Abstract

A Cochrane metaanalysis and a study performed on children have recently confirmed that therapeutic hypothermia does not improve outcome after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI is not comparable to a short episode of global ischemia, where therapeutic hypothermia has been shown to improve outcome. The difference may be explained by the fact that hypothermia-induced stress after a traumatic brain injury reduces cerebral perfusion in the penumbra zone, where local circulation is already reduced. Thus, to date there is no indication for therapeutic hypothermia in TBI patients.
