As time progresses, and more knowledge accumulates on Neurotraumatology.
This volume of papers represents the Proceedings of International
Conference on Recent Advances in Neurotraumatology, which was sponsored by
World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies, held in Bali – Indonesia on
August 1st-4th, 2002, with the Theme "Pathofisiology and treatment of
neurotrauma based on scientific evidence". Each main topic provides and
represents recent advances in neurotraumatology from master and experts of
whole over the world neurosurgical centers.
It provides recent advances in basic researches,
epidemiological review, clinical application, management and guidelines in
neurotraumatology and even conduct special issues on Spinal Cord Injury.
The entire scientific program has been arranged to
