Traumatic Brain Injury: Recovery and Rehabilitation.

As a result of traumatic brain injuries, 50,000 people in Russia become disabled every year. An absurd accident on the road, a tragic incident in everyday life can destroy not only the life of the injured person, but also turn the life of his/her loved ones into endless torment. The aim of the Medical Travel Neurorehabilitation Programs is to achieve the best possible restoration of lost functions so that patients who have suffered TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY can return to a normal lifestyle.

Rehabilitation is an integral part of the treatment process in patients with TBI.
The lack of the rehabilitation stage of treatment strongly disadvantages the patient and his relatives to a long and painful process of self-treatment, which sometimes results in severe disability of the patient or their death.

The overall goal of the rehabilitation after TBI is to improve the patient's ability to live normally in the family and in the community, even with residual effects of the injury, which can be severe and multifaceted. Even with significant neurological disorders after a traumatic injury, we help the patient adapt with his or her disability or change the patient's living space and conditions to make daily activities easier.

Of equal importance are goals, such as prevention, diagnosis and treatment of complications and consequences of traumatic brain injury, such as post traumatic hydrocephalus, deep venous thrombosis accompanied by pulmonary embolism, neuroendocrine disorders. Each of these complications of TBI can lead to the patient’s death.

The correction of cosmetic defects after TBI is also one of the rehabilitation focuses. The performance of cranioplasty in order to close skull defects, surgery to repair defects in the facial skeleton or to reduce manifestations of paralysis of the facial nerve facilitates for the person who has suffered the traumatic brain injury, so that they can have a chance at a normal life again.

The early commencement of rehabilitation prevents deep disability and restores a person’s daily routine.

Rehabilitation is the process of achieving the optimal level of social adaptation and independence for the person who has suffered TBI in the following ways:

  • Training new skills
  • Retraining skills and abilities
  • Adaptation to the physical, emotional and social consequences of ischemic stroke.

How can we help?

With the use of the latest achievements available in German medicine, our interdisciplinary team of doctors, consultants, nurses, physiotherapists, speech therapists, neuropsychologists will achieve the maximum level of recovery after the sustained injury.

Rehabilitation is aimed at making the person who has suffered the injury independent in many areas. These include:

  • Self-help skills, such as feeding, care, bathing and dressing
  • Mobility of skills, such as subtle movements, walking or use of self-propelled steering wheelchairs
  • Speech skills for communication
  • Cognitive skills, such as memory or problem solving
  • Social skills for interaction with other people

The rehabilitation may also include a professional assessment, relearning driving skills and programs to improve physical and emotional endurance so that the patient may return to work.

Here is a clinical example of a successful recovery and rehabilitation after TBI.

The patient M., 20 years old, suffered a severe traumatic brain injury in one of the Russian cities. The injured M. underwent craniotomy, surgery to remove a subdural hematoma, the size of 120 cubic millimeters, six hours later after the injury. The next day the patient underwent a repeated craniotomy from the opposite side. Within 42 days from the time of patient M’s admission to the medical facility, he was treated in the Intensive Care Unit, was in a coma and underwent artificial lung ventilation. The patient developed extensive bedsores on the buttocks, heels, and sacrum. Also, he developed sepsis.

The patient M. was delivered to us by air ambulance. Upon the completion of the treatment of sepsis, healing of pressure sores, the patient started an early rehabilitation. Twenty days after the patient's admission to our clinic, he began to contact relatives. On the 30th day M. patient started breathing without the artificial lung ventilation machine, he had fully restored movements in the arms and legs . The bedsores healed and sepsis was treated as well. After another 10 days, the patient underwent cranioplasty (restored the integrity of the cranium).

On the 75th day of M’s. admission to our clinic he was discharged in a satisfactory condition without any neurologic disorders.

Most importantly, all those who have suffered TBI need a rehabilitation stage as a part of treatment. The lack of rehabilitation disadvantages both the injured person and his/her relatives to lifelong suffering. It is not so important where the patient will undergo rehabilitation. The main thing is that it should be provided to the patient. We also have a great deal of experience regarding the treatment and rehabilitation of traumatic brain injury and
