Histology in DAI. A number of histological techniques are available to appreciate sequential pathological changes in axons in diffuse axonal injury. These are primarily aimed at shortening the duration at which the axonal changes are seen and to put them in context to various traumatic and non traumatic conditions so as to differentiate the causative mechanism. Axonal swellings or retraction balls, representing transected axons, are the histological hallmark of axonal injury but are usually not visible before 24 to 36 hours by routine H & E staining or with a myelin stain like Luxol fast blue [2]. Silver staining method can reliably demonstrate axonal swellings within 12 to 18 hours [27]. The method has been found to be more sensitive and reliable as compare to H & E staining. However diffuse staining of axons by silver stains may occasionally make differentiation of injured and irregular axons difficult thereby limiting their practical utility [28]. Injuries to the axons may be detected even ...
Mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) are often associated with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In cases of chronic mTBI, accurate diagnosis can be challenging due to the overlapping symptoms this condition shares with PTSD. Furthermore, mTBIs are heterogeneous and not easily observed using conventional neuroimaging tools, despite the fact that diffuse axonal injuries are the most common injury. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is sensitive to diffuse axonal injuries and is thus more likely to detect mTBIs, especially when analyses account for the inter-individual variability of these injuries. Using a subject-specific approach, we compared fractional anisotropy (FA) abnormalities between groups with a history of mTBI (n = 35), comorbid mTBI and PTSD (mTBI + PTSD; n = 22), and healthy controls (n = 37). We compared all three groups on the number of abnormal FA clusters derived from subject-specific injury profiles (i.e., individual z-score maps) along a common white matter skeleton. The mTBI + PTSD
Methods 58 patients with TBI (Glasgow Coma Scale score 3-13) were examined with MRI at a median of 7 days, 3 months and 12 months post injury. TAI lesions were evaluated blinded and categorised into three stages based on location: hemispheres, corpus callosum and brainstem. Lesions in T2* weighted gradient echo (GRE), fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) were counted and FLAIR lesion volumes were estimated. Inter-rater reliability score was calculated. Outcome was assessed 12 months post injury using the Glasgow Outcome Scale Extended.. ...
Traumatic axonal injury is a progressive process evoked by shear forces on the brain, gradually evolving from focal axonal alteration and cumulating in neural disconnection. Clinical classifiers and conventional neuroimaging are limited in traumatic axonal injury detection, outcome prediction, and treatment guidance. Diffusion weighted imaging is an advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that is sensitive to the movement of water molecules, providing additional information on the micro-structural arrangement of tissue. Quantitative analysis of diffusion metrics can aid in the localization of axonal injury and/or de(dys)myelination caused by trauma. Diffusion MRI tractography is an extension of diffusion weighted imaging, and can provide additional information about white matter pathways and the integrity of brain neural networks. Both techniques are able to detect the early micro-structural changes caused by Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and can be used to increase understanding of the
Traumatic brain injuries are one of the most serious types of injuries caused by car accidents. Every year, over a million people suffer a traumatic brain injury.
Diffuse Axonal Injury is a brain injury associated most closely with the rotation and disruption of your brain within the cranium. This can cut away, shear or sever the brain axons, which are connecting nerve fibers. Damage such as this is typically difficult to analyze. It is also accompanied by microscopic tears that are difficult to locate from the get go.. If doctors diagnose your case as a "mild brain injury" you may notice that thus the wounds heal over time. But often, a DAI results in permanent disabilities from loss of consciousness to lifetime coma. Eventually, a fatality could be the nexus of a future wrongful death claim in civil court and even a murder case in criminal court.. Currently, medical science has not discovered a methodology to treat diffuse axonal injuries. But medical experts have observed in some studies that the damage to axons occurs in the first 12 to 24 hours after the head impact. Many are confident that modern advances in science will be able to treat and/or slow ...
