Recent advances in traumatic brain injury
A large proportion of individuals with traumatic brain injuries TBI sustain long-term physical, cognitive, and emotional impairments that have a profound impact on their everyday level of functioning, community participation, and reintegration 1. Participation in daily life activities and work is identified as one of the most important outcomes of TBI-rehabilitation by patients, their families and healthcare professionals. Identifying predictors for long-term participation is complicated, as there is a complex interaction between several influential factors 2. For example, motor and cognitive deficits appear to have significant impact on participation in the early stages, whereas personal, emotional and social factors play a major role in later stages of TBI 3. Injury-specific factors seem to play the largest prognostic role early on, whilst general factors such as resilience, access to social support, and degree of pre- and co-morbid psychological problems, play a greater role in long-term adjustment 4. There are a limited number of well-designed TBI studies examining determinants of participation by the individuals with TBI, effective rehabilitation and community re-entry programs, and long-term outcomes.
Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury in Females: A State-of-the-Art Summary and Future Directions
Higher rates of morbidity and mortality are seen in low-income and middle-income countries making it a global health challenge. There has been a secular trend towards reduced incidence of severe TBI in the first world, driven by public health interventions such as seatbelt legislation, helmet use, and workplace health and safety regulations. This has paralleled improved outcomes following TBI delivered in a large part by the widespread establishment of specialised neurointensive care. This update will focus on three key areas of advances in TBI management and research in moderate and severe TBI: refining neurointensive care protocolized therapies, the recent evidence base for decompressive craniectomy and novel pharmacological therapies. In each section, we review the developing evidence base as well as exploring future trajectories of TBI research. Traumatic brain injury TBI can be defined as the disruption in brain function, or other evidence of brain pathology, caused by an external physical force [ 1 ].
Trauma tic brain injury TBI is a leading cause of death and disability among young adults. CT remains the imaging modality of choice in the acute setting, in order to triage patients requiring emergent surgical intervention or conservative medical management. Some patients with mild TBI or concussion have a wide variety of neurological and psychological symptoms where CT and MR remain normal. Future research is needed to validate new imaging techniques and determine which imaging technique most accurately reveals abnormalities that correlate with functional deficits. Trauma tic brain injury TBI is a form of brain damage caused by external mechanical force, such as rapid acceleration or deceleration injury, direct impact, blast waves or penetration by a projectile, leading to temporary or permanent impairments, functional disability or psychosocial maladjustment.
Aims: Based on important predictors, global functional outcome after traumatic brain injury TBI may vary significantly over time. This study sought to: 1 describe changes in the Glasgow Outcome Scale—Extended GOSE score in survivors of moderate to severe TBI, 2 examine longitudinal GOSE trajectories up to 10 years after injury, and 3 investigate predictors of these trajectories based on socio-demographic and injury characteristics. Methods: Socio-demographic and injury characteristics of 97 TBI survivors aged 16—55 years were recorded at baseline. Conclusion: A larger proportion of survivors experienced deterioration in GOSE scores over time, supporting the concept of TBI as a chronic health condition. Younger age, pre-injury employment, and shorter PTA duration are important prognostic factors for better long-term global outcomes, supporting the existing literature, whereas male gender and white collar occupation are vaguer as prognostic factors. This information suggests that more intensive and tailored rehabilitation programs may be required to counteract a negative global outcome development in survivors with predicted worse outcome and to meet their long-term changing needs.

Language: English Spanish French. Michael K. Cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and sensorimotor disturbances are the principal clinical manifestations of traumatic brain injury TBI throughout the early postinjury period. These post-traumatic neuropsychiatric disturbances present substantial challenges to patients, their families, and clinicians providing their rehabilitative care, the optimal approaches to which remain incompletely developed. In this article, a neuropsychiairically informed, neurobiologically anchored approach to understanding and meeting challenges is described.

- Чтоб мы не надоедали. - Значит, я не могу сойти. Парень захохотал. - Доедешь до конечной остановки, приятель.
PDF | On Feb 1, , Patrick S Ledwidge published Review of 'Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury: Current Research and Future Directions.
Увы, ее руки уперлись в холодное стекло. Хейл с перепачканным кровью лицом быстро приближался к. Его руки снова обхватили ее - одна сдавила левую грудь, другая - талию - и оторвали от двери.
Консьерж снова покачал головой: - Ресторан закрылся полчаса. Полагаю, Росио и ее гость ушли на вечернюю прогулку. Если вы оставите для нее записку, она получит ее прямо с утра. - Он направился к полке с ячейками для ключей и почты. - Быть может, я мог бы позвонить в номер и… - Простите, - сказал консьерж, и вся его любезность мгновенно улетучилась.
Женщина сочувственно кивнула. - Поссорились.
Вдоволь посмеявшись, он исчез бы насовсем, превратившись в легенду Фонда электронных границ. Сьюзан стукнула кулаком по столу: - Нам необходимо это кольцо. Ведь на нем - единственный экземпляр ключа! - Теперь она понимала, что нет никакой Северной Дакоты, как нет и копии ключа.
Сьюзан вспомнила о единственном остающемся выходе - личном лифте Стратмора. Но она понимала, что надежды нет: электроника вряд ли уцелела после катастрофы. Двигаясь в дыму, она вдруг вспомнила слова Хейла: У этого лифта автономное электропитание, идущее из главного здания. Я видел схему. Она знала, что это .
Con permiso! - крикнул санитар.
