BACKGROUND: Identifying patients who may progress to a poor clinical outcome will encourage earlier appropriate therapeutic interventions. Brain edema may contribute to secondary injury in traumatic brain injury (TBI) and thus, may be a useful prognostic indicator. OBJECTIVE: We determined whether the presence of brain edema on the initial computed tomography (CT) scan of TBI patients would predict poor in-hospital outcome. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of all trauma patients with nonpenetrating head trauma at a Level I Trauma Center...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the leading causes of death and disability in children, and progressive hemorrhagic injury (PHI) post TBI is associated with poor outcomes. Therefore, the objective of this study was to develop and validate a prognostic model that uses the information available at admission to determine the likelihood of PHI occurrence after TBI in children. The identified demographic data, cause of injury, clinical predictors on admission, computed tomography scan characteristics, and routine laboratory parameters were collected and used to develop a PHI prognostic model with logistic regression analysis, and the prediction model was validated in 68 children...

The Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and the abbreviated injury score of the head region (HAIS) are validated prognostic factors in traumatic brain injury (TBI). The aim of this study was to compare the prognostic performance of an alternative predictive model including motor GCS, pupillary reactivity, age, HAIS, and presence of multi-trauma for short term mortality with a reference predictive model including motor GCS, pupil reaction and age (IMPACT core model). A secondary analysis of a prospective epidemiological cohort study in Switzerland including patients after severe TBI (HAIS >3) with the outcome death at 14 days was performed...

The comparative studies on grading in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) had several limitations such as the unclear grading of Glasgow Coma Scale 15 with neurological deficits in World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies (WFNS), and the inclusion of systemic disease in Hunt and Hess (H&H) scales. Their differential incremental impacts and optimum cut-off values for unfavourable outcome are unsettled. This is a prospective comparison of prognostic impacts of grading schemes to address these issues. SAH patients were assessed using WFNS, H&H (including systemic disease), modified H&H (sans systemic disease) and followed up with Glasgow Outcome Score (GOS) at 3 months...

BACKGROUND: Although patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) are often unable to undergo treatment after resection of primary tumors, identifying such patients before surgery is not easy. In this study, we evaluated the association among clinicopathological findings, survival outcomes, and ability to undergo multimodal therapy after primary tumor resection in patients with Stage IV CRC. METHODS: We collected clinicopathological findings and preoperative laboratory data, including carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and systemic inflammatory response markers for 92 patients who were treated for Stage IV CRC between 2005 and 2014...

BACKGROUND Cerebellar hemorrhage (CH) has a quite different treatment strategy and prognostic factors compared with supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). The prognostic role of hyperglycemia has been discussed mainly in cases of supratentorial hemorrhage; it remains to be elucidated following CH. We aimed to determine the association of hyperglycemia on admission with 6-month functional outcome in CH patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 77 patients with acute CH between September 2010 and April 2015 in West China Hospital...

BACKGROUNDS: Cancer progression has been associated with host hemostasis system. Whether preoperative plasma hemostasis factors can predict survival in colorectal cancer is quite intriguing. METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study to validate the prognostic significance of three hemostasis parameters - fibrinogen, fibrin degradation products (FDPs) and D-dimer - in non-metastatic colorectal cancer patients treated with curative resection. RESULTS: All three parameters were positively correlated with C reactive protein (CRP) levels and Glasgow Prognostic scores (GPS)...

OBJECTIVE Early radiographic findings in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) have been studied in hopes of better predicting injury severity and outcome. However, prior attempts have generally not considered the various types of intracranial hemorrhage in isolation and have typically not excluded patients with potentially confounding extracranial injuries. Therefore, the authors examined the associations of various radiographic findings with short-term outcome to assess the potential utility of these findings in future prognostic models...
