A Scoping Review of Registered Clinical Studies on Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion (2000 to 2019).
TLDR
It is suggested that most of the clinical studies are focused on diagnosis and non-pharmacological therapies for patients with mTBI/concussion, and there is a need for consensus on a uniform definition of concussion.
Recent Trends in Youth Concussions: A Brief Report
TLDR
The number of Concussions diagnosed appear to be on the rise with the largest number of concussions being diagnosed in those under the age of 18, and future studies should seek to determine primary causality and the long-term health implications of concussion with or without LOC.
Misdiagnosis of Pediatric Concussions in the Emergency Department: A Retrospective Study.
TLDR
The high rate of concussion misdiagnosis puts into question the usability of current concussion guidelines, their accuracy, and barriers to translation into clinical practice.
Influence of concomitant injuries on post-concussion symptoms after a mild traumatic brain injury – a prospective multicentre cohort study
TLDR
Patients with concomitant injuries have slightly more PCS and seemed to be at higher risk of non-return to their normal activities 90 days, compared to patients without con comitant injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injury in Children

    Advancement and New Understanding in Brain Injury [Working Title]
  • 2021
TLDR
Pediatric TBI is associated with an array of negative outcomes, including impaired cognitive and academic abilities, social impairments, and behavioral problems, and a potential cause of lethal blood loss.
Premature white matter microstructure in female children with a history of concussion
TLDR
It is suggested that concussion in childhood leads to premature white matter maturation in females and that this may be associated with slower processing speed, which may contribute to the enhanced vulnerability to persistent symptoms after concussion in females.
Nurse-Driven Universal Concussion Screening: A Quality Improvement Initiative
TLDR
A pediatric concussion screening tool is simple to administer, applies to all developmental ages, and improves diagnostic capture of traumatic brain injury in pediatric trauma when administered by nurses with support through the electronic medical record.
Post-Concussion Acute Signs and Reliable Cognitive Decline in a Finnish Youth Ice Hockey Sample.
TLDR
The presence of acute loss of consciousness, amnesia, or postural instability may indicate a more severe injury and predict the need for more intensive cognitive follow-up.

Management of concussion and post-concussion syndrome
TLDR
A clinical model is presented to suggest that concussion evolves to become mTBI after PCS has developed, representing a more severe form of brain injury.
Predictors of clinical recovery from concussion: a systematic review
TLDR
There is some evidence that the teenage years, particularly high school, might be the most vulnerable time period for having persistent symptoms—with greater risk for girls than boys.
Update on the Epidemiology of Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
This review will focus on recent findings related to the epidemiology of concussion including definition controversies, incidence, and patterns in the population overall and in the military and athlete populations specifically.
Epidemiology of Head Injuries Focusing on Concussions in Team Contact Sports: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Future research should focus on concussion in women’s contact sports, as there is little evidence available in this area, and methodological deficits are frequent in the current literature, especially regarding sample size and study power.
Concussion guidelines step 1: systematic review of prevalent indicators.
TLDR
A systematic review of the highest-quality literature about concussion to establish an evidence-based foundation from which to derive a definition, diagnostic criteria, and prognostic indicators for concussion is established.
Outcome from mild traumatic brain injury

TLDR
A focus of this review is outcome from mild traumatic brain injury, which is characterized by immediate physiological changes conceptualized as a multilayered neurometabolic cascade in which affected cells typically recover, although under certain circumstances a small number might degenerate and die.
Sport-Related Concussion in Children and Adolescents
TLDR
Recognition and education are paramount, because although proper equipment, sport technique, and adherence to rules of the sport may decrease the incidence or severity of concussions, nothing has been shown to prevent them.
