Abstract:

During the Second World War mobile neurosurgical unites were provided for nearly every theatre of war ... This specialized service combined with the then new antibiotic drugs ensured that most of these wounds healed without infective complications. Many hundreds of case records were collected in connexion with the work of the Military Hospital for Head Injuries which occupied St. Hugh's College, Oxford during the war years and acted a home base for neurosurgical units. Summaries of many of the cases are included in this study and the names of the medical officers and specialists responsible are listed in the appendix.
