High impact information on Facial Injuries

  • Over a 12 month period, 413 players were treated for hurling-related injuries at Cork Regional Hospital. While hand and facial trauma predominate, the proportion between the two sites has changed substantially from previous reports with a reduction in the level of facial injuries [1].
  • The C1 level injury had high association with severe and life threatening head and neck and facial injuries compared with the more frequently injured spinal levels; either C2 (P=0.03) or C5 (P=0.004) [2].
  • Patients with oral and facial injuries presenting as emergencies to the accident and emergency (A&E) unit at Arrowe Park Hospital have been used to compare the treatment method of direct referral to oral and maxillofacial surgery with that of the routine A&E procedure [3].
  • Of these patients, 33 were male and 19 of 21 ethanol levels measured were greater than 17 mmol/l. Head and facial injuries were the most frequent [4].
  • The injuries sustained are compared to see if the clinical impressions that BMX are more dangerous, and produce more facial injuries, are correct [5].
