OBJECTIVE To determine the association between traumatic cerebral ischemia and intravascular thrombosis, a common finding after traumatic brain injury (TBI). METHODS We reviewed samples of the frontal cortex and hippocampus from individuals who had sustained a fatal TBI. Sections stained with hematoxylin and eosin were reviewed and rated for severity of selective neuronal necrosis (SNN). Because intravascular fibrin microthrombi may lyse within a few days of TBI, we restricted our analysis to… CONTINUE READING
