To assess the incidence of abnormal neuroendocrine function post-traumatic brain injuriy (TBI) in a large group of paediatric patients and its correlations with clinical parameters (Glasgow coma scale—GCS, Glasgow outcome scale—GOS, TC marshall scale, height velocity). We evaluated 70 patients [58 M, 12 F; age at the time of TBI (mean ± SEM) 8.12 ± 4.23 years] previously hospitalized for TBI at the “Regina Margherita” Hospital, in Turin and “Maggiore della Carità Hospital” in Novara, Italy… CONTINUE READING
