Objectives: Therapeutic hypothermia has been of topical interest for many years and with the publication of two international, multicenter randomized controlled trials, the evidence base now needs updating. The aim of this systematic review of randomized controlled trials is to assess the efficacy of therapeutic hypothermia in adult traumatic brain injury focusing on mortality, poor outcomes, and new pneumonia. Data Sources: The following databases were searched from January 1, 2011, to January…

A meta-analysis of the effects of therapeutic hypothermia in adult patients with traumatic brain injury
TLDR
It is demonstrated that therapeutic hypothermia did not reduce but might increase the mortality rate of patients with traumatic brain injury in some high-quality studies, but patients with elevated intracranial hypertension could benefit from hypotheria in therapeutic management instead of prophylaxis.
Hypothermia After Traumatic Brain Injury.
TLDR
The results of the POLAR-RCT showed that early hypothermia did not improve long-term favorable functional outcomes in patients with moderate and severe TBI, and the international, multicenter design of the trial increases the external validity of the results.

The development of neonatal neurointensive care
TLDR
The origins of brain-oriented care of the neonate and the development of the Neuro-NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) are outlined and some of the challenges and opportunities in expanding this model of care are discussed.
Enduring Neuroprotective Effect of Subacute Neural Stem Cell Transplantation After Penetrating TBI
TLDR
The analysis suggests that the focus of neuroprotection research needs to shift from protecting dying and injured neurons at acute time points to modulating the aberrant glial response in sub-acute and chronic time points, and one unexpected agent with neuroprotective properties that shows promise is transplantation of neural stem cells.
From systemic to selective brain cooling – Methods in review
TLDR
Selective brain cooling (SBC) has emerged as a promising modality of TH, wherein organ-specific, rapid, and deep target brain temperature managements stand out as major advantages over systemic TH.
Therapeutic Hypothermia and Neuroprotection in Acute Neurological Disease.
TLDR
How research in this area carries the potential to improve outcome from a various acute neurological disorders is discussed, and how hypothermia also could be considered a neuroprotection model in basic research, which would be used to identify potential therapeutic targets.
Intracranial pressure thresholds in severe traumatic brain injury: Pro
TLDR
The measurement of ICP in TBI has become standard as the principal metric for clinical practice, but ICP is a surrogate index of intracranial elastance, which does not reflect the complexity of a pathophysiological relationship and is subject to measurement inaccuracies and confounding bias.
Intensivmedizinische Behandlung von Patienten nach Schädel-Hirn-Trauma
TLDR
Kernpunkte der intensivmedizinischen Behandlung bei Schadel-Hirn-Verletzten sind adaptierte Analgosedierung, optimale Beatmung und Oxygenierung sowie Wundmanagement.

Hypothermia treatment for traumatic brain injury: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
An updated meta-analysis of the effects of hypothermia therapy on mortality, favorable neurologic outcome, and associated adverse effects in adults with traumatic brain injury (TBI) for use by BTF/AANS task force supports previous findings that hypothermic therapy constitutes a beneficial treatment of TBI in specific circumstances.
A systematic review of therapeutic hypothermia for adult patients following traumatic brain injury
TLDR
There is some evidence to suggest that therapeutic hypothermia may be of benefit in the treatment of traumatic brain injury, but the majority of trials were of low quality, with unclear allocation concealment.
Prolonged therapeutic hypothermia after traumatic brain injury in adults: a systematic review.
TLDR
Therapeutic hypothermia may reduce the risks of mortality and poor neurologic outcome in adults with TBI, but the evidence is not yet sufficient to recommend routine use of therapeutic Hypothermia for TBI outside of research settings.
Meta-Analysis of Therapeutic Hypothermia for Traumatic Brain Injury in Adult and Pediatric Patients*
TLDR
Therapeutic hypothermia is likely a beneficial treatment following traumatic brain injuries in adults but cannot be recommended in children.
The role of hypothermia in the management of severe brain injury: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
This meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials suggests that hypothermia is not beneficial in the management of severe head injury, and additional studies are justified and urgently needed.
Hypothermia for traumatic head injury.
TLDR
There is no evidence that hypothermia is beneficial in the treatment of head injury, but Hypothermia may be effective in reducing death and unfavourable outcomes for traumatic head injured patients, but significant benefit was only found in low quality trials.
Therapeutic hypothermia for head injury.
TLDR
There is no evidence that hypothermia is beneficial in the treatment of head injury, and it would seem inappropriate to use this intervention outside of controlled trials in subgroups of patients for whom there is good reason to think the treatment would be beneficial.
Therapeutic hypothermia versus normothermia in adult patients with traumatic brain injury: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Therapeutic hypothermia failed to demonstrate a decrease in mortality and unfavorable clinical outcomes at 3 or 6 months post-TBI, and might increase the risk of developing pneumonia and cardiovascular complications.
Hypothermia in the management of traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Although meta-analysis suggests that iatrogenic hypothermia may confer a marginal benefit in neurological outcome, there does not appear to be clear evidence of lower mortality rates in unselected traumatic brain injury patients.
