Influence of concussion education exposure on concussion-related educational targets and self-reported concussion disclosure among first-year service academy cadets - Register-Mihalik JK, Kay MC, Kerr ZY, Peck KY, Houston MN, Gildner P, Svoboda SJ, Marshall SW, Cameron KL.

INTRODUCTION: Concussion disclosure is often essential for military personnel to receive appropriate care following concussive injury. Concussion-related education and training may play a role in improving disclosure and recognition among peers, allowing f...

Conclusions: The MLB's rule limiting home plate collisions significantly reduced the number of concussions suffered by MLB catchers.Clinical Relevance: This study provides important insight regarding patterns and injury rates in professional baseball catchers and can serve as a benchmark for discussion about injury prevention in players of this position. To our knowledge, no other study has focused on rule 7.13 and its effect on concussion rates in MLB catchers. PMID: 31961751 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Understanding stakeholder's perspectives on research engagement is an important issue that may serve to improve research quality. There may be unique nuances at play with injury-specific stakeholders that require researchers to consider a balance between reducing inhibitors while supporting enablers. These findings are preliminary and limited. Nevertheless, they provide needed insight and guidance for ongoing investigation regarding improvement of stakeholder engagement in concussion research.

ConclusionsAlthough activity level could not be assessed, there are increased odds of ACL injury after concussion in a general population. Based on the evidence of increased odds of musculoskeletal injury after concussion, standard clinical assessments should consider concussion symptom resolution as well as assessment of neuromuscular factors associated with risk of injuries.

(Virginia Tech) 'These are the first biomechanical data characterizing concussion risk in kids,' said Steve Rowson, an associate professor of biomedical engineering and mechanics and the director of the Virginia Tech Helmet Lab. 'Children aren't just scaled-down adults: Differences in anatomy and physiology, like head-neck proportions and brain development, contribute to differences in tolerance to head impact. These results can lead to data-driven interventions to reduce risk in youth sports.'

This study examined the association between signal alterations on diffusion tensor imaging following clinical recovery of sport-related concussion in athletes with and without a subsequent second concussion.Methods: Average mean diffusivity (MD) was calculated in a region of interest (ROI) in which concussed athletes (n = 82) showed significantly elevated MD acutely after injury (
