L.D. Patologia Chirurgica e Propedeutica Clinica, Università La Sapienza, Roma, Italia
The aim of this paper was to give a complete revision of the loss of consciousness (coma) in the cranio-cerebral trauma considering the microscopical anatomy. The unified synaptical channel is the fundamental histological interneuronic presence for the understanding of the pathogenesis of coma. The early drainage reduces the collapse of the USC and determines the reappearance of consciousness. Moreover, organ transplantation history is here summarized.
