STUDY DESIGN Literature review. OBJECTIVES Update the global maps for traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) and incorporate methods for extrapolating incidence data. SETTING An initiative of the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) Prevention Committee. METHODS A search of Medline/Embase was performed (1959-Jun/30/2011). Enhancement of data-quality(More)
Central neuropathic pain following lesions within the CNS, such as spinal cord injury, is one of the most excruciating types of chronic pain and one of the most difficult to treat. The role of spinothalamic pathways in this type of pain is not clear. Previous studies suggested that spinothalamic tract lesions are necessary but not sufficient for development(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether Methenamine Hippurate (MH) or cranberry tablets prevent urinary tract infections (UTI) in people with neuropathic bladder following spinal cord injury (SCI). STUDY DESIGN Double-blind factorial-design randomized controlled trial (RCT) with 2 year recruitment period from November 2000 and 6 month follow-up. SETTING In(More)
STUDY DESIGN Literature review. OBJECTIVES To map traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) globally and provide a framework for an ongoing repository of data for prevention. SETTING An initiative of the ISCoS Prevention Committee. METHODS The results obtained from the search of Medline/Embase using search phrases: TSCI incidence, aetiology, prevalence and(More)
STUDY DESIGN Population modelling--forecasting. OBJECTIVES To estimate the global incidence of traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI). SETTING An initiative of the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) Prevention Committee. METHODS Regression techniques were used to derive regional and global estimates of TSCI incidence. Using the findings of 31(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the feasibility, acceptability, discriminative validity, responsiveness, and minimal important difference (MID) of the SF-6D for people with spinal cord injury (SCI). METHODS A total of 305 people with SCI completed the SF-36 health status questionnaire at baseline and at subsequent occurrence of a urinary tract infection (UTI) or(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether the provision of single lens distance glasses to older wearers of multifocal glasses reduces falls. DESIGN Parallel randomised controlled trial stratified by recruitment site and source of referral, with 13 months' follow-up and outcome assessors blinded to group allocation. SETTING Community recruitment and treatment room(More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluation of noninvasive stimulation modalities to augment cough and assist tracheostomy decannulation in high-level tetraplegia. STUDY DESIGN Single case study. METHODS A 65-year-old man with C4 ASIA C tetraplegia had delayed rehabilitation due to a tracheostomy and recurrent pneumonia primarily resulting from ineffective cough. Anterior(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the validity and responsiveness of a modified SF-36 within a spinal cord-injured (SCI) population. STUDY DESIGN SF-36 scores collected at baseline and on completion of a randomized controlled trial in 305 patients with SCI and neuropathic bladder. SETTING New South Wales, Australia. METHODS Subjects were administered the standard(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study. OBJECTIVES To review traumatic spinal cord injury rates and epidemiology at the Riyadh Military Hospital in Saudi Arabia and to hypothesise strategies for a more integrated approach to injury prevention in Saudi Arabia. SETTING RMH, Rehabilitation Division. METHODS A review was conducted of all patients with TSCI aged(More)
