Cisternostomy for Traumatic Brain Injury: A New Era Begins

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

Abstract

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability especially in the young generations. In the United States TBI affects about 1.7 million people annually [1] and this number is higher in the developing countries. It is well known that TBI is associated to a primary and secondary brain injury. The first is without solution and depends on the impact. In surviving patients, what plays a critical role is the subsequent secondary injury since, without effective treatments, complex cascades will promote additional brain damage.
