Tissue tear hemorrhages(TTHs) have been thought to be visible manifestation of more severe forms of diffuse axonal injury and thus portend a poor prognsis. Computed tomographic scans and magnetic resonance images from 1076 patients with closed head injuries were reviewed;30(3.5%) cases were found to have TTHs. The authors investigated the clinical spectrum of TTHs. No direct relationship could e established between presence of TTHs and the severity and/or outcome from the head injury in this group. Magnetic resonance imaging provided more sensitive information than computed tomography in evaluating TTHs.
Key Words: Tissue tear hemorrhages; Diffuse axonal injury; Computed tomography; Magnetic resonance imaging
