A young man sustained a serious head injury in a car accident, but routine brain CT and MRI scans are normal. Your next step?
Experts provide new insights about the challenges of concussion care for pediatric patients, including management, diagnosis, and return to a normal lifestyle.
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is a neurodegenerative disease that is believed to be a consequence of exposure to repetitive head impacts, including concussions and subconcussive injuries.
A study of over 80,000 patients confirmed another strong reason to prevent young people from repetitive head blows.
Causes of concussion include direct trauma, rapid acceleration-deceleration, and blast injury. Dr. Wilner discusses recent literature.
It is often unclear which treatments are most appropriate for the constellation of concussion symptoms. Thus, evidence-based education as well as treatment and management options to facilitate recovery are required.
An experimental device designed to complement a helmet reduces brain slosh during head impact. Can it also prevent a concussion?
Why do you think sports-related concussion rates have increased – growing popularity of sports, improved awareness, better screening and diagnosis?
While Hollywood adapts reality to create a good story, it’s worth fact-checking this movie’s science to better clarify chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
