Abstract [en]

The meninges are membranous tissues that are pivotal in maintaining homeostasis of the central nervous system. Despite the importance of the cranial meninges in nervous system physiology and in head injury mechanics, our knowledge of the tissues' mechanical behavior and structural composition is limited. This systematic review analyzes the existing literature on the mechanical properties of the meningeal tissues. Publications were identified from a search of Scopus, Academic Search Complete, and Web of Science and screened for eligibility according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines. The review details the wide range of testing techniques employed to date and the significant variability in the observed experimental findings. Our findings identify many gaps in the current literature that can serve as a guide for future work for meningeal mechanics investigators. The review identifies no peer-reviewed mechanical data on the falx and tentorium tissues, both of which have been identified as key structures in influencing brain injury mechanics. A dearth of mechanical data for the pia-arachnoid complex also was identified (no experimental mechanics studies on the human pia-arachnoid complex were identified), which is desirable for biofidelic modeling of human head injuries. Finally, this review provides recommendations on how experiments can be conducted to allow for standardization of test methodologies, enabling simplified comparisons and conclusions on meningeal mechanics.
