This study evaluates an automated eye-tracking algorithm as a biomarker for concussion as defined by its symptoms and the clinical signs of convergence insufficiency and accommodation dysfunction in a pediatric population. Design: Cross-sectional case–control study. Setting: Primary care. Patients: Concussed children (N = 56; mean age = 13 years), evaluated at a mean of 22-week post-injury, compared with 83 uninjured controls. Independent Variables: Metrics comparing velocity and conjugacy of eye movements over time were obtained and were compared with the correlation between Acute Concussion Evaluation (...

Authors: MacGregor AJ, Joseph AR, Dougherty AL Abstract INTRODUCTION: Tinnitus is an auditory problem frequently reported by military personnel and is currently responsible for 1 billion dollars annually in disability compensation. Recent military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan saw high levels of combat exposure coupled with a surge in blast weaponry, both of which can adversely affect hearing. The present study explored the prevalence of tinnitus and the association with self-rated health among military personnel injured during combat deployment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 1,026 U.S. military personn...

AbstractBackgroundAn improved understanding of the trajectory of recovery after mild traumatic brain injury is important to be able to understand individual patient outcomes, for longitudinal patient care and to aid the design of clinical trials.ObjectiveTo explore changes in health, well-being and cognition over the 2  years following mTBI using latent growth curve (LGC) modelling.MethodsSixty-one adults with mTBI presenting to a UK Major Trauma Centre completed comprehensive longitudinal assessment at up to five time points after injury: 2  weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year and 2 years.Resul...

Abstract CONTEXT: In the absence of baseline testing, normative data may be used to interpret postconcussion scores on the clinical reaction-time test (RTclin). However, to provide normative data, we must understand the performance factors associated with baseline testing. OBJECTIVE: To explore performance factors associated with baseline RTclin from among candidate variables representing demographics, medical and concussion history, self-reported symptoms, sleep, and sport-related features. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Clinical setting (eg, athletic training room). PATIENTS OR OTHER...
