ABSTRACT
This report is made to investigate clinical outcome in 144 patients with severe head injuries. The result was as follows: 18% made a good recovery, 25% were moderately disabled, 11% were left vegetative, and 44% died. The outcome from severe head injuries seemed to become worse with advancing age. It was observed that the prognosis for head injury in general worsens in the group older than 30 years and the apparent increased morbidity and mortality with a surgical hematoma relate more to age than to the presence of the hematoma.
