Hafiz, M., Saanin, S., Ningsih, H. 2021. Comparison of Neutrophil Lymphocyte Ratio in Traumatic Head Injury Patients With and Without Intracranial Hemorrhage at Dr. M. Djamil Hospital. Indonesian Journal of Neurosurgery 4(1). DOI:10.15562/ijn.v4i1.169


Background: Head injuries occur evry 15 seconds worldwide, with patients dying every 12 minutes. The value of the Neutrophil Lymphocyte Ratio (NLR) is a factor that influences the assessment and prognostic value of patients with intracranial hemorrhage and without intracranial hemorrhage in head injury.

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between increased NLR based on severity of head injury patients with or without intracranial hemorrhage.

Methods: This study is a retrospective cross sectional study of head injury patients with hemorrhage and without intracranial hemorrhage who were treated at Dr. M. Djamil Hospital Padang in 2020 from May to December 2020. Data was collected in the Medical Records Department of Dr. M. Djamil Hospital Padang who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria.

Results: The results showed that there was a significant relationship between NLR levels in moderate head injury patients with hemorrhage (14,20) and without intracranial hemorrhage (7,20) (p value = 0.029), whereas in severe head injury it could not be assessed because there was no sample without hemorrhage.

Conclusion: There is an association between increased NLR and intracranial bleeding in moderate head injury patients.
