MeierAbstractThere is growing public concern about neurodegenerative changes (e.g., Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) that may occur chronically following clinically apparent and clinically silent (i.e., subconcussive blows) pediatric mild traumatic brain injury (pmTBI). However, there are currently no biomarkers that clinicians can use to objectively diagnose patients or predict those who may struggle to recover. Non-invasive neuroimaging, electrophysiological and neuromodulation biomarkers have promise for providing evidence of the so-called “invisible wounds” of pmTBI. Our systematic review, however, belies that notion, identifying a relative paucity of high-quality, clinically impactful, diagnostic or prognostic biomarker studies in the sub-acute injury phase (36 studies on unique samples in 28 years), with the majority focusing on adolescent pmTBI. Ultimately, well-powered longitudinal studies with appropriate control groups, as well as standardized and clearly-defined inclusion criteria (time post-injury, injury severity and past history) are needed to truly understand the complex pathophysiology that is hypothesized (i.e...
