The disease-specific Graded Prognostic Assessment (ds-GPA) for patients with gastrointestinal (GI) tract cancer brain metastases (BM) suggests Karnofsky Performance Score (KPS) as the only pertinent p...
Many scoring models have been proposed for evaluating level of consciousness in trauma patients. The aim of this study is to compare Glasgow coma scale (GCS) and Full Outline of UnResponsiveness (FOUR...
The aim of our study was an external validation of the extracranial prognostic score predicting survival of patients with brain metastases receiving cranial irradiation on data from a single instituti...
The DECAF score is a simple and effective tool for predicting mortality in patients hospitalized with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD); however, the DECAF score ha...
Prognostic scores help identify patients at a high risk of mortality in exacerbations of COPD. The DECAF score has been reported to perform better than other severity scores in predicting mortality fr...
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious condition with high morbidity and mortality. The Glasgow score alone, assessed at the initial phase, is not enough to determine the prognosis. ...
The SYNTAX-score has been proposed as a tool for risk stratification and guiding revascularization therapy in patients with complex coronary artery disease. There are limited data on the ...
Preliminary data suggest that: 1. a different risk of mortality, as assessed by the Multidimensional Prognostic Indices (MPI), may influence the anticoagulant prescription in older...

To investigate the prognostic performance of the Naples Prognostic Score in gastric cancer patients undergoing surgery
An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.
Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.
A severity of disease classification system designed to measure the severity of disease for patients aged 15 and over admitted to intensive care units.
Postnatal deaths from BIRTH to 365 days after birth in a given population. Postneonatal mortality represents deaths between 28 days and 365 days after birth (as defined by National Center for Health Statistics). Neonatal mortality represents deaths from birth to 27 days after birth.
