Rolan T. 13(3). 45 - 50. (Journal Article)


Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a significant problem in both the civilian and military worlds. Although much is understood about the effects of TBI, relatively few diagnostic or therapeutic modalities are available. Currently, TBI treatment is in a primitive phase and other than acute lifesaving interventions, is largely relegated to rehabilitation efforts. This article discusses known aspects of neuronal injury related to blast TBI, as well as a review of the current state of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.
