Traumatic Brain Injury the Focus of American Headache Society Scientific Conference

d even degenerative brain diseases later.” The symposium, on June 23, will cover “School Issues with Concussion” and “Post-Concussion Headaches” and include world-renown experts on the subject.

IN EARLIER WARS, MANY TBIs WOULD HAVE BEEN FATAL

Modern warfare and high-tech explosives have ushered in a new era of traumatic brain injury among American combat soldiers. The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Centers (DVBIC) estimates there have been more than 178,000 traumatic brain injuries sustained by soldiers in the wars of the last 10 years.

“In earlier wars, such injuries would have been fatal, but now with improvements in protective gear our soldiers are surviving, but often crippled with excruciating headache, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder,” said Alan Finkel, MD, who has written widely on the subject. “Today we have bombs that exert ‘overpressure’ -- waves that come off an explosion at twice the speed of sound and compress everything in their wake without breaching either a soldier’s bone or tissue. But the damage they do to the brain is enormous and unprecedented.”

Dr. Finkel will chair the AHS session that includes discussion of “Military Traumatic Brain Injuries: Mild, Common, and Unique,” “Epidemiology of Military Headache,” and “Treating Military Post-Traumatic Headache.”

Some 500 of the world’s most eminent migraine and headache specialists are expected to attend. This year’s theme, “Planting the Seed for Future Headache Research” will spotlight other areas of current basic and clinical research such as the role of the cortex in migraine, the role of imaging in patients with headache, the latest breaking science emerging from the nation’s leading
