Özet

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common causes of death among trauma patients. Earlier prediction of possible poor neurological outcomes, even upon admission to the emergency department, may help to guide treatment. The aim of this prospective study was to assess the predictive value of plasma copeptin levels for early morbidity and mortality in patients with isolated TBI.
