*  Post-traumatic amnesia - Wikipedia
Post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) is a state of confusion that occurs immediately following a traumatic brain injury in which the injured person is disoriented and unable to remember events that occur after the injury. The person may be unable to state his or her name, where he or she is, and what time it is. When continuous memory returns, PTA is considered to have resolved. While PTA lasts, new events cannot be stored in the memory. About a third of patients with mild head injury are reported to have "islands of memory", in which the patient can recall only some events. During PTA, the patient's consciousness is "clouded". Because PTA involves confusion in addition to the memory loss typical of amnesia, the term "post-traumatic confusional state" has been proposed as an alternative. There are two types of amnesia: retrograde amnesia (loss of memories that were formed shortly before the injury) and anterograde amnesia (problems with creating new memories after the injury has taken place). Both ...

*  Prognostic factors and outcome of children with severe head injury: an 8-year experience | SpringerLink
Objectives: Our aim was to analyze prognostic factors and their association with outcome among children with severe head injury. Methods: We conducted a retrospective study among children with severe head injury admitted to our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) from November 1992 to December 2000. The patients were immediately evaluated for the severity of head injury (Glasgow Coma Score, GCS), clinical presentation, cerebral axial tomography, early complications (hypoxia and hypotension), metabolic and hematological alterations and early post-traumatic seizures. Six months after injury we applied the Glasgow Outcome Score (GOS). Correlations with GOS were evaluated using univariate and multivariate logistic models. Results: In all, 122 children with severe head injury were identified. The patients presented the following scores: 18 (14.7.0%) children had a GOS of 1; 2 had a GOS of 2 (1.6%); 27 (22.2%) a GOS of 3 and 75 (61.5%) a GOS of 4 or 5. A low GOS was significantly and independently ...

*  Consensus statement on concussion in sport: the 4th International Conference on Concussion in Sport held in Zurich, November...
A range of additional investigations may be utilised to assist in the diagnosis and/or exclusion of injury. Conventional structural neuroimaging is typically normal in concussive injury. Given that caveat, the following suggestions are made: Brain CT (or where available an MR brain scan) contributes little to concussion evaluation but should be employed whenever suspicion of an intracerebral or structural lesion (eg, skull fracture) exists. Examples of such situations may include prolonged disturbance of the conscious state, focal neurological deficit or worsening symptoms.. Other imaging modalities such as fMRI demonstrate activation patterns that correlate with symptom severity and recovery in concussion.10-14 Although not part of routine assessment at the present time, they nevertheless provide additional insight to pathophysiological mechanisms. Alternative imaging technologies (eg, positron emission tomography, diffusion tensor imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, ...

*  Fr. Bill Atkinson, O.S.A. Humanitarian Award
Humanitarian Award Recipient. On Thursday, February 23rd, Villanova University's Office of Disability Services will present the fifth annual Fr. Bill Atkinson, OSA, Humanitarian Award to Sydney & Celeste Corcoran, survivors of the Boston Marathon Bombing Attack.. Celeste Corcoran, and her husband Kevin were at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, to watch her sister, Carmen, complete the race, but while Carmen was still two-tenths of a mile away, the first bomb detonated. Celeste's legs were so badly damaged that she had to have both of them amputated, and she also had to have surgery for a ruptured right eardrum. Nearby, unbeknownst to Celeste and Kevin, their daughter, Sydney nearly bled to death after shrapnel flew into her right thigh. Before the Boston Marathon Bombings, the family thought they had experienced the worst accident; Sydney suffered a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage in 2010 after being struck by a car while crossing a street in ...

*  Sabinet | Maxillofacial injuries in sportive urban microscooter riders : an underestimated problem? : short article
The objective of this study was to establish preventive measures for injuries associated with adult microscooter riders. A prospective data analysis of 58 microscooter injuries was performed, using a relational database. Of the 58 patients examined, 40 suffered head injuries : 24 had deep facial lacerations, 4 had nasal bone fractures, 2 had fractured mandibles, and 10 had cerebral concussions. Six patients showed clinical signs of a cervical whiplash injury. The patients with facial lacerations needed suturing, while those with fractured mandibles underwent internal fixation. None of the injured patients were wearing helmets at the time of their accident. The microscooters had all been used for transportation purposes in the streets, rather than for sport or recreation. According to the patients the main cause of their accident was the loss of control of the microscooter while trying to slow down or to stop. All patients with face and head trauma reported ...

*  The impacts and outcomes of implementing head injury guidelines: clinical experience in Thailand | Emergency Medicine Journal
Objective: To describe the impact of implementing clinical practice guidelines (CPG) for head injury in a trauma referral system in Songkla province, Thailand.. Methods: The CPG was developed by a local multidisciplinary team and implemented using multi-faceted methods. The outcome of patients with head injury from three community hospitals and a university hospital (Songklanagarind Hospital) was reported in terms of "talk and deteriorate" patients and a "poor" outcome for patients with severe head injury. Changes to clinical practice were observed where the guidelines were implemented.. Results: 1000 patients with head injury were enrolled from 1st August 2005 to 15th January 2006. The incidence of "talk and deteriorate" patients was 10.5% and a poor outcome was noted in 35.5% of patients with severe head injury, similar to the results of a previous study in Songklanagarind Hospital (p,0.05). Following implementation of the guidelines, 19.8% of patients underwent CT scanning with similar ...

*  HON - News : Severe Head Injury May Raise Dementia Risk Years Later
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. He's 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, ...

*  The Human Skull by Jessica Peterson
The skull is the part of the skeleton that covers and protects the brain and other sense organs. The human skull is composed of 22 types of bones. These bones are separated into two categories, the bones the form the cranium and facial bones. The section of the brain that holds the brain is known as the cranium. The cranium is made up of eight flat bones that are connected. The cranium bones form the forehead and eye socket and the back of the skull. The facial bones include fourteen bones, the majority of them symmetrical to give the face symmetry. The facial bones include bones such as the maxilla, which is the upper jaw and the nasal bone. Joints known as sutures hold the bones together. At birth, the bones are not fully fused together, making the skull flexible. As a person grows, the bones of the cranium are fully fused together. ...

*  Course Content - #92402: Pediatric Abusive Head Trauma - NetCE
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.

*  Localization of Brain Lesions - WSAVA2004 - VIN
Although it is possible to localize a problem to the brain, and sometimes to localize a problem within the brain, it must be remembered that clinical signs may be the same regardless of the underlying cause. Clinical signs reflect the location of a problem. Brain tumors, infections, congenital disorders, trauma, vascular disorders, degeneration, immunologic and metabolic disorders, toxicities, and idiopathic disorders may result in similar clinical signs. For this reason it is essential to follow a logical diagnostic plan for a cat or dog with signs of brain dysfunction.. Following a complete history and physical and neurological examinations, a minimum data base should be obtained. This should include a hemogram, serum chemistry panel, and urinalysis. Survey thoracic radiographs and abdominal ultrasound help to rule out problems elsewhere. The major objective in doing these tests is to exclude disease outside the brain as a cause of the signs of cerebral dysfunction.. Plain skull ...
