Abstract:
Article discusses the occurrence of violent traumatic brain injury (TBI) in 4 of the Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems (TBIMS) project centers. Twenty six percent of the participants sustained a violent TBI. The incidence was highest among single, unemployed, African American males who may be slightly older than the average TBI patient, with a history of previous TBI. This profile was shown to be a significant predictor of individuals who are most at risk for sustaining violent TBI.
