Ebrain (www.ebrainJNC.com) is the largest and most comprehensive web-based training resource in clinical neurosciences, both for training and continuous professional development. In the field of spinal diseases, eBrain offers lots of information regarding different aspects of spinal cord problems.
Spinal disease is a multi-disciplinary subject with important contributions from neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, neuroradiologists, neurophysiologists, pain specialists, rehabilitationists and the multidisciplinary team. Clinicians involved in the diagnosis and management of spinal disease face extraordinary challenges. While advances in neuroimaging have provided great insight into the disordered anatomy that underlies many conditions, there is still much to be learnt about the basic mechanisms of disordered development, the physiology and pathophysiology of spinal cord function, the mechanisms of spinal repair and effective rehabilitation, neuroinflammation, infection etc.
The module eSpine includes 8 topics related to anatomy, radiology, autonomic function of the spinal cord, clinical examination and assessment of the spinal patient, spinal trauma, elective spinal disease, neoplastic spinal disease, medullary infections structured in almost 100 presentation, each lasting 20 minutes. Spinal surgery from the neurosurgical and orthopaedic perspectives is a rapidly developing field. This is reflected in the topic surgical principles, techniques. Finally the reader can fiind comprehensive information regarding spinal rehabilitation.
