Indunesh K, Pradeep TT, Waseem Ahamed TP

Abstract: Introduction: TBI is emerging as a major health burden and problem affecting all countries. Classification based on severity, supplemented by neuro-imaging has significantly advanced our knowledge. Prognostic models are necessary to predict clinical outcome in cases of TBI. Aim of study: To identify and analyse strong predictors of outcome like GCS, Pupillary reactivity, CT characteristics, Demography and Comorbid conditions. Methodology: 200 TBI patients admitted and who fit into the moderate to severe head injury criteria were analysed. Conclusion: Based on these prognostic variables, probable outcome could be arrived at, thereby enabling us to take suitable decisions regarding the use of appropriate management techniques in order to achieve better outcome in these group of patients.
