Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Postconcussion Syndrome Book Review:

This is the first neuropsychology book to translate exciting findings from the recent explosion of research on sport-related concussion to the broader context of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) and post-concussive syndrome (PCS) in the general population. In addition, it includes a Continuing Education (CE) component administered by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology. Traumatic brain injuries constitute a major global public health problem, but until now, MTBIs, which constitute up to 90 percent of all treated TBIs, have been difficult to evaluate and manage clinically because of the absence of a viable model. Dr. McCrea's book thus provides a welcome evidence base for all clinicians - including psychologists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, rehabilitation medicine physicians, physiatrists, and nurses - involved in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of MTBI, as well as attorneys involved in personal injury litigation and personal injury defense. Each section of the book ends with a helpful summary of the 'Top 10 Conclusions.' Instructions for earning AACN-administered CE credit are included.

Serum Neurofilament Light is Elevated Differentially in Older Adultswith Uncomplicated Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries Book Review:

Background: There is considerable interest in the use of blood biomarkers as diagnostic screening tests for mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). Neurofilament light (NF-L) may have diagnostic and prognostic potential as a blood biomarker for MTBI. Elevated NF-L is associated with several neurological disorders associated with older age, however, which could confound its usefulness as a TBI biomarker. We examined whether NF-L is elevated differentially following uncomplicated MTBI in older adults with pre-injury neurological disorders. Methods: In a case-control study, a sample of 118 adults (mean age=62.3 years, SD=22.5, range=18-100; 52.5% women) presenting to the emergency department (ED) of Tampere University Hospital with an uncomplicated MTBI were enrolled in this study. All had a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 14-15. All participants underwent head CT in the ED and showed no macroscopic evidence of injury. Within 72 hours of injury, blood was collected from participants. The mean time between injury and blood sampling was 8.3 hours (Md=3.5; SD=13.5; IQR=1.9-6.0, range=0.8-67.4, and 90% collected within 19 hours). A sample of 40 orthopedically-injured trauma control subjects recruited from a second ED also were examined. Serum NF-L levels were measured and analyzed using Human Neurology 4-Plex A assay on a HD-1 Single molecule array (Simoa) instrument. Results: A high correlation was found between age and NF-L levels in the total MTBI sample (r=.80), within the subgroups without pre-injury neurological diseases (r=.76) and with pre-injury neurological diseases (r=.68), and in the trauma control subjects (r=.76). Those with MTBIs and pre-injury neurological conditions had higher NF-L levels than those with no pre-injury neurological conditions (p

Neurological Disorders Book Review:

Although there are several gaps in understanding the many issues related to neurological disorders, we know enough to be able to shape effective policy responses to some of the most common. This book describes and discusses the increasing public health impact of common neurological disorders such as dementia, epilepsy, headache disorders, multiple sclerosis, neuroinfections, neurological disorders associated with malnutrition, pain associated with neurological disorders, Parkinson's disease, stroke and traumatic brain injuries. It provides information and advice on public health interventions that may reduce their occurrence and consequences, and offers health professionals and planners the opportunity to assess the burden caused by these disorders. The clear message that emerges is that unless immediate action is taken globally, the neurological burden is likely to become an increasingly serious and unmanageable.
