BERLIN, January 4 (Itar-Tass) - Patients with such head injuries as that of motor racing champion Michael Schumacher have 40-45-precent chances to recover, said professor Jean-Francois Payen, the head doctor at the intensive care ward of the hospital in Grenoble, France, where Schumacher remains in a coma after a skiing accident.

The doctor noted however that it was just statistics. He believes the legendary Formula One driver, who has undergone two operations, will recover.

When a patient has such a serious injury, he may remain in a coma for weeks or even months, a German neurosurgeon said earlier. However, in such cases, it is hard to predict. Any developments are possible, he said.
Schumacher, the most successful Formula One driver of all time, the seven times world champion, hit his head on a rock when he fell while skiing in the French Alps on December 29. He has undergone surgery and remains in an artificial coma in stable condition.
