Special Issue "Traumatic Brain Injury: Recent Developments and Emerging Trends"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a vast global health burden, which still lacks proper data on many crucial aspects, from reliable pathophysiological classification to targeted treatments. There has been an exponential increase in the number of publications on TBI, but the transfer of research findings from science to the clinic is frustratingly slow. Big international efforts hold promise for producing true advances for the diagnostics and care of TBI patients. TBI is a clinical problem that regards several specialties, from emergency and intensive care to rehabilitation and psychiatry. Therefore, reports on the scientific progress in this field are scattered throughout numerous journals with different, often narrow focus, making it difficult to obtain a complete picture of the current status of TBI medicine and related emerging trends. The development of technical solutions in laboratory medicine, imaging, and neurophysiology has been extremely rapid, providing us with new tools with numerous potential clinical applications. In few areas in medicine is the need for personalized medicine and for the use of artificial intelligence greater than in TBI, which is the most complex individual disease. Despite all innovative technologies and new application possibilities, the everyday care of TBI has made little progress during the last two decades and is still largely based on the personal experience and views of the treating clinician. The present Special Issue aims to provide an up-to-date review of TBI for all those healthcare professionals who meet and treat TBI patients at various levels and in different facilities. The focus of this Special Issue is on clinically relevant recent developments and emerging trends, with the aim to give the reader a good understanding of the current state of TBI medicine.
