HealthDay (5/12, Preidt) reports, “People who’ve had a major traumatic brain injury (TBI) may be at increased risk for dementia,” investigators concluded after analyzing “20 years of data collected from nearly 32,000 people in Finland who completed health surveys every five years,” then comparing those data “with national health registries.” The study revealed that “people with major TBI were 1.5 times more likely to develop dementia than those without a TBI.” For study purposes, “a major TBI was defined as bleeding in the brain and a hospital stay of three or more days.” The findings were published online in the journal Neurology.
