Case Study Presentation
Incident, cause/pathology & effect
Assessment & Treatment
My Case Study
1. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
2. Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
1 million people attend A&E each year following a head injury with many more going unreported and not assessed.
135,000 of these are admitted to hospital.
In the UK it is estimated there are half a million adults living with long-term disabilities as a result of a TBI
85% of these are classed as minor, 10% as moderate, 5% as severe.
M:F ratio is 2-3:1 but this is 5:1 in 15 - 29 years
Pathology of Injury
1. Intracranial Haematoma
2. Cerebral Swelling
3. Tentorial or Tonsillar Herniation
4. Cerebral Ischaemia
1. Cortical Contusions & Lacerations
2. Diffuse Axonal Injuries
The Therapists Role

1. Conservative Management
2. Surgical Management
