  1. The epidemiology of head injury in Cantabria.

    Article - En anglais

    The epidemiology of head injury was studied in Cantabria, Spain, using a methodological design consisting of a cross-selectional analysis of one year of duration and an additional one year follow-up of all the patients included in the initial sample.

    The 477 cases identified represent a rate of 91/100,000, with males showing a head injury rate 2.7 times higher that than for females.

    Sixty per cent of all cases involved traffic accidents, falls accounted for 24% and industrial accidents were the cause in 8%. The annual age-adjusted mortality rate was 19.7/100,000.

    Over 92% of all deaths occurred prior to hospital admission.
