Abstract

Caring for children and adolescents with high tetraplegic spinal cord injury (SCI) is particularly challenging because of the significant impact that their severe neurologic impairment has on all spheres of their lives. Distinctive anatomic, physiologic, growth, and development characteristics of children and adolescents result in unique manifestations, complications, and consequences in this population. This article will highlight several of the unique and critical aspects of high tetraplegic SCI in children and adolescents.
