  1. Multiple chop wounds in Hong Kong : An epidemiological study of an unusual injury.

    Article - En anglais

    Knife injuries can be classified into stabbing injuries and multiple laceration or multiple chops, the latter being much more common in Chinese communities.

    It is the mark of criminal gang attacks with their tendency to use long knives and choppers rather than guns.

    The intention is often to wound rather than kill.

    A survey of 89 cases revealed that 90% of the victims are men, with a mean age of 27 years ; 75% was admitted to the hospital at night, and in 78% of the cases the assailants were persons unknown, or so we were told by the victims.

    The reasons for the attacks were also not given.

    Most of the women victims were assaulted by their spouse.

    Some 74% of the patients suffered three to six lacerations ; 62% of the injuries were on the extensor surfaces of the upper limbs, while the hand and the back of the trunk were also common sites.

    The type of management differs from that for stabbing injuries.

    There were no fatalities, and less than half of the patients required blood transfusion.

    The average hospital stay was 6.2 days.

    The morbidity of these injuries involves damaged tendons and nerves.
