Table 1 Clinical characteristics of the patient population after multiple injury

From: Early down-regulation of the pro-inflammatory potential of monocytes is correlated to organ dysfunction in patients after severe multiple injury: a cohort study

IX 34 3 5 3 disabled by missing right upper extremity, no neurological deficits moderate HI, pulmonary contusion, cervical spine fx, traumatic amputation in the upper extremity shoulder joint, open book pelvic fx, multiple fx lower extremities
X 36 5 8 5 disabled by significant neurological deficits due to the brain injury severe HI, intracerebral bleeding, bilateral pulmonary contusion, sinistral serial rib fx C2-10, hemopneumothorax, spleen hematoma
XI 34 6 8 4 complete recovery thoracic trauma, cardiac contusion, blunt abdominal trauma, liver rupture, renal contusion, cervical spine fx, bilateral fx upper extremities
XII 41 4 6 3 disabled by significant neurological deficits due to the brain injury moderate HI, cranial fx (Le fort III), pulmonary contusion, serial rib fx, pelvic fx, multiple open fx lower extremities

  1. Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) score was calculated on admission (adm), 24 hours, and 72 hours after injury. NISS = New Injury Severity Score; MOF = multiple organ failure; HI = head injury; fx = fracture.
