About Acute Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal Cord Injury, Severity, and Treatment
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that connects the body to the brain. These nerves carry signals to every part of the body. A spinal cord injury disrupts the signals.
Spine injuries are fractures or compressions of the vertebrae, the bone disks that make up the spine. Most injuries don't cut through the spinal cord. Spinal cord injury can occur when pieces of vertebrae tear spinal cord tissue or create pressure on the nerves.
Cervical spinal cord injury refers to a type of injury in the neck area of the spine.
An acute spinal cord injury is a medical emergency. Treatments may include surgery to stabilize the spine and relieve pressure on the spinal cord.
The SPRING Trial is evaluating an investigational therapy, VX-210, which is applied to the spinal cord during initial decompression/stabilization surgery.