An emerging field of research focuses on using biomarkers as a different non-invasive clinical approach for diagnosis of DAI. These markers could be detected in CSFsamples due to the breakdown products of neurons and diffusion through the damaged blood brain barrier of traumatic brain injury patients. Possible biomarkers could include proteins associated with primary structural damage or with the cellular and molecular cascade involved in secondary axonomy. Axonal and glial biomarkers include neurofilaments (NF), microtubule-associated protein tau, and α-II Spectrin, and myelin basic protein. These are all critical components of the cytoskeleton or myelin that are dephosphorylated, degraded, depolymerized, and form protein bundles upon injury due to the action of proteolytic enzymes. Biomarkers associated with the molecular cascade during secondary axonomy include β-Amyloid precursor protein, an axoplasmic transport protein that accumulates in the retraction balls, amyloid β, FE65, and ...

Calcium influx after axonal trauma has been hypothesized to be the major activator of deleterious processes after injury (Banik et al., 1987; Young, 1992; Lopachin and Lehning, 1997). It is thought that these processes lead to a delayed disconnection of axons after traumatic axonal injury (secondary axotomy) and to Wallerian degeneration of damaged axons in the white matter (Pleasure et al., 1992; George et al., 1995; Maxwell et al., 1997; Smith and Meaney, 2000). However, increased intra-axonal Ca2+ after stretch injury has yet to be directly demonstrated. In the present study, we used an in vitro axonal stretch-injury system that allows for the continuous examination of changes in intra-axonal Ca2+ levels. Using the Ca2+-sensitive dye fluo-4, we found that there is a substantial increase in axonal Ca2+ levels after stretch injury, dependent on extracellular Ca2+. In addition, we observed that this post-traumatic rise in intra-axonal Ca2+ was completely dependent on Na+ entering through ...
Traumatic axonal injury (TAI) is a consistent feature of (TBI) and is responsible for much of its associated morbidity. TAI is now recognized to result from progressive/secondary axonal injury, though much remains unknown in regards to the pathobiology and the long-term consequences of axonal injury. TAI has been described in the perisomatic domain, located within the neocortex following mild TBI, and within this domain has been linked to neuronal recovery, not neuronal cell death in the acute setting. Due to technical limitations, our understanding of the long-term fate of this neuronal population and the mechanisms responsible for permitting neuronal survival, recovery and axon regeneration following injury are unknown. The studies presented in this thesis are centered upon the hypothesis that injury within the perisomatic domain is unique, and may allow for enhanced neuronal recovery and axonal regeneration. To address many of these questions, we have utilized a novel model of diffuse brain injury

Can you die from post concussive syndrome - Can you die from post concussive syndrome? Not likely. Post concussive syndrome should not be fatal. Although this is one of the disorders under traumatic brain injury, concussion should not show abnormalities on ct scan or the diagnosis changes to something more severe such as diffuse axonal injury.
Thank you all so much for your thoughts, prayers, calls and emails. They mean so much to us. We are very heavy hearted tonight as the reality is really hitting us. We remain hopeful but weve learned a lot about brain injuries today. Johnny has what the doctors believe is a severe diffuse axonal injury. 90% of severe axonal injuries remain in a vegetative state. He will go for an MRI which will further assist in a determination of the injury. His coma scale remains at a 4 and they are not seeing any progress that they would hope to see at this point. On Monday he will be PEGd and Trachd. (ask the nurses among you) They started him on tube feedings, are still keeping him somewhat sedated. He has many friends which we are glad to meet…. He is such a shy kid that we had no idea he knew so many people. Theyve all told us what a good friend he is, how hard he works and how much they value him.

I know I have another post scheduled for today as part of Blogtober14 but I really couldnt let this Wednesday pass without commenting on poor Jules Bianchi.. At the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday he had a horrific crash. At around lap 42 or so Sutil span out at one of the trickiest corners of the circuit. It was raining and very wet, very difficult conditions. The safety car came out and the recovery vehicle (a big massive crane) was attending to Sutils car.. At lap 44 on the very same corner Jules Bianchi spam out and hit the recovery vehicle! Although Im not quite sure but he went into it head on. Now if youve not seen an F1 car you should know that its an open cockpit so the drivers head is exposed. Hes suffered some pretty serious head injuries. His family have now confirmed that he suffered diffuse axonal injury. When I looked into what this… it really doesnt sound good. All I can say is I hope he recovers from this.. ...

