As time progresses, and more knowledge accumulates on Neurotraumatology. This volume of papers represents the Proceedings of International Conference on Recent Advances in Neurotraumatology, which was sponsored by World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies, held in Bali Indonesia on August 1st-4th, 2002, with the Theme "Pathofisiology and treatment of neurotrauma based on scientific evidence". Each main topic provides and represents recent advances in neurotraumatology from master and experts of whole over the world neurosurgical centers.

It provides recent advances in basic researches, epidemiological review, clinical application, management and guidelines in neurotraumatology and even conduct special issues on Spinal Cord Injury.

The entire scientific program has been arranged to identify current problems, and opportunity to develop new direction policy. We believe that this event will provide and represent opportunity for sharing experience from many neurosurgical centers on brain and spinal cord injury.

The Local Organizing Committee greatly appreciates a worldwide participation. Without you, the conference will not have the chance to make a difference in the Neurosurgical Society.
