The association of risk factors was evaluated with the same events (incidence, complications and mortality). Were identified too the risk factors susceptible of being intervened and the clinical discoveries were correlated with the discoveries of pathological anatomy found in the cadavers, and proceeded to made a list of the possible errors in the medical attention suggested by the autopsy studies. Of a total of 2,084 persons that arrived alive and received medical attention in the urgency service of the San Vincent of Paul University Hospital (HSVP) during the period understood between august 21 and december 12 of 1998, 422 were chosen (20.2%) with closed skull trauma.
