Traumatic Brain Injury

Mild traumatic brain injury is defined as isolated head injury producing a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 13 or greater and occurs in the context of sports, recreational activities and vehicle accidents. These patients are usually asymptomatic on presentation. Most patients recover quickly, with a predictable clinical course of recovery within the first one to two weeks following traumatic brain injury. 5%-20% of the patient’s physical, cognitive or behavioral post concussive symptoms may be persistent. Radiological investigations including computer tomography scans should be obtained and magnetic resonance imaging can be very valuable in patients who have sustained mild traumatic brain injury. If there are any concerns about the safety of the discharged patient with mild injury, a brief inpatient observation period of 12 to 24 hours is advisable. Careful neurologic examination must be made to determine the presence of delayed complications if the patient returns for second time. Far from diagnosis and observation of symptoms, we will review the differential diagnosis studies, imaging options, cognitive-behavioral findings and molecular trials for mild traumatic brain injury.
