Non-fatal injuries sustained by seatbelt wearers: a comparative study. (1/1137)

The injuries sustained by 969 drivers and front-seat passengers in road-traffic accidents were studied. Altogether 196 (20-2%) of the drivers and passengers were wearing seat belts and 773 (79-8%) were not. The injuries among the two groups differed greatly in both severity and distribution. A total of 54 (27-6%) of the seatbelt wearers sustained one or more fractures compared with 300 (38-8%) of the non-wearers, and 18 (9-2%) of the seatbelt wearers were severely injured compared with 300 (38-8%) of the non-wearers. Soft-tissue injuries to the face were sustained by only 29 (14-8%) of the seatbelt wearers compared with 425 (55%) of the non-wearers. Since wearing seatbelts may become compulsory, the type and pattern of injuries to be expected in wearers should be appreciated.  (+info)

Evaluating cost-effectiveness of diagnostic equipment: the brain scanner case. (2/1137)

An approach to evaluating the cost-effectiveness of high-technology diagnostic equipment has been devised, using the introduction of computerised axial tomography (CAT) as a model. With the advent of CAT scanning, angiography and air encephalography have a reduced, though important, role in investigating intracranial disease, and the efficient use of conventional equipment requires the centralisation of neuroradiological services, which would result in major cash savings. In contrast, the pattern of demand for CAT scanning, in addition to the acknowledged clinical efficiency of the scanner and its unique role in the head-injured patient, ephasies the need for improved access to scanners. In the interest of the patients the pattern of service must change.  (+info)

Post-traumatic epilepsy: its complications and impact on occupational rehabilitation--an epidemiological study from India. (3/1137)

The objective of this study was to assess the prevalence of seizure disorder, neuropsychiatric disorders and reproductive outcome of employees with post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) and their effect on occupational rehabilitation. A case-comparison group study design was used to compare 30 subjects with PTE with (1) 129 non-PTE and (2) 55 non-PTE matched control employees. The 55 non-PTE matched controls were selected from the 129 non-PTE employees on the basis of age, age at onset of seizure, age at marriage and length of employment. The PTE group had a lower fertility rate than the controls and more neuropsychiatric disorders and seizure disability. PTE employees were more occupationally rehabilitated than non-PTE employees (p = 0.033). Of the 30 PTE subjects, thirteen who were rehabilitated by placement had more seizure disability (p = 0.007) and a higher fertility rate (p = 0.018). High prevalence of seizure disability and increased fertility rate among the placed PTE employees suggested that there might be some association between severity of seizures and increased production of live offspring and work placement. Work suitability or placement should not be judged on clinical assessment only but psychosocial seizure assessment, disability evaluation and other psychometric tests which are of equal importance.  (+info)

Cognitive recovery after severe head injury. 3. WAIS verbal and performance IQs as a function of post-traumatic amnesia duration and time from injury. (4/1137)

Two studies are reported are reported in which severely head-injured patients were followed up and Verbal (VIQ) and Performance (PIQ) IQs obtained on the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale at four intervals after injury. In the first study 51 patients were systematically followed, and results were based upon serial testing. In the second study results were based on the earliest data available from an additional 98 patients who had not been followed so systematically, in order to introduce a control for the effects of practice. Patients in both studies were categorised into four groups of the severity of head injury based upon duration of post-traumatic amnesia (PTA). In both studies, VIQ level was found to be related to PTA duration at three months after injury, while PIQ was related to PTA duration at both three and six months. No such relationships were found at 12 and 30 months after injury. Results are discussed in the context of previous studies relating the outcome of head injury to the duration of PTA.  (+info)

Post-traumatic pituitary apoplexy--two case reports. (5/1137)

A 60-year-old female and a 66-year-old male presented with post-traumatic pituitary apoplexy associated with clinically asymptomatic pituitary macroadenoma manifesting as severe visual disturbance that had not developed immediately after the head injury. Skull radiography showed a unilateral linear occipital fracture. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed pituitary tumor with dumbbell-shaped suprasellar extension and fresh intratumoral hemorrhage. Transsphenoidal surgery was performed in the first patient, and the visual disturbance subsided. Decompressive craniectomy was performed in the second patient to treat brain contusion and part of the tumor was removed to decompress the optic nerves. The mechanism of post-traumatic pituitary apoplexy may occur as follows. The intrasellar part of the tumor is fixed by the bony structure forming the sella, and the suprasellar part is free to move, so a rotational force acting on the occipital region on one side will create a shearing strain between the intra- and suprasellar part of the tumor, resulting in pituitary apoplexy. Recovery of visual function, no matter how severely impaired, can be expected if an emergency operation is performed to decompress the optic nerves. Transsphenoidal surgery is the most advantageous procedure, as even partial removal of the tumor may be adequate to decompress the optic nerves in the acute stage. Staged transsphenoidal surgery is indicated to achieve total removal later.  (+info)

