  1. 1. Traumatic brain injuries and whiplash injuries : epidemiology and long-term consequences

    Author : Johan Styrke; Britt-Marie Stålnacke; Ulf Björnstig; Peter Sojka; Per-Olof Bylund; David Cassidy; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Traumatic Brain Injuries; Whiplash Injuries; ; Epidemiology; ; Follow-up Studies; Cohort Studies; Epidemiology; epidemiologi; kirurgi; Surgery; rehabiliteringsmedicin; Rehabilitation Medicine;

    Abstract : BackgroundThe incidence of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) is about 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per year, a majority of which are mild TBI (MTBI). The incidence of whiplash injuries is about 300/100,000/year. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mild traumatic brain injuries : the impact of early intervention on late sequelae

    Author : Elisabeth Holmqvist Andersson; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : Mild traumatic brain injuries; epidemiology; post-concussion symptoms; randomised controlled trial; health-related quality of life; rehabilitation; outcome; assessment methods; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Aims: Studies I & II:To assess the incidence of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) in western Sweden and to investigate health-related quality of life and post-concussion symptoms (PCS). Study III: To test the hypothesis that a programme of early rehabilitation for selected Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) patients would reduce late sequelae. READ MORE

  3. 3. Intracranial Pressure in Traumatic Brain Injury

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

    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

  4. 4. On severe traumatic brain injury : aspects of an intra cranial pressure-targeted therapy based on the Lund concept

    Author : Magnus Olivecrona; Lars-Owe D Koskinen; Bertil Romner; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; severe traumatic brain injury; ICP targeted therapy; ICP; hemicraniectomy; seizures; prostacyclin; microdialysis; outcome; S100B; NSE; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi;

    Abstract : Severe Traumatic Brain Injury (sTBI) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity. At the Department of Neurosurgery Umeå University Hospital subjects with sTBI are treated with an intracranial pressure (ICP) guided therapy based on physiological principles, aiming to optimise the microcirculation of the brain so avoiding secondary brain injuries.

  5. 5. Oligodendrocyte pathology following Traumatic Brain Injury : Experimental and clinical studies

    Author : Johanna Flygt; Niklas Marklund; Fredrik Piehl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Traumatic brain injury; oligodendrocytes; oligodendrocyte progenitor cells; interleukin 1-β; central fluid percussion injury; Neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by traffic and fall accidents, sports-related injuries and violence commonly results in life-changing disabilities. Cognitive impairments following TBI may be due to disruption of axons, stretched by the acceleration/deceleration forces of the initial impact, and their surrounding myelin in neuronal networks.
