Die Borna'sche Krankheit ist schon lange bei Tieren, v. a. bei Pferden und Schafen, als eine sporadisch auftretende, progressiv verlaufende Encephalomyelitis bekannt und galt ausschließlich als tierpathogen. In Studien konnten Wissenschaftler BD-virusspezifische Antikörper auch in Liquores von Menschen mit psychiatrisch relevantem Krankheitsbild nachweisen, die die Erkenntnis brachten, daß der Mensch mit dem BD-Virus infizierbar ist.

Delayed posttraumatic hematoma or hemorrhagic contusion may form at a different site from the first craniotomy . With penetrating head injuries, delayed traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage may be a consequence of a rupture of a traumatic cerebral aneurysm. Evolving (“blowing”) contusion : Patients with SAH on early CT are those at highest risk for associated evolving contusions. In patient suffering from ASDH, CT scans performed within 3 h from the insult demonstrated associated parenchymal damage in about 25% while CT scans repeated in the following day showed additional parenchymal lesions in 50%.
Moreover, the timing of scalp repair is not crucial. If the patient is harboring a mass lesion, the scalp can be repaired after evacuation of the mass. Large localized hematomas of the subgaleal space may be aspirated, thereby minimizing the chance of formation of an encapsulated seroma. To prevent unexpected strong bleeding, foreign matter and bony fragments should not be mobilized outside of the operating theater. Useful additional therapeutic strategies: Tetanus prophylaxis according to immune status of the patient Noticeable scarring Wound dehiscence Infection Special Remarks Type of anesthesia With the exception of large scale wounds, scalp wounds are treated under local anesthesia.
Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) may be used in some patients with TBI to assess for arterial injury or venous sinus occlusion . 2 Functional Imaging Besides structural imaging, MR can provide data concerning physiological derangements: MRI and MR spectroscopy (MRS) are able to provide detailed hemodynamic and metabolic information over multiple regions of interest. These imaging modalities are helpful in defining the extent of injury, evidence of cerebral ischemia, and predicting outcome .
