Diagnosis of brain death, back to medical diagnosis!

What to exclude when brain death is suspected.

With advances in critical care and organ donation, diagnosis of brain death is gaining importance. We aimed to assess potential brain death confounders from the literature, elucidating clinical presentation and diagnostic approaches in these cases.

Accuracy of frozen-section diagnosis of brain tumors: An 11-year experience from a tertiary care center.

Pitfalls and challenges in frozen section (FS) diagnosis of central nervous system (CNS) lesions have been debated worldwide. The aim of this study was to analyze the frozen section diagnostic accuracy in correlation with the final diagnosis of brain tumors.

Brain Death and the Law: Hard Cases and Legal Challenges.

The determination of death by neurological criteria-"brain death"-has long been legally established as death in all U.S. jurisdictions. Moreover, the consequences of determining brain death have been clear. Except for organ donation and in a few rare and narrow cases, clinicians withdraw physiological support shortly after determining brain death. Until recently, there has been almost zero action in U.S. legislatures, courts, or agencies either to eliminate or to change the legal status of brain death. Desp...


To describe the annual volume of pediatric urology cases in an academic, tertiary care setting.

A Conceptual Justification for Brain Death.

Among the old and new controversies over brain death, none is more fundamental than whether brain death is equivalent to the biological phenomenon of human death. Here, I defend this equivalency by offering a brief conceptual justification for this view of brain death, a subject that Andrew Huang and I recently analyzed elsewhere in greater detail. My defense of the concept of brain death has evolved since Bernard Gert, Charles Culver, and I first addressed it in 1981, a development that paralleled advances...

Loss to follow up during diagnosis of presumptive pulmonary tuberculosis at a tertiary care hospital.

Sputum microscopy is still used for diagnosis of drug-sensitive pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program (TB programs) aims to rapidly diagnose and treat all cases of TB. The aim of this study is to find the proportion of loss to follow up during diagnosis of pulmonary TB after the patient reached hospital (was handed over sputum cups for sputum collection) from DOTS center after referral from respective outpatient department (OPD) at a tertiary care hospital.


To analyze the experience of a tertiary medical center in clinical and laboratory diagnosis of suspected HIT.

Clinical diagnosis of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in survivors of pediatric brain tumors.

Survivors of pediatric brain tumors often have neurodevelopmental late effects, such as inattention. Symptoms may mirror those of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which affects ~ 5-8% of the general population. This retrospective study of survivors followed at a large tertiary care center examined the prevalence of a clinical diagnosis of ADHD, and risk factors associated with ADHD diagnosis and ADHD-related medication use.

Identifying Hesitation and Discomfort with Diagnosing Sepsis: Survey of a Pediatric Tertiary Care Center.

Pediatric sepsis remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality despite the development of strategies proven to improve diagnosis and treatment. Specifically, early recognition and urgent therapy initiation are consistently associated with improved outcomes. However, providers bring these principles inconsistently to the bedside. The objective of this study was to describe practitioner knowledge of, and attitudes toward, sepsis as a means of identifying potentially modifiable factors delaying life-s...

Revisiting Death: Implicit Bias and the Case of Jahi McMath.

For nearly five years, bioethicists and neurologists debated whether Jahi McMath, an African American teenager, was alive or dead. While Jahi's condition provides a compelling study for analyzing brain death, circumscribing her life status to a question of brain death fails to acknowledge and respond to a chronic, if uncomfortable, bioethics problem in American health care-namely, racial bias and unequal treatment, both real and perceived. Bioethicists should examine the underlying, arguably broader social ...

Human ehrlichiosis at a tertiary-care academic medical center: Clinical associations and outcomes of transplant patients and patients with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis.

Ehrlichiosis is an acute febrile tick-borne disease which can rarely be a trigger for secondary hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH).

Rethinking Brain Death as a Legal Fiction: Is the Terminology the Problem?

Brain death, or the determination of death by neurological criteria, has been described as a legal fiction. Legal fictions are devices by which the law treats two analogous things (in this case, biological death and brain death) in the same way so that the law developed for one can also cover the other. Some scholars argue that brain death should be understood as a fiction for two reasons: the way brain death is determined does not actually satisfy legal criteria requiring the permanent cessation of all bra...

A Path Not Taken: Beecher, Brain Death, and the Aims of Medicine.

