Neurosurgery, often seen as a smaller specialty among other clinical disciplines, has acquired considerable sociomedical significance on account of the steadily rising number of craniocerebral traumas. In particular, the clinical neurosurgeon is frequently called upon to evaluate damage to the nervous system resulting from craniocerebral trauma. The present study, focusing on the potential sociomedical impact or consequences of the current modes and practices of evaluation, involves a catamnestic investigation of 60 patients who, after isolated craniocerebral trauma, were primarily treated in the Münster Clinic of Neurosurgery, with subsequent medicolegal evaluation of the damage resulting from the trauma.
