- Nima Derakhshan added an answer:Can glibenclamide be used as an adunctive therapy for cerebral edema in traumatic brain injury?The use of glibenclamide to control plasma glucose after TBI had no significant effect on patient outcome at discharge, but it could reduce the LOS-NICU (p<0.05). Glibenclamide also had no apparent effect on the presence of PSH in TBI patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.Dear Kenneth
Corticosteroids are contraindicated in TBI as they resulted in worsening of outcomes in recent studies
It s a guideline according to evidence based dataFollowing

- John Daugherty added an answer:Management of post head-injury Bruxism.Patients with severe head injury esp , diffuse axonal injury may have associated bruxism which, to my experience, lasts for 10 -14 days. I have been studying these patients in recent years with trials of pramipexol and benzodiazapines. I have come across the botox inj studies as well. I wish to have suggestions from colleagues.Non-invasive treatment modalities with symptom appropriate ancillary care can be very efficacious. With any head injury the trigeminal system is ramped up and it interrupts afferent signals improperly, even normally innocuous signals. Well developed night guards can reduce the excessive motor intensity of V3 and possible on the over all upper quarter pain.

Is anybody else interested in spinal cord injury?I have experience in contusion injuries in rats. we use a computer controlled impactor. there are some good paper which document that when the spinal cord is exposed - velocity of impact is important only unto a certain level. the most important parameter is the displacement of the cord by the impactor. for a severe SCI we use impactor velocity of 4 cm/sec with a displacement of 2 mm. hope it is helpful.Following
