Abstract

The diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is a microscopic lesion of the axons of the cerebral hemispheres, the corpus callosum and brainstem who stands among traumatic injuries by severity of their consequences. However, there are few studies that describe the victims recovery of this injury and increase knowledge in this area is relevant to the introduction of new technical assistance, plan treatment and monitor the victims` evolution after this type of injury. Given these observations are objectives of this study describe the recovery of victims with a primary diagnosis of DAI up to six months after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to identify demographic and clinical factors associated partners. Will be part of the study the DAI victims, age e 18 years, admitted in Medicine School Hospital of the Universidade de São Paulo (HCFMUSP) six hours after the traumatic event. There will be a prospective cohort study with four approaches to victims and family: in hospital, at discharge or transfer the patient to another hospital, three and six months after trauma. To evaluate the funcionality recovery of victims of DAI will be applied scales - Extended Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS-E) and Disability Rating Scale (DRS), instruments that assess independence in activities of daily living (ADL)- Katz Index and Lawton and also a survey published in scientific literature and prepared to identify the behavioral changes after TBI. The score difference in the approaches of these instruments will characterize the programmed recovery observed and a multivariate analysis will be used to identify clinical and demographic factors associated with it.
