Cranioencephalic Trauma (CET)

Cranioencephalic Trauma (CET) is the consequence of injuries to the skull caused by a variety of traumatic events.

The severity will depend on the degree of trauma suffered and the brain involvement caused.

Different factors have led to an increase in the number of CET cases, although traffic accidents are the main cause.

Over 80% of those affected are young people between 15 and 30 years of age.

If the patient overcomes the acute life-threatening stage, the rehabilitation process of the sequelae caused by the trauma, which may be mild, moderate or severe, should be initiated.

Alcla has the professional resources, space and suitable equipment for rehabilitation according to the patient’s needs and sequelae.

It is worth noting that many of these injuries could be avoided by following traffic regulations and preventive behaviors such as the use of seat belts, helmets (in the case of motorcyclists), respecting maximum speed limits, and avoiding alcohol consumption while driving. It should be highlighted that there is a significant number of pedestrians with brain injuries as a result of traffic accidents.
