CONCLUSION: In conclusion, the present investigation revealed that FEE had potent antidiabetic effect in diabetic rats. PMID: 30666919 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Experiencing a childhood TBI can have a long-term negative influence on adulthood RQ. Such RQ deficits can underpin reduced life satisfaction and increased health issues. PMID: 30664366 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Hubbard ME, Bin Zahid A, Vonderhaar K, Freeman D, Nygaard RM, Kiragu A, Guillaume D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major public health problem, particularly in children. Prognostication of injury severity at the time of presentation is difficult. The Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) is a commonly used anatomical-based coding system created to classify and describe injury severity after initial presentation, once test results are able to better define the anatomical characteristics of the injury. We hypothesize that the Head AIS can predict discharge destination in children after TBI...
CONCLUSION: Results highlighted that some covariates had a significant impact on the FSS total score at non-central parts of its distribution, while others exhibited significant impact across the entire distribution. Addressing covariates of fatigue across the severity continuum can enhance research and clinical management. PMID: 30663436 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study aims to validate the Chinese version of the Coma Recovery Scale-Revised (CRS-R). METHODS: One hundred sixty-nine patients were assessed with both the CRS-R and the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), diagnosed as being in unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (UWS, formerly known as vegetative state), minimally conscious state (MCS), or emergence from MCS (EMCS). A subgroup of 50 patients has been assessed twice by the same rater, within 24 h. Patient outcome was documented six months after assessment. RESULTS: The internal consistency for the CRS-R total score was excellent (Cronbach's α = 0.84)....
Authors: Williams G, Schache AG Abstract OBJECTIVES: 1) To compare lower-limb joint mechanics during running for people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) to equivalent data obtained from a group of healthy controls (HCs); and 2) To determine if deficits identified in biomechanical variables during running for people with TBI responded to a six-month period of rehabilitation. METHODS: Running biomechanics data were recorded from 12 people with TBI who were attending a large metropolitan rehabilitation hospital for mobility limitations, and a comparative sample of 10 HCs at baseline and six-month follow-up. M...
CONCLUSION: Results suggest that head CT findings classified in this manner do not inform clinical discussions related to functional prognosis or rehabilitation planning after TBI. ABBREVIATIONS: CT: computed tomography; DRS: disability rating scale; EGOS: extended Glasgow outcome scale; FIM: functional independence measure; NDB: National Data Base; PTA: posttraumatic amnesia; RLOS: rehabilitation length of stay; SPOS: semipartial omega squared statistic; TBI: traumatic brain injury; TBIMS: Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems.

CONCLUSIONS: The SADL-3 is a brief scale with sufficient psychometric properties. Teams can use it in clinical practice to identify patients' self-awareness in the chronic phase after ABI. PMID: 30663423 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Depression at 1 year post-TBI remains high but injury features are less predictive than early after injury. It is likely that pre-injury personality and coping mechanisms are more important in determining long term outcome. The predictors identified may allow targeting of vulnerable sub-populations.

CONCLUSION: Greater understanding of the lived experience of FM is needed to support more effective responses to both them and the individual with ABI, integrating services and families to improve quality-of-life. PMID: 30663417 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
