An Introduction to Brain Trauma
Traumatic brain injury is generally associated with long-term medical, cognitive, emotional and behavioral changes. The treatment pathway is highly dependent on the severity of the trauma, but can follow a surgical, pharmacological and/or rehabilitative pathway. Ongoing research to understand the mechanisms and processes that underlie recovery, and the development of better diagnostic tools, may help to improve patient outcomes.

Integrating the latest evidence surrounding reversal agents for direct oral anticoagulants for patients experiencing intracerebral haemorrhage into clinical practice
Watch three experts provide insights on the impact of ICH in patients receiving DOACs, DOAC-ICH reversal agents and optimizing treatment outcomes.
- Recognize the risk of ICH amongst different patient populations receiving DOACs based on clinical trial and real-world evidence
- Appraise the latest clinical trial and real-world evidence on the efficacy and safety of oral anticoagulant reversal strategies in the acute management of DOAC-ICH
- Assess the factors guiding selection and administration of reversal agents and supportive care in the acute management of DOAC-ICH

Not “Doing the Same Thing Over and Over Again”
US Neurology. 2018;14(1):29–30 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/USN.2018.14.1.29
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Though the quote appears to be misattributed to Albert Einstein, its prudence is undeniable.1 CLEAR III (NCT00784134) provides ample evidence that this axiom has useful wisdom and perhaps even provides direction for physicians wanting to improve the outcomes of hemorrhagic stroke […]
Targeted Temperature Management in Non-anoxic Brain Injury
European Neurological Review, 2017;12(Suppl. 3):3–10
Neuroprotective Strategies in Traumatic Brain Injury Peter JD Andrews Western General Hospital NHS Trust and University of Edinburgh, UK Any severe trauma to the brain results in the activation of a cascade of biochemical pathways and release of chemical mediators. The innate response includes pro-inflammatory cytokines, chemokines etc., that are responsible for aggravating brain injury, […]
Targeted Temperature Management as the Standard of Care – Aligning Practice, Evidence and Guidelines
European Neurological Review, 2017;12(Suppl. 2):3–7
Scope of the fever problem in the neurological intensive care unitPresented by Stephan A MayerNeurocritical Care, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York City, New York, US Fever-related brain injury in the neurological intensive care unit (NICU) has been reported across several indications, including stroke,1 subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH),2 and intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH).3 Deleterious […]
Tailored Temperature Management in Neurocritical Care
European Neurological Review, 2016;11(Suppl. 1):2–4
Report from a Satellite Symposium held at the 28th Annual Congress of the European Society for Intensive Care Medicine, Berlin, Germany, 5 October 2015 Temperature management to avoid fever is standard practice in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI), subarachnoid haemorrhage and stroke. The aim is to reduce post-injury oedema and control elevated intracranial pressure […]
Foreword – European Neurological Review, 2016;11(1)
Welcome to the latest edition of European Neurological Review. This issue features several satellite symposia reports. The three pillars of success for long-term rehabilitation programmes in spastic paresis are outlined by Ward et al: setting patient-centred goals, detailed clinical assessment and guided self-rehabilitation programmes. Kelly et al discuss the benefit–risk profile of non-vitamin K antagonist […]
