Between 2000 and 2019 TBI affected over 417,503 service members worldwide, with 88% of those injuries being classified as mild (mTBI), also known as concussion.1 Common sequelae after mTBI include: headache, visual impairment, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorde...

Post-traumatic headaches (PTHs) are associated with mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) and may predict the persistence of concussion symptoms. Altered brain networks implicated in brain injury and the affective components of headache-related pain may und...

Many concussions, the mildest form of TBI, go unreported; so the true incidence of TBI makes it the commonest or second most common neurological condition, next to migraines. A concussion can interfere with the transfer of information across the connecting...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo discuss the treatment of post-traumatic headache (PTH) and how to choose pharmacotherapy based upon known pathophysiology.Recent FindingsPreclinical models of traumatic brain injury are finally revealing some of the mechanisms of PTH, including the significant role that inflammatory neuropeptides like calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) play in the initiation and persistence of symptoms.SummaryTo effectively treat post-traumatic headache (PTH), one needs to understand the pathophysiology behind the initiation and persistence of symptoms. Recent animal models are starting to elucidate these me...

CONCLUSION: The results suggest that current management of mild TBI at Christchurch Hospital needs improvement. Accurate diagnostic coding allows patients to access ACC-funded clinics. The utilisation rates of these clinics confirm that the frequency of specialist follow-up is low, which is in keeping with the international literature. Furthermore, given the strongly predictive nature of post-traumatic amnesia for outcomes, the low rate of A-WPTAS assessment is concerning. These results suggest that a mild TBI protocol is needed to standardise assessment, management and follow-up.PMID:33767477
