Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the correlation between admission Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) in chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH). Methods: 128 consecutive patients (107 men and 21 women) with CSDH were studied and the correlation between GCS on admission and postoperative GOS was determined. Results: GCS and GOS were correlated with a Spearman rank correlation coefficient of 0.557 (p < 0.01). Conclusion: GCS and GOS are well-correlated in CSDH.
