New ISNCSCI revision released !
The 2019 revision of the International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury (ISNCSCI) was released at ASIA’s Honolulu meeting in Spring, 2019. This revision introduces two new concepts: 1) a new taxonomy for documentation of non-SCI related impairments such as peripheral nerve lesions or pain, and defines classification rules in the presence of such non-SCI conditions; and 2) the definition of the Zone of Partial Preservation has been changed and now can be used in some cases of incomplete injuries (ASIA Impairment Scale (AIS) grades B, C, and D) with absent motor function or sensory function in the most caudal sacral segments.
