The book presents a new method in the management of spasticity based on the use of modern implantable infusion systems and on local-spinal administration of antispastic agents. With regard to efficacy, this therapy is superior to all other current antispastic regimens. In the book, basic experimental studies on spinal pharmacology of the drugs used are presented, and other therapeutic regimens for spasticity (systemic medication, surgical therapy and neural stimulation) are reviewed. The technological equipment and its application for different indications of regional therapy is explained in detail. Since the subject of local-spinal therapy of spasticity has so far not been treated in a comprehensive, compact form, the purpose of this volume is to inform the reader about this new and highly effective method. In the future this therapy is likely to play an important role in the rehabilitation of severely handicapped patients after central nervous lesion. Possible long-term results are also presented for the first time.
