TBI severity is not a strong predictor of health-related quality of life. a TBI severity was weakly correlated with the QOLIBRI total score (p = 0.04; adjusted R2 = 0.02). b The QOLIBRI questionnaire can be used to distinguish two major key aspects in life, satisfaction (obtained by merging the scales cognition, self, daily life & autonomy, and social relationships) and restrictions (obtained by merging the scales emotions and physical problems). TBI was weakly correlated with satisfaction (p = 0.03, adjusted R2 = 0.1), daily life & autonomy (p = 0.03; adjusted R2 = 0.09), and cognition (p = 0.05; adjusted R2 = 0.05). In contrast, TBI severity was not correlated with restrictions (p = 0.31; adjusted R2 = 0.08). TBI severity was poorly documented in the medical records of 51 patients (38%); thus, TBI severity was not classified in these 51 patients. GCS: Glasgow Coma Scale
