As you may be aware, there has recently been another round of e-blasts advocating the merger of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS). Neither the CNS nor the AANS supports such a merger – for many good reasons. In addition, during its April 2013 meeting the Council of State Neurosurgical Societies (CSNS), a national grassroots organization focused on neurosurgical socioeconomic issues, there was a thorough consideration of the various options for combining our two organizations. After comprehensive discussion and debate, the CSNS voted overwhelmingly to reject any form of CNS/AANS unification.
SCHAUMBURG, IL – March 21, 2013 – For the first time, the Joint Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons issued a recommendation against the use of steroids in acute spinal cord injury in the first 24 to 48 hours after an injury is sustained. This represents a change from the Section’s previously issued guidelines in 2002. The new 2013 guidelines have the potential to drastically impact the standard of care recommended for spinal cord injury patients.
For over 60 years the CNS has been a leading and innovative organization serving neurosurgery. Our dynamic society provides over 8,000 members worldwide with the most advanced educational experiences, leadership development opportunities, and advocacy. In the last year, our web-based learning and assessment tools drew record numbers of online participants, our pioneering neurosurgical simulation platform (CNS-SIM) was launched in the US with plans underway for deployment on three additional continents this year, and our expert dedicated members continued to develop the most current evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to promote access to the highest quality, most effective patient care in this rapidly changing healthcare environment.
