BACKGROUND Postischaemic pyrexia exacerbates neuronal damage. Hyperthermia related cerebral changes have still not been well investigated in humans. OBJECTIVE To study how pyrexia affects neurochemistry and cerebral oxygenation after acute brain injury. METHODS 18 acutely brain injured patients were studied at the onset and resolution of febrile(More)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children is frequent, sometimes lethal, and may have life-long consequences in survivors. Prevention at school and in sports, including both kids and families, is of paramount importance. Scarce data are available in terms of epidemiology, physiopathology, management and prognosis. This non-systematic review suggests that(More)
This review focuses on the potential application of hypothermia in adults suffering traumatic brain injury (TBI). Hypothermia is neuroprotective, reducing the damaging effects of trauma to the brain in a variety of experimental situations, such as brain ischemia and brain injury, but it has failed to demonstrate outcome improvement in a major controlled,(More)
Clinical and experimental studies revealed that the injured brain is highly vulnerable to a subsequent insult. Surfery of the literature pertinent to clinical and experimental traumatic brain injury (TBI) is made. Increased vulnerability of the traumatically injured brain to an additional sub lethal ischemic, hypoxic, excitotoxic, or mechanical insult has(More)

The preeclampsia-eclampsia syndrome is a severe complication of the third trimester of pregnancy and represents the first cause of maternal death. It is mainly characterized by: weight increase, proteinuria and hypertension and can evolve with convulsions and maternal death. The etiology still remains unknown although a series of events have been(More)
