Paediatric brain injury: outcomes and predictors of long-term prognosis
Acquired brain injury is the leading cause of death and neurologic disability in children after infancy. In the immature brain, there is a complex interaction between recovery and ongoing development making children more vulnerable than adults despite the advantage of early neuroplasticity. Relatively good motor outcomes may obscure cognitive and behavioural problems, worsening the child’s quality of life and long term educational attainment. Predicting long term outcomes is challenging due to the heterogeneity of injury and non-injury factors.