Aphasic disorder in patients with closed head injury. (6/1137)

Quantitative assessment of 50 patients with closed head injury disclosed that anomic errors and word finding difficulty were prominent sequelae as nearly half of the series had defective scores on tests of naming and/or word association. Aphasic disturbance was associated with severity of brain injury as reflected by prolonged coma and injury of the brain stem.  (+info)

An audit of distribution and use of guidelines for management of head injury. (7/1137)

Ensuring effective distribution of guidelines is an important step towards their implementation. To examine the effectiveness of dissemination of a guidelines card on management of head injury and determine its usefulness to senior house officers (SHOs), a questionnaire survey was performed in May 1990, after distribution of the cards in induction packs for new doctors and at postgraduate lectures and displaying the guidelines in accident and emergency departments and wards. A further survey, in March 1992, assessed the impact of modifying the distribution. All (175) SHOs working in general surgery, accident and emergency medicine, orthopaedics, and neurosciences on 1 February 1990 in 19 hospitals including two neurosurgical units in Northern region were sent self completion questionnaires about awareness, receipt, use, and perceived usefulness of the guidelines. 131 of 163(80%) SHOs in post responded (median response from hospitals 83% (range 50%-100%)). Over three quarters (103, 79%) of SHOs were aware of the guidelines and 82(63%) had ever possessed a guidelines card. Only 36(44%) acquired the card in the induction pack. 92%(98/107) found them useful and 81% (89/110) referred to them to some extent. Owning and carrying the card and referring to guidelines were associated with departmental encouragement to use the guidelines. Increasing the displays of guidelines in wards and departments and the supply of cards to consultants in accident and emergency medicine as a result of this survey did not increase the number of SHOs who received cards (52/83, 63%), but more (71/83, 86%) were aware of the guidelines. The guidelines were welcomed by SHOs and used in treating patients with head injury, but their distribution requires improvement. Increased use of the guidelines may be achieved by introducing other distribution methods and as a result of encouragement by senior staff.  (+info)

Effect of guidelines on management of head injury on record keeping and decision making in accident and emergency departments. (8/1137)

OBJECTIVE: To compare record keeping and decision making in accident and emergency departments before and after distribution of guidelines on head injury management as indices of implementation. DESIGN: Before (1987) and after (1990) study of accident and emergency medical records. SETTING: Two accident and emergency departments in England. PATIENTS: 1144 adult patients with head injury in department 1 (533 in 1987, 613 in 1990) and 734 in department 2 (370, 364 respectively). MAIN MEASURES: Recording of relevant symptoms and signs as determined in the guidelines; presence of, indications for, and rates and appropriateness of skull x ray examination and admission. RESULTS: The median number of guidelines variables recorded for all study periods ranged from 7 to 9 out of a possible maximum of 27. For key decision making variables the presence or absence of penetrating injury was least likely to be recorded (< or = 1%) and that of loss of consciousness most likely (> or = 75%). Altogether, the proportion of patients receiving skull x ray examination or admitted varied from 25%-60% and 7%-23% respectively; overall, 69% (1280/1856) and 64% (1177/1851) of patients were managed appropriately. However, no consistent change occurred in the departments between the study periods. For instance, in department 1 the proportion of appropriate x ray examinations rose significantly after distribution of the guidelines (from 61% (202/330) to 73% (305/417)) and appropriate decisions on whether to x ray or not also rose (from 65% (340/522) to 72% (435/608)). There was no significant change in department 2, although the proportion of appropriate admissions fell (from 33% (55/166) to 15% (19/130)). CONCLUSIONS: Recording practice and decision making were variable and had not consistently improved after dissemination of the guidelines. Strategies are required to ensure effective implementation of guidelines.  (+info)

If you have had a severe head injury and theres a chance you may have a brain injury, youll have a CT scan to assess the seriousness of the injury.. The Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) is often used to assess head injuries. This is a scale from 3 to 15 that identifies how serious your head injury is, based on your symptoms and whether the brain has been damaged (with 3 being most severe and 15 the least severe).. A GCS score of 13 or above would indicate a minor head injury. A score of 9 to 12 would be a moderate head injury. If a person has a severe head injury, theyll have a score of 8 or less.. Some people with significant head injuries have a high GCS score initially, but their score decreases when theyre reassessed at a later stage.. If you have a severe head injury, youll be closely monitored and frequently reassessed to check your condition.. Find out how severe head injuries are diagnosed. ...

