Basic Principles in the Management of Spinal Injuries
Descriptions of spinal injuries with neural damage have been found in the earliest of medical writings. Between 1900 and 1935 the incidence of such injuries increased slowly. Since the Second World War further steady increase has led to an incidence of 35 cases per million of population per year in Western countries. Non-traumatic causes of paraplegia account on average for another 15–20 cases per million of population per year.
