Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of hospitalizations and death among children and adolescents and therefore represents a major public health problem (Langlois et al. 2006). Pediatric TBI results in substantial medical and neurobehavioral morbidity (McLean et al. 1995; Slomine et al. 2006; Yeates 2000).
