The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of FS VH S/D 500 s-apr for use as an adjunct to sutured dural repair in cranial surgery.
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of cranioplasty on cerebral hemodynamic and blood flow as prognostic factor in patients receiving decompressive craniectomy for Head inj...
The battle of Mosul was characterized by the use of improvised explosive devices, human shields and suicide bombers in an urban setting. It is unclear whether this type of warfare cause mo...
Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy of combined intraocular injection of gentamycin and clindamycin in prevention of acute posttraumatic bacterial endophthalmitis (APBE) following penetratin...
The purpose of this study was to randomly classify the upper third of the subscapularis in 1/2 of the rupture patients as preoperative group (arthroscopic and arthroscopic debridement grou...
Non-missile penetrating injuries (NMPIs) to the head and neck caused by steel bar are rare and without standard management strategy. We report a case of a 42-years-old female who experienced a steel b...
While gun-related penetrating traumatic brain injuries make up the majority of cranial missile injuries, low-velocity penetrating injuries present significant clinical difficulties that cannot necessa...
Surgical management of spinal dysraphism often requires the use of dural substitutes. Amniotic membrane (AM) has drawn the interest of clinicians for its valuable concentration of cytokines and factor...
OBJECTIVE Penetrating injury of the spine in childhood commonly causes profound and life-long disability, but it has been the object of very little study. The goal of the current report is to document...
Leptomeningeal cysts, which are cystic collections filled with cerebrospinal fluid, are rare complications following pediatric head trauma and surgical correction of craniosynostosis. These cysts deve...
Recurrent seizures causally related to CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Seizure onset may be immediate but is typically delayed for several days after the injury and may not occur for up to two years. The majority of seizures have a focal onset that correlates clinically with the site of brain injury. Cerebral cortex injuries caused by a penetrating foreign object (CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, PENETRATING) are more likely than closed head injuries (HEAD INJURIES, CLOSED) to be associated with epilepsy. Concussive convulsions are nonepileptic phenomena that occur immediately after head injury and are characterized by tonic and clonic movements. (From Rev Neurol 1998 Feb;26(150):256-261; Sports Med 1998 Feb;25(2):131-6)
Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
The organic and psychogenic disturbances observed after closed head injuries (HEAD INJURIES, CLOSED). Post-concussion syndrome includes subjective physical complaints (i.e. headache, dizziness), cognitive, emotional, and behavioral changes. These disturbances can be chronic, permanent, or late emerging.
A secondary headache disorder attributed to low CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure caused by SPINAL PUNCTURE, usually after dural or lumbar puncture.
Injuries to the optic nerve induced by a trauma to the face or head. These may occur with closed or penetrating injuries. Relatively minor compression of the superior aspect of orbit may also result in trauma to the optic nerve. Clinical manifestations may include visual loss, PAPILLEDEMA, and an afferent pupillary defect.
