Authors: Ntali G, Tsagarakis S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Pituitary gland is vulnerable to traumatic brain injury (TBI). As a result a series of neuroendocrine changes appear after head injury; in many occasions they reverse with time, while occasionally new late onset changes may develop. AREAS COVERED: In this review, we focus on the prevalence of anterior and posterior pituitary hormonal changes in the acute and chronic post-TBI period in both children and adults. Moreover, we present evidence supporting the need for evaluating pituitary function along with the current suggestions for the most appropriate screen...

Abstract Although head injuries are common in cycling, exact conditions associated with cyclist head impacts are difficult to determine. Previous studies have attempted to reverse engineer cyclist head impacts by reconstructing bicycle helmet residual damage, but they have been limited by simplified damage assessment and testing. The present study seeks to enhance knowledge of cyclist head impact conditions by reconstructing helmet damage using advanced impact testing and damage quantification techniques. Damage to 18 helmets from cyclists treated in emergency departments was quantified using computed tomography a...

Objective: Identification and validation of blood-based biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is of critical importance. There have been calls for more research on mTBI in older adults. We compared blood-based protein marker glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) concentrations in serum and in plasma within the same cohort of older adults and assessed their ability to discriminate between individuals based on intracranial abnormalities and functional outcome following mTBI.Methods: A sample of 121 older adults [≥50 years old with head computed tomography (CT), n = 92] seeking m...

We appreciate the comments from Brzezicki et al. regarding our article on medical management on deep space missions to Mars. They have rightly identified that there is an unquantified risk of infectious diseases in the extraterrestrial environment, especially new and emergent diseases. Expected precautions would include aggressive screenings and social isolation prior to launch; however, both emergent pathogens and extraterrestrial pathogens are possible. Such infections could pose significant challenge as accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment will be impacted by limited medical equipment available given weight an...
