The overall mortality rate of 7.5% in this series is similar to more recent studies of FG and substantially lower than historical case series. FGSI score was significantly associated with patient mortality, and length of hospital stay. This scoring tool holds utility in stratifying risks and outcomes. Only 4 of 9 constituent variables of the FGSI were associated with the overall FGSI score, indicating that a simpler FGSI score may prove equally valid and easier to use.
