Description

Blast ​explosions ​have ​been ​the ​primary ​cause ​of ​morbidity ​and ​mortality ​in ​military ​personnel ​deployed ​to ​Iraq ​and ​Afghanistan. ​ ​In ​addition ​to ​being ​the ​primary ​cause ​of ​traumatic ​burns ​and ​amputations, ​blast ​exposure ​is ​the ​primary ​cause ​of ​combat-related ​posttraumatic ​stress ​disorder ​(PTSD) ​and ​traumatic ​brain ​injury ​(TBI). ​ ​This ​presentation ​will ​review ​the ​symptomatology, ​etiology, ​and ​epidemiology ​of ​PTSD ​and ​TBI ​after ​blast ​exposure. ​ ​It ​will ​also ​review ​the ​research ​opportunities ​at ​UTHSCSA ​and ​UTSA ​to ​examine ​the ​diagnosis, ​prognosis, ​prevention, ​and ​treatment ​of ​PTSD ​and ​TBI ​in ​military ​service ​members ​and ​veterans.
