Writing in European Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery, 03/18/2013 Dr. Leitgeb J et al. from the Department of Traumatology Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine, Trauma Hospital ‘‘Lorenz Boehler’’, Vienna, Austria and the Medical University of Vienna discuss the association between score in the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) at intensive care unit (ICU) discharge and the 1–year outcome of patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). The group show that patients with a GCS score <10 at ICU discharge will have a poor chance of achieving a favourable outcome.
