Impairments in cerebral autoregulation is associated with postural control in sports related concussion - Reichow A, McCredie M, Stokes M, Bell K, Purkayastha S.

Global and regional deficits in cerebral blood flow are reported with concussions, a major public health concern, with approximately 3.8 million incidences occurring annually in the United States alone. Recent studies have identified an increased risk of m...

In the last decade there has been an increasing awareness that traumatic brain injury (TBI) and concussion substantially increases risk for developing psychiatric disorders. Even mild TBI increases risk for depression and anxiety disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by 2-3 fold, predisposing patients to further functional impairment. This strong epidemiological link supports examination of potential mechanisms driving neuropsychiatric symptom development after TBI. One potential mechanism for increased neuropsychiatric symptoms after TBI is via inflammatory processes, as CNS inflammation can last years after initial injury.

Conclusions: Using a likelihood heuristic with 80% power and 5% alpha level, there is very strong likelihood evidence that female sex, prior concussion history, and retrograde amnesia are associated with worse clinical outcome following sport-related concussion. The strength of likelihood evidence that prognostic factors are associated with worse clinical outcome reduces when statistical power is lower and alpha level is inflated.
