A skull fracture characterized by inward depression of a fragment or section of cranial bone, often compressing the underlying dura mater and brain. Depressed cranial fractures which feature open skin wounds that communicate with skull fragments are referred to as compound depressed skull fractures.
Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
Recurrent seizures causally related to CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Seizure onset may be immediate but is typically delayed for several days after the injury and may not occur for up to two years. The majority of seizures have a focal onset that correlates clinically with the site of brain injury. Cerebral cortex injuries caused by a penetrating foreign object (CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, PENETRATING) are more likely than closed head injuries (HEAD INJURIES, CLOSED) to be associated with epilepsy. Concussive convulsions are nonepileptic phenomena that occur immediately after head injury and are characterized by tonic and clonic movements. (From Rev Neurol 1998 Feb;26(150):256-261; Sports Med 1998 Feb;25(2):131-6)
Traumatic injuries involving the cranium and intracranial structures (i.e., BRAIN; CRANIAL NERVES; MENINGES; and other structures). Injuries may be classified by whether or not the skull is penetrated (i.e., penetrating vs. nonpenetrating) or whether there is an associated hemorrhage.
Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.
Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
A medical specialty concerned with the study of the structures, functions, and diseases of the nervous system.
Sense of awareness of self and of the environment.
Organic mental disorders in which there is impairment of the ability to maintain awareness of self and environment and to respond to environmental stimuli. Dysfunction of the cerebral hemispheres or brain stem RETICULAR FORMATION may result in this condition.
Loss of the ability to maintain awareness of self and environment combined with markedly reduced responsiveness to environmental stimuli. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp344-5)
Vegetative state refers to the neurocognitive status of individuals with severe brain damage, in whom physiologic functions (sleep-wake cycles, autonomic control, and breathing) persist, but awareness (including all cognitive function and emotion) is abolished.
A profound state of unconsciousness associated with depressed cerebral activity from which the individual cannot be aroused. Coma generally occurs when there is dysfunction or injury involving both cerebral hemispheres or the brain stem RETICULAR FORMATION.
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
Recording of electric currents developed in the brain by means of electrodes applied to the scalp, to the surface of the brain, or placed within the substance of the brain.
Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.
Examinations that evaluate functions of the pituitary gland.
A small, unpaired gland situated in the SELLA TURCICA. It is connected to the HYPOTHALAMUS by a short stalk which is called the INFUNDIBULUM.
The anterior glandular lobe of the pituitary gland, also known as the adenohypophysis. It secretes the ADENOHYPOPHYSEAL HORMONES that regulate vital functions such as GROWTH; METABOLISM; and REPRODUCTION.
Disorders involving either the ADENOHYPOPHYSIS or the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. These diseases usually manifest as hypersecretion or hyposecretion of PITUITARY HORMONES. Neoplastic pituitary masses can also cause compression of the OPTIC CHIASM and other adjacent structures.
Neoplasms which arise from or metastasize to the PITUITARY GLAND. The majority of pituitary neoplasms are adenomas, which are divided into non-secreting and secreting forms. Hormone producing forms are further classified by the type of hormone they secrete. Pituitary adenomas may also be characterized by their staining properties (see ADENOMA, BASOPHIL; ADENOMA, ACIDOPHIL; and ADENOMA, CHROMOPHOBE). Pituitary tumors may compress adjacent structures, including the HYPOTHALAMUS, several CRANIAL NERVES, and the OPTIC CHIASM. Chiasmal compression may result in bitemporal HEMIANOPSIA.
Subjective cutaneous sensations (e.g., cold, warmth, tingling, pressure, etc.) that are experienced spontaneously in the absence of stimulation.
The nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord, including the autonomic, cranial, and spinal nerves. Peripheral nerves contain non-neuronal cells and connective tissue as well as axons. The connective tissue layers include, from the outside to the inside, the epineurium, the perineurium, and the endoneurium.
Cellular uptake of extracellular materials within membrane-limited vacuoles or microvesicles. ENDOSOMES play a central role in endocytosis.
Injuries to the PERIPHERAL NERVES.
A scale that assesses the response to stimuli in patients with craniocerebral injuries. The parameters are eye opening, motor response, and verbal response.
A relatively common sequela of blunt head injury, characterized by a global disruption of axons throughout the brain. Associated clinical features may include NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE; DEMENTIA; and other disorders.
A game in which a round inflated ball is advanced by kicking or propelling with any part of the body except the hands or arms. The object of the game is to place the ball in opposite goals.
The killing of one person by another.
Injuries sustained from incidents in the course of work-related activities.
Small-arms weapons, including handguns, pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns, etc.
Disruption of structural continuity of the body as a result of the discharge of firearms.
A legal concept that an accused is not criminally responsible if, at the time of committing the act, the person was laboring under such a defect of reason from disease of the mind as not to know the nature and quality of the act done or if the act was known, to not have known that what was done was wrong. (From Black's Law Dictionary, 6th ed)
A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades.

