  1. 1. On Brain Oedema

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Mårten Jungner; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :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

  2. 2. Brain Tissue Oxygenation in Traumatic Brain Injury Experimental and Clinical Studies

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Karlis Purins; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brain tissue oxygenation; Cerebral metabolism; Traumatic brain injury; Cerebral ischemia; Threshold levels; Neurovent-PTO; Microdialysis; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability. TBI is frequently followed by cerebral ischemia which is a great contributor to secondary brain damage. The main causes of cerebral ischemia are pathophysiological changes in cerebral blood flow and metabolism. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular Characterization of Experimental Traumatic Brain Injury

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Charlotte Israelsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :Neurosciences; traumatic brain injury; transcripts; GeneChip; chemokine; inflammation; mouse brain; neuroprotection; neuronal injury; neuroregeneration; astrocytosis; Neurovetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common cause of mortality and disability in the younger (<50 years) Swedish population with an incidence rate of 20,000 cases per year. This thesis aims to increase the understanding of brain injury mechanisms, especially in a molecular and cellular context. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Studies on outcome and prognostic factors

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Marianne Lannsjö; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rehabilitation; Mild Traumatic Brain Injury; Rivermead Post-concussion Symptoms Questionnaire; Rasch-analysis; prediction; outcome; head CT pathology; Magnet Resonance Imaging; Rehabilitation Medicine; Rehabiliteringsmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Objectives: To explore the prevalence and structure of self-reported disability after mild traumatic brain injury and the impact of traumatic brain pathology on such outcome.Material and methods: In study 1-3, symptoms data were collected by use of Rivermead Post-concussion Symptoms Questionnaire (RPQ) and data on global function by use of Glasgow Outcome Scale Extended (GOSE) from 2602 patients at 3 months after MTBI.

  5. 5. Severe traumatic brain injury clinical course and prognostic factors

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Maud Stenberg; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Severe traumatic brain injury; outcome; rehabilitation; prognosis; rehabiliteringsmedicin; Rehabilitation Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) constitutes a major health problem and is a leading cause of long-term disability and death. Patients with severe traumatic brain injury, S-TBI, comprise a heterogeneous group with varying complexity and prognosis. LÄS MER
