Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The most common types of traumatic brain injuries can be put into two categories, open head injury or closed head injury.

Open head brain injuries are the result of some type of object or trauma that penetrates through the skull. Fragments of bone and/or tissue often get forced into the brain as a result. A very hard blow to the head with any object, a gunshot wound, or anything that would pierce the skull would result in an open head injury. Different types of skull fractures are normally the diagnosis after an open head injury, of course severe brain damage is possible as well.

A closed brain injury occurs when sudden movement or trauma causes the brain to knock against the skull. No outside object enters the brain. Hitting your head off the steering wheel following a motor vehicle accident, whiplash, or slips/falls could all result in a closed head brain injury. As with open head injuries, there are different types of closed head injuries as well. Click on the link for more information on closed head injuries.
