Presenting Characteristics Associated With Outcome in Children With Severe TBI

Presenting Characteristics Associated With Outcome in Children With Severe TBI

Severe traumatic brain injury is a clinically heterogeneous disease that can be accompanied by a range of neurologic impairment and a variety of injury patterns at presentation. This secondary analysis of prospectively collected data identifies several characteristics associated with outcome among children with severe traumatic brain injury. Future, larger trials are needed to better characterize phenotypes within this population. Baseline, clinical, and CT characteristics of patients (n = 77) were examined for association with mortality and outcome, as measured by the Glasgow Outcome Scale—Extended Pediatric Revision 3 months after traumatic brain injury.
