Description:

Traumatisms, in general, result in high costs for health systems worldwide. They consist of the leading cause of death in young adults, primarily males. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) represents good part of
this spending, reaching globally signifiant mortality rate, around 1.5 million victims a year.Only in the United States (US) attendances related to traumatic brain injuries in emergency departments revolve
around 1.35 million annually, plus about 275,000 hospitalizations and 52,000 deaths. In Brazil, only in 2012 was spent over one billion dollars with hospitalizations related to external causes, including TBI.
