What Happened to My Husband?
page Traumatic Brain Injury
Medical professionals training those who have been wounded in the recent conflicts in the Mideast tell us that many troops coming home with a diagnosis of PTSD actually have Traumatic Brain Injury.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is usually the result of a sudden, violent blow to the head. The skull can often withstand a forceful, external impact without fracturing – but a blow such as this can launch the brain on an internal collision with the skull. The result, an injured brain inside an intact skull, is known as a “closed-head injury.”
A brain injury may also occur when a projectile, such as a bullet, rock or fragment of a fractured skull, penetrates the brain. The severity of brain injuries can vary greatly, depending on the part of the brain affected and the extent of the damage. A mild brain injury may cause only temporary confusion and headache, but a serious one can be fatal.
