a straightforward, easy-to-follow presentation of the side effects and potency ratios. In addition, a list of major Web sites of interest and importance to neurotrauma researchers is included. Additional topics reviewed in Head Trauma: Basic, Preclinical, and Clinical Directions include: In vitro models of traumatic brain injury Receptor-based mechanisms in head trauma Mitochondrial dysfunction following traumatic brain injury Epidemiology and economics of head trauma Guidelines for medical and surgical management of head trauma patients used throughout the world Perspectives on the future of head trauma therapeutics And much more With this book, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurophysiologists, and neuroscientists now have a definitive reference on the subject of head trauma.
