  1. Facial injuries from falling : age-dependent characteristics.

    Article - En anglais

    A retrospective analysis was undertaken of 108 patients with facial injuries from falling who presented at the Plastic Surgery Unit of the Toyo-oka Public Hospital from 1988 to 1990.

    Facial injuries from falling were common in little children, in those <6 years of age comprising 45.4% of injuries.

    Age-dependent characteristic injury sites were found (i.e., in those <2 years old, the forehead; in small children, the chin; in students, the lip; and in older persons, the cheek); this disparity can be explained by the mechanism of injury.

    The injury pattern also depended on age, varying activities, and tissue strength.

    In children of <6 years of age, small lacerations on the forehead or chin were most common, but even conservative treatment could achieve good results.