Minor head injuries are a common presenting complaint in the pediatric emergency department. Skull x-rays are a useful tool in the evaluation of paediatric patients with a history of minor head trauma. However, there exists ongoing controversy regarding the ideal number of views that should be obtained in a skull series. This study aims to determine if there is a significant difference in the diagnostic accuracy of skull x-rays in the diagnosis of fracture in paediatric minor head trauma patients when a 2-film series as opposed to a 4-film series is provided to participating pediatric emergency physicians.. This will be a prospective, crossover experimental study evaluating the equivalency in sensitivity and specificity of a 2-film series versus a 4-film series in the diagnosis of skull fracture associated with minor head injuries in children.. The study will involve 10 pediatric emergency physicians who will evaluate two modules of 100 series of radiography.. In order to do so, he or she will ...
The emotional characteristics of head injury patients referred for neuropsychological testing were examined as a function of the time since injury. Patients referred more than 6 months from injury were more emotionally distressed on the MMPI and Katz Adjustment Scale (relatives form) compared to those tested 6 months or earlier. The more chronic head trauma patients were more anxious and depressed, more confused in their thinking, and more socially withdrawn compared to the acute patient group. These differences in emotional functioning appeared to be independent of level of neuropsychological impairment and the initial length of coma. Premorbid personality and increased awareness of impaired functioning with the passage of time are discussed as possible mediators of enhanced emotional distress in some chronic head injury patients.. ...
Objective: To determine the statistical characteristics of blood pressure (BP) readings from a large number of head-injured patients.. Methods: The BrainIT group has collected high time-resolution physiological and clinical data from head-injured patients who require intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring. The statistical features of this dataset of BP measurements with time resolution of 1 min from 200 patients is examined. The distributions of BP measurements and their relationship with simultaneous ICP measurements are described.. Results: The distributions of mean, systolic and diastolic readings are close to normal with modest skewing towards higher values. There is a trend towards an increase in blood pressure with advancing age, but this is not significant. Simultaneous blood pressure and ICP values suggest a triphasic relationship with a BP rising at 0.28 mm Hg/mm Hg of ICP, for ICP up to 32 mm Hg, and 0.9 mm Hg/mm Hg of ICP for ICP from 33 to 55 mm Hg, and falling sharply with rising ...

N2 - Head injury is an important cause of mortality worldwide as the head is the most vulnerable part of the body involved in fatal road traffic accidents. The present study was undertaken on 682 victims of road traffic accidents who died due to injuries sustained to the head, which were autopsied at District Wenlock Hospital, Mangalore over a period of 5 years between January 1999 and December 2003. Most of the accidents had taken place during the afternoon and evening hours (1400-2200h). There was a marked male preponderance (84.6%). The most vulnerable age group was found to be between 21 and 30 years. Two wheeler occupants were most commonly involved. Skull fractures were present in 88.88% of the cases. Fractures of the vault were found in 88%, base of the skull in 35.97% and a combination of both in 35% of cases. In ...
A retrospective analysis conducted by Li et al11 included 144 anticoagulated patients attending the ED with head injury. Of these patients, 134 (93%) were described as receiving their injury from a simple fall. This study included patients taking warfarin who had incurred head injury and subsequently had CT head scan. Patients excluded were those with new neurology, altered mentation or who were deemed high or moderate risk. This group found the incidence of intracranial haemorrhage in their study to be 6.2% (9/144), with six parenchymal haemorrhages, two subdural haematomas and a single subarachnoid haemorrhage being described. The authors of this study concluded that significant numbers of warfarinised patients develop intracranial pathology with even minor head injury. The authors postulate that this subset of patients should be considered at moderate risk and go on to recommend intracranial imaging for all warfarinised head injury patients during emergency assessment, regardless of ...
A Rare Fatal Head Injury and Crush Injury to Leg by an Improperly Assembled Chaff Cutter - a farm Machinery-Related Injury in North-West India: a Case Report
A rare case is described of acute disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) following isolated mild head injury with acute subdural haematoma, coagulopathy onset preceding craniotomy. Surgical treatment of the cause followed by swift diagnosis and treatment soon after surgery enabled a good outcome. Post-operative recollection of subdural and extadural blood was treated by further surgery. DIC following isolated mild head injury without axonal damage is rare, but fatal if missed. Thrombocytopaenia in head injured patients should be investigated expediently. Post-operative interim imaging (if not standard practice) should also be considered to exclude haemorrhagic recollection requiring further surgery.
Paediatric head injury is common. Our numbers estimates an annual incidence of 3378 head injuries/100 000, which is similar to previously published figures.8 Past studies have shown a significant male predominance and almost half those presenting to A&E departments are less than 5 years old.2, 8, 9 Our population demonstrated similar age and sex demographics. Younger children may present more readily because of parental anxiety rather than them having a higher incidence of head injury. Studies from the United States tend to describe more severe head injuries reflecting issues of access to hospital care.1, 2 In Edinburgh most patients have relatively easy access to free health care and we subsequently see a wide spectrum of head injuries, including children who are possibly managed by primary care facilities elsewhere.. Vomiting occurred in 15.8% of our analysed population, an incidence similar to previously published figures of 10-17%.2, 4, 10 Studies that exclude the most minor injuries quote ...

