In humans and other vertebrates the dorsal cavity is filled with fluid and houses the brain and spinal cord. It is actually further divided into 2 additional cavities: the cranial cavity and the spinal cavity. It is important to note that the dorsal cavity maintains separation of the blood and the dorsal cavity fluid (termed cerebrospinal fluid) by what is known as the blood brain barrier. As far as organs go the dorsal cavity protects the brain, meninges, spinal cord, discs and spinal cord nerves from trauma, infection and disease. Dorsal cavity injury can be due to things such as auto accidents, blunt force trauma, gunshot wounds, meningitis, falls, workplace accidents and surgical injuries. As the dorsal cavity maintains the 2 primary components of the Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord), injury can result in catastrophic injuries such as paralysis, diffuse axonal syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries.
