Disease relevance of Neck Injuries


High impact information on Neck Injuries

  • Pain-free remissions, which usually lasted 2 weeks, ceased after a mild neck injury, but the headaches responded promptly to indomethacin [3].
  • CONCLUSION: Selective management of penetrating neck injuries is safe and does not mandate routine diagnostic testing for asymptomatic patients with injuries in zones II and III [4].
  • Head and neck injuries in soccer. Impact of minor trauma [5].
  • The nonhelmeted patients had higher Injury Severity Scores (11.9 vs 7.02), sustained head/neck injuries more frequently (41.7 vs 24.1%), and had lower Glasgow Coma Scores (13.73 vs 14.51) [6].
  • All patients that died had significant head and neck injuries (AIS > or = 3) [7].

Chemical compound and disease context of Neck Injuries


Biological context of Neck Injuries


Gene context of Neck Injuries

  • Non-ejected patients suffered mostly from head and neck injuries (50%) of which 9% were severe (head and neck AIS > or = 4, P < 0.05) [11].
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome or trigger finger associated with neck injury in automobile accidents [12].
  • The deterioration of MS bore no direct relationship with the severity of neck injury [13].
  • Soft tissue neck injuries resulting from strangulation by ligature or manual strangulation were examined immunohistochemically using antibodies to myoglobin, fibronectin, C5b-9 and MRP14, and compared to controls consisting of accidental soft tissue neck injuries as well as undamaged neck soft tissue [14].
  • We reviewed the real and potential ocular problems in all head and neck injuries at a tertiary care and regional trauma center from April of 1994 to March of 1995 [15].
