    Abstract : There is limited knowledge of cognitive outcome extending beyond 5 years after childhood traumatic brain injury, CTBI. The main objectives of this thesis were to investigate cognitive outcome at 6-14 years after CTBI, and to evaluate if advancements in the neurosurgical care, starting 1992, did influence long-term outcome and early epidemiology.

    Abstract : Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating disease with mean age of 59 years. SAH accounts for 5% of all stroke and more than one quarter of potential life years lost through stroke. With the advanced neurosurgical methods of today two thirds of the patients survive.

  3. 3. Outcome after modern neurosurgical care and formalised rehabilitation following severe brain injury

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ann Sörbo; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; outcome; severe brain injury; life satisfaction; early formalised rehabilitation; change over time; decompressive craniectomy; long-term follow-up;

    Abstract : Aims: The overall aims were to evaluate the results of the treatment concepts for severe brain injury including decompressive craniectomy (DC), early rehabilitation and long-term follow-up, primarily according to the psychosocial consequences of the brain damage and life satisfaction. The first study was a cross-sectional study to assess and compare the consequences for outcome for two groups with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) or subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH), one group that received early, long-term formalised rehabilitation and the other that received late or no formalised rehabilitation.

  4. 4. Surgically Treated Intracerebral Haemorrhage Pathophysiology and Clinical Aspects

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Lovisa Tobieson; Niklas Marklund; Bijar Ghafouri; Sandro Rossitti; Peter Zsigmond; Jan Hillman; Mikael Svensson; [2019]

    Abstract : Mortality and morbidity of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is excessively high, and the case fatality rate has not improved in the last decades. Although surgery for ICH can be life-saving, no positive effect on functional outcome has been found in large cohorts of ICH patients. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human spinal cord transplantation : experimental and clinical application

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Occupational Therapy and Elderly Care Research (NEUROTEC)

    Author : Elisabet Åkesson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]

    Abstract : The main objectives of this Thesis was to further characterize the in situ human first trimester spinal cord tissue and to evaluate the survival, integration and possible neurological effects of solid human embryonic spinal cord grafts transplanted to cavities in the spinal cord of rat and man. Human-specific neurofilament and Thy-1 positive fibers were observed already at 5 weeks of gestation in the in situ human spinal cord, the earliest stage at which donor tissue was used for intraspinal transplantation.
