UNLABELLED Lactate and the lactate-pyruvate index (LPI) are two hypoxia markers widely used to detect brain tissue hypoxia in patients with acute traumatic brain injury. These two markers have a more complex behavior than expected as they can be abnormally high in circumstances with no detectable brain hypoxia. This condition must be considered in the(More)
AIM Low levels of hypocretin-1 (HC-1) have been associated with hypersomnia, obesity, depression, and chronic headaches. These conditions are frequently present in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and may be associated with abnormalities of the hypocretin system. The aim of this study was to determine HC-1 concentrations in(More)
Cerebral microdialysis is a tool that provides very relevant information in the metabolic monitoring of brain injured patients. It is a particularly effective technique for the detection and analysis of small molecules, given that the pores of the dialysis membrane act as a barrier to restrict the transport of larger species, such as proteins and other(More)