Abstract Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is a common feature of severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and may also be a predominant pathology in mild TBI or
The purpose of this study is to use magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to assess for traumatic brain injury and determine if there is any correlation of these findings to clinical outcome. MR spectroscopy using 2D-CSI (a multi voxel technique) of the corpus callosum, basal ganglia, lobar white matter and brainstem may reveal areas of injury and quantification of the metabolites from these areas may be used to correlate with imaging findings and clinical evaluation. White matter disruption in these areas is commonly seen after TBI, caused by diffuse axonal injury. It has been implicated in the long term outcomes in these patients, but has been difficult to assess by standard radiologic studies.. By the use of DTI it may be possible to demonstrate damaged white matter tracts which could be helpful in the evaluation of traumatic brain injury. Most TBI subjects have injuries that involved torque to the brain. This results in a shearing injury to the long white ...
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Annually, 150 to 200/1,000,000 people become disabled as a result of brain trauma. Axonal degeneration is a critical, early event following TBI of all severities but whether axon degeneration is a driver of TBI remains unclear. Molecular pathways underlying the pathology of TBI have not been defined and there is no efficacious treatment for TBI. Despite this significant societal impact, surprisingly little is known about the molecular mechanisms that actively drive axon degeneration in any context and particularly following TBI. Although severe brain injury may cause immediate disruption of axons (primary axotomy), it is now recognized that the most frequent form of traumatic axonal injury (TAI) is mediated by a cascade of events that ultimately result in secondary axonal disconnection (secondary axotomy) within hours to days. Proposed mechanisms include immediate post-traumatic cytoskeletal destabilization as a direct result of
Endothelial lesions play a major role in the development of ischaemic or haemorrhagic vascular occlusion. Dissection of large extracranial or intracranial vessels such as the carotid artery or the vertebral artery, with disseminated cerebral embolism, can occur after traumatic or even sporadic hyperextension of the proximal cervical spine.2 Diffuse vascular lesions after severe head injuries, especially ones affecting the corpus callosum and the white matter, are quite common and are caused by acceleration-deceleration shearing forces at intraparenchymal borders. They are described as diffuse axonal injuries.3 In our cases the affected vessels were small end arteries leaving their originating vessels (basilar artery and middle, anterior, or posterior cerebral artery) almost at right angles to perforate the brain parenchyma. The angle at which the perforating branches arise from the middle cerebral artery varies with age.4,5 Children are particularly vulnerable to translating, stretching, and ...

According to Dr. Ricardo E. Jorge, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Iowa, traumatic brain injury constitutes a major public health concern. With an estimated 1.5 million Americans sustaining a TBI and some 90,000 of those ending up with a long-term disability, you can see where Dr. Jorges concerns come from.. In a recent Psychiatric Times article, Dr. Jorge draws our attention to the impact of reintegrating TBI patients into society, taking into consideration their cognition and behavioral changes. He also states that cognitive, emotional and behavioral problems make up the majority of TBI disabilities.. Using 939 TBI patients and a control group of 2,817, doctors compared the prevalence of psychiatric illness in the first year that follows moderate, severe and mild TBI. 49 percent of patients experienced mental illness after moderate to severe TBI and 34 percent after mild TBI. Compare these results to that of the control group with only an 18 percent occurrence.. What these ...
