Treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)-Related Attention Deficits in Children

Symptoms of inattentiveness, impulsivity, and poor persistence have been observed in children following traumatic brain injury (TBI). These often are among the most prominent symptoms manifested and may contribute to interference in a variety of other functional domains. Although there has been some use of psychostimulant medication to treat TBI-acquired ...

Effect of Amantadine Administration on Spatial Functioning Following Traumatic Brain Injury

Amantadine hydrochloride is one of the drugs given at rehabilitation programs to people who suffered Acquired Brain Injury in order to expedite recovery and improve functioning. A previous study examined the spatially asymmetric allocation of attention in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Patients demonstrated significantly worse performance with leftward ...

Efficiency of a Small-peptide Enteral Feeding Formula Compared to a Whole-protein Formula

This open-labelled prospective randomized trial aims to compare 2 groups of patients: the Study Group and the Control Group. The randomization process will concern the allocation of the type of enteral feeding formula administered for nutritional support: Peptamen AF in the Study Group, and Sondalis HP in the Control Group. ...

Does Short-Term Anti-Seizure Prophylaxis After Traumatic Brain Injury Decrease Seizure Rates?

The efficacy of anti-seizure prophylaxis in head injury patients remains controversial. Current recommendations for the use of anti-seizure prophylaxis are based upon a single institution study that has not been reproduced with other studies contradicting their conclusions. The proposed study will be a randomized prospective study at Loyola University Medical ...

Timing of VTE Prophylaxis in TBI

This a randomized prospective study that compares the efficacy and complication rates of early (24 hours) versus late (72 hours) VTE prophylaxis administration to TBI patients. Patients who are identified as having an intracranial injury will be randomized to early versus late VTE prophylaxis using a 1:1 random numbers allocation. ...

Intensive Insulin Therapy for Strict Glycemic Control in Neurosurgical Patients: Safety and Efficacy

Intensive Insulin Therapy and Strict Glycemic Control (80-120 mg/dL) Versus Standard Insulin Therapy in Neurosurgical Intensive Care Patients (Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, Traumatic Brain Injury, Intracranial Expanding Lesion): Safety, and Efficacy (Mortality, Morbidity, Long Term Neurologic Outcome).

Normothermia in Patients With Acute Cerebral Damage

Pyrexia can exacerbate ischemic neuronal damage and physiological dysfunction after traumatic brain injury and subarachnoid hemorrhage.Fever also represent an important issue occurring in 78% of patients with acute cerebral damage admitted to intensive care unit (ICU). For those patients, normothermia is actually recommended in order to reduce secondary cerebral damage ...

Is Sensory Stimulation Effective in Reducing Time Spent in a Coma or Vegetative State

A randomised control trial of patients who have a severe brain injury to determine if patients who receive a standardised sensory stimulation program emerge earlier from a vegetative state. The experimental group would receive, in addition to their normal occupational therapy, sensory stimulation which would involve the daily application of ...
