Fatal cerebral hemorrhage due to autonomic dysreflexia in a tetraplegic patient: case report and review
A case of fatal cerebral hemorrhage due to autonomic dysreflexia is presented in order to demonstrate the gravity of this particular syndrome.
Maggot therapy for treating pressure ulcers in spinal cord injury patients.
It is demonstrated that maggot therapy can be beneficial in the treatment of pressure ulcers in persons with spinal cord injuries and significantly more effective and efficient than the current, conventional treatment alternatives being used.
Sensory detection and pain thresholds in spinal cord injury patients with and without dysesthetic pain, and in chronic low back pain patients.

Fundamental differences in somatosensory processing when DPS is or is not a consequence of SCI are suggested, including a lower sensory detection threshold at the rostral trunk skin site than did the SCI no-pain group.
Incidence and characteristics of spinal cord injured patients with a family history of alcoholism.
Spinal cord injured subjects with a family history of alcoholism reported significantly more problems with alcohol before, at the time, and after their injury, suggesting a relationship between the predisposition to alcoholism and accidents that result in catastrophic injury.

The findings indicate that SCI patients with severe DPS have a higher sensitivity to somatosensory stimuli, particularly in skin areas with projections to primary somatoensory cortex areas adjacent to the deafferentated region.

Primary subcortical auditory information processing stages remain intact after SCI although later stages may be significantly altered, and cortical reorganization may occur subsequent to SCI.
