Abnormal Bone Growth
Heterotopic ossification, or abnormal bone growth, is a severe complication that might develop following a traumatic brain injury. According to a recently published research, about 20 percent of patients who suffer an injury of their central nervous system will develop some degree of abnormal bone formation. This can lead to several clinical problems, which can include motor and sensory functions, and overall lower quality of life. Because of this, it is important for everyone to understand what heterotopic ossification is, the problems that accompany this disorder, and how it is treated.
