The question as to whether mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) results in persisting sequelae over and above those experienced by individuals sustaining general trauma remains controversial. This prospective study aimed to document outcomes 1 week and 3 months post-injury following mTBI assessed in the emergency department (ED) of a major adult trauma center. One hundred and twenty-three patients presenting with uncomplicated mTBI and 100 matched trauma controls completed measures of post… Expand

Paper Mentions

Interventional Clinical Trial
The aim is to evaluate the study design, procedure and measurements in a randomised controlled pilot study.  
ConditionsConcussion, Brain, Traumatic Brain Injury
InterventionBehavioral
Predictors of postconcussive symptoms 3 months after mild traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Managing the anxiety response in vulnerable individuals with mTBI may be important to minimize ongoing sequelae, given the evident influence of both premorbid and concurrent psychiatric problems, especially anxiety, on postinjury symptoms. Expand
Long-term follow-up of patients with mild traumatic brain injury: a mixed-method study.
TLDR
The interviews revealed that some patients still had disabling post-concussion symptoms and consequences in many areas of life 11 years after the injury event, and this needs to be taken into account by healthcare professionals and society in general when dealing with people who have undergone mild traumatic brain injury. Expand
LONG-TERM FOLLOW-UP OF PATIENTS WITH MILD TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY : A MIXED-METHODS STUDY
Objective: To characterize the long-term consequences of mild traumatic brain injury regarding post-concussion symptoms, post-traumatic stress, and quality of life; and to investigate differencesExpand
Persistent symptoms and activity changes three months after mild traumatic brain injury
TLDR
There is a small, but clinically significant, subgroup of patients who continue to experience symptoms three-month post-mTBI, which has the potential to adversely affect an individual's ability to participate in daily occupation and return to work. Expand
Factors associated with persistent post-concussion symptoms following mild traumatic brain injury in adults.
TLDR
It is confirmed that loss of consciousness and pre-injury psychological issues are associated with persistent symptom reporting, and not receiving injury information in the emergency department may also negatively influence symptom reporting. Expand
Postconcussive Symptoms Over the First 14 Days After Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: An Experience Sampling Study
TLDR
Patients with HI, regardless of whether they meet the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicines definition of mTBI, have higher odds of typical PCS immediately postinjury, but faster rates of recovery than TCs. Expand
Subacute posttraumatic complaints and psychological distress in trauma patients with or without mild traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
A mental distress factor consisting of both somatic and cognitive complaints proved to be most discriminating and showed high correlations with anxiety and depression. Expand
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) and chronic cognitive impairment: A scoping review
TLDR
Results indicate that, in contrast to the prevailing view that most symptoms of concussion are resolved within 3 months post-injury, approximately half of individuals with a single mTBI demonstrate long-term cognitive impairment. Expand
Comparison of long-term outcomes following traumatic injury: what is the unique experience for those with brain injury compared with orthopaedic injury?
TLDR
Comparing self-reported outcomes at 5-10 years post-injury for those with TBI, TOI, and uninjured controls has implications for managing risks associated with these injury groups and tailoring rehabilitation to improve long-term outcomes. Expand
Assessment and management of patients at risk for persisting disability after mild traumatic brain injury
TLDR
An early intervention to patients at risk for persisting disability had no effect on symptoms, activity, participation or quality of life and some support for the suggested value of assessing different aspects of fatigue have been found. Expand

Mild traumatic brain injury does not predict acute postconcussion syndrome
TLDR
There is a high rate of acute PCS in both mTBI and non-brain injured trauma patients, and the use of the term PCS may be misleading as it incorrectly suggests that the basis of PCS is a brain injury. Expand
Factors influencing outcome following mild traumatic brain injury in adults
TLDR
Outcome in adults with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) at 1 week and 3 months postinjury is investigated and a range of factors appear to be associated with outcome. Expand
Long-term neuropsychological outcomes following mild traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Results show that MTBI can have adverse long-term neuropsychological outcomes on subtle aspects of complex attention and working memory in a nonreferred community-dwelling sample of male veterans. Expand
Emergency department assessment of mild traumatic brain injury and prediction of post-concussion symptoms at one month post injury.
TLDR
It is suggested that a combination of variables assessable in the ED may be useful in predicting which individuals will suffer persistent post-concussion problems. Expand
Factors moderating neuropsychological outcomes following mild traumatic brain injury: A meta-analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis of the relevant literature was conducted to determine the impact of MTBI across nine cognitive domains, finding that litigation was associated with stable or worsening of cognitive functioning over time. Expand
Changes of cognitive functioning following mild traumatic brain injury over a 3-month period
TLDR
Findings suggest that attention dysfunction is noticeable immediately following a mild TBI, and different attention functions appear to recover at a different pace over time, suggesting that the condition may have a differential impact on the different sub-types of attention. Expand
Cognitive functioning and postconcussive symptoms in trauma patients with and without mild TBI.
TLDR
Cognitive performance and symptom complaints of 37 hospitalized MTBI subjects were compared to those of 39 hospitalized trauma subjects, averaging 4.5 days postinjury, and revealed that cognitive performance was unrelated to pain severity and emotional distress. Expand
Neurocognitive function of emergency department patients with mild traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Compared with the non-head-injured patients, ED mild traumatic brain injury patients demonstrated subtle but discernible neurocognitive deficits. Expand
The association between the postconcussion symptoms and clinical outcomes for patients with mild traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The results show that PCS during the disease course and the relationship between PCS and clinical outcome can be systematically evaluated, and different postconcussion symptom domains should be monitored while the disease is progressing. Expand
Prognosis for mild traumatic brain injury: results of the WHO Collaborating Centre Task Force on Mild Traumatic Brain Injury.
TLDR
There was consistent and methodologically sound evidence that children's prognosis after mild traumatic brain injury is good, with quick resolution of symptoms and little evidence of residual cognitive, behavioural or academic deficits. Expand