It has been fifty years since a report by an ad hoc committee of Harvard Medical School ushered in the widespread adoption of brain death as a definition of death. Yet brain death remains disputed as an acceptable definition within bioethics. The continuous debate among bioethicists has had three key recurring features: first and foremost, argument over alleged flaws in the conceptual logic and consistency of the "whole-brain" approach as a description of the meaning of death; second, efforts to fix perceiv...

Differences in Advance Care Planning and Circumstances of Death for Pediatric Patients Who Do and Do Not Receive Palliative Care Consults: A Single-Center Retrospective Review of All Pediatric Deaths from 2012 to 2016.

Growing evidence suggests that pediatric palliative care (PPC) teams influence the care received by children and young adults with chronic, life-limiting illnesses. Little is known about how PPC involvement affects advance care planning (ACP) and circumstances of death in pediatric populations with a wide range of diagnoses. To determine the relationship between PPC involvement, ACP, and circumstances of death for pediatric patients. A retrospective chart review of 558 pediatric patients who died between ...

A narrative review of family members' experience of organ donation request after brain death in the critical care setting.

Family members of critically ill patients suffer from high levels of anxiety and depression in the ICU, and are at risk of developing post-ICU syndrome following ICU discharge. In the case of brain death, and potential organ donation, the family is at the center of the decision process: within a limited time frame, the family will be informed that the patient is brain-dead and will be approached about potential organ donation.

HCV screening, linkage to care, and treatment patterns at different sites across one academic medical center.

It is unclear whether sites that screen large numbers of patients for Hepatitis C Virus but achieve limited follow-up are more or less effective at having patients succeed through linkage and treatment than lower volume sites that have higher linkage percentages. The objective was to compare the rates of HCV identification, linkage to care, and treatment success between different study sites including the Emergency Department, 3 outpatient clinics with unique patients, and the inpatient setting at one medic...

Inconsistencies in Colonic Tattooing Practice: Differences in Reported and Actual Practices at a Tertiary Medical Center.

Accurate localization of a colonic lesion is crucial to successful resection. Although colonic tattooing is a widely accepted technique to mark lesions for future identification surgery or repeat colonoscopy, no consensus guidelines exist. The objective of this study was to determine whether the current tattooing practice at a tertiary medical center differs from recommendations in the literature and self-reported provider practice.

Of Monsters and Men.

The November-December 2018 issue of the Hastings Center Report celebrates two anniversaries. In a supplement to the issue, the fifty-year-old debate about what "dead" means-a debate launched in 1968 by the publication of the Harvard report on brain death-is dissected and reinvigorated in a set of essays assembled by Robert Truog, of Harvard Medical School's Center for Bioethics, and The Hastings Center's Nancy Berlinger, Rachel Zacharias, and Mildred Solomon. Inside the regular issue, a set of essays celebr...

New guidelines for the diagnosis of irreversible loss of brain function : Concept and limitations, organizational demands, and implementation.

In 2015, the German Medical Association (Bundesärztekammer) issued new guidelines on the diagnosis of the "irreversible loss of brain function" (ILBF). ILBF replaced the colloquial term "brain death" in order to leave the notion that concepts of death might vary such as "cardiac death" or "apparent death" and stress the objective medical-scientific matter. The German Transplantation Law describes ILBF as "the final, irreversible loss of all function of the cerebrum, cerebellum, and brainstem." The new guid...

Minimally Invasive Trigeminal Ablation: Long Buccal Nerve.

To describe a technique of minimally invasive trigeminal nerve ablation of the long buccal nerve that was performed at a tertiary care academic medical center.

Brain stem death - an overview.

The concept of brain death has been a very intriguing topic and has taken many forms over the years. Brain stem death is a complex state of inactivity defined by the loss of reflexes of the pathways that pass through the brain stem, the 'shaft' of the brain which links the spinal cord to the cerebral cortex and the cerebellum where there is apnoea, loss of eye movement and pain sensation. There are many criteria, based on which a person can be said to be brain dead. The best recognised of these are the Harv...

Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis in a Tertiary Care Center in Spain: A Retrospective, Observational Study.

The aim of this study was to describe the characteristics of patients with chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) in a tertiary care center in Spain.

Readmissions After Acute Hospitalization for Traumatic Brain Injury.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is associated with functional deficits, impaired cognition, and medical complications that continue well after the initial injury. Many patients seek medical care at other health care facilities after discharge, rather than returning to the admitting trauma center, making assessment of readmission rates and readmission diagnoses difficult to determine. The objective of this study was to determine the incidence and factors associated with readmission to any acute care hospital af...
