Traumatic brain injury, posttraumatic stress disorder, and pain diagnoses in OIF/OEF/OND Veterans

David X. Cifu, MD, et al.

We looked at records of 613,391 Veterans from the OIF/OEF/OND wars who used Veterans Health Administration care at least once from fiscal years 2009 to 2011 to identify the prevalence of traumatic brain injury (TBI), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and pain. Of the Veterans, 9.6% were diagnosed with TBI, 29.3% with PTSD, and 40.2% with pain. The full polytrauma expression of all three diagnoses was 6.0%. Of those Veterans with a TBI diagnosis, the majority had a mental health disorder, with nearly half having both PTSD and pain.
