Abstract INTRODUCTION: Head injuries are of great relevance for the prognosis of polytrauma patients during acute care. However, knowledge about the impact on the long-term outcome is sparse. Therefore, this study analysed the role of head injuries on the outcome of polytrauma patients more than 10 years after injury in a matched-pair analysis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Out of 620 polytrauma patients with and without head injury, a matched-pair analysis with comparable age, injury severity and gender distribution and a minimum of 10 years follow-up was performed. The outcome and quality-of-life were measured using the Hannover Score for Polytrauma Outcome (HASPOC), Short Form 12 (SF-12), Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) and other parameters. RESULTS: The matched-pair analysis consisted of 125 pairs (age 27.9 ± 1.2 years, ISS 20.0 ± 0.8 [head injury] vs ISS 19.8 ± 0.8 [no head injury]). A significant difference was shown for the GOS Score only (GOS head injury 4.3 ± 0.3 vs no head injury 4.9 ± 0.2, p = 0.01). The psychological outcome was similar in both groups. Both groups reported comparable subjective rehabilitation satisfaction. CONCLUSIONS: Matching pairs of equally injured polytrauma patients of same gender with and without head injury 10 years following trauma indicated significantly worse results in the GOS due to head injury.
