Abstract

Numerous secondary neurologic and systemic complications can occur in the face of a spinal cord injury. The goal of immediate treatment is early spine immobilization and realignment, stabilization of hemodynamic and pulmonary status, prompt radiographic evaluation, and prevention of medical complications. These measures should optimize the chances for neurologic recovery.
