This study examined the predictive value of variables known early in the course of posttraumatic amnesia (PTA) on length of PTA and functional outcome of acute rehabilitation. Forty patients with traumatic brain injury who had PTA at admission for acute inpatient rehabilitation were included (29 men and 11 women; aged 18-91 years). This article presents the characteristics of the patients who came out of PTA and those who did not emerge during the acute inpatient rehabilitation stay. These data suggest that the location of the lesion (specifically, parietal lobe lesions) and initial cognitive scores are helpful in prognosticating patient trajectories.
