Abstract :

The care of patients with minor head trauma is evolving. No longer is loss of consciousness needed to occur in order to be concerned about the late sequelae of minor head trauma. The CT scan of the head is no longer the predictor of long term outcome. MRI may reveal punctate lesions and EEG may demonstrate focal slowing. There is a higher incidence of psychiatric illness one year after the injury than that found in the general population. Depression, PTSD, substance abuse, panic disorder, generalized anxiety, OCD, personality disorders and bipolar disorder & schizophrenia can occur as a result of TBI. The treatment of athletes with minor TBI is also evolving with graded return to plan. This presentation will discuss this evolution in diagnosis and treatment of patients with minor TBI and its relationship to psychiatric illness.