Patients who talk and deteriorate: a new look at an old problem. (1/7)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: We sought to review established prognostic indicators applied to Asian population, and to identify new risk factors for deterioration in patients who talked and deteriorated after traumatic brain injury (TBI). This retrospective study used our prospectively maintained TBI database. From August 1999 to July 2001, 324 patients were admitted to the neurosurgical intensive care unit (ICU). Thirty-eight patients (11.8%) talked between injury and subsequent deterioration into coma. Independent outcome predictors were studied. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Fourteen patients had subdural haematomas, 9 extradural haematomas, 19 contusions/haematomas and 3 subarachnoid haemorrhages. 81.5% of the patients had mass lesions potentially requiring surgery. Twenty patients had good functional recovery at 6 months (Glasgow Outcome Score 4 and 5); 18 were dead or vegetative. Age, gender, type of intracranial lesion and presence of coagulopathy were significantly correlated with outcome. Intracranial haematomas continue to be most significant in patients who talk and deteriorate. Coagulopathy was the strongest prognostic predictor of poor outcome with fibrinolytic parameters being reliable prognostic markers of head injury. Early identification, continued monitoring and treatment of coagulopathy should be our new look at improving outcome of these patients.  (+info)

Recovery process of immediate prolonged posttraumatic coma following severe head injury without mass lesions. (2/7)

The recovery process of immediate posttraumatic coma was investigated in 24 patients with severe head injury. The correlation between poor outcome in the recovery process and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings was analyzed. MR imaging was performed within the first 7 days for all patients. The recovery process was classified into phase 1 for recovery to moderately disabled and phase 2 to good recovery (GR) according to the Glasgow Outcome Scale. The median of phase 1 was 21.0 days. Four patients did not recover to GR and had poor outcome. Twenty patients recovered to GR. Thirteen patients had short phase 2 of under 10 days and seven patients had long phase 2 of over 60 days. All patients had abnormal lesions on MR imaging considered to be diffuse axonal injury. The number of lesions ranged from two to 10, with a mean of five. Lesions in the dorsal upper brainstem were significantly associated with poor outcome (p < 0.05). The combination of focal lesions in the callosal splenium and dorsal upper brainstem was most common in patients with poor outcome. Patients with long phase 2 had significantly more lesions than patients with short phase 2.  (+info)

Search for clinical and neurophysiological prognostic patterns of brain coma outcomes in children. (3/7)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the possible predictive values of clinical examinations combined with the recordings of electroencephalography and brainstem auditory-evoked potentials in traumatic coma of pediatric patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 43 children in coma with severe acute head trauma were included in the study. They were investigated and treated in pediatric intensive care unit using standard evaluation and treatment protocol. Evaluation of coma was performed using Glasgow Coma Scale. Electroencephalography for 35 patients and brainstem auditory-evoked potentials for 24 patients were recorded. RESULTS: Glasgow coma scale statistic pool median was equal to 4 points as measured in presence of brain edema, meanwhile it was 6 as measured in absence of edema. In case of supratentorial damage, median duration of consciousness recovery was 10 days. In absence of above-mentioned supratentorial damage, recovery of the consciousness was earlier - median was 5 days. Determined duration of artificial lung ventilation was statistically significantly shorter for those who had edema (P=0.048). In 20 patients (57% of all cases), constant or alternating slow wave activity was observed during the first electroencephalographic recording. In other cases, "alpha coma" or low amplitude of arrhythmic activity and local slowing activity corresponding to brain damage seen on computerized tomography were recorded. For 24 patients, brainstem auditory-evoked potentials were recorded. In 9 cases, they were abnormal; in these cases, the consciousness of the patients recovered after 44 days or did not recover. CONCLUSIONS: Glasgow coma scale results alone may have limited prognostic value in absence of other objective neurophysiologic investigation data concerning the coma outcome in children. Prognosis may be worse if pathological brainstem auditory-evoked potentials correlate with pathological dynamic changes in electroencephalography and brain lesions, diagnosed during computerized tomography scan.  (+info)

