Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Surgery
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

Michael G. Fehlings focuses on Spinal cord injury, Spinal cord, Surgery, Anesthesia and Physical therapy. Spinal cord injury is the subject of his research, which falls under Neuroscience. The various areas that Michael G. Fehlings examines in his Spinal cord study include Cord, Central nervous system, Anatomy and Pathology.

His research in Surgery intersects with topics in Magnetic resonance imaging and Myelopathy. His Anesthesia research includes elements of Autonomic dysreflexia, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. In his research on the topic of Physical therapy, Physical medicine and rehabilitation is strongly related with MEDLINE.

His most cited work include:

  • Review of the secondary injury theory of acute spinal cord trauma with emphasis on vascular mechanisms (1224 citations)
  • Administration of Methylprednisolone for 24 or 48 Hours or Tirilazad Mesylate for 48 Hours in the Treatment of Acute Spinal Cord Injury Results of the Third National Acute Spinal Cord Injury Randomized Controlled Trial (1186 citations)
  • Epidemiology, demographics, and pathophysiology of acute spinal cord injury. (969 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Michael G. Fehlings spends much of his time researching Surgery, Spinal cord injury, Spinal cord, Physical therapy and Anesthesia. His work on Prospective cohort study as part of general Surgery study is frequently linked to In patient, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Spinal cord injury study contributes to a more complete understanding of Neuroscience.

His work deals with themes such as Central nervous system disease, Cord, Central nervous system and Anatomy, which intersect with Spinal cord. His work carried out in the field of Anesthesia brings together such families of science as Acute spinal cord injury and Riluzole. His Myelopathy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Orthopedic surgery, Quality of life, Cohort and Spinal cord compression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Surgery (43.70%)
  • Spinal cord injury (43.89%)
  • Spinal cord (27.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Spinal cord injury (43.89%)
  • Myelopathy (19.52%)
  • Surgery (43.70%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Michael G. Fehlings mainly investigates Spinal cord injury, Myelopathy, Surgery, Spinal cord and Internal medicine. The Spinal cord injury study combines topics in areas such as Anesthesia and Transplantation. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Anesthesia, Decompression is strongly linked to MEDLINE.

His Myelopathy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Orthopedic surgery, Spinal cord compression, Prospective cohort study and Weakness. In general Surgery study, his work on Surgical decompression, Perioperative and Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion often relates to the realm of In patient, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Michael G. Fehlings interconnects Bioinformatics, Immunosuppression, Neuroprotection, Neuroinflammation and Radiology in the investigation of issues within Spinal cord.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Time is spine: a review of translational advances in spinal cord injury (60 citations)
  • Time is spine: a review of translational advances in spinal cord injury (60 citations)
  • Automatic segmentation of the spinal cord and intramedullary multiple sclerosis lesions with convolutional neural networks. (46 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Cancer

His primary areas of investigation include Spinal cord injury, Myelopathy, Spinal cord, Internal medicine and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. Michael G. Fehlings combines subjects such as Anesthesia, Transplantation and Cord with his study of Spinal cord injury. His Myelopathy research integrates issues from Clinical research, Spinal cord compression, Orthopedic surgery, Sensation and Weakness.

His Orthopedic surgery study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Surgery. His study in Surgery focuses on Decompression in particular. His Spinal cord study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Immune system, Cytokine, Interleukin 10, Intensive care medicine and Pathophysiology.
