view that TBI is one of the most serious consequences of falling and that
a large proportion of TBIs among elderly persons are fall related.1,2 It is unfortunate that currently
the US National Hospital Discharge Survey does not include codes for the underlying
causes of the TBI, because such data would provide important clues for injury

underlying causes, will be available soon, although it will take several years
before time trends can be analyzed.
