Outcome After Head, Neck and Spinal Trauma: A Medicolegal Guide
Robert Macfarlane (M.D.), David G. Hardy
Butterworth-Heinemann, 1997 - Medical - 439 pages
This is a definitive text, detailing the prognosis after a wide variety of specific traumatic injuries to the head, neck or spine. Well referenced, it will be a comprehensive guide to any surgeon who has to compile a medicolegal report on outcome. It does not include details of case law or agreed sums of compensation and will therefore have broad international appeal. It is the first single text to provide this information and has been compiled by over 40 UK and USA acknowledged experts.
