Injuries to riders in the cross country phase of eventing: the importance of protective equipment. (1/219)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the distribution of injuries in the eventing discipline of equestrian sports and the effectiveness of the protective equipment worn. METHODS: Data on all injuries sustained in the cross country phase over fixed obstacles were collected from 54 days of competition from 1992 to 1997. This involved 16,940 rides. RESULTS: Data on a total of 193 injuries were collected, which included two deaths. This represents an injury rate of 1.1%. Head and facial injuries represented the largest group (31%), with one third of these requiring treatment in hospital. All riders were wearing protective helmets and body protectors. CONCLUSIONS: Eventing is one of the most dangerous equestrian sports. Improved protective equipment, which is mandatory for 1999, should reduce the severity of these injuries.  (+info)

The "burner": a common nerve injury in contact sports. (2/219)

A "burner" is a common nerve injury resulting from trauma to the neck and shoulder, usually during sports participation. The injury is most often caused by traction or compression of the upper trunk of the brachial plexus or the fifth or sixth cervical nerve roots. Burners are typically transient, but they can cause prolonged weakness resulting in time loss from athletic participation. Furthermore, they often recur. Treatment consists of restoring range of motion, improving strength and providing protective equipment. Return to sports participation depends primarily on reestablishment of pain-free motion and full recovery of strength and functional status.  (+info)

Surgical emphysema and pneumomediastinum in a child following minor blunt injury to the neck. (3/219)

Largyngotracheal and pharyngoesophageal tears following minor blunt trauma to the neck are uncommon. A child with such an injury is reported and the modes of diagnosis and management are discussed. Patients may initially present with minimal signs and symptoms, but their condition may deteriorate rapidly or insidiously. In the absence of respiratory compromise, conservative management is appropriate, but all patients with significant blunt neck trauma should undergo early direct laryngoscopy under a general anaesthetic.  (+info)

Management of penetrating cervicomediastinal venous trauma. (4/219)

OBJECTIVES: to evaluate the results of management of penetrating cervicomediastinal venous trauma. DESIGN: retrospective study. Materials forty-nine consecutive patients with cervical and thoracic venous injuries treated at a tertiary hospital between 1991 and 1997. Method patients identified from a computerised database and data extracted from case records. RESULTS: forty-five patients were male and the mean age was 25.3 years. Forty injuries were due to stabs and 9 to gunshots. 22 patients were shocked, 25 actively bleeding and 31 were anaemic. Veins injured were internal jugular in 25, subclavian in 15, brachiocephalic in 6, and superior vena cava in 3. Injured veins were ligated in 25 cases and repaired by lateral suture in 22. No complex repairs were performed. There were 8 perioperative deaths and 5 cases of transient postoperative oedema. Venous ligation was not associated with increased risk of postoperative oedema. CONCLUSIONS: ligation is an acceptable form of treatment of cervicomediastinal venous injuries in the presence of haemodynamic instability, or where complex methods of repair would otherwise be necessary.  (+info)

Incidence, site, and nature of injuries in amateur rugby league over three consecutive seasons. (5/219)

OBJECTIVES: To report the incidence, site, and nature of injuries in amateur rugby league over three consecutive seasons. METHODS: Six hundred players registered with an amateur rugby league organisation were studied over three consecutive seasons. All injuries sustained during the amateur rugby league matches were recorded. Information recorded included the date and time of injury, name of injured player, anatomical site and nature of injury, and position of the player. RESULTS: The incidence of injury was 160.6 per 1000 player-position game hours, with forwards having a significantly higher incidence of injury than backs (182.3 per 1000 v 142.0 per 1000, chi2 = 14.60, df = 1, p<0.001). Over 25% of the total injuries (40.6 per 1000) sustained during the three year period were to the head and neck, while injuries to the face (21.3 per 1000, 13.3%), abdomen and thorax (21.3 per 1000, 13.3%), and knee (17.8 per 1000, 11.1%) were less common (chi2 = 21.83, df = 8, p<0.01). Muscular injuries (haematomas and strains) were the most common type of injury (45.7 per 1000, 28.5%, chi2 = 17.98, df = 7, p<0.05). Significantly more injuries occurred in the latter stages of the season (chi2 = 22.94, df = 1, p<0.001), with most injuries (70.8%, chi2 = 162.29, df = 1, p<0.001) sustained in the second half of matches. CONCLUSIONS: The results show that muscular injuries and injuries to the head and neck are the most commonly sustained injuries in amateur rugby league. Furthermore, injuries are more often sustained in the latter stages of the season and during the second half of matches. These findings suggest that fatigue or accumulative microtrauma, or both, may contribute to injuries in amateur rugby league players.  (+info)

Continued experience with physical examination alone for evaluation and management of penetrating zone 2 neck injuries: results of 145 cases. (6/219)

