AbstractText: Skeletal muscle spasticity is a major physical complication resulting from traumatic braininjury (TBI), which can lead to muscle contracture, joint stiffness, reduced range of movement, broken skin and pain. Treatments for spasticity include a range of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions, often used in combination. Management of spasticity following TBI varies from other clinical populations because of the ...

Most participants could identify potential concussion sequelae, but only 86 (34.3%) identified a concussion as a braininjury. Of the subgroups, coaches scored highest on knowledge questions.
Airway management strategies for the care of the polytrauma patient are reviewed, with specific considerations for those presenting with traumatic braininjury, suspected c-spine injury, the contaminated airway, the agitated trauma patient, maxillofacial trauma, and the traumatized airway. An approach to airway management that considers the potential anatomic and physiologic challenges in caring for these complicated trauma patients is ...
Traumatic braininjury often produces executive dysfunction... We hypothesized that executive dysfunction after traumatic braininjury would be associated with abnormal corticostriatal interactions, a question that ... and structural integrity between groups of 42 patients with traumatic braininjury and 21 age-matched controls... Traumatic braininjury patients showed disruption to functional connectivity between the caudate and ...

Mild traumatic braininjuries (mTBIs) have frequently been associated with the emergence and persistence of depressive symptoms. However, the factors which contribute to the increased risk for depression after these head injuries remain unclear. Accordingly, we examined the relationship between frequency of self-reported mTBIs and current symptoms of depression and the mediating role of rumination and cognitive flexibility.

AbstractText: The Eurotherm3235 trial showed that therapeutic hypothermia was deleterious in patients with raised intracranial pressure following traumatic braininjury. We sought to ascertain if increased temperature variability within the first 48 hours, or for 7 days post randomization, were modifiable risk factors associated with poorer outcome AbstractText: Eurotherm3235 was a multicenter randomized controlled trial.
AbstractText: Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) on MRI has been associated with poor functional outcome after moderate-severe traumatic braininjury (msTBI. Yet, DAI assessment with highly-sensitive MRI-techniques is unfeasible in the acute trauma setting, and CT remains the key diagnostic modality despite its lower sensitivity. We sought to determine whether CT-defined-hemorrhagic-DAI (hDAI) is associated with ...

PPP controlled pelvic hemorrhage in all patients. Overall mortality rate was 7% with one death due to traumatic braininjury.PPP is effective for hemorrhage control in patients with open pelvic fractures. PPP should be used in a standard protocol for hemodynamically unstable patients with pelvic fractures regardless of associated perineal injuries.

Abstract: Research on changes in personality and behavior following braindamage has focused largely on negative outcomes, such as increased irritability, moodiness, and social inappropriateness. However, clinical observations suggest that some patients may actually show positive personality and behavioral changes following a neurological event. In the current work, we investigated neuroanatomical correlates of positive personality and behavioral changes following a ...
Abstract: The development of novel neuroprotective treatments for acute stroke has been fraught with failures, which supports the view of ischemic braindamage as a highly complex multifactorial process. Post-translational modifications such as small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO)ylation have emerged as critical molecular regulatory mechanisms in states of both homeostasis and ischemic stress, as evidenced by our previous ...
