A large number of decision rules to assist clinicians with the management of patients following head injury have been described over the past two decades with widespread incorporation in to clinical practice, particularly in adult patients. In children much less published work is available and it is unclear how the few rules that exist compare. This study aimed to systematically identify clinical decision rules for children with minor head injury and compare them for diagnostic accuracy in detecting intracranial injury and injury requiring neurosurgery.
