No biomechanical differences seen between transient, persistent post-concussion symptoms

July 20, 2017

Results from this study indicated none of the biomechanical variables analyzed were statistically significantly different between patients who sustained brain injuries with transient post-concussion symptoms and those with persistent post-concussion symptoms.

Researchers reconstructed 233 falling events from 3,063 pediatric patients with brain injuries that resulted in either transient or persistent post-concussion symptoms. Investigators used force, energy, peak resultant linear and rotational accelerations and maximum principal strain in gray and white matter of the brain to analyze the falling events and the concussions sustained.
