Abstract

The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the accuracy of the MGAP score and its components in prediction of in-hospital mortality versus the accuracy of the Revised trauma score RTS in Emergency department. This study included 220 patients; all were polytrauma patients subjected to Blunt and Penetrating trauma including head injuries. Mortality rate in low risk group according to MGAP and RTS scores was (8.5% and 1% respectively) it was significant (p=0.01), in moderate risk group (47.7% and 66.3% respectively) it was significant (p=0.04). Meanwhile, in High risk group (96.6% and 100% respectively) it wasn't significant (p=1.000). RTS is better than MGAP in predicting mortality in low risk group, MGAP is better than RTS in intermediate risk group and no difference between both scores in high risk group.
