The major focus of this chapter is the discussion of priorities of evaluation and management guidelines in patients with intracranial and spinal injuries. Specific neurosurgical and orthopedic interventions for spine injury are not addressed. In an ideal collaborative environment, patients with polytrauma should be seen not only by trauma surgeons, but also by neurosurgeons and consulting neurologists.4
