Features of the correlation of neuroimaging data in patients with post-traumatic disorders of consciousness and the stages of its recovery

O.V. Kulyk


The analysis of a survey of 220 patients with post-coma disorders of consciousness at different stages of its recovery after severe traumatic brain injury was carried out. The clinical correlates of the stages of recovery of consciousness and the data of computed tomography were identified. The revealed features demonstrating a strong correlation between diffuse organic changes of the brain and the dynamics of the staged recovery of consciousness should be taken into account when choosing treatment strategy at the rehabilitation stage.
