Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of disability worldwide. Each year 1.7 million new TBIs occur in the United States, and it is also considered a signature injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Despite the relatively high incidence-within both civilian and military populations-the diagnosis and treatment, particularly of mild TBI/concussion, remains an inexact science. Traumatic Brain Injury: A Clinician's Guide to Diagnosis, Management, and Rehabilitation is a concise guide designed for neurologists, primary care, and sports physicians and other medical providers, psychologists and neuropsychologists, and athletic trainers who may evaluate and care for patients with TBI. The book features summaries of the most pertinent areas of diagnosis and therapy, which can be readily accessed by the busy clinician/professional. In addition, the book's treatment algorithms provide a highly practical reference to cutting edge therapies. A superb contribution to the literature, Traumatic Brain Injury: A Clinician's Guide to Diagnosis, Management, and Rehabilitation offers a well-designed, well-written, useful resource for all providers who treat patients with TBI.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This collection of chapter-length essays is organized as a reference for medical professionals who need to stay up to speed on issues and treatments related to traumatic brain injury (TBI). ... Each chapter begins with its own abstract and further introduction. ... An appendix provides relevant codes from the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9-CM). The contributors are neurologists and neurosurgeons in academia, the military, and privately." (Reference & Research Book News, June, 2013)

"Edited by a military neurologist who highlights the recent military experience with concussive injuries, this book is a review of the current literature on the management of traumatic brain injury. ... Given the interest in this area because of the focus on returning military veterans and athletes participating in contact sports, this book is well timed. ... This book is a welcome resource for clinicians in many different areas who need to stay abreast of current management principles." (Korwyn Williams, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2012)
