Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury is always serious because it has the potential to lead to long-term complications. The neurons of the brain do not regenerate like other parts of the body, making many of the functional and cognitive deficits permanent. On the other hand, the human body is resilient, and even in cases involving a severe TBI, some functional recovery might be possible. This was demonstrated following a catastrophic traumatic brain injury that occurred in a motorcycle accident. A young man made a remarkable, meaningful recovery. The crash was published as a case report in the American Journal of Case Reports.
