Cognitively Augmented Behavioral Activation for Veterans With Comorbid TBI/PTSD

Veterans historically exhibit high rates of comorbid mTBI/PTSD. Given the comorbidity and neuropsychiatric symptom overlap of these disorders, it can be difficult to determine whether problems and disruptions in functioning are due to mTBI, PTSD, or both. Hence, it is challenging for providers to know how to prioritize these patients' ...

Phase N/A

GLP-1 and Hyperoxia for Organ Protection in Heart Surgery

Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) have associated atherosclerotic renal and cerebral disease making these organs especially vulnerable to ischemia during open heart surgery. At the Heart Center at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen the investigators perform more than 1000 open heart surgery operations yearly. The primary indication is CAD with or ...

Phase N/A

Traumatic Injury Clinical Trial Evaluating Tranexamic Acid in Children

Tranexamic acid (TXA), a drug that stops bleeding, is the only drug treatment that improves survival in adults with serious bleeding after injuries. However, TXA has not been used routinely in children with traumatic bleeding because no studies have appropriately evaluated TXA for injured children. Such a study has the ...

Phase

Post-acute Structured Exercise Following Sport Concussion

A number of physical, cognitive, somatic, and emotional symptoms commonly occur following sports-related concussion. The current return to play (RTP) protocol advises complete physical and cognitive rest following SRC until patients are completely free of these symptoms (i.e. asymptomatic) in order to avoid making symptoms worse and furthering the injury. ...

Phase N/A

Cerebrovascular Reactivity in American Football Players

Investigators will measure cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during the chronic phase after repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (rmTBI) as a biomarker of traumatic cerebrovascular injury (TCVI). We hypothesize that CVR will be decreased in patients with rmTBI and that these decreases ...

Phase

Assessing Brain Changes Throughout the WCBH Program

Symptoms resulting from mild/moderate trauma to the brain are as varied as the individuals who sustain them. The currently held belief is that the majority of healing and functional recovery occurs within the first two years post injury. A large proportion of individuals who sustain mild/moderate brain injuries (mTBIs) do ...

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

Lactate Therapy After Traumatic Brain Injury

Study: Prospective, single-centre phase II interventional study. The study will take place at the Department of Intensive Care Medicine, Lausanne University Medical Center (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois, CHUV), Lausanne, Switzerland. Patient population: Patients will be monitored with an intra-parenchymal monitoring system, consisting of ICP (Codman, Integra Neurosciences), PbtO2 (Licox, Integra ...

Phase N/A

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Improves Outcome of Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy

Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) remains a major cause of neonatal death and long term disabilities. Data from animal studies have shown protective effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy to impaired brain. Recently research priorities have moved from bench to bedside. Several studies have shown a trend for brain protection of hyperbaric oxygen ...
