Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism in Severe Head Injury
Primary neurologic injury due to any kind of insult (traumatic, ischemic, hypoxic, metabolic) can be followed by a chain of pathological events, that can worsen or perpetuate the primary lesion within minutes, hours or days. This group of derangements is traditionally defined as secondary damage, and its principal determinant, regardless of the producing cause, is ischemia-anoxia.
