Medically reviewed by Drugs. Last updated on Jul 22, Trauma to the head can cause several types of head and brain injuries, also called traumatic brain injury TBI. Problems from head injury include:. Skull fracture — A skull fracture is a crack or break in one of the skull's bones. In some cases, the skull is dented inward so that fragments of shattered bone are pressed against the surface of the brain. This is called a depressed skull fracture. In most cases, a skull fracture causes a bruise contusion on the surface of the brain under the fracture.
Epidural hematoma — This is a very serious form of bleeding that happens when one of the blood vessels under the skull is torn during an injury. Usually the skull is fractured as well. As the injured vessel bleeds, blood collects in the space between the skull and the dura, the outermost of the three membranes that cover the brain. This collection of blood is called a hematoma. The hematoma can expand within the skull and press on the brain, causing death.
Acute subdural hematoma — In this injury, a blood vessel tears, and blood collects between the dura and the surface of the brain.
This can happen when the head is hit or when a sudden stop causes the head to move violently forward and back whiplash. Acute subdural hematoma develops rapidly, most commonly after serious head trauma caused by an assault, car accident or fall.
Chronic subdural hematoma — Unlike the acute form, this type of subdural hematoma usually develops gradually because the bleeding inside the skull is less dramatic, and the hematoma can accumulate in several small, separate episodes of bleeding.
