Abstract

Objective: The goal of the research is to determine the responsibility of repeat strategy of CT scan brain from temperate to medium type of injury in the head.

Material and Methods: The situation gives importance to the retrospective examination of the patients who appear in the neurosurgery section at Hayatabad Medical Complex in the Peshawar emergency department. The study comprised 1055 patients with a GCS of 8 or higher who received medical care in the settings of a hospital after passing the repeat strategy of CT scan during patient stay at the hospital. Details about the physical analysis, history of the patient related to their medical terms, and patient demographics were collected, as well as CT scans. The most common symptoms were destruction attributes of neurological conditions, intervention requirements of neurosurgical aspects, and radiological worsening.

Results: The three-year study period highlights the 3456 population of patients associated with the condition of injury in the head and they brought to the emergency area of the hospital, and 1055 patients were able to attain the comprehensive standard. 39.5 years represents the average age of the patients, while 67.7% of the patients were men (n=715). 2743 quantity of Scans were analyzed on 1055 individuals having an average capacity of 2.6 scans in each patient. The result discussed the parameters including the involvement of all the patients who went under the aspect of the 2nd repeat strategy of CT scan after the starting the implantation of abnormal CT scan. The study group contained 95 patients (9.0%) with radiological deterioration, 40 patients (3.7%) with neurological deterioration, and 110 patients (10.4%) with neurosurgical intervention.

Conclusion: The responsibility of the repeat strategy of CT scan for the head is to identify the initial disturbing signs of brain disorder before the destructive nature of the neurological condition. The approaches will aid in supporting the treatment for providing better consequences.