Objective : To investigate the cases of intracranial abnormal brain MRI findings even in the negative brain CT scan after mild head injury. Methods : During a 2-year period (January 2009-December 2010), we prospectively evaluated both brain CT and brain MRI of 180 patients with mild head injury. Patients were classified into two groups according to presence or absence of abnormal brain MRI finding even in the negative brain CT scan after mild head injury. Two neurosurgeons and one neuroradiologist validated the images from both brain CT scan and brain MRI double blindly. Results : Intracranial injury with negative brain CT scan after mild head injury occurred in 18 patients (10.0%). Headache (51.7%) without neurologic signs was the most common symptom. Locations of intracranial lesions showing abnormal brain MRI were as follows; temporal base (n=8), frontal pole (n=5), falx cerebri (n=2), basal ganglia (n=1), tentorium (n=1), and sylvian fissure (n=1). Intracranial injury was common in patients ...
WEDNESDAY, July 5, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- A severe head injury, especially during middle age, could dramatically boost the risk for developing dementia later in life, new research from Finland suggests.. The investigation tracked dementia risk among people who had suffered a traumatic brain injury [TBI] at 65 or younger. Ultimately, the researchers determined that not only did the risk go up for those who had a TBI, but the worse the initial head injury, the greater the risk of dementia.. The study showed that 3.5 percent of persons with moderate-to-severe TBI [were] diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease [such as dementia] later in life, said study lead author Dr. Rahul Raj. Hes an associate professor of experimental neurosurgery at Helsinki University Hospital.. This is substantially higher compared to age-matched peers with no history of brain injury, he noted.. By comparison, only 1.6 percent of persons with mild TBI were diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease, Raj added, ...

Ischemia of the basal ganglia as an immediate consequence of minor head injury in children is rare (| 2% of all ischemic stroke in childhood) and is due to vasospasm of the lenticulostriate arteries. The clinical history of these lesions is particularly favourable because they are usually small, and also because the facial-brachial-crural hemiparesis typical of this pathology usually regresses after a period ranging from several weeks to several months, despite the persistence of an ischemic area on MRI. This is due to the well known neuronal plasticity of the CNS, in particular, of the primary motor cortex. The most effective therapeutic approach appears to be the conservative one, although the best treatment regimen is still not well defined. Young patients should be closely monitored and treated conservatively with osmotic diuretics to reduce perilesional edema. At the same time, however, it is very important to exclude, by means of instrumental and laboratory studies, conditions that could favour

The use of CT scan in minor head injuries is a difficult subject. Another reason why calling us first when your child has a minor head injury is the way to go.. Nigrovic said many children show up in ERs with minor head trauma, but very few have significant traumatic brain injuries, identified as a condition resulting in death, brain surgery, use of oxygen tubes for more than 24 hours, or hospital admission for more than two days. She said monitoring symptoms is an effective strategy to reduce CT scans for children considered in the low- to intermediate-risk category.. We use CT scans for high-risk cases because we dont want to miss a brain injury, said Nigrovic. But if a 3-year-old girl with a headache or vomiting can stay in the ER and be monitored, and if after four hours the symptoms are gone, thats great. She can go home.. Childs head injury doesnt always need CT scan. ...

We dont know what to do. My dad is 72 years old--VERY healthy, but fell from a ladder 10 days ago and has many broken ribs, still on ventilator, moderate head injury (hes starting to wake up and respond to commands), and C2 & T6 fractures (probably no cord involvement) and an exploded T12/L1 (almost certain cord involvement).... He has a right shoulder (scapula) fracture and for some unknown reason, is not moving his right arm much. He seems to wince to pain in his upper legs, but no leg
The accident caused Mack to have severe traumatic head injury, among other serious injuries. Severe traumatic head injury occurs when there is direct damage or the threat of damage to the brain. An example of direct damage to the brain would be a gunshot wound. A threat of damage would be a severe contusion which may result in a hemotoma or increased intracranial pressure. The right frontal lobe (sub-dural) of Macks brain was injured causing hemotoma and increased intracranial pressure. This is why they placed drain tubes in his head at the onset. The most recent CAT scan shows that the brain swelling has gone down, which is an improvement. The doctor said that the drain tubes in his head will most likely be removed today since they have done their job. However, there are still scattered patches of blood and fluid in the brain. The doctor stated that there has been some cellular death of brain cells due to low blood pressure and the brain being without oxygen for a period of time right after ...

