Recently, accidents which caused a traumatic brain injury (TBI) followed by unconsciousness have also been examined as potential causes of PTSD. The results have been contradictory. It is the aim of the present study to contribute to the understanding of this problem.<br />It was expected that patients who have sustained a TBI could also develop a PTSD. However, this should be less frequent than in patients who have had other traumatic experiences. In addition, the potentially protective role of loss of consciousness was examined, as well as symptom constellations and possible risk factors.<br />46 patients from a neurological rehabilitation clinic were examined in the course of the present study. It could be shown that TBI and PTSD are not mutually exclusive and that loss of consciousness does indeed play a protective role in respect to the development of PTSD.<br />Furthermore, intrusive memories proved to be more frequent in patients who had not been unconscious. This was also the case for the other reexperiencing symptoms though i.e., intense psychological distress and physiological reactivity at exposure to reminders of the traumatic event although no differences between the two groups of patients had been expected for those.<br />Out of the risk factors that were examined in the present study, only having caused the accident oneself, time since the accident and duration of unconsciousness contributed to the extent of posttraumatic symptoms. As predicted, a longer duration of unconsciousness was associated with a lower level of posttraumatic symptoms. With the other two risk factors, the influence was contrary to prediction, however: Having caused the accident as well as a short space of time since the accident were also associated with a lower level of posttraumatic symptoms. 2011-03-25T09:14:31Z deposit-license deu Glaesser, Judith Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Patients with Traumatic Brain Injury