Original observations, regarding the effects of exercise training on brain RAS, arise from this study. We described that exercise training does not change NTS AT1A mRNA receptor expression in hypertensive or normotensive rats but it completely normalizes the increased Aogen expression within this area in the SHR group. In addition, we showed in hypertensive rats that reduced Aogen mRNA density after training is correlated with arterial pressure fall and that training completely blocks the positive correlation between Aogen mRNA levels and MAP reduction or HR decrease observed in sedentary groups. We also confirmed that blunting effect of training on brain RAS overactivity (increased Aogen mRNA levels in the SHR group) is specific for dorsal brain stem areas involved in cardiovascular control as the NTS and area postrema.. The present results showing overactivity of the brain RAS in sedentary SHR (increased both Aogen and AT1A mRNA expression) confirmed previous observations on increased RAS ...
Patients were enrolled prospectively after providing written informed consent and ask Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) questions. This is a well-validated for cognitive impairment in Iranian adults. Cognitive tests will provide valuable information for understanding the mechanism of cognitive impairment after traumatic brain injury and manage TBI patients.19 Investigation indicated that MMSE function as similar predictors of the Disability Rating Scale in TBI patients.20 Demonstrated the validity of the Persian MMSE in recognizing normal versus abnormal cognition cut-off score for our subjects with a sensitivity and specificity of 98% and 100%, respectively, the test usually takes about ten minutes to complete The MMSE evaluates a range of cognitive domains, containing orientation, memory, language, attention and calculation, and ability to follow simple verbal and written commands.21 The MMSE is usually used as a short-form test in clinics and research instrument for assessing the cognitive ...
... , often referred to as TBI, is most often an acute event similar to other injuries. That is where the similarity between traumatic brain injury and other injuries ends. Traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head that causes the brain to collide with the inside of the skull. An object penetrating the skull, such as a bullet or shattered piece of skull, can also cause TBI.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Traumatic axonal injury is a primary brain abnormality in head trauma and is characterized by reduction of fractional anisotropy (FA) on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). Our hypothesis was that patients with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) have widespread brain white matter regions of reduced FA involving a variety of fiber bundles and show fiber disruption on fiber tracking in a minority of these regions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ethics committee approval and informed consent were obtained. Twenty-one patients with mild TBI were investigated (men:women, 12:9; mean age +/- SD, 32 +/- 9 years). In a voxel-based comparison with 11 control subjects (men:women, 8:3; mean age, 37 +/- 9 years) using z score analysis, patient regions with abnormally reduced FA were defined in brain white matter. MR imaging, DTI, and fiber tracking characteristics of these regions were described and analyzed using Pearson correlation, linear regression analysis, or the chi(2) test when appropriate.
The scene of the accident was horrific. A semi-truck travelling at a high rate of speed had slammed into the side of a highway patrol car. It took the 45 minutes to extricate the highway patrolman from his car. He was then airlifted to a hospital for the treatment of his severe injuries, which included a brain injury. A.V. had an alteration of consciousness at the scene and his Glasgow Coma Scale score was 3, indicating a severe brain injury. Other injuries included blunt chest and abdominal trauma, a right T2 transverse process spine fracture, a fracture to the right clavicle and fractures to the right first rib. An MRI of the brain revealed a subdural hematoma, cerebral contusions in the left temporal and bilateral frontal and parietal lobes, a right temporoparietal head laceration, a left temporoparietal skull fracture, and diffuse axonal injury to the white matter tracts in the brain.. Once A.V. had been medically stabilized, he was transferred to an acute rehabilitation facility for ...
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious public health problem. Even injuries classified as mild, the most common, can result in persistent neurobehavioural impairment. Diffuse axonal injury is a common finding after TBI, and is presumed to contribute to outcomes, but may not always be apparent using standard neuroimaging. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is a more recent method of assessing axonal integrity in vivo. The primary objective of the current investigation was to characterize white matter integrity utilizing DTI across the spectrum of chronic TBI of all severities. A secondary objective was to examine the relationship between white matter integrity and cognition. Twenty mild, 17 moderate to severe TBI and 18 controls underwent DTI and neuropsychological testing. Fractional anisotropy, axial diffusivity and radial diffusivity were calculated from the DTI data. Fractional anisotropy was the primary measure of white matter integrity. Region of interest analysis included anterior and ...