3Gaziosmanpa a University, School of Medicine, Department of Biostatistics, Tokat, Turkey DOI : 10.5137/1019-5149.JTN.12668-14.3 AIM: Because of the need for effective method to determine the severity of head trauma, the importance of biomarkers is recognized recently. This study aims to analyze the values of sera levels of some biomarkers and the relation with their tissue levels in acute head injury.. MATERIAL and METHODS: In this study, rats were divided into three groups (mild head trauma, severe head trauma and control group). All rats were anaesthetized. Weightdrop method was used as trauma method. Blood samples were obtained five minutes after trauma when the acute effects of trauma occurred. Then whole brains of rats were excised. Levels of biomarkers were investigated in the sera samples and homogenized brain tissues biochemically.. RESULTS: Significant differences in the sera GFAP (p=0.015) and insulin (p=0.011) levels were observed. Very significant difference in the sera nNOS level ...
The evidence from observational epidemiologic studies provide some support for a harmful effect of head injuries, with risk especially elevated among those whose head injuries occur later in life or are more severe. However, few prospective studies have been conducted on head injury and AD, and they have significant methodological limitations. More importantly, the diagnosis of dementia in all prior studies has been based on clinical features rather than modern biomarker assays to identify the dementia subtype, and there have been no studies where the clinical diagnosis of AD was confirmed in pathologic studies. Thus, while head injury likely increases the risk of developing dementia, epidemiologic evidence linking head injury to AD dementia is less clear. There is much greater support for moderate to severe head injury in total dementia, and some support for mild head injury with loss of consciousness and total dementia. Of course, as there are many other harmful effects from head injury, there ...
The influence of vehicle deformation on the risks of head injury for the drivers involved in frontal crashes is studied using real world crash data. There are three types of vehicle damage distribution considered in this paper, namely, wide distribution, moderate offset, and small offset. The adjusted odds ratios (OR) along with 95% confidence intervals (CI) for the head injuries are estimated by logistic regression, controlling for a wide variety of confounders. Results show that occupants head injuries are highly related to damage distribution.

Authors: Rachel Evans, Gordon Fuller, Tom Roberts, Dan Horner, Sue Mason / Codes: CC20, HAP29 / Published: 28/08/2018. Introduction. There are head injuries and head injuries in emergency medicine. A head injury on anticoagulation has long been thought to be the latter. But is it? We have worried for a long time about any head injury on warfarin, and a variety of management pathways have been introduced alongside bespoke NICE guidelines suggesting imaging for all. However, not all anticoagulants are cut from the same cloth. The Direct Oral Anticoagulant agents in particular have recently shown an improved mortality profile following intracranial bleeding, when compared to traditional agents 1. We still lack evidence as to how these new drugs affect the risk associated with a minor head injury. The increasing use of DOACs, and the increasing age of the population using them, make this a pressing issue.. Head injury is a common reason for attending the emergency department, responsible for up to ...
People who have experienced a head injury can be subject to various symptoms. Some symptoms can be mild, while others can be very serious. Symptoms may occur immediately after the injury, while others occur after some time has passed. Symptoms can last briefly. Some of the less serious symptoms of head injuries include mild headaches, nausea, and brief loss consciousness. Others, including seizures, are much more serious and can last for days, weeks, and even years in some cases. Head trauma victims are 12 times more likely than people who have not suffered from head injuries to have seizures. Head injuries occur all the time. People who have acute intracranial hematomas can also have a high rate of epilepsy. The severity of the head injury is typically reflected in the severity of the symptoms that follow. Seizures are considered to be more serious than most symptoms relating to head injuries. Seizures do occur in people who have never had a head injury, but people who have experienced a head ...
Clinical characteristics can reliably identify patients who are unlikely to have intracranial injuries and who do not require CT imaging.
Very serious head wounds can result in spinal injuries, breathing problems, a fractured skull or bleeding in and around the brain and can sometimes be fatal. Most serious head injuries on the slopes are caused by collisions with other skiers or static objects such as rocks, pylons or trees. Skiers can reach speeds of 40mph even on fairly moderate slopes, so the force of the impact will be high. Colliding with static objects tends to cause more damage than colliding with other skiers and most fatal head wounds sustained during skiing are caused by colliding with trees. ...
This interview was inspired by a question from KUOW listener Patricia Boiko.. Has the rising popularity of bike sharing led to more head injuries? Rivara: We recently looked at about 80 people who were treated for bike injuries at Harborview Medical Center. We found that of those 80, only three were bike-share related.. Why do you think that is?. First of all, I dont want to leave your listeners with the idea that they shouldnt wear helmets. Helmets prevent 85 percent of head injuries.. But with bike shares, its a combination of factors. I think the bikes are a bit clunky, and theyre slower than the typical 18-speed bike that most of us have at home. And I think the people riding them dont want to go fast.. Is that reassuring to you in some way?. Well, there arent that many people who are being injured on bikes to begin with. So it is reassuring that theres not an increased number of head injuries.. But were still in the early stages of bike sharing. I think were going to see more and ...

N2 - Background: The purpose of this study was to consider the mechanism of isolated oculomotor nerve palsy after minor head trauma. Case Description: We report a rare case of delayed and isolated oculomotor nerve palsy following minor head trauma. A 19-year-old boy complained of double vision 1 day after a minor head trauma. Neuro-ophthalmic examination showed isolated left oculomotor nerve palsy. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging examination revealed no abnormal findings and steroid therapy was administered for a week. Three months after the injury, the ptosis and extraocular movements had fully resolved, although the pupillary light reflex was still abnormal. Conclusions: Delayed and isolated oculomotor nerve palsy may be caused by an injury at the point where the oculomotor nerve ...

