Objective: Shearing injury (SI) is a known predictor for poor outcome in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). In the subset of severely injured patients, who underwent decompressive craniectomy (DC), the role of SI on outcome is unknown. We therefore analyzed the occurrence of DAI and its impact[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
