Angelos Kolias, MD, PhD
Angelos Kolias MD, PhD, is a Clinical Lecturer in Neurosurgery. His research aims to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and understand the mechanisms of action of interventions for traumatic brain injury incluidng elements like Acute TBI and Traumatic intracranial hypertension.
He was the research fellow of the RESCUEicp trial and his PhD was focused on decompressive craniectomy for traumatic intracranial hypertension. He is also the Co-CI of the RESCUE-ASDH trial (rescueasdh.org) for primary DC for ASDH and he is part of the Subacute and chronic TBI (chronic subdural haematomas; CSDH study). This project aims to develop a ‘core outcome set’, which represents the minimum that should be reported in clinical trials of CSDH. He is also the Co-CI of the Dex-CSDH trial of dexamethasone for CSDH (dexcsdh.org).
