Abstract
Impaired consciousness, ascribed to injury of the ascending reticular activating system (ARAS), is a serious clinical manifestation of hypoxic-ischemic brain injury (HI-BI). Many patients with HI-BI remain in an impaired state of arousal (e.g., persistent vegetative or a minimally conscious state).(1) Diffusion tensor tractography (DTT), derived from diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), enables 3D reconstruction and approximation of the ARAS in the human brain.(2-5) Although recent studies using DTT reported ARAS injury in patients with brain injury (e.g., traumatic brain injury and HI-BI),(5,6) little is known about ARAS recovery in patients with brain injury. Here, using DTT, we report on a patient with HI-BI with ARAS recovery.
