Special Issue Information

The spinal cord is an integral part of the central nervous system (CNS): nerve fibers of the peripheral nervous system project from it, relaying signals to and from muscles and organs — enabling us to move, and to feel heat and pain. But unlike their peripheral cousins, nerves in the CNS very rarely recover from damage. That is why neurological adverse events with spinal cord ischemia (SCI) remain one of the most feared complications and these patients can develop irreversible paraplegia with lifelong consequences with physical and psychological agony.

The 2016 National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center's Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Facts and Figures reports approximately 17,000 new cases yearly, approximately 54 cases per million. A broad spectrum of diseases can cause spinal cord infarction along with traumatic spinal cord injuries.

Our understanding of the pathophysiological processes that comprise the early secondary phases of spinal cord injury such as spinal cord ischemia, cellular excitotoxicity, ionic dysregulation, and free-radical mediated peroxidation is far greater now than ever before, thanks to substantial laboratory research efforts. These discoveries are now being translated into the clinical realm and have led to targeted upfront medical management with a focus on tissue oxygenation and perfusion and include avoidance of hypotension, induction of hypertension, early transfer to specialized centers, and close monitoring in a critical care setting.

With this edition we aim to support a platform for global researchers to discuss & share their latest findings, research, and innovative concepts/opinions about “Prophylaxis, Monitoring & Resuscitation from Spinal cord injury”.

It (Science Citation Index Expanded) covers more than 8,500 notable and significant journals, across 150 disciplines in science and technology, from 1900 to the present.

Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition aims to evaluate a journal’s value from multiple perspectives including the journal impact factor, descriptive data about a journal’s open access content as well as contributing authors, and provide readers a transparent and publisher-neutral data & statistics information about the journal.

Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index The CAS Source Index (CASSI) Search Tool is an online resource that can quickly identify or confirm journal titles and abbreviations for publications indexed by CAS since 1907, including serial and non-serial scientific and technical publications.

IndexCopernicus The Index Copernicus International (ICI) Journals database’s is an international indexation database of scientific journals. It covered international scientific journals which divided into general information, contents of individual issues, detailed bibliography (references) sections for every publication, as well as full texts of publications in the form of attached files (optional). For now, there are more than 58,000 scientific journals registered at ICI.

Geneva Foundation for Medical Education and Research The Geneva Foundation for Medical Education and Research (GFMER) is a non-profit organization established in 2002 and it works in close collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO). The overall objectives of the Foundation are to promote and develop health education and research programs.
