About the book

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common condition in Neurosurgery. Archaeological evidence testifies a wide application of neurosurgical practices during prehistory. In some particular cases, trepanation may be associated with TBI treatment. TBI presents in various forms ranging from mild alterations of consciousness to an unrelenting comatose state and death. In the most severe form of TBI, the entirety of the brain is affected by a diffuse type of injury and swelling. Treatment modalities vary extensively based on the severity of the injury and range from daily cognitive therapy sessions to radical surgery such as bilateral decompressive craniectomies. Guidelines have been set forth regarding the optimal management of TBI, but they must be taken in the context of the situation and cannot be used in every individual circumstance.

In this book, we will describe the current status of TBI treatment in both basic research and clinical practice. We will give a review of the various subtypes of traumatic injuries, optimal medical management, and both the non-invasive and invasive monitoring modalities, in addition to the surgical treatments. We will present the main achievements in therapeutic strategies of TBI. We will also discuss the future direction for developing TBI treatment from an experimental perspective.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Blanka Gugic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