DR ADIO: So hello, everyone. Today welcome to the fourth in the series of the webinar seminar NIPOSS, organizing with Cybersight. Today were going to be talking about a different topic. I would like to wish Nigeria, where I come from, a happy Independence Day. NIPOSS is the society of all pediatric ophthalmologists in Nigeria, who are committed to ensuring the overall eye health of the Nigerian child. So we are about at the 70 number, and were all in upper Africa, which happens to be the worlds second largest and the second most populous continent, after Asia. We have a population of 186 million, and 90 million of this number are under 18 years. So you can see its largely a pediatric population. We have about 37 pediatric ophthalmologists, which is still less than 10% of the 500 ophthalmologists in the country. So today, were going to do a presentation on abnormal head posture. A new look at an old topic. So Im introducing to you Dr. Lionel Kowal to do what he knows best, talk about ...

New look at relativity: Electrons cant exceed the speed of light -- thanks to light itself, says biologist: Any space with a temperature above absolute zero consists of photons. As a result of the Doppler effect, the moving electron experiences the photons crashing into the front of it as being blue-shifted, and the photons colliding with the back of it as being red-shifted. Since blue-shifted photons exert more momentum than red-shifted photons, the photons themselves exert a counterforce on the moving electron, just as the cytoplasm in a cell exerts a viscous force on the moving organelles. The viscous force that arises from the Doppler-shifted photons prevents electrons from exceeding the speed of light, according to Randy Wayne, associate professor of plant biology ...

CDC Analysis Provides New Look at Disproportionate Impact of HIV and Syphilis Among U.S. Gay and Bisexual Men A data analysis released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention underscores the disproportionate impact of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men in the United States. The data, presented at CDCs 2010 National STD Prevention Conference, finds that the rate of new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men (MSM) is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women. While CDC data have shown for several years that gay and bisexual men make up the majority of new HIV and new syphilis infections, CDC has estimated the rates of these diseases for the first time based on new estimates of the size of the U.S. population of MSM. While the heavy toll of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men has been long recognized, this analysis shows just how stark the health disparities are between this ...

I have wasted countless hours of my life online crying over beautiful items that Ill never be able to afford or fit into. It is like torture, I find the perfect piece, then I notice the price tag.

Adolescence is often described as a tumultuous time, where heightened reactivity and impulsivity lead to negative behaviors like substance abuse and unsafe sexual activity. Previous research has pointed to the immature adolescent brain as a major liability, but now, a unique study reveals that some brain changes associated with adolescence may not be driving teens towards risky behavior but may actually reflect a decrease in susceptibility to peer pressure. The findings, published by Cell Press in the March 10 issue of the journal Neuron, provide a more complete perspective of the neural systems associated with adolescent behavior.. Subcortical neural systems associated with emotional responses are thought to mature earlier than the higher cortical areas that regulate affective responses in adults, and they are often implicated in the impulsive and emotional behavior that is associated with adolescence. However, there is a lack of concrete evidence linking these behavioral changes with neural ...

Scientists at the US Department of Energys Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have performed first-of-a-kind, high-resolution examinations of cracks in stainless steel core components from commercial nuclear reactors, dispelling many of the traditionally held beliefs about how cracks develop and spread.. According to the DOE, it has been long held that cracks in nuclear reactor components are the result of alloy embrittlement or local changes to the water environment caused by radiation. With the use of analytical electron microscopy and a new approach to access buried corrosion interfaces for study, however, Larry Thomas and Steve Bruemmer have discovered that the crack advance is promoted by radiation-enhanced, corrosion-induced material changes ahead of the tip of the crack.. While cracking of metal components inside nuclear reactors has been a continuing problem over many years, the ability to directly evaluate cracking mechanisms has been limited. Most research has been performed ...
Hypertension is called a silent killer because there are no early symptoms and it can lead to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of morbidity worldwide. There is no cure, but several classes of medications target the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), a signaling pathway with paramount short and long-term influence over blood pressure. Renin is a hormone enzyme which controls RAS and leads to the generation of Ang II, a peptide that regulates blood pressure and electrolyte balance. RAS activity is tightly controlled to maintain homeostasis, so hypertension can be taken as a sign of RAS dysregulation due to the loss of inhibition or excessive stimulation. High sugar diets especially predispose individuals to a form of hypertension which is responsive to, or whose onset can be delayed by, RAS inhibition. Accordingly, we hypothesized that there must be a direct mechanism by which sugar metabolism causes pathological RAS activation. Since the kidney is a primary target of sugar and blood ...

