The aim: to conduct comparative retro- and prospective study of treatment outcomes in patients with cervical spine and SC injuries on the basis of assessment scale analysis. Material and Methods. 217 patients with closed cervical spine and SC injuries commeasurable by age, degree of neurological deficit, acute physiological and chronic state disorders were enrolled into the study. 177 patients comprised the main group (prospective study) and 40 — comparison group (retrospective study). To compare treatment outcomes we used Karnofsky score (Karnofsky, 1949), a quantitative assessment score for general patient status scales, APACHE II, Acute Physiology and Chronic State Evaluations (Knaus — Draper, 1985) and SCIM II, Spinal Cord Independence Measure Scale. Results. Comparative analysis based on the quantitative values of assessment scales, indicates an improvement of short-term treatment outcomes in patients with SC and cervical spine injuries in the main group. Conclusion. Complex approach to differentiated surgical treatment management and unique neuroprotection methods significantly improves short-term treatment outcomes having positive effect on general patient status, severity of acute physiological and chronic state disorders and patients' independence in the post-surgical period.
