Violence collaborative project
Abstract: The U.S. has the highest incidence of penetrating brain injuries of any developed country, with domestic and interpersonal violence the leading cause of these injuries. The mortality rate from gunshot wounds to the brain is now at about 35%, leaving a large population of survivors of violent injuries with potentially devastating, lifelong disabilities. While the direct effects of PBI often result in costly and severe disability, the psychological stress associated with a traumatic event may further complicate and retard functional recovery. Despite the serious consequences, the costs and long-term outcomes of PBI have not been systematically studied. The purpose of our study is to identify the costs and long-term of PBI and to examine the... more

Functional Outcome Following Penetrating Brain Injury: The Aftermath of Violence
Abstract: The U.S. has the highest incidence of penetrating brain injury due to violence of any developed country. While the direct effects of penetrating brain injury often result in costly and severe disability, the psychological stress associated with a traumatic event may further complicate and retard functional recovery. The incidence of PTSD was 33% in one sample of brain injury survivors. It may be even higher following penetrating injury due to the often violent etiology. A prospective follow-up study of persons with penetrating and closed brain injuries is proposed to evaluate the effect of violent injury etiology on outcome with a particular focus on the incidence and consequence of having PTSD symptoms following penetrating or closed... more
