    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual Meeting of the Pacific Association of Pediatrics Surgeons. Maui, HI, USA, 1998/06/09.

    Background/Purpose 

    The aim of this study was to investigate driveway-related injuries in children, identify associated risk factors, and evaluate outcome compared with other mechanisms of blunt trauma.

    Methods 

    A 6-year review (1991 to 1996) of pediatric (age less than 18 years) pedestrian injuries treated at two urban trauma centers was conducted : one regional pediatric trauma center and one level I trauma center with pediatric commitment.

    Five hundred twenty-seven children injured in pedestrian accidents were identified from the trauma registry ; 51 children (10%) sustained traumatic injuries as a result of being struck in their driveway.

    Data are reported as mean ± SEM

    Results :

    Children less than 5 years of age In=41) had an injury severity score (ISS) of 12.3 ± 2.3,15 (37%) sustained closed head injury, 13 (37%) had torso trauma, 19 (46%) skeletal trauma, and eight (20%) died.

    Children >= 5 years old In=10) had an ISS of 10.7 ± 2.4, three (30%) sustained closed head injury, four (40%) torso trauma, six (60%) skeletal trauma, and none died.

    In contrast, all other pediatric pedestrian accidents analyzed over the same time period had a mortality rate of only 2% (11 of 476).

    Conclusions 

    Pediatric driveway trauma carries a significant risk of head injury and a 10-fold increase in mortality in children under 5 years of age when compared with all other pediatric pedestrian accidents. (...)
