  1. 1. Intracranial Pressure in Traumatic Brain Injury

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Sima Shahsavari; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Signalbehandling; Signal processing; Brain Swelling; Cerebral Compliance; Cerebral Autoregulation; Intracranial Dynamics; Intracranial Pressure; Secondary Brain Injury; Traumatic Brain Injury;

    Abstract : Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) continues to be a major problem worldwide. Today, intensive care of patients with TBI is mainely focused on preventing and treating secondary brain injuries. High pressure inside the intracranial cavity (ICP) has been found to be an important feature of disturbed cerebral dynamics and secondary injuries. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Studies on outcome and prognostic factors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marianne Lannsjö; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rehabilitation; Mild Traumatic Brain Injury; Rivermead Post-concussion Symptoms Questionnaire; Rasch-analysis; prediction; outcome; head CT pathology; Magnet Resonance Imaging; Rehabilitation Medicine; Rehabiliteringsmedicin;

    Abstract : Objectives: To explore the prevalence and structure of self-reported disability after mild traumatic brain injury and the impact of traumatic brain pathology on such outcome.Material and methods: In study 1-3, symptoms data were collected by use of Rivermead Post-concussion Symptoms Questionnaire (RPQ) and data on global function by use of Glasgow Outcome Scale Extended (GOSE) from 2602 patients at 3 months after MTBI.

  3. 3. Severe traumatic brain injury clinical course and prognostic factors

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Maud Stenberg; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Severe traumatic brain injury; outcome; rehabilitation; prognosis; rehabiliteringsmedicin; Rehabilitation Medicine;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) constitutes a major health problem and is a leading cause of long-term disability and death. Patients with severe traumatic brain injury, S-TBI, comprise a heterogeneous group with varying complexity and prognosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Brain Tissue Oxygenation in Traumatic Brain Injury Experimental and Clinical Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karlis Purins; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brain tissue oxygenation; Cerebral metabolism; Traumatic brain injury; Cerebral ischemia; Threshold levels; Neurovent-PTO; Microdialysis; Neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability. TBI is frequently followed by cerebral ischemia which is a great contributor to secondary brain damage. The main causes of cerebral ischemia are pathophysiological changes in cerebral blood flow and metabolism. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular Characterization of Experimental Traumatic Brain Injury

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Charlotte Israelsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Neurosciences; traumatic brain injury; transcripts; GeneChip; chemokine; inflammation; mouse brain; neuroprotection; neuronal injury; neuroregeneration; astrocytosis; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common cause of mortality and disability in the younger (<50 years) Swedish population with an incidence rate of 20,000 cases per year. This thesis aims to increase the understanding of brain injury mechanisms, especially in a molecular and cellular context. READ MORE
