Traumatic Brain Injury & Concussion

TBI

Traumatic Brain Injury & Post-Concussion Syndrome (TBI/PCS), also known as intracranial injury, occurs when as external force traumatically injures the brain. TBI can be classified based on severity, mechanism (closed or penetrating head injury), or other features (e.g. occurring in a specific locationor over a widespread area). Head injury usually refers to TBI, but is a broader category because it can involve damage to structures other than the brain, such as the scalp and skull.

TBI is a major cause of death and disability worldwide, especially in children and young adults. Cases include falls, vehicle accidents, and violence.
Brain trauma can be caused by a direct impact or by acceleration alone. In addition to the damage caused at the moment of injury, brain trauma causes secondary injury, a variety of events that take place in the minutes and days following the injury. These processes, which include alterations in the cerebral blood flow and the pressure within the skull, contribute substantially to the damage from the initial injury.
