New study looks at veterans with traumatic brain injuries
from San Antonio Business Journal
Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio have conducted a new study involving the medical records of veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars who sustained traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. Among the findings: More than a quarter of the veterans who experienced a mild traumatic brain injury have a greater likelihood of developing epilepsy than individuals without TBIs. The research also shows that veterans who suffered penetrating or severe TBIs have the highest risk of developing epilepsy.
