Head injury is the most common cause of neurologic illness in young people. The overall incidence of traumatic brain injury in the US is approximately 550/100,000 - approximately 2 million per year. Two-thirds of TBIs are considered "mild", whereas 20% are severe and 10% are fatal. Rate of TBI are highest in the very young, adolescents, and the elderly.

AbstractText: Skeletal muscle spasticity is a major physical complication resulting from traumatic brain injury (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 ...

5. Airway Management in Trauma.  
Date: 11/14/2017
Emergency medicine clinics of North America 
Airway management strategies for the care of the polytrauma patient are reviewed, with specific considerations for those presenting with traumatic brain injury, 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 ...

Mild traumatic brain injuries (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 brain injury. 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 brain injury (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 brain injury.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 brain damage 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 brain damage 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 ...
