    Background & Aim: Due to the importance of assessing outcome evaluation in traumatic patients, the present study was undertaken to correct the therapeutic managements. Patients & Methods: Between 23 July 2003 and 23 May 2004 traumatic patients in Hazrat Rasoul Hospital were studied prospectively. Demographic variables of patients including age, sex, type of trauma, mechanism of injury, RTS(Revised Trauma Score) and ISS(Injury Severity Score) were compared with standard studies. Length of stay(LOS) and mortality rate were used for outcome evaluation. Results: It was found out that trauma had high frequency in young men with motorcycle accident. The mean length of stay for these patients was 8.5 days versus 9.7 days in MTOS(Major Trauma Outcome Study). The mortality rate(P<0.005) was apparently less than the mortality rate in MTOS study(4.1 versus 9) that can be due to low ISS in the patients and dysfunction of prehospital system in transferring traumatic patients. Conclusion: Outcome evaluation with W and Z score was 2.9 which means that out of each 100 patients in this study 2.9 people died above the MTOS standard.
