OBJECTIVES The present study aimed at the analysis of release patterns of neurobiochemical markers of brain damage (neuron specific enolase (NSE) and protein S-100B) in patients with traumatic brain injury and their predictive value with respect to the short and long term neuropsychological outcome. METHODS Serial NSE and S-100B concentrations were(More)
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE A comparison of the effects of focal and diffuse axonal injury in mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI). RESEARCH DESIGN In a prospective longitudinal study of 138 consecutive patients suffering from TBI who were admitted to the Magdeburg University Hospital, 60 could be assessed neuropsychologically 8--31 days after trauma and(More)
This study aimed at the investigation of release patterns of neuron specific enolase (NSE) and protein S-100B after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their association with intracranial pathologic changes as demonstrated in computerized tomography (CT). We analyzed NSE and S-100B concentrations in serial venous blood samples taken one to three days after TBI(More)
The present study aimed at the predictive value of early release patterns of protein S-100B and neuron specific enolase (NSE) in patients with traumatic brain injury. We investigated 69 patients who were admitted to the Department of Neurosurgery following traumatic brain injury. Both NSE and S-100B serum concentrations during the first three days after(More)
This investigation evaluated the neuropsychological symptoms in the early posttraumatic period following blunt head injury and their correlation to routine imaging data in a consecutive series of TBI patients (Magdeburg Neurotrauma Databank). Of 135 consecutive patients, 68 could be assessed neuropsychologically 8-21 days after trauma. In 61 patients,(More)
425 patients showing mild coronary artery disease (CAD) on arteriography were enrolled in a multicentre trial and randomised to treatment with nifedipine (80 mg/day) or placebo. The two groups were well matched for age, sex, and risk factors. 348 patients (82%) underwent repeat arteriography 3 years later; 282 (134 nifedipine, 148 placebo) had received(More)

Substance P-like immunoreactivity (SPLI) was determined in cerebrovascular fluid of patients with extrapyramidal motor diseases. Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) showed a SPLI concentration decreased by 30% compared with patients without extrapyramidal disease. No differences were apparent for patients with dystonia. Fluid obtained from the foramen(More)
