Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury

by AK Mahapatra, Raj Kumar, Raj Kamal

This book “Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury” deals with the practical management of the patients presenting with various types of head injuries. Trauma is a major problem worldwide and contributes to significant morbidity and mortality. It consists of 56 chapters that emphasize the importance of preventive strategies at the regional and national levels including the three-tier-system of trauma management promoted by the Government of India. Aspects like fluid and electrolytes management are discussed in detail. Endocrine problems not only occur in severely injured patients, minor head-injured patients with short- and long-term effects, adversely affect the outcome. Infective complications, like meningitis and brain abscess, are not uncommon and require special mention. Coagulopathies also in head injury patients play an important role in the management of head injuries. Rare aspects, like post-traumatic basal ganglia hematoma, traumatic cerebellar hematoma, dural sinus thrombosis, CSF otorrhea and skull base fractures, facial injuries and atlantoaxial injuries, are also included to complete the list of complications of neurosurgical trauma.
