  1. 1. Mild head injury : Relation to cognition, dementia, fatigue & genetics

    Författare :Anna Sundström; Lars Nyberg; Maria Levander; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Neuropsychology; mild head injury; mild brain injury; apolipoprotein E; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Following a mild head injury (MHI), a person may report a variety of symptoms such as headache, memory disturbance, dizziness, and concentration difficulties. For most persons the symptoms are transient, but some suffer persistent symptoms that can have a major impact on everyday life. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Mild Traumatic Brain Injury : Studies on outcome and prognostic factors

    Författare :Marianne Lannsjö; Jörgen Borg; Per Enblad; Ulla Johansson; Richard Levi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; 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.

  3. 3. Finite Element Modeling of the Human Head

    Författare :Svein Kleiven; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Finite element method FEM ; Human head; brain; head injury; epidemiology; statistics; simulations.;

    Sammanfattning : The main objectives of the present thesis were to define the dimension of head injuries in Sweden over a longer period and to present a Finite Element (FE) model of the human head which can be used for preventive strategies in the future. The annual incidence of head injuries in Sweden between 1987 and 2000 was defined at over 22 000, cases most of which were mild head injuries. LÄS MER

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Mild head injury : inhospital observation or computed tomography?

    Författare :Jean-Luc af Geijerstam; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :Decision analysis; inhospital observation; management strategy; metaanalysis; mild head injury; randomised controlled trial; systematic review; tomography; x-ray computed; triage.;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Patients with mild head injuries are treated every day in emergency departments around the world. The rationale for any management strategy is to identify with a high degree of safety at reasonable costs, patients at risk of deterioration due to serious intracranial injuries. LÄS MER
