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.

The Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score is the most widely utilized measure of traumatic brain injury (TBI) severity. Currently, the arrival GCS motor score (mGCS) is used in risk-adjustment models for external benchmarking of mortality. However, there is evidence that the highest mGCS in the first 24 hours after injury might be a better predictor of death.

Often the clinician is faced with a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma in patients with concomitant traumatic brain injury (TBI) and hemorrhagic shock (HS), as rapid deterioration from either can be fatal. Knowledge about outcomes after concomitant TBI and HS may help prioritize the emergent management of these patients. We hypothesized that patients with concomitant TBI and HS (TBI + HS) had ...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have lifelong and dynamic effects on health and wellbeing. Research on the long-term consequences emphasises that, for many patients, TBI should be conceptualised as a chronic health condition. Evidence suggests that functional outcomes after TBI can show improvement or deterioration up to two decades after injury, and rates of all-cause mortality remain elevated ...

Very few options exist for patients who survive severe traumatic brain injury but fail to fully recover and develop a disorder of consciousness (e.g. vegetative state, minimally conscious state).Among pharmacological approaches, Amantadine has shown the ability to accelerate functional recovery. Although with very low frequency, Zolpidem has shown the ability to improve the level of consciousness transiently and ...
