Traumatic Brain Injury in Young Children

Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) have been previously discussed in the pediatric age group. There is special consideration that must be given to infants and toddlers (age 0-3 years). This is an extremely vulnerable population. Falls, automobile accidents and child abuse are major causes of head injury in young children. Young children with head… Continue Reading


Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Seizures

There is a common association between Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and seizures. Seizures can occur soon after a head injury or months (or even years later). If a patient has more than one seizure, the condition is labeled post-traumatic epilepsy and it carries a worse prognosis. What exactly is a seizure? The public is aware… Continue Reading


Traumatic Brain Injury and The Ruptured Globe

The vast majority of the information presented in this blog describes head injury and concussion’s impact on visual function. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can disturb eyesight independent of damage to the eyeball. The close connection between the eye and brain has been highlighted. However, there are instances where the eyeball itself can be injured directly.… Continue Reading


Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Children

September 4, 2018: JAMA Pediatrics (Journal of the American Medical Association, Pediatrics) publishes new guidelines on evaluation of mild traumatic brain injury in children. One purpose of this blog is to provide up-to-date expert information on Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The reader of this blog can refer directly to this material as it appears on-line,… Continue Reading


Traumatic Brain Injury, Insomnia, and the Eyes

Approximately 30% of patients with significant head trauma will complain of a significant disruption of sleep.

Automobile accidents can cause direct trauma to the face. In particular, airbag deployment can prevent fatal brain injury but often cause eye injuries. This has been documented in… Continue Reading


Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

I have previously addressed a variety of brain imaging technologies useful in the diagnosis traumatic brain injury (TBI). Standard CT scans and MRI scans of the brain have significant limitations. Single photon emission computed tomography ( SPECT) can measure functional abnormalities of the brain by assessing cerebral blood flow. Standard studies take static pictures and… Continue Reading
