Persons living with SCI experience an accelerated trajectory of all-cause cardioendocrine diseases, which ultimately decays health and independence. Current evidence indicates that systematic surveillance of, and timely intervention on post-SCI risks is suboptimal. The presentation will address triage and treatment of risks for cardiometabolic disease after SCI, and present data on novel molecular tools undergoing pre-clinical testing. If translated for human use, these interventions may more effectively manage risks accompanying SCI and other disabilities. Recent finalization of the first evidence-based guide for post-SCI cardiometabolic disease identification and management recommends primary surveillance and aggressive intervention on these hazards.