Since 1994 in Canada the rate of bicycling injuries, including those to the head, has decreased among young people. In six provinces where helmet legislation was implemented, we observed a steep decline in the rate of hospital admissions for young people with cycling related head injuries (54% reduction) compared with provinces and territories without legislation (33% reduction). In adults over this same period we observed a 26% reduction in the rate of admissions for head injuries in provinces that implemented helmet legislation, compared with no reduction in provinces without legislation. While these results superficially suggest an important effect of legislation, after taking baseline trends into consideration we were unable to show an independent effect of helmet legislation on the rate of head injuries per hospital admission for a cycling related injury one year after the implementation of legislation, either overall or according to the age group of cyclists targeted by the ...
By Richard H. Adler, Attorney at Law. Over 1.4 million individuals sustain traumatic brain injuries each year in the United States. Between 400,000 and 500,000 of these head injuries are severe enough to require hospitalization annually. The financial cost of the diagnostic and rehabilitative/medical programs for traumatic head injury is estimated to be 3.9 billion dollars per year. The cost to society is far greater when one considers how traumatic head injuries may prevent individuals from achieving their full potential and contributing to society, while disrupting the lives of their family and friends.. Head injuries are generally classified as open or closed. An open head injury is one in which damage to the brain is caused by a fracture or penetrating wound. In a penetrating head injury, the dural covering of the brain has been breached by an object, such as a bullet or a piece of fractured skull. In such cases, damage is more likely to be focal -that is, the symptoms (such as ...
Also known as shaken baby syndrome, abusive head trauma (AHT) is a form of inflicted traumatic brain injury, which can be caused by direct blows to the head, dropping or throwing a child, or shaking a child vigrously.
Objective: Cranial computed tomography (CCT) scans are frequently obtained in the evaluation of patients with mild head trauma. These scans may detect unexpected incidental findings. Advances in neuroimaging and the increase in human population, has led to increased identification of patients with incidental intracranial findings on CCT. Since incidental lesions do not usually cause any pathology, treatment is not needed. However, in some cases, they provide an early diagnosis of the pathology that may occur in the future. In this study, it is aimed to create awareness for incidental brain findings detected on CCT after mild head trauma in emergency departments.. Material and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed incidental findings on routine brain computed tomography in patients with mild head trauma who admitted between June 2012 2018 in the emergency department. The age, sex, backgrounds and anatomic localization of the lesion were evaluated. Patients without any deficits were included in the ...

When presented with a child with head injury it is important for doctors to determine whether there is any evidence that a brain or other intracranial injury is present or is likely to have occurred.. The mechanism of injury is important in determining the probability of the presence or absence of significant head injury. As detailed earlier, road traffic accidents and falls from a height are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Similarly, being hit by a solid object with a high velocity, particularly golf clubs and stones, must be taken seriously. The large amount of energy imparted over a small area considerably increases the chance of skull fracture and underlying local brain injury. Often these fractures are depressed. Similarly, potential penetrating injuries, such as those sustained if a child is hit with a dart, are easy to underestimate. Although the external evidence of injury can often be minimal in these situations, the potential for underlying intracranial problems is ...
Non-Accidental Head Injury describes an injury to a childs brain that is unexplained. This is caused by the moving of the brain inside of the skull.
Non-accidental head injury (NAHI), also termed the shaken baby syndrome, is a major cause of death and severe neurological dysfunction in children under three years of age, but it is debated whether shaking alone is sufficient to produce brain injury and mortality or whether an additional head impact is required. In an attempt to resolve this question, we used a lamb model of NAHI since these animals have a relatively large gyrencephalic brain and weak neck muscles resembling those of a human infant. Three anaesthetised lambs of lower body weight than others in the experimental group died unexpectedly after being shaken, proving that shaking alone can be lethal. In these lambs, axonal injury, neuronal reaction and albumin extravasation were widely distributed in the hemispheric white matter, brainstem and at the craniocervical junction, and of much greater magnitude than in higher body weight lambs which did not die. Moreover, in the eyes of these shaken lambs, there was damage to retinal ...

