MILD TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY UPDATE
TLDR
Treatment for mild TBI are rather diverse, and early intervention is the key to maximizing outcomes following a TBI, and topics and more will be discussed throughout this article.
Traumatic Brain Injury: Current Management, Controversies, and Clinical Trials
TLDR
O Ongoing and future trials in TBI should be conducted using the best possible methodologies to avoid the clinical futility found in past trials of promising therapies.
Moderate and Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
This article reviews TBI in neurocritical care, hence focusing on moderate and severe TBI, and includes an up-to-date review of the many variables to be considered in clinical care.
Traumatic brain injury: an evidence-based review of management
TLDR
Almost one-third of patients who die after a TBI will talk or obey commands before their death, and factors such as hypoxia, hypotension, and alcohol intoxication can all affect GCS, leading to diagnostic confusion.
Recent Advances and Future Trends in Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Scientific understanding of the problem in its various dimensions, complexities and controversies regarding diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, outcome and impact of TBIs on rapidly transforming societies, challenges and opportunities in research and linking research to practice are addressed.
Biomarkers of Traumatic Brain Injury in the Geriatric Population
TLDR
This review highlights some of the latest technology that may pave the way for advanced diagnostic and treatment modalities in TBI management and identifies specific markers of brain cell damage that may offer insight to the nature and progression of injury.
End Points of Traumatic Brain Injury Resuscitation
TLDR
The role of clinical assessment, as such the Glasgow Coma Scale and the Full Outline of UnResponsiveness Score, neuroimaging, including computed tomography and MRI, and current research innovations, such as the biomarkers, to predict TBI outcomes are discussed.
Traumatic brain injury in humans and animal models
TLDR
The genetic polymorphisms of BDNF predict general intelligence following penetrating TBI, and the importance of categorizing the different types of TBI is shown, not only through the use of animal models but also in the clinical setting.
Rodent Models of Traumatic Brain Injury: Methods and Challenges.
TLDR
In this chapter, the methods, limitations, and challenges of the CCI and FPI models of TBI used in rodents are described.
Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
The guidelines for management of patients with severe TBI are summarized along with outcome measures and insight into some novel physiologic monitoring devices available are offered.

Clinical trials in head injury.
TLDR
This workshop proved to be very informative and yielded many insights into previous and future TBI trials, and it is hoped that these lessons will enhance the planning and design of future efforts in this important field of research.
Severe traumatic brain injury.
Intracranial hypertension and cerebral perfusion pressure: Influence on neurological deterioration and outcome in severe head injury.:
TLDR
Examination of the relationship and relative importance of ICP and CPP in severely head injured patients is examined by examining the higher risk group who manifest neurological deterioration following initial resuscitation after admission to the hospital.
Prognosis and clinical trial design in traumatic brain injury: the IMPACT study.
TLDR
The IMPACT database on TBI is created through merging individual patient data from eight RCTs and three observational surveys, and it is hypothesized that the statistical power of TBI trials may be increased by adjusting for heterogeneity with covariate adjustment and/or prognostic targeting.
The European Brain Injury Consortium Survey of Head Injuries
TLDR
Comparisons of the data from different parts of Europe showed substantial similarities and also differences that may reflect variations in policy for admission of the head injury to `neuro' units, and evolution in methods of assessment, investigation and management.
Epidemiology of traumatic brain injury in South Australia.
TLDR
It was apparent that hospitals in this state care for more than 4000 new cases of TBI each year and that, on discharge, over 1000 of these will have some degree of residual impairment and will therefore require some form of post-injury services.
Systematic review of prognostic models in traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Prognostic models for TBI are frequently published but they are developed from small samples of patients, their methodological quality is poor and they are rarely validated on external populations, which means the generalizability to these setting is limited.
Coagulation disorders after traumatic brain injury
TLDR
It is concluded that coagulopathy following traumatic brain injury is an important independent risk factor related to prognosis and routine determination of the coagulation status should therefore be performed in all patients withtraumatic brain injury.
Outcome of traumatic brain injuries in 1,508 patients: impact of prehospital care.
TLDR
Results from the 1,508 patients treated in a single neurosurgical unit over an 8-year period show that outcome for the severely injured patients in the present study is more favorable than in other large series of TBI.
The role of surgery in traumatic brain injury
TLDR
A surgical approach is frequent in posttraumatic intracranial hematomas in spite of a low level of evidence and one of the surgical options either in association with hematoma evacuation or in isolation is the technique of bone flap decompression.