As modern helmets have become quite capable of defeating the penetration capabilities of ballistic threats, Soldiers may experience head injuries due to blunt trauma caused by helmet back face deformation (BFD). Possible resulting injuries include skull fracture, hematoma, concussion, contusion, diffuse axonal injury, etc. Some of these injuries have been associated with traumatic brain injury. In order to assess potential injury mechanisms prior to fielding new helmets, we have developed a means to experimentally replicate and measure helmet BFD that can be correlated to injury criteria. In this study, helmet performance test methodology is developed using a digital image correlation (DIC) technique. DIC provides the capability to measure dynamic displacements, thereby providing the ability to calculate deformation, velocity, and acceleration rates. We have shown that digital image correlation is an experimentation technique that accurately captures BFD area and rate of deformation for impacts ...
Principal Investigator: Stephen E. Olvey, M.D.. Institution: Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Miami School of Medicine, 1501 N.W. 9th Avenue, Miami, FL 33136. The Development of a System Using Triaxial Accelerometers to Measure Head Motion and Energy Exposure During High Velocity Vehicular Impact. Update. Head injury is a serious safety concern in motorsports. In Indy car events from 1985 - 1989, 367 crashes occurred involving 413 drivers, 38 of these drivers sustained 48 injuries. Despite the use of helmets and other safety equipment, 29.2% of these injuries were closed head injuries. One of the most severe types of closed head injuries, diffuse axonal injury (DAI), occurs as a result of high velocity acceleration/ deceleration of the head with a rotational component that may cause widespread neuroanatomical and neurophysiological damage. Athletes in a variety of sports who survive this type of injury can be afflicted with persistent neurological deficits.. Triaxial ...
Shaken baby syndrome (SBS) commonly describes a combination of subdural hematoma, retinal hemorrhage, and diffuse axonal injury (DAI) as the triad of diagnostic criteria. In some, the presence of rib or other fractures is also taken as a sign of abuse.(1-3). The basic issue to be reviewed here is whether or not in some instances in which a father, family member, or caretaker has been accused of causing the death of an infant or child from the SBS, the true cause of death was a catastrophic vaccine reaction.. This article concerns an unpublished series of 25 cases involving accusations or convictions for the SBS, largely collected by attorney and jury counselor Toni Blake of San Diego, California (personal communication, 2000), as well as some from personal knowledge, which have the following features: 1) All occurred in fragile infants born from complicated pregnancies. Problems included prematurity, low birth weights, drug/alcohol problems, diabetic mothers, or other maternal complications. 2) ...

Axonal pathology is a common feature of Alzheimers disease (AD) and it is considered to occur predominantly because of the accumulation of amyloid beta (Aβ). pets (before Aβ plaque development) R-F treatment decreased Aβ42 amounts and coincided with a CHR2797 substantial improvement in axonal transportation (p=0.0186) iHowever in older pets (after plaque development had occurred) we observed that R-F treatment didnt reduce Aβ42 amounts although we still observed a substantial improvement in axonal transportation while assessed with MEMRI (p=0.0329). We after that established that R-F treatment decreased tau hyper-phosphorylation in the old pets. These data reveal that both Aβ42 and tau comprise a job in axonal transportation price deficits in the Tg2576 versions. 1 Intro Axonal pathology can be regarded as a significant contributor to Alzheimers Disease pathology (Advertisement).

The most striking result of this study is the fact that nocturnal activity occurs in high temperatures if the flies lack Pdf and at room temperature, when the sLNv have been ablated. This might be due to a decoupling of this rhythm component from the rest of the activity in the dorsal brain. This result triggers the realization that there has to be another coupling factor in the circadian system of Drosophila. It was revealed, that ectopic Pdf in the accessory medulla has a strongly retarding effect on the endogenous clock, without causing any Splitting. This means that the coupling effect still works on the downstream neurons ...
