Rates of Major Depressive Disorder and Clinical Outcomes Following Traumatic Brain Injury

A majority of patients hospitalized for traumatic brain injury demonstrated major depressive disorder (MDD) one year after the injury, according to this study. High rates of depression were associated with a history of MDD and was an independent predictor of lower health-related quality of life, particularly related to mobility, performance of usual activities, pain and discomfort and role functioning.
