In patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) initial neurological evaluation and follow-up are difficult, especially in the context of multiple trauma.
Multimodal neuromonitoring is essential in the management of traumatic brain injury as it allows early individualized therapeutic behavior that prevents secondary brain injury.
N. Martin; D. Kelly and colleagues describe the importance of changes in cerebral blood flow (CBF) following traumatic brain injury and define three hemodynamic phases during the first two weeks after trauma. Phases are characterized by transcranial Doppler (TCD) measurements, jugular venous oxygen saturation (SJVO2) through catheterization of the jugular bulb, and cerebral perfusion pressure. Phase I (hypoperfusion phase) occurs on the day of injury; Phase II (hyperemia phase, days 1-3) and Phase III (vasospasm phase, days 4-14).
We present a case of multiple trauma associated with severe TBI. The objective is to discuss the use of neurological monitoring after the limitation of invasive intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring.
