Prognostic Potential of Prehospital Biomarkers in TBI Patients

The PreTBI III study aims to investigate the prognostic potential of prehospital and repeated in-hospital S100B, NSE and GFAP measurements as predictors of neurological outcome in patients suffering severe TBI. Knowledge on prehospital S100B, GFAP and NSE levels as predictors of neurological outcome and mortality may underline the potential of ...

Phase N/A

Observational Study in Preterm Infants With Intracranial Hemorrhage

Intracranial Hemorrhage (ICH) is an important morbidity affecting premature infants and can have considerable effects on neurodevelopmental outcome. The investigators showed that preterm infants with severe ICH have decreased cerebral oxygenation several weeks after the hemorrhage. The mechanisms involved in this state of decreased cerebral oxygenation in preterm infants and ...

Phase N/A

Systematic Assessment and Targeted Improvement of Services Following Yearlong Surgical Outcomes Surveys

The overarching purpose of SATISFY-SOS is to implement a rigorous process to assess short-term and intermediate-term outcomes of surgical and procedural patients who receive anesthesia services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital facilities, located in St. Louis, Missouri. Specifically, patients will be followed for major morbidity events, for mortality, and for quality of ...

Phase N/A

Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) Biomarkers

Aggressive treatment for patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) can result in return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). However, prognosis for these patients remains poor, with low rates of survival to hospital admission and low rates of survival to hospital discharge. Furthermore, due to the exquisite sensitivity to hypoxic injury of ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Sleep Apnea Assessment Strategies to Maximize TBI Rehabilitation Participation and Outcome

Background and Significance: Meta-analyses of TBI studies found prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) was 12 times higher than community-based studies. Yet, sleep apnea in those with TBI is largely undiagnosed. Given that sleep is critical for neural repair and disordered sleep may play a role in slowing functional recovery ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Military Service and Family Members for Post Concussive and Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms

This protocol is designed to facilitate the recruitment, screening and registry of Military Service Members (SMs) and individuals eligible for care in the Department of Defense (DoD) healthcare system. This protocol will serve as an entry point for SMs, retirees and other beneficiaries, to facilitate their participation in Center for ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers in Prehospital Prediction of Need for Neurosurgical Observation or Intervention in TBI Patients

The PreTBI II study aims to investigate the diagnostic potential of prehospital S100B and GFAP measurements in prediction of need for neurosurgical observation and/or intervention in moderate TBI patients, to rule-in high-risk patients. Ultimately to select patients who will benefit from neuro surgical expertise in specialized departments and thereby possibly ...

Phase N/A

The Premature Gut Microbiome and the Influence on Neonatal Immunity Brain Development and White Matter Injury

Recent advances in neonatal intensive care have dramatically increased the survival rate of extremely premature infants but the number of survivors with severe morbidity and lifelong neurodevelopmental impairment remains high. Perinatal white matter injury is the predominant form of brain injury in premature infants, often leading to adverse neurodevelopmental outcome. ...

Phase N/A

Correlation of Brain and Thenar Muscle Oximetry During Cardiac Surgery With Parameters of Acute Kidney Injury

The day before operation, after verification of inclusion and exclusion criteria, the visiting anesthesiologist will explain to the patient the aim of the study. By signing an informed consent the patient will be recruited into the study. On the evening before operation the patient will receive the statin in a ...

Phase N/A

MR Imaging of Perinatal Brain Injury

In the last two decades, major advances have been made in the clinical care of premature and term infants, including in the management of sepsis and respiratory compromise that can contribute to neurological disabilities in survivors. The incidence of classic cystic periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) has declined and a more diffuse ...
