SUMMARY

Severe head injuries are a frequent occurrence in the life of every emergency care specialist, traumatologist, neurosurgeon, and rehabilitation specialist. For example, between 30.000 to 40.000 severe head injuries occur in Germany each year. OVer 75.000 Americans die each year after having suffered a severe head injury. Nevertheless, treatment is not always optimal. Survival and longterm outcome depends not only on the type of injury but also on timely and appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Thus, all physicians involved must be aware of the current procedures in the management of severe head injuries. This reference book, based on the experience of international experts, provides an up to date and practical guideline
