You may not sell, republish, or systematically distribute any published materials without written permission from JNSPG. 2013 Introduction: GRASSP was developed to capture subtle changes in neurological impairment of the upper extremity after cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) during the acute, sub-acute, and chronic phases. Psychometric properties of reliability and validity are well established. Responsiveness testing is required to

Surgeons. You may not sell, republish, or systematically distribute any published materials without written permission from JNSPG. 2014 Introduction Objectives of health care reform highlight reducing costs and improving patient outcomes. Of particular interest are spinal surgeries, often performed on chronic back pain patients unresponsive to non-operative care. The patient experience is important and we investigate which factors predict overall patient satisfaction following surgery. The objective of this study is to examine the relationships between patient

with long-term dysfunction versus recovery. Development of translational therapies for improving LUT function after SCI depends on identifying early predictors of chronic disease. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine longitudinal LUT function after experimental SCI to determine predictors of long-term dysfunction. Methods: 10 Sprague-Dawley rats underwent mid-cervical contusion. Voiding behavior was assessed pre-injury and 4, 6, 8, 12 weeks post-SCI using chromatographic evaluation of volitional (normal) vs. non-volitional (abnormal) bladder

materials without written permission from JNSPG. 2015 Introduction No treatment exists to restore lost brain function after stroke. Animal studies demonstrate that brain transplantation of SB623, a human modified bone marrow derived stromal cell, after experimental stroke can improve neurologic outcome. This clinical study is the first North American trial of intraparenchymal transplantation of bone marrow derived cell therapy for chronic stroke patients. Methods This is a two center open-label safety, dose escalation feasibility study. Stereotactic

permanent thrombotic and hemorrhagic events. Clopidogrel therapy ≤ 6 months is associated with higher rates of thrombotic events. Loading doses of ASA and clopidogrel were associated with decreased incidence of hemorrhagic events. PFT did not have any significant association with symptomatic events.

.1%), thyroid (3.8%), renal (19.9%), and prostate (21.1%) cancer who underwent surgery. A multiple logistic regression model identified 9 independent parameters that were used to construct the MSTFI: anemia, chronic lung disease, coagulopathy, electrolyte abnormalities, pulmonary circulation disorders, renal failure, malnutrition, emergent/urgent admission, and anterior/combined surgical approach. Patients with 0 points were categorized as not frail, 1 as mildly frail, 2 as moderately frail, and =3 as severely frail. Results: The overall perioperative complication rate
