[50], Pechadre et al. [38], Temkin et al. 5–6% of early seizures in treated groups against a 14–24% occurrence of seizures in placebo treated groups. In Wohns and Wyler [55] series none of the treated patients had seizures in the first week.

Eighty three patients (¼72%) out of 115 mild cases of TBI (¼44,6% of 258 patients) received the same therapeutic combination of rehabilitative measures. Table 5. 4 Outcome (Tables 6–8) Mean duration of ENNR (phase ‘‘B’’) was 41 days (1–289 days) as it was for post-acute phase ‘‘C’’ (2– 300 days) compared to 80 days (5–841 days) for longlasting phase ‘‘D’’. At the end of ‘‘B’’ the early outcome was classified into 75 out of 100 patients as GOS 1 in 4% (dead), GOS 2 in 2,2%, GOS 3 in 37,5%, GOS 4 in 26,7%, and GOS 5 in 29% as compared with the outcome of 175 out of 258 patients with TBI at the end Table 7.
