Abstract:
Article describing 10 patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) or stroke who were diagnosed with and treated for Helicobacter pylori infection after transfer to a neurorehabilitation unit during a 12 month period. The authors conclude that physicians who treat patients with TBI and stroke need to be aware of the possible high prevalence of H pylori infection in their patients. They recommend H pylori screening for symptomatic patients in neurorehabilitation units and providing definitive treatment to prevent recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding, peptic ulcer disease, and gastritis.
