CTE, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy due to failure to diagnose and treat Traumatic Brain Injury

“But we may be able to learn that early treatment of the initial acute [brain] injury may avoid this cascade from brain injury to CTE.”

As a civilian contractor you will be denied early treatment by the defense base act insurance company.

WASHINGTON — Almost a quarter million American troops diagnosed with traumatic brain injury are at risk of developing a degenerative disease that causes bursts of anger and depression and can lead to memory loss, difficulty walking and speaking, paranoia and suicide, according to military researchers.

At present, medical officials cannot diagnose or prevent the disease, called Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, and there is no known treatment for it, said Army Col. Dallas Hack, director of the Army’s Combat Casualty Care Research Program.

But researchers are hot on the trail of new procedures to detect and diagnose the disease, and there is hope that early detection of brain injury among troops exposed to blasts from improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan could prevent them from falling victim to CTE.

“We don’t fully understand the incidence of CTE with the occurrence of traumatic brain injury,” said Air Force Lt. Col. Randall McCafferty, chief of neurosurgery at the San Antonio Military Medical Center. “But we may be able to learn that early treatment of the initial acute [brain] injury may avoid this cascade from brain injury to CTE.”

Defense Base Act Insurance Company CNA hires Double Agent to spy on Injured War Zone Contractors

South African Injured Contractors want to know:

“Since when is it ok for honest injured contractors suffering from “TBI” AND “PTSD” plus others who lost legs and arms and even eyes to be investigated by criminals and people who served terrorist dictators????

According to those SA Injured Contractors we’ve spoken with this double agent has promised them

“the world, the stars and the moon, even telling them that he will see that they get better and higher amounts for mileage traveled than what CNA are currently paying”.

All an attempt to placate them while CNA continues to screw them over.

Well at least they hired a professional liar this time.
