    Article - En anglais

    We prospectively and retrospectively reviewed a series of 780 patients who presented to the University of Southern California/Los Angeles County Medical Center with a diagnosis of gunshot wound to the brain during an 8-year period.

    Of these, 105 were children ranging in age from 6 months to 17 years.

    Injury were gang related in 76 (72%) children and adolescents.

    Stepwise linear regression analysis was used to formulate a predictive model of outcome in this population.
