Although poorer GOS scores and severe cognitive impairments were typically associated with greater severity of initial injury, relatives reported similar functional problems irrespective of injury severity, supporting the argument that the needs of this group should not be overlooked. Expand
Age and major depression after mild traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Older patients seem to be relatively resilient to major depression shortly after mild TBI, and older patients (age 60-plus) had lower rates of major depression than younger patients. Expand
