Non-Interventional F-Two Isoprostane Trial (NIFTI)

Each year in the United States alone, 300,000 persons are hospitalized for traumatic brain injury, with approximately one quarter dying. Despite advances in aggressive neurosurgical interventions, intensive care monitoring and overall supportive management, many of those who do "survive" do not fully recover and are left with a varying degree ...

Phase N/A

Pituitary Functions After Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH)

Recent data have demonstrated that hypopituitarism seems to be a frequent finding after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and/or subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). However, most of these studies referred to retrospective evaluations. There are only few prospective data, and no longitudinal study routinely taking into account the assessment of anterior pituitary function ...

Phase N/A

Proteomics of Severe Traumatic Brain Injury: A Feasibility Study

The purpose of this study is to: 1. Determine the temporal course of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) expression in patients wiht severe traumatic brain injury 2. Determine the temporal course of the expression of MMP-related inflammatory mediators of secondary injury in patients with severe traumatic brain injury 3. Describe the association ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Passive Gait Training on the Cortical Activity in Patients With Severe Brain Injury.

Design: Prospective controlled non-randomized study. Materials and methods: 45 patients with severe brain injury and 15 healthy volunteers will be included in this study. The study design is illustrated below: 1. Baseline measurement of electroencephalography (EEG) and event related potentials (ERP) 2. Gait training in the tilt table with integrated ...

TMS in the Treatment of the Sequelae of Closed Brain Injury

It is plausible to propose that the same treatment paradigm may result in an improvement in mood and cognition with the possibility that these changes will be self reinforcing resulting in enhanced quality of life and reduced service demands. The proposal for the use of rTMS in the treatment of ...

Phase

Functional MRI Study of Attention in Normal Controls and Traumatic Brain Injured Patients

The purpose of this study will be to assess the attentional ability of patients with mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI) using the functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) technique. Methodology for specific aim 1: sagittal pilot scan, 3-D anatomical MRI, Whole brain echo-planar imaging (EPI), and functional MRI techniques ...

Phase N/A

Oxygen Toxicity of HBOT in Chronic Brain Injury

The study is a retrospective review of the author's experience treating chronic brain injury with HBOT, supplemented by cases communicated to the author, who developed untoward effects during or after their HBOT. The object of the study was to affirm or refute the author's general impression that there was an ...

Phase

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and SPECT Brain Imaging in Traumatic Brain Injury

The study is a retrospective chart review of patients with chronic neurological, emotional, social, and cognitive deficits from mild, moderate, or severe traumatic brain injury who underwent SPECT brain imaging as part of their evaluation and treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy in my practice over the last two decades. The ...

Phase

Evaluation of an Advanced Lower Extremity Neuroprostheses

Protocol Outline: Patents undergo surgery in which electrodes are implanted into muscles of the trunk and legs. Electrode leads are connected to an stimulator/telemeter. Following implantation, patients undergo training in standing, transfers and other advanced mobility skills using the functional electrical stimulation system. A prescribed course of exercise, functional training ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Explosive Blast as Compared to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder on Brain Function and Structure

Background: The clinical presentation of individuals with blast-related brain injury and post-traumatic stress reactions can be markedly similar and thus a clear description of the direct consequences of explosive blast is complicated by the emotional and cognitive sequelae of psychological trauma. The inability to clearly separate the basis of symptoms ...
