Traffic Accident


Presentation

  • BACKGROUND: The present study was undertaken to analyze the pattern, presentation and management of peripheral vascular injuries due to road traffic accidents (RTA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Forty two patients (68.9%) presented after one week of injury. No patient presented within the first six hours of injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of pediatric RTA presenting to a Nigerian referral center.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • PTSD, as assessed with the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale, was present in 10 (10.8%) participants at 6 months follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Three case vignettes are presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Wound Infection
  • Wound infection and thrombosis of the graft were the most important complication. Amputation rate was 4.68%. CONCLUSION: Vascular injury due to RTA requires prompt recognition and referral to a vascular center.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sleep Apnea
  • RESULTS: Prevalence of previous road accidents, sleepiness while driving, and obstructive sleep apnea scored 3 in the study, and drivers accounted for 23.8%, 29%, and 24.8%, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • STUDY OBJECTIVES: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with an increased risk of motor vehicle accidents (MVAs).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Thrombosis
  • Wound infection and thrombosis of the graft were the most important complication. Amputation rate was 4.68%. CONCLUSION: Vascular injury due to RTA requires prompt recognition and referral to a vascular center.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Knee Pain
  • The patient felt the knee pain alleviated after surgery However, the joint dysfunction was aggravated even more. The patient used the legal procedure for personal compensation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Right Ventricular Hypertrophy
  • Moreover, histologically, we observed changes due to his congenital heart disease, such as right ventricular hypertrophy, heart failure cells in the lungs, sclerosis of the liver, and hyaline degeneration in the kidney.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Orthodontic treatment is useful for occlusal reconstruction after a traumatic injury, and autotransplantation is an effective option for these patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] on arrival, treatment, duration of hospitalization before death, challenges, and postmortem findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The medical records of these patients were reviewed and analyzed to determine clinical characteristics, treatments, and outcomes of traffic accident-related facial trauma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Possible aetiologies for the aneurysm and a brief revision of clinical aspects and treatment are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Surgical treatment of buried penis achieves marked aesthetic and functional improvement, and benefits the majority of patients, resulting in satisfactory erection and successful sexual intercourse.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • In additional to history, clinical manifestation, and prognosis, evaluating the distribution of hypointense lesions in susceptibility-weighted imaging could be useful to differentiate these 2 conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These persons tend to have high levels of hyperarousal and re-experiencing symptoms but few or no symptoms of avoidance or emotional numbing. 4, 7, 8, 13, 14 In general, these persons have a better prognosis for symptom remission at six months than persons[aafp.org]

Etiology

  • A nonsurgical etiology may account for up to about 10% of the causes of pneumoperitoneum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This pattern of etiologic factors is in accordance with data from most developing countries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • This paper presents a literature review of epidemiological data relevant to traffic accidents of children, including their personality and behavioral predisposition, social factors, association with risk taking behavior, rehabilitation, and incidence[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND: Fractures in pediatrics show epidemiological characteristics which are different from fractures in adults.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Patients' background factors, injury severity, scores on the Impact of Events Scale-Revised (IES-R), the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression (CES-D) Scale, and the Satisfaction With Life Quality (SWLQ) Scale were recorded.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Motorcycle (27%) and bicycle riders (25%) had the greater risk for UEF (P CONCLUSIONS: This study contributes the largest database on reported adult UEFs related to all mechanisms of injury in RTAs and finds the comparative epidemiology of associated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Epidemiological data regarding traffic accident-related facial trauma are important and useful not only for decisions about patient care and developing optimal treatment regimens but to develop new methods to prevent injuries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sex distribution
Age distribution

Prevention

  • This study lays the foundation for improving access to PR for TA survivors, an issue of quality of care that results in preventable disabilities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Occupational exposure history and workplace environmental sanitation are crucial for the prevention of this potentially fatal yet preventable infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • For the purpose of injury prevention, we also examined traffic accident cases in a micro study using engineering-based medicine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: Pediatric RTA deaths in this study were due mainly to preventable causes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The anatomic location of the eyeball within the socket and the resilience of the globe to pressure force, attachment to extraocular muscles and optic nerve prevents luxation during trauma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
