Study of Reserves After Traumatic Brain Injury
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||traumatic brain injury|
|Treatments||brain mri, mri|
|Sponsor||Sheba Medical Center|
|Start date||August 2009|
|End date||January 2014|
|Trial size||240 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01628003, SHEBA-09-7297-AS-CTIL|
It is hypothesized that the long-term results of rehabilitation and subsequent aging after Brain Trauma depend on brain's premorbid anatomical (structural) and functional (cognitive, emotional) reserves.
The purpose of this study are:
1. to determine whether such reserves exist.
2. to study their convergent and discriminant validity.
3. to study their characteristics.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
time frame: neuropsychological baterry for every participant will be performed during 3-4 meetings. An expected average for complete neuropsychological assessment is about 8 weeks
Male or female participants from 19 years up to 80 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Moderate-Severe Traumatic Brain Injury according to at least 1 the following: - Duration of loss of consciousness (LOC) - more then 1/2 hour - Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) - less then 13 - Post Traumatic Amnesia (PTA) - more then 24 hours. - At least 1 year after the injury. Exclusion Criteria: - Mild Traumatic Brain Injury - the present state of Post Traumatic Amnesia - dementia - the age less than 18 years on the moment of injury - less than 1 year since the injury - incapacity of the patient to cooperate in the study (incapacity of any source including physical, mental, and language problems) - premorbid diagnosis of Mental Retardation
