BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore the association of cerebrovascular autoregulation (CA) and optimal cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) managing conditions with the outcome of traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients including additional information about the patients' age and grade of diffuse axonal injury (DAI). MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebrovascular autoregulation (CA) is an important hemodynamic mechanism that protects the brain against inappropriate fluctuations in cerebral blood flow in the face of changing cerebral perfusion pressure. Temporal CA failure is associated with worse outcomes in various acute neurological diseases. An integrative approach is presently used(More)
An innovative absolute intracranial pressure (ICP) value measurement method has been validated by multicenter comparative clinical studies. The method is based on two-depth transcranial Doppler (TCD) technology and uses intracranial and extracranial segments of the ophthalmic artery as pressure sensors. The ophthalmic artery is used as a natural pair of(More)
PURPOSE The maintenance of patient-specific optimal cerebral perfusion pressure (CPPopt) is crucial for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The goal of the study was to explore the influence of CPP declination from CPPopt value on the TBI patients' outcome. METHODS The CPP and cerebrovascular autoregulation (CA) monitoring of 52 TBI patients was(More)
