Materials and Methods: 300 patients who had depressed skull fractures due to various modes of injury were studied. Patients with multiple injuries were not included in this study. Age was no bar for enrollment in our study Results: Factors which seemed to affect recovery of patients include Cause of injury, Duration of impact, gcs at admission and discharge, underlying brain contusions and brain edema affected recovery. Demographic factors did not seem to affect recovery Conclusions: Patients without compound fracture and better gcs during initial resuscitation without brain contusion and edema fared better in our study.
