My father suffered a stroke 50 days ago.
He arrived at the hospital unconscious after 40 minutes.
He was diagnosed with Glasgow coma scale level 3.
He had CT after 4 hours and dr. has not seen any injuries.
At 80 hours was repeated the CT and again it revealed no brain damage.
At 2 weeks dr. made tracheostomy.
MRI was performed after 15 days and dad was diagnosed with bilateral thalamic ischemic stroke with extension to the brain penduculi in sub acute stage. Cerebral atrophy and right mastoiditis.
Additionally, motor impairment (paralysis of hands and feet) associated with total disorders of consciousness.
Current state: Sometimes he seems consciously, move his eyes and slightly head to one who speaks. The right hand can keep the bar for about 1 minute but his left hand he shakes merely.
What are his chances of recovery of consciousness after this severe brain injury?
