In modern neurorehabilitation practice there is a trend of common approach to the content of rehabilitation of patients with various etiopathogenic features of brain damage. The urgency of the problem of medical and social rehabilitation of patients with brain injury is associated with a high prevalence of this pathology and medical and social uncertainty of the prognosis. The authors of the publications cited in the survey have considered the rehabilitation prognosis and predictors of disability in patients with traumatic brain injury. According to most authors' opinions, the effects of traumatic brain injury even of mild degree can be shown for the first time some years later, while at the same time it is not always adequate to the severity of the acute period of craniocerebral trauma and often having a progradi-ent course. The review presents the results of studies showing that significant progress in the recovery of patients with traumatic brain injury is possible by using an integrated approach, a coordinated multidisciplinary action aimed at the patient and his family, as well as the rehabilitation period of the sequence, starting with early intensive and ending late recovery period. Medical and Social Rehabilitation of patients after traumatic brain injury, in the current context — a multidisciplinary challenge, the effectiveness of regulation is determined by the coordination and solution of medical, social, psychological and organizational tasks.
