Non-hemorrhagic lesions are hypodense. Unable to process the form. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Figure 1 Figure 1.

Diffuse axonal injury

Susceptibility weighted image SWI of diffuse axonal injury in trauma at 1. Journal of Clinical Neuroscience.

Retrieved from ” https: DAI is the result of traumatic shearing forces that occur when the head is rapidly accelerated or decelerated, as may occur in car accidents, falls, and assaults. When the axon is transected, Wallerian degenerationin which the part of the axon distal to the break degrades, takes place within one to two days after injury. Neuroimaging Clinics of North America. Thank you for updating your details. Immediate disconnection of axons could be observed in severe brain injury, but the major damage of DAI is delayed secondary axon disconnections slowly developed over an extended time course.

Nonmusculoskeletal injuries of head head injury and neck S00—S19— Diffuse axonal injury DAI is a brain injury in difuaa scattered lesions in white matter tracts as well as gray matter occur over a widespread area. Black eye Eye injury Corneal abrasion.

Diffuse axonal injury – Wikipedia

The amount of axonal injury in the brainstem is predictive of long-term vegetative state, whereas supratentorial injury can result in focal neurological or neuropsychiatric deficits 1.

MRS can be of benefit in identifying patients with grade I injury which may be inapparent on other sequences. Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology. Though the processes involved in secondary brain injury are still poorly understood, it is now accepted that stretching of axons during injury causes physical disruption to and proteolytic degradation of the cytoskeleton.


Textbook Of Traumatic Brain Injury. DAI is characterized by axonal separation, in which the axon is torn at the site of stretch and the part distal to the tear degrades.

Delayed presentation of diffuse axonal injury: Loading Stack – 0 images remaining. Adonal lesions are hemorrhagic, and especially when they are large, then CT is quite sensitive.

Since axonal damage in DAI is largely a result of secondary biochemical cascadesit has a delayed onset, so a person with DAI who initially appears well may deteriorate later. The Journal of Emergency Axobal. Misalignment of cytoskeletal elements after stretch injury can lead to tearing of the axon and death of the neuron. DAI currently lacks a specific treatment beyond what is done for any type of head injuryincluding stabilizing the patient and trying to limit increases in intracranial pressure ICP.

Diffuse axonal injury is characterised by multiple focal lesions with a characteristic distribution: Retrieved 8 October In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Non-contrast CT of the brain is routine in patients presenting with head injuries. Some lesions may be entirely non-hemorrhagic even using high field strength SWI sequences.

Retrieved 18 July Over the first few days, the degree of surrounding edema will typically increase, although by 3-months post-injury FLAIR changes will have largely resolved 7. Unfortunately little can be done for patients with diffuse axonal injury other than trying to minimise secondary damage caused by cerebral edema, hypoxia, etc.


About Blog Go ad-free. Besides mechanical breaking of the axonal cytoskeleton, DAI pathology also includes secondary physiological changes such as interrupted axonal transport, progressive swellings and degeneration.

Comparison of matrix metalloproteinase expression during wallerian degeneration in the central and peripheral nervous systems.

Log in Sign up. Diffuse injury has more microscopic injury than macroscopic divusa and is difficult to detect with CT and MRI, but its presence can be inferred when small bleeds asonal visible in the corpus callosum or the cerebral cortex. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. This is to be expected as edema is faster to resolve than hemorrhage.

Journal of Neuroscience 24 They may be associated with significant and disproportionate cerebral swelling.

Axoplasmic transport and neuronal responses to injury Archived at the Wayback Machine. Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology. The patients at risk of diffuse axonal injury belong to the same cohort as those who suffer difusq brain injury and as such young men are very much over-represented. MRI is the modality of choice for assessing suspected diffuse axonal injury even in patients with entirely normal CT of the brain
