TitleThe relative motion concept of brain injury
AuthorsMcLean AJ, Blumbergs PC, Kloeden CN, Palmer GJ, Ryan GA
Year1990
TypeConference Paper
AbstractRelative motion between the brain and the cranial cavity has been postulated as a cause of injury to the brain and of rupture of the bridging veins. This concept can be examined by comparing the shape of the cranial cavity to the location of lesions on or near the surface of the brain and to the presence of subdural haematmas. The shape of the cranial cavity is recorded by preparing a cast at autopsy. This information is then compared with the results of a neuropathological examination of the brain and with information on the impact to the head derived from investigation of the accident. Four cases are presented to illustrate this procedure.
