  • Spinal Decerebrate-Like Posturing After Brain Death: A Case Report and Review of the Literature. [Case Reports]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Extension-pronation movements that mimic decerebrate posturing may be seen in a delayed fashion after BD. Verification of lack of any brain activity (by both examination and multiple ancillary tests) in this case and others prompts us to attribute these movements as spinal cord reflexes and propose they be recognized within the rubric of accepted post-BD automatisms that should not delay diagnosis or necessitate confirmatory testing.

  • [Communication with the relatives of a patient presumed brain dead]. [Case Reports]
  • NTNed Tijdschr Geneeskd 2011; 155(18):A3404

  • CONCLUSIONS: A patient is dead after complete brain death determination or after circulatory arrest. Loss of consciousness (Glasgow Coma score of 3) and absence of brain stem reflexes lead to a state of catastrophic cerebral damage, but not to brain death. In such a situation, wording such as 'brain death', 'deceased' and 'clinical brain death' should be avoided in conversations with the relatives.
