1. Intravenous glutamine supplementation to head trauma patients leaves cerebral glutamate concentration unaffected.
Match Strength: 5.861
OBJECTIVE: There is reluctance to use glutamine-containing i.v. nutrition for neurosurgical patients, as this may result in elevated intracerebral glutamate levels, which are thought to be associated with neuronal injury and cell swelling, causing an increase in ICP and an unfavourable outcome. As general ICU patients benefit from i.v. glutamine supplementation in terms of reduced mortality and morbidity, neurosurgical patients might also be candidates for such treatment, if the possible relation between i.v. glutamine supplementation and a possible increase in cerebral glutamate could be ...

2. Emergency Department Sonographic Measurement of Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter to Detect Findings of Increased Intracranial Pressure in Adult Head Injury Patients.
Match Strength: 5.148
STUDY OBJECTIVE: Our objective is to determine whether a bedside ultrasonographic measurement of optic nerve sheath diameter can accurately predict the computed tomographic (CT) findings of elevated intracranial pressure in adult head injury patients in the emergency department (ED). METHODS: We conducted a prospective, blinded observational study on adult ED patients with suspected intracranial injury with possible elevated intracranial pressure. Exclusion criteria were age younger than 18 years or obvious ocular trauma. Using a 7.5-MHz ultrasonographic probe on the closed eyelids, a single ... Read More »

3. Influence of age-related stature on the frequency of body region injury and overall injury severity in child pedestrian casualties.
Match Strength: 4.750
OBJECTIVE: The current study aims to evaluate the influence of age-related stature on the frequency of body region injury and overall injury severity in children involved in pedestrian versus motor vehicle collisions (PMVCs). METHODS: A trauma registry including the coded injuries sustained by 1,590 1- to 15-year-old pedestrian casualties treated at a level-one trauma center was categorized by stature-related age (1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12, and 13-15 years) and body region (head and face, neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvic content, thoracic and lumbar spine, upper extremities, pelvis, and lower ...

4. Cerebral salt wasting syndrome in children with acute central nervous system injury.
Match Strength: 4.743
The purpose of this investigation was to describe the causes, clinical pattern, and treatment of cerebral salt wasting syndrome in children with acute central nervous system injury. This retrospective study focused on patients

5. Bilateral posterior medullary and cervical stroke: a case report.
Match Strength: 4.360
Spinal strokes are often localised in the anterior spinal artery territory, whereas an involvement of the posterior spinal arteries (PSA) is uncommon, and usually unilateral. Bilateral PSA stroke is exceptional. A 70-year-old woman, after a mild head trauma, presented with cervical pain, left hypoaesthesia and sensitive ataxia, which then extended to the right hemibody, including face. A Doppler ultrasound showed an only systolic flow signal in the left vertebral artery (VA). MR showed a bilateral infarction extending from the posterior medulla oblongata to C4 and a left hypoplasic VA with ... Read More »

6. Biomechanical analysis of blade plate versus locking plate fixation for a proximal humerus fracture: comparison using cadaveric and synthetic humeri.
Match Strength: 2.828
OBJECTIVE: To compare the mechanical stability of a fixed-angle blade plate with that of a locking plate in a cadaveric proximal humerus fracture-fixation model subjected to cyclic loading. A secondary objective was to evaluate whether the use of synthetic humerus specimens would replicate significant differences found during cadaveric tests. DESIGN: Mechanical evaluation of constructs in bending and torsion. SETTING: Biomechanical laboratory in an academic medical center. METHODS: Simulated humeral neck fractures (Orthopaedic Trauma Association (OTA) classification 11A3), in matched-pair ... Read More »
