Brain Death
Explanation:
Also: Brain-stem death and whole brain death

You probably meant "muertes encefálicas". Check the references below.

Good luck!


"Over the past 20 or so years, the concept of "neurological death" commonly called "brain death," "whole brain death" or "brain-stem death" (and, sometimes, inaccurately-termed "cerebral death") has gained increasing acceptance within the medical profession and among the vast majority of state legislatures and courts in the United States"
(http://www.jlaw.com/Articles/brain.html)

"En la década de los 60, aparecen más casos similares reportados en la literatura médica y en 1968, el Comité de la facultad de Medicina de Harvard constituído por 10 Médicos, un Abogado, un Teólogo y un Historiador, formuló el primer criterio para la determinación de muerte basados en un total y permanente daño cerebral, acuñándose el concepto de "brain death" ("muerte cerebral"). En nuestro idioma, sin embargo, es mejor utilizar el término "muerte encefálica" ya que éste refleja mejor lo que se quiere expresar. En español la palabra cerebral, se refiere a los hemisferios cerebrales y el término inglés "brain" se refiere realmente al encéfalo, que incluye además el tallo cerebral y el cerebelo."
