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

Effect of Antisecretory Factor Given as a Food Supplement to Adult Patients With Severe Traumatic Brain Injury

Treatment of increased ICP, using Anti-secretory Factor, in patients with severe head trauma Brain edema, defined as an increased fluid content in either the extracellular or intracellular space, arise in both trauma and in conjunction with other brain pathologies such as infectious diseases, intracranial tumors and ischemic events, i.e. stroke. ...

Phase

Brain Machine Interface (BMI) in Subjects Living With Quadriplegia

Medical device manufacturer Medtronic has developed a fully-implantable, bi-directional neuroprosthetic that is built upon existing deep brain stimulation (DBS) technology and has the ability to perform electrocorticogram recording and deliver functional electrical stimulation. This device is an incremental improvement to an existing Premarket Approved (PMA) deep brain stimulation (DBS) device ...

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

Rehabilitation of Working Memory and Brain Plasticity After Traumatic Brain Injury: Plastim-MDTC

This is a pilot feasibility study. Patients with subacute/chronic (> 6 months) severe TBI will be included if they suffer from a deficit in working memory. They will receive a specific hierarchical training of working memory (3 sessions per week during three months), according to a previously described methodology. A ...

Phase N/A

The Effectiveness of Biofeedback for Individuals With Long-term Post-concussive Symptoms

40% of minor head injuries are diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome 3 months after injury (Ingebrigtsen, Waterloo, Marup-Jensen, Attner, & Romner, 1998). These individuals have persistent symptoms after completing conventional rehabilitation programs. Persistent post-concussion symptoms not only decrease quality of life (Ingebrigtsen et al, 1998), but also impair cognitive and motor ...

Phase N/A

Implementation of Neuro Lung Protective Ventilation

Patients who experience lung injury are often placed on a ventilator to help them heal; however, if the ventilator volume settings are too high, it can cause additional lung injury. It is proven that using lower ventilator volume settings improves outcomes. In patients with acute brain injury, it is proven ...

Phase N/A

The NEUROlogically-impaired Extubation Timing Trial

Thousands of patients suffer severe brain injuries every year, from causes such as trauma, stroke, and infection. Extensive clinical research in weaning from mechanical ventilation has led to recommendations for prompt extubation following a successful trial of spontaneous breathing in general intensive care unit (ICU). However, little evidence exists to ...

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

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 ...
