Traumatic Brain Injury
About Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury occurs when an external force injures the brain. Traumatic brain injuries are a leading cause of permanent disability and death worldwide.
A closed-head injury is a traumatic brain injury in which the skull and dura remain intact. Common causes of closed-head injuries are motor vehicle accidents, falls, falling objects, and violence.
An open-head injury (or penetrating head injury) is a traumatic brain injury in which the dura is breached. An open-head injury may occur when a bone fragment penetrates the dura and is driven into the brain.
Traumatic brain injuries often result in lifelong physical, cognitive, and psychological impairment. Physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy often are required for rehabilitation.
