Traumatic Brain Injury


The idea for this book started 10 years ago. As neurologists who had ventured beyond the traditional path in our specialty by developing an interest in traumatic head injury, we immediately developed a kinship when we met at the annual conference of Neurotrauma Society in California. Noting the progress made in emergency medicine, neurocritical care, and rehabilitation during the last decades of the 20th century, we realized that as a consequence of the increased survival of severely injured patients, traumatic brain injury (TBI) had been transformed from an acute to a much more chronic disease.
