Consideration was given to the injury
distribution within the zones of the hand.
Overall, the mean medical and work-loss cost for an ED-treated nonfatal injury
(including both hospitalized patients and patients treated and released) was $15,211; among unintentional injuries, the mean cost was $14,685, whereas the mean cost of an assault injury
In an intervention study aimed at reducing the risk of injury
to fast-bowlers, Dennis et al.
Differences in injury
rates between young and adult Taekwondo athletes have been studied in the past, and Beis et al 2001 found that young competitors, male or female, were more likely to sustain injury
during competition than their adult counterparts.
(3) The health care costs for treating school injury
in the United States are estimated to be US$3.2 billion per year.
A470 - deaths, two; serious injury
, four; slight injury
, 66; total, 72.
Rationale to present this study while considering the health infrastructure and health budget, CT angiography and further endovascular management in case of penetrating neck injuries are not a frequently available option to our surgeons, so relying upon platysmal penetration and hard signs of vascular injury
to explore the neck wound can be a safe option.
The annual rate of concussion/ closed head injury
increased by almost 1600% from 1990 through 2014.
The researchers found that, compared to participants without any injury
, helmet wearers were less likely to sustain any head injury
(odds ratio for traumatic brain injury
, 0.65; odds ratio for other head injury
is mostly found during road traffic accidents, at home spillage of acid, bleach, detergents, toilet cleaners may cause eye injury
* Among the new claims without a past injury
, about 30 percent of them would have a second injury
in 10 years.
We summarized our experience in managing a patient who experienced reinjury caused by a primary injury
over the last decade and proposed the concept of a derived injury
Regarding anatomical location of mandibular fractures, 21 occurred at condyle, 4 at ramus, 59 at angle, 54 at the body, 49 parasym-physis, 43 symphysis, and total 7 cases were with cervical spine injury
. Road traffic accident was the major cause.
Record of each patient was evaluated and demography, mode and type of injury
, initial and final visual acuity, associated globe injuries, concomitant non-ocular injuries, type of surgical procedures and complications were endorsed on a pre-devised proforma.
A predesigned proforma was used to record patient's demographic details along with the cause, side, type and severity of injury
, ocular trauma score was also recorded at presentation.
