Abstract:

Details of the clinical case: The case was a 72-year-old male with traumatic brain injury caused by a car accident. The main diagnoses were diffuse axonal injury, traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage, and traumatic subdural hemorrhage. The duration of this study was 8 weeks. Patients were treated with hyperbaric oxygen alone at 1 to 4 weeks and with hyperbaric oxygen combined with Jiao's head acupuncture at 5 to 8 weeks. The results showed that patients' LOTCA scale scores showed an overall upward trend, and the increase was significant at 5 to 8 weeks. Nir functional brain imaging showed that the HbO values in the frontal and temporal lobes of patients were higher at 4 to 8 weeks than at 1 to 4 weeks. Discussion: Cognitive impairment is a common complication of traumatic brain injury. This report is the first time to treat cognitive impairment after traumatic brain injury with hyperbaric oxygen combined with Jiao's head acupuncture. This treatment helps activate the cognition-related cortical function, increase oxygen supply to brain cells, and reduce cerebral edema and neuroinflammation, so as to achieve the purpose of cognitive function remodeling. The treatment regimen is safe, well tolerated, and has positive effects.