How did researchers come to believe so firmly in the diet-heart hypothesis, which holds that eating foods high in cholesterol and saturated fat leads to heart disease? In the first half of the 20th century, experiments with rabbits and international comparative studies led to the belief that diets low in fat were good for heart health. In the 1950s and 1960s it became clear that not all fats were equal. Experiments showed that saturated fat increased and polyunsaturated fat decreased plasma cholesterol concentrations. Higher concentrations were associated with a greater risk of heart disease. It followed that polyunsaturated fats were good and saturated fat was bad for the heart. Effects on serum concentrations of low density lipoprotein and high density lipoprotein cholesterol were paramount in decisions on dietary guidelines.8 11 But if blood cholesterol values are not a reliable indicator of risk of cardiovascular disease, then a careful review of the evidence that underpins dietary ...

Winberg et al 1 present important new information on a story that began with the discovery of the lupus erythematosus (LE) cell phenomenon. As described in a truly landmark paper, Hargraves and colleagues established the existence of the LE cell phenomenon using bone marrow specimens from patients with SLE. The LE cell reflects the unique immune environment in SLE and is basically a cell nucleus that has been opsonised by an ANA and complement and is then engulfed by a neutrophil.2 The key players for this phenomenon (nucleus, ANA, complement, phagocyte) remain at the centre of lupus research today, a rare example of a paradigm that has barely shifted or wobbled during the course of many decades.. In the study of the LE cell, the nucleus has received much less attention than the other players which, after all, are usual blood components. In ordinary circumstances, the nucleus resides within the safe confines of the cell; with the exception of physiological enucleation during red blood cell ...

And the first step you can take towards a healthier liver is to re-think your alcohol consumption, says Dr Andrew Holt, a Consultant Hepatologist at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull.. Taking part in campaigns such as Dry January are a great way to start but I always urge people to use that as a stepping stone towards a healthier attitude to alcohol throughout the year, said Dr Holt.. The liver really is a remarkable organ with a fantastic capacity for rejuvenation - but people still manage to take it beyond the limit when it comes to alcohol intake!. In some circumstances, particularly in individuals who may be overweight or diabetic, the threshold for serious damage from alcohol is surprisingly low (as low as two bottles of wine per week) and continued harmful drinking can lead to liver damage that is beyond repair.. But because it is such a forgiving organ people do tend to take it for granted, Dr Holt explained.. Two or three days a week abstinence is an achievable target that ...

Since individual proteins are imaged one at a time, we can localize and count them, and then computationally assemble the locations of all proteins into a composite, high-precision image, said Liphardt. With other technologies, we have to choose between observing large clusters or observing single proteins. With PALM, we can examine a cell and see single proteins, protein dimers, and so forth, all the way up to large clusters containing thousands of proteins. This enables us to see the relative organization of individual proteins within clusters and at the same time see how clusters are arranged with respect to one-another ...

The present study uses highly purified T cells, Foxp3-GFP reporter mice, and analyses at the cellular and molecular level to reexamine the paradigm of local immune privilege in the eye. Our current data considerably extend what has been known about the suppressive ability of ocular fluids and provide new information on the likely fate of a T cell that enters the eye and undergoes TCR ligation in the ocular environment. The entire differentiation program for Th1 as well as for Th17 was shut down and diverted toward de novo Foxp3+ Treg induction. Interestingly, although phosphorylation of STAT1 and its target, the Th1 lineage-specific transcription factor T-bet, were both inhibited, phosphorylation of STAT3, which is triggered by IL-6R ligation and induces the Th17 lineage-specific transcription factor RORγt (29), was not affected, and neither was expression of IL-6Rα. This suggests that inhibition of RORγt by AH was not through the IL-6-induced STAT3 pathway. Because Foxp3 was shown to bind to ...

In the glucagon stimulation test (GST), the occurrence of peak growth hormone (GH) levels at typical times is an indication of normal secretion. This has not been studied for the clonidine stimulation test (CST). The 120-minute time is rarely the peak, and previous reports suggest it can be omitted. This study aimed to evaluate the meaning and utility of peak time in the CST and the significance of shortening the test. CSTs performed on 250 consecutive subjects in a single center were evaluated for results (GH sufficient or deficient) and result of confirmatory GST with respect to the peak time of the CST. Peak GH occurred typically at 30, 60, and 90 minutes (91.6% of tests, versus 60% expected) (P
