COMMON TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY CAUSES
A traumatic brain injury may result in severe cognitive impairment and potentially permanent physical disabilities. Injuries affecting the brain are most often divided into two separate categories recognized as either diffuse or focal lesions. Diffuse lesions are identified as the presence of bleeding or bruising within the skull as a result of a forceful collision between brain and skull interior.
These particular lesions are often the result of automobile accidents. Focal lesions are life threatening medical conditions that may be caused by a forceful blow to the head resulting in internal hemorrhaging, causing cerebral contusions and hematomas. Both diffuse and focal lesions are extremely serious traumatic brain injuries that should be treated immediately.
In clinical terms, they may be recognized as:
-A Fractured Skull
-Diffuse Axonal Injuries
-An Intracerebral Hemorrhage
-A Subdural Hematoma
-An Epidural Hematoma
