DUBLIN, Feb 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Traumatic Brain Injury Forecast in 21 Major Markets 2016-2026" report to their offering.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) or acquired brain injury is a non-specific term describing blunt, penetrating or blast injuries to the brain. Injury can be focal or diffuse. Focal TBI tends to be caused by sudden contact (e.g. blow to the head) whereas diffuse TBI suggests an acceleration / deceleration event (e.g. motor vehicle accident). TBI does not include brain injury which develops as the result of a direct underlying condition which damages the brain (e.g. tumours).
This report provides the current Incident population for Traumatic Brain Injury across 21 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Poland, Turkey, Brazil, Japan, China, India, Australia and South Africa) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current Incidence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
Providing a value-added level of insight from the analysis team, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of Traumatic Brain Injury have been quantified and presented alongside the overall incidence figures.
