This study was designed to evaluate both the frequency and the course of impairments, disabilities, and handicaps resulting from trauma.
It was conducted in Aquitaine, France, on a sample of 1005 trauma patients (mean ISS, 10.5+-0.3) in which severe trauma (ISS>25) was rather overrepresented (169 of 1005).
A prospective follow-up of disablement according to the WHO classification was based on medical examinations performed 6 and 12 months after the trauma.
Of 664 survivors reviewed at 6 months, the findings were cross tabulated with Injury Severity Score (ISS) and age.
