The aim of this study was to determine the association between sexuality following TBI and demographic, injury-related, and postinjury variables (age, gender, time since injury, posttraumatic amnesia duration, independence in activities of daily activities (ADL), antidepressant use, depression, and self-esteem).
Participants included 986 individuals with predominantly moderate to severe TBI, who completed the Brain Injury Questionnaire of Sexuality (BIQS), the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and an ADL assessment on 1 or more occasions, providing a total of 1673 assessments across 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, and 20 years postinjury.