The Confidential Enquiry provides a detailed description of the cause, pattern and severity of childhood head injuries in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It confirms that the majority of children had a minor head injury and were admitted for 24 h or less. One in 10 children had an intracranial injury or skull fracture. The mortality rate was 1 in 250, predominantly among victims of MVAs or abusive head trauma.. The proportion of children with minor head injury remains similar to previous studies described in a systematic review which gave a range of 76-92%.20 This has changed little over the past 25 years2 ,4 and represents a significant workload for health services. It is increasingly recognised that children with mild traumatic brain injury can have cognitive impairment or post-concussion syndrome21 ,22 and must be carefully assessed and given appropriate post-head-injury advice to identify and minimise sequelae.23. The peak prevalence was in children younger than a year, which differed ...
WEDNESDAY, Sept. 26, 2018 (HealthDay News) - Use of a decision aid can improve parent knowledge for children with minor head injury at intermediate risk of clinically important traumatic brain injury (ciTBI), according to a study published online Sept. 21 in JAMA Network Open.. Erik P. Hess, M.D., from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and colleagues compared a decision aid with usual care in parents of children at intermediate risk for ciTBI. A total of 172 clinicians caring for 971 children with minor head trauma were randomized to shared decision-making facilitated by the Head CT Choice decision aid or usual care (493 and 478, respectively).. The researchers found that, compared with usual care, parents in the decision aid arm had greater knowledge (mean questions correct, 6.2 versus 5.3), exhibited less decisional conflict (mean decisional conflict score, 14.8 versus 19.2), and were more involved in computed tomography decision-making (observing patient involvement score: mean, 25.0 ...

After Julio Rafael Parucho suffered a serious head injury a year ago, doctors removed a quarter of his brain. But because of a shortage of doctors, Julio, 32, has had to wait a year for a follow-up operation. The economic crisis in Venezuela, where Julio lives, has exploded into a public health emergency. Luis Razetti Hospital, where @meridithkohut photographed Julio, is a battlefield clinic in a country where there is no war. Even among Venezuelas failing hospitals, Luis Razetti has become one of the most notorious. For the past 2 and a half months, the hospital hasnt had a way to print X-rays, so patients must use a smartphone to take a picture of their scans. Meanwhile, the pharmacy has bare shelves. When patients need treatment, doctors give relatives a list of medicines, solutions and other items to track down from black-market sellers. Visit the link in our profile to read more.

It is estimated that 95% of severe intracranial injuries and 64% of all head injuries in children 1 year of age or younger are caused by violence inflicted by parents or caretakers. Abusive head trauma (AHT) is a spectrum, ranging from mild injury from sub-lethal abuse that can cause lethargy, irritability, poor feeding, and/or vomiting occurring for days or weeks, to the most severe injury leading to coma and/or death. The great tragedy is that AHT, and especially shaken baby syndrome, is thought to be somewhat preventable through in-hospital and aftercare parent education programs. This course will outline the identification and treatment of various forms of pediatric AHT. In addition, recommendations for identifying and reporting abuse are given.

Children seen in the emergency department with a recent history of minor blunt head trauma who are found to have a normal computed tomography (CT) scans do not require hospitalization for further observation, according to a large, national multi-center study published online today in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.. Each year in the United States, blunt head trauma in children results in approximately 3,000 deaths, 50,000 hospitalizations, and 650,000 emergency department (ED) visits. Trauma of all kind is a leading cause of death in children older than 1 year. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) accounts for more than 70% of fatal childhood injuries. Children often are admitted to the hospital for additional observation after blunt head trauma to allow frequent neurologic examinations. However, studies in adults have found that neurological problems following minor blunt head trauma are rare and that hospitalization after a normal cranial CT scan is unnecessary..

