Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is a brain injury that is caused by events after birth.

ABI does not include damage to the brain resulting from neurodegenerative disorders, nor does it include genetic or congenital disorders.

There are two types of ABI: traumatic and non-traumatic.

Non-Traumatic Brain Injury (NTBI) is sometimes used synonymously with ABI.
