What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a form of acquired brain injury caused by an external force or trauma to the head, resulting in damage to the brain tissue. TBIs can range from mild to severe, with potential long-term consequences depending on the severity of the injury.

Here's an overview of the common types of traumatic brain injuries:

  • Concussion: Concussions are the most common type of TBI and are often caused by a sudden blow or jolt to the head. They can result in temporary loss of consciousness, confusion, headache, dizziness, and memory problems. While most concussions are mild and resolve on their own with rest, repeated concussions can lead to long-term cognitive impairment.
  • Contusion: A contusion is a bruise or bleeding on the brain caused by a direct impact to the head. Contusions can result in focal neurological deficits, such as weakness or numbness in specific parts of the body, depending on the location of the injury.
  • Coup-Contrecoup Injury: This type of TBI occurs when the force of impact causes the brain to move back and forth within the skull, leading to injury at both the site of impact (coup) and the opposite side of the brain (contrecoup). Coup-contrecoup injuries can cause widespread damage to the brain and are often associated with high-impact accidents, such as motor vehicle collisions.
  • Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI): DAI occurs when the brain's nerve fibers (axons) are stretched or torn due to rapid acceleration or deceleration of the head. This type of injury is common in severe accidents, such as falls or car crashes, and can result in widespread damage to brain function. DAI is often associated with long-term cognitive and motor impairment.
  • Penetrating Injury: Penetrating TBIs occur when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain tissue, causing localized damage. Common causes of penetrating injuries include gunshot wounds, stabbings, and accidents involving sharp objects. These injuries can result in significant neurological deficits and require immediate medical intervention.
  • Shaken Baby Syndrome: This type of TBI occurs when an infant or young child is violently shaken, causing the brain to move back and forth within the skull. Shaken baby syndrome can result in severe brain damage, including bleeding, swelling, and neuronal injury, and is often associated with long-term cognitive and developmental disabilities.
