Travmatik beyin hasarı sonrası psikiyatrik belirtiler

En sık trafik kazaları ve düşmelerin neden olduğu travmatik beyin hasarı (TBH), neden olduğu yeti yetiminin yanı sıra, psikiyatrik morbiditede de artışa yol açmaktadır. TBH nedeniyle hastaneye yatırılan 57 hasta ve 48 hastadan oluşan kontrol grubu psikiyatrik değerlendirmenin yanı sıra, SCID-P, Mini Mental Muayene, Genel İşlevsellik Değerlendirme Ölçeği, Beck Depresyon Ölçeği (BDÖ) ve SCL-90-R belirti tarama listesi ile değerlendirilmiştir. Hastalar SCL-90-R somatizasyon alt ölçeği dışında tüm değerlendirmelerde kontrol grubuna göre anlamlı düzeyde daha düşük puanlar almıştır. BDÖ ile yapılan değerlendirmede TBH grubunda %26.3 oranında klinik düzeyde depresyon görülürken, kontrol grubunda %4.2 belirlenmiştir (p

Psychiatric symptoms after traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI), most frequently caused by traffic accidents and falls, is a cause of disability, as well as increasing the psychiatric morbidity. Fifty-eight patients hospitalised for TBI and 48 controls were evaluated by SCID-P, Mini Mental Examination, Beck Depression Scale (BDS) and SCL-90-R check-list, as well as the psychiatric assessment. The patients score worse in all psychiatric tests except the somatization sub-scale of the SCL-90-R symptom checklist, compared to the control group. BDS findings showed that 26.3% of the patients were clinically depressed while only 4.2% were depressed in the control group (p<0.05). The findings suggest that it is important to assess the TBI patients especially for mood disorders.
