Abstract

Data on multiple causes of death, as collected and provided by the National Center for Health Statistics, show that of all injury-related deaths, at least 28% involve significant injury to the brain (1). The patients at highest risk for brain injury are between 15 and 24 years of age, with males far more often affected than females.
