AbstractEditorial Comment:

For neurosurgeons, injuries of the head and spinal cord - the term neurotrauma is a convenient compendium - present a special challenge. Neurotrauma is, by almost any yardstick, the most important category of trauma. In our community there are more deaths from neurotrauma than from all other accidental injuries put together. Injuries to the brain and spinal cord are a leading cause of permanent post-traumatic disability, and an immeasurable cause of human misery.
