Ischemia causes secondary brain damage after severe head injury (SHI). Cerebral perfusion is commonly estimated by monitoring CPP, but the adequacy of cerebral oxygenation requires further measurements, such as jugular oxygen saturation or, more recently, PtiO2 monitoring. In 7 patients with severe head injury, ICP, MAP, CPP, SjO2 and PtiO2 were monitored(More)
The brain CT findings in 54 patients in coma 1-5 (Bozza-Marrubini scale) following craniocerebral trauma are analysed retrospectively. Attention is focused on those of the CT features that constitute indirect signs of brainstem involvement: obliteration of the suprasellar cisterns, distortion of the perimesencephalic and quadrigeminal cisterns, dilatation(More)
