TitleNeuropathological aspects of head injury
AuthorsBlumbergs PC
Year1988
TypeConference Paper
AbstractThe NH&MRC Road Accident Research Unit is engaged currently in a detailed descriptive neuropathological study of the many types and combinations of lesions that occur in the brains of fatal head injuries sustained in road traffic accidents. Mechanisms of injury production are investigated by the correlation of accident reconstruction data with the pathological findings. Some of the more common types of brain injury are briefly described with particular attention given to diffuse axonal injury and patterns of vascular damage.
