BACKGROUND This study aimed to determine whether glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is released after traumatic brain injury (TBI), whether GFAP is related to brain injury severity and outcome after TBI, and whether GFAP is released after multiple trauma without TBI. METHODS This prospective study enrolled 114 patients who had TBI with or without multiple trauma (n = 101) or multiple trauma without TBI (n = 13), as verified by computerized tomography. Daily GFAP measurement began at… CONTINUE READING
