An Overview of Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury
Although some patients ofSCI are caused by non-traumatic reasons, such as, tumor, tuberculosis, spine degeneration, and so on, traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) remains the mainstay of epidemiologic survey of SCI.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy and comprehensive orthopedic treatment for incomplete traumatic spinal cord injury on the qinghai-tibet plateau: Study protocol for an open-label randomized controlled clinical trial
A prospective randomized controlled clinical trial to observe the effect of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on traumatic spinal cord injury in patients living on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau demonstrated that after four treatment courses, the modified Barthel index and ASIA tactile, pain, and motor scores were higher in the hyper baric oxygen group than in the control group.
Partial Restoration of Spinal Cord Neural Continuity via Sural Nerve Transplantation Using a Technique of Spinal Cord Fusion
- MedicineFrontiers in Neuroscience
SNT was able to fuse the axonal stumps of white cord and sural nerve and at least partially improve the cord central pain in most patients and could restore spinal cord continuity in the cortico-trunco-reticulo-propriospinal pathway, thereby restoring in part some motor and sensory functions.
