Surveillance for traumatic brain injury deaths--United States, 1989-1998.

Surveillance for traumatic brain injury deaths--United States, 1989-1998. Data indicate that approximately 50,000 U.S. residents die as a result of traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually. Survivors of TBI are often left with neuropsychologic impairments that result in disabilities affecting work or social activity. During 1979-1992, TBI-related death rates declined 22%, from 24.6 to 19.3 deaths/100,000 population. This report describes the epidemiology and trends in TBI-related mortality during 1989-1998. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Morbidity and mortality weekly report.
