The treatment for HO is diphosphonates (etidronate) and NSAIDS (indomethacin). Salicylates may also be used. Etidronate will decrease the ongoing formation of HO. ROM exercises play an important role in both the prophylaxis and treatment of HO. ROM exercises are crucial in preventing ankylosis. Surgical resection of HO may only be performed after bony maturation, typically 12–18 months after the onset of HO. At the point of maturation, serum alkaline phosphatase levels return to normal. Post-Traumatic Hydrocephalus (PTH) Ventriculomegaly, due to cerebral atrophy and focal infarction of brain tissue, or hydrocephalus ex vacuo, is commonly seen in patients after ABI.
Fundoscopic examination is performed with the examiner using an opthalmoscope. Abnormalities in the fundus known as papilledema can reflect elevations in intracranial pressure, often seen in cerebral structural abnormalities such as brain tumors. Cranial nerves III (ophthalmic), IV (trochlear), and VI (abducens) are usually tested together, as they work collectively to provide full range of eye movements. Testing begins by observing eyes in a position of primary gaze while observing for proper ocular alignment and presence of ptosis (droopy eyelid).
