Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of disability in all regions of the globe. The global incidence rate of TBI is estimated at 200 per 100 000 people per year; however, this rate is uncertain and a likely underestimate. The Injury Expert Group within the Global Burden of Disease 2005 (GBD) Project aims to provide better estimates of the incidence, prevalence and duration of TBI in each of the 21 GBD regions. One of the two inputs into the estimates is a systematic literature review… 
Estimating the global incidence of traumatic brain injury.
The case burden of TBI across World Health Organization regions and World Bank income groups was sought to promote advocacy, understanding, and targeted intervention, and study quality was higher in the high-income countries (HICs) than in the low- and middle- Income countries (LMICs).
A Nationwide Study of Incidence and Mortality Due to Traumatic Brain Injury in Ecuador (2004–2016)
The first recorded epidemiological study of the socio-demographic distribution of TBI in Ecuador to date found that young men were almost 4 times more likely to be hospitalized due to TBI than women of this age.
Traumatic brain injury in Brazil: an epidemiological study and systematic review of the literature.
Overall, the profile of TBI in this center reflects the data from other Brazilian studies, and mild TBI was the most prevalent form and the most common cause of T BI was falls.
Traumatic Brain Injury and the Importance of Neurosurgical Care: 10-year Retrospective Study on Cadavers.
The data analysis shows that the mortality rate at the hospitals without neurosurgical facilities and the mortality at the scene of the accident is the same for traffic brain injuries, and the age has no correlation with the mortality rates.
Investigating nystagmus in patients with traumatic brain injury: A systematic review (1996 - 2016).
There is a growing body of evidence that benign paroxysmal positional vertigo should be considered during the medical examination of all patients suffering from head trauma, and all patients with TBI should undergo visual and vestibular examination.
Predicting Outcomes in Traumatic Brain Injury Using the Glasgow Coma Scale: A Joint Modeling of Longitudinal Measurements and Time to Event
The findings supported the use of the GCS scores in predicting the severity of TBI and patients’ survival by jointly modeling longitudinal data with time-to-event outcomes.
Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment Internationally
The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence and treatment priorities for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) internationally and examine the scope of SLP practice associated with this injury.
Traumatic Brain Injury in Kenya
It is apparent that despite TBI being a pervasive public health problem in Kenya, it has not received due attention in the public and private sectors as evidenced by a serious lack of post-acute rehabilitation services for people with TBIs.
