Prevalence of non-traumatic spinal cord injury in Victoria, Australia
Spinal Cord, 06/21/2012
New PW et al. – The authors have reported a method for calculating an estimate of the prevalence of non–traumatic spinal cord injury (NTSCI) that provides information that will be vital to optimise health care planning for this group of highly disabled members of society. It is suggested that refinements to the modelling methods are required to enhance its reliability. Future projects should be directed at refining the mortality ratios and performing cohort survival studies.
