24-hour ambulatory blood pressure and cryptogenic ischemic stroke in young adults
Background: In young patients, up to 40% of ischemic strokes remain cryptogenic despite modern-day diagnostic work-up. There are limited data on blood pressure (BP) behavior in these patients. Thus, we aimed to compare ...
Preexisting conditions in older adults with mild traumatic brain injuries
Objective: This study examined the prevalence of preexisting conditions that could affect premorbid brain health, cognition, and functional independence among older adults with mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), and the ...
Craniotomies following acute traumatic brain injury in Finland—a national study between 1997 and 2018
Background: A number of patients who sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) require surgical intervention due to acute intracranial bleeding. The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the national trends of acute ...
Changing epidemiology of traumatic brain injury among the working-aged in Finland : Admissions and neurosurgical operations
Background: Recent studies from Finland have highlighted an increase in the incidence of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in older age groups and high overall mortality. We performed a comprehensive study on the changing ...
Serotonergic Antidepressants and Risk for Traumatic Intracranial Bleeding
Background: Serotonergic antidepressants may predispose to bleeding but the effect on traumatic intracranial bleeding is unknown. Methods: The rate of intracranial bleeding in patients with antidepressant medication was ...
Admission Levels of Interleukin 10 and Amyloid β 1–40 Improve the Outcome Prediction Performance of the Helsinki Computed Tomography Score in Traumatic Brain Injury
Background: Blood biomarkers may enhance outcome prediction performance of head computed tomography scores in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Objective: To investigate whether admission levels of eight different protein ...
Impact of Oral Anticoagulation and Adenosine Diphosphate Inhibitor Therapies on Short-term Outcome of Traumatic Brain Injury
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Usage of oral anticoagulants (OACs) or adenosine diphosphate inhibitors (ADPi) is known to increase the risk of bleeding. We aimed to investigate the impact of OAC and ADPi therapies on short-term ...
Incidence of surgically treated post-traumatic hydrocephalus 6 months following head injury in patients undergoing acute head computed tomography
Background: Post-traumatic hydrocephalus (PTH) is a well-known complication of head injury. The percentage of patients experiencing PTH in trauma cohorts (0.7–51.4%) varies greatly in the prior literature depending on the ...
Dynamic prediction of mortality after traumatic brain injury using a machine learning algorithm
Intensive care for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) aims to optimize intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP). The transformation of ICP and CPP time-series data into a dynamic prediction ...
Associations of long-term solar insolation with specific depressive symptoms : Evidence from a prospective cohort study
Evidence suggests that sunlight counteracts depression, but the associations of long-term sunlight exposure with specific symptoms of depression are not well known. We evaluated symptom-specific associations of average ...
