    Article - En anglais

    Few injuries result in more profound and long-term disability than traumatic spinal cord injury.

    This study describes the demographic and epidemiologic characteristics of traumatic spinal cord injury among Oklahoma residents reported to the statewide, population-based surveillance system in 1988-1990; initial acute hospital and rehabilitation charges for 1989 are also included.

    There was a reported incidence rate of 40 per million population.

    Based on a reporting sensitivity of 77%, the « true » incidence of spinal cord injury was estimated to be 51 per million population.

    Motor vehicle crashes accounted for 48% of injuries.

    Males aged 15-29 years and blacks were at highest risk of injury.
