Abstract

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a leading cause of disability, both physical and mental in all age groups. However, in the past decade, the numbers of elderly patients affected by TBI have been rising exponentially. Most of these patients have cognitive and behavioral problems similar to dementia. In fact, having had a TBI in the past increases the risk of dementia and the lowers the age of onset. However, this condition has been neglected in current medical syllabus in most countries and very few clinicians have a comprehensive understanding of the etiology, pathophysiology, investigations and treatments options available. In this talk, the author proposes to provide a general overview of TBi and discuss the current protocols and the most recent cutting edge research.