An electrode device is disclosed comprising a deformable envelope, further comprising recording electrodes and a pressure recording port. The device allows for monitoring of brain retraction pressure and local cortical electrical activity including DC potential, as well as redistribution of the force applied during retraction and cushioning of the rigid edges of the brain retractor, thereby diminishing the chance of focal brain injury during surgery. Retraction pressure recorded is equal over the full area of contact. A means is disclosed for optional evacuation of air from the system to improve accuracy and fidelity of the pressure measurements. Local brain hypothermia may be induced via the bladder and attached catheter, thereby providing additional neuroprotection during brain retraction. The device also allows for measurement of intracranial pressure, DC potential, EEG and, optionally, other physiologic parameters in epileptic and severe head trauma patients for management of edema and injury.
Abusive head trauma is a common cause of death and traumatic brain injury in young children. Computed tomographic (CT) scanning and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can identify children who have suffered abusive head trauma, but identifying children who need these studies is often difficult. When clear signs of inflicted head trauma are present, investigation is certainly indicated. In the absence of clear evidence, however, it is more difficult to determine when imaging is appropriate. Laskey and associates reviewed the current standards of evaluation for abusive head trauma among children with suspected physical abuse as evidenced by an order for a skeletal survey.. The authors reviewed the medical records of 51 children up to to 48 months of age who had skeletal surveys for suspected abuse and who had no evidence of head trauma. Outcomes examined included the following: (1) imaging by CT or MRI; (2) dilated fundoscopic examination performed by an ophthalmologist; and (3) any positive results ...
Every year, upwards of 1.4 million Americans experience a brain injury, as indicated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Head injuries in adults can be caused by anything from a crash to a fall in the shower. In consideration of the fact that some brain injuries in adults can be hard to notice, especially those that are purported as mild wounds, they are regularly misdiagnosed or neglected. People often used words like head trauma, head injury, brain injury, and traumatic brain injury and even allude to some injuries to the head as a bump or a blow. Brain injuries in adults can vary from mild to severe, and the symptoms can be indistinct. In agreement with Vani Rao, MD, Director, Brain Injury Program, and Neuropsychiatrist, There is no such thing as a mild head injury. Its a misnomer. The truth is, you dont need to involved in a serious accident to endure a brain damage. Some frequent reasons of brain injuries in adults include falls, car crashes, workplace ...
This paper is Part I of a 2-part series to describe the background and methodology for the Canadian C-Spine Rule study to develop a clinical decision rule for rational imaging in alert and stable trauma patients. Current use of radiography is inefficient and variable, in part because there has been a lack of evidence-based guidelines to assist emergency physicians. Clinical decision rules are research-based decision-making tools that incorporate 3 or more variables from the history, physical examination or simple tests. The Canadian CT Head and C-Spine (CCC) Study is a large collaborative effort to develop clinical decision rules for the use of CT head in minor head injury and for the use of cervical spine radiography in alert and stable trauma victims. Part I details the background and rationale for the development of the Canadian C-Spine Rule. Part II will describe in detail the objectives and methods of the Canadian C-Spine Rule study. ...
Also, dont assume that if your kid wears a helmet, his head is going to be safe. Youve got to use common sense too. As Nicholas Day pointed out in a 2011 Slate article on why he wont make his kids wear sledding helmets, head injuries are to some extent avoidable with good parental decision-making. Whats called for are more common-sense instructions from parents to their kids, not another layer of padding, he writes. Dont let your kid sled near trees or roads or tons of other people. Dont let your kid bike or use a scooter or skateboard in busy traffic. Speak up if your kids coaches are making them do risky practice drills that involve head collisions, or if they are allowed to head the ball when they play soccer: the American Youth Soccer Organization encourages coaches to not teach or practice heading to kids under the age of 10. Finally, if your kids play sports in which head injuries are common-these include football, soccer, hockey, rugby and basketball-you might put them on a neck ...

Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging of the brain following head injury is used in two distinct clinical contexts, (1) acutely, within days of the injury, to evaluate an unexplained neurologic deficit or to obtain prognostic information, and (2) chronically, to assess the degree of brain injury and explain neurologic or neuropsychologic findings
A cohort of 2747 patients with head injuries was followed for 28,176 person-years to determine the magnitude and duration of the risk of posttxaumatic seizures. Injuries were classified as severe (brain contusion, intracerebral or intracranial hematoma, or 24 hours of either unconsciousness or amnesia), moderate (skull fracture or 30 minutes to 24 hours of unconsciousness or amnesia), and mild (briefer unconsciousness or amnesia). The risk of posttraumatic seizures after severe injury was 7.1% within 1 year and 11.5% in 5 years, after moderate injury the risk was 0.7 and 1.6%, and after mild injury the risk was 0.1 and 0.6%. The incidence of seizures after mild head injuries was not significantly greater than in the general population.. ...

White children are more likely to receive cranial (head) CT scans in an emergency department following minor head trauma, compared with African-American or Hispanic children, a study published by researchers at UC Davis has found. [en español]
The main finding of our study is that the ε4 allele of apoE predicted both short-term and long-term morbidity. Patients with the ε4 allele were much more likely to remain unconscious for more than 7 days and were less likely to have a good outcome.. Understanding the role of apoE in normal functioning of the nervous system and in patients with traumatic head injury depends on the cellular expression and localization of this protein. Interest in the role of apoE in the nervous system has increased dramatically since the worldwide recognition of the APOE-ε4 allele as a major risk factor for the development of late-onset AD.21,22 Investigators have demonstrated evidence for apoE localization in glia and astrocytes of human and nonhuman primates, and it is the major apolipoprotein in the CSF.23-25 Experimental models of cerebral injury have shown that the expression of apoE increases in astrocytes after ischemic brain insult and in degeneration neurons and their processes.26-28. In confirmation ...
flefever at ix.netcom.com(F. Frank LeFever) wrote (7227) on 20 Mar 1999: ,One month is VERY early in the recovery process. , ,To some extent, it appears nonspecific complaints of fatigue and ,impaired concentration, very much like in some cases of mild traumatic ,brian injury (post-concussion syndrome) may be common after stroke, ,although traditionally not given so much attention as specific deficits ,(aphasia, apraxia, unilateral neglect, etc.), and may persist beyond ,acute recovery. ,--snip--, Im afraid I have no wisdom to offer on the rehabilitation of the stroke patient except to say that Franks comments sound very reasonable. However, I have come across the concept of secondary brain damage mediated by arachidonic acid (AA) following head injury. AA is released by damaged brain tissue and its peroxidation by specific forms of lipoxygenase and cyclo-oxygenase leads to the formation of leukotrienes, prostaglandins and oxygen-derived free radicals. These active species have been shown to ...
