radiation injury to spinal cord

Hello. I received a call today from a physician with a 63 year old male patient who received radiation to head/neck 13 years ago and is now showing signs of damage to the cervical spinal cord that is thought to be secondary to radiation.  Does anyone have experience treating this diagnosis or know of some literature on the topic?

Thanks in advance

We have had 2 cases: one was a cervical cord injury which was covered by the insurance company. He did very well with treatment. The second was a thoracic cord injury. She was not covered by her insurance company and did fairly well with treatment. Both had extensive documentation of their injuries. I hope this helps.
