  1. 1. Audiologic and cognitive long-term sequelae from closed head injury

    Författare :Per-Olof Bergemalm; Erik Borg; Tapani Jauhiainen; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; History of medicine; Closed head injury; CHI; sensorineural hearing loss; SNHL; cognition; TIPS; tinnitus; vertigo; memory; quality of life; QOL; Gothenburg profile; Medicinhistoria; History of medicine; Medicinens historia; Medicinsk handikappvetenskap; Medical Disability Research;

    Sammanfattning : Objectives – Head injury is an important health problem all over the world. Previous studies have shown that peripheral hearing impairment (HI) is a common sequel of closed head injury (CHI), but in most cases it will subside within the first posttraumatic months. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Modelling of Diffuse Brain Injury: Combining Methods to Study Possible Links between Transient Intracranial Pressure and Injury

    Författare :Ulrika Krave; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :animal model; astrocytosis; diffuse axonal injury; neurofilaments; diffuse brain injury; rotational acceleration; closed head trauma; rabbit; finite element analysis; intracranial pressure; injury mechanisms;

    Sammanfattning : The objectives of this research are the study of sagittal rotational acceleration induced diffuse brain injury mechanisms. Such injuries are common in vehicle accidents in particular; the consequences range from mild to severe symptoms and may lead to persistent neurological dysfunction. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Assessment of experimental neurotrauma

    Författare :Ying-Lai Huang; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Impulse noise; diffuse brain injury; focal brain injury; closed head injury; NSE; S-100; GFAP; apoptosis; astrocytosis; glutamate; c-JUN; rotational acceleration; CSF;

    Sammanfattning : Model systems of closed head injury are designed to replicate aspects of traumatic brain injury, ischemia and epilepsy in man. The aim of this thesis was to (1) develop sensitive systems enabling analyses of the biochemical reactions, as reflected by leakage of marker compounds to the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF); and (2) develop and assess a new model for closed head injury and associated dynamic changes in the brain cell.

  4. 4. Brain injury biomechanics in closed-head impact : studies on injury epidemiology, tolerance criteria, biomechanics and traffic injury prevention

    Författare :David Viano; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :Closed-head impact; brain injury; biomechanics; injury mechanisms; tolerance criteria; epidemiology; and primary prevention.;

    Sammanfattning : Permanent disability from traumatic brain injury is a devastating consequence of traffic crashes. Injury prevention is a fruitful approach to reduce the incidence and severity of disabling brain injury. LÄS MER

  5. 5. On Brain Oedema

    Författare :Mårten Jungner; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatic brain injury; brain oedema; fluid therapy; blood-brain barrier;

    Sammanfattning : Traumatic brain injury and bacterial meningitis may at a glance appear as two different disease entities. The host reaction, however, to both trauma and infection involves a strong inflammatory response, with the classical symptomology of rubor, tumor, calor, dolor et functio laesa. LÄS MER