PURPOSE: Our preliminary experience with physical examination alone in the evaluation of penetrating zone 2 neck injuries for vascular trauma was previously reported in 28 patients over a 2-year period (1991-1993). The purpose of the current study was to examine the results of this approach in a much larger group of patients over an 8-year period. METHODS: The medical records for all patients admitted to our level I trauma center (all of them entered into our prospective protocol) between December 1991 and April 1999 with penetrating zone 2 neck trauma were reviewed for their initial presentation and any documented vascular injury. RESULTS: A total of 145 patients made up the study group; in 30 of these patients, the penetrating trajectory also traversed zone 1 or 3. Thirty-one patients (21%) had hard signs of vascular injury (active bleeding, expanding hematoma, bruit/thrill, pulse deficit, central neurologic deficit) and were taken immediately to the operating room; 28 (90%) of these 30 patients had either major arterial or venous injuries requiring operative repair (the false-positive rate for physical examination thus being 10%). Of the 114 patients with no hard signs, 23 underwent arteriography because of proximity of the injury to the vertebral arteries or because the trajectory included another zone. Of these 23 arteriograms, three showed abnormalities, but only one required operative repair. This case had no complications relating to the initial delay. The remaining 91 patients with no hard signs were observed without imaging or surgery for a minimum of 23 hours, and none had any evidence of vascular injury during hospitalization or during the initial 2-week follow-up period (1/114; false-negative rate for physical examination, 0.9%). CONCLUSIONS: This series confirms the earlier report indicating that patients with zone 2 penetrating neck wounds can be safely and accurately evaluated by physical examination alone to confirm or exclude vascular injury. The missed-injury rate is 0.7% (1/145) with this approach, which is comparable to arteriography in accuracy but less costly and noninvasive. Long-term follow-up is needed to confirm this management option.  (+info)

Foreign body in injury--an important evidence. (7/219)

In the present paper, a complete case is discussed, that is from the crime upto judgement in the court of law, from the Forensic point of view. The postmortem examination was conducted by the author in which a metallic fragment of size of a mustard seed was found in a incised wound. On chemical analyzers examination, the metal fragment matched with the suspected weapon, in respect of spectrochemical contents. This evidence became an important part in the investigation for conviction of the accused in the court of law. This indicates that when-ever any foreign body, whatever it may be or of whatever size, should not be neglected while examining the injury before death of after death, since it can become an important piece of evidence.  (+info)

Penetrating neck injuries: analysis of experience from a Canadian trauma centre. (8/219)

OBJECTIVE: To study the demographics and treatment outcome of penetrating neck injuries presenting to a major trauma centre in order to develop a treatment protocol. DESIGN: A case review. SETTING: A trauma centre at a tertiary care institution. PATIENTS: One hundred and thirty consecutive patients who had 134 neck wounds penetrating the platysma and presented to the trauma service between 1979 and 1997. INTERVENTION: Surgical exploration or observation alone. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The location of injury, patient management, number of significant injuries, duration of hospital stay and outcome. RESULTS: Injuries were caused by stab wounds in 124 patients (95%) and gunshot wounds in 6 (5%). The location of injury was zone I (lower neck) in 20 cases (15%), zone II (midportion of the neck) in 108 (81%) and zone III (upper neck) in 5 (4%). The location was not recorded in 1 case. Fifty patients were managed by observation alone and 80 were managed surgically. Neck exploration in 48 asymptomatic patients was negative in 32 (67%). Significant injuries, including major vascular (12), nerve (13) and aerodigestive tract (19) injuries, were identified in 34 patients. Two of the 130 patients (1.5%) died of major vascular injuries. Seventy-six percent of significant injuries, including all zone II major vascular injuries, were symptomatic on presentation. The mean (and standard deviation) hospital stay for asymptomatic patients treated with observation alone and surgical exploration was similar (3.5 [6.02] versus 4.3 [5.46] days respectively, p = 0.575). Long-term disability, all neurologic in nature, was documented in 3 patients managed by observation alone and 6 patients managed by surgical exploration. CONCLUSIONS: Penetrating neck trauma, in particular stab wounds to zone II in asymptomatic patients, is associated with low morbidity and mortality. A selective management protocol with investigations directed by symptoms is the most appropriate approach for the patient population and resource base in this setting.  (+info)

Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa missed the entire 2017 season with a neck injury and it looks like the Jets wideout is going to miss the final 15 games of this season for the same reason.. Brian Costello of the New York Post reported on Wednesday morning that Enunwa will miss the rest of the year after suffering another neck injury against the Bills in Week One. Head coach Adam Gase confirmed the news at his press conference a bit later in the morning.. Enunwa signed a four-year, $36 million extension with the team this offseason, but one has to wonder if Enunwa will be playing again after a second serious neck injury in three years.. The news comes a day after the Jets traded a 2021 sixth-round pick to the Patriots for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. While head coach Adam Gases criticism of wideouts seemed to explain that move, Enunwas injury makes the need for outside help at receiver even clearer.. Enunwa has been with the Jets since 2014 and has 119 catches, 1,617 yards and five touchdowns ...
The purpose of this investigation is to apply the neck injury criterion (NIC) Criterion to data measured in human subject tests. 70 volunteer tests and 28 cadaver tests were analyzed in order to investigate the movement of the human spine. The NIC was calculated for all these tests and compared to other data that could be of interest for neck injuries (for instance angular acceleration of the head). It is concluded that the NIC in conjunction with other parameters is a useful indicator for the prediction of neck injuries following rear end impacts.

Trauma is life-threatening injury. Head and neck trauma can occur from numerous causes of injury. Motor vehicle collisions, physical assault, industrial accidents, and sports injuries are all common causes of head and neck trauma.
Another top cause of a neck injury is a slip and fall accident, as well as a fall from a high surface (most common in the construction industry). A slip and fall or a fall from height can cause serious damage to the neck, sometimes damage that is much worse than a whiplash injury. One of the most severe injuries that can result from a slip and fall (and which can also result from a car accident), is a fracture of the cervical spine. The cervical spine is the upper spine, or the bones found in your neck. Not only are these types of fractures painful, but they can be very dangerous too, even causing permanent injury or paralysis.. ...

You may even be able to claim if you have an existing neck condition, which has been aggravated or made worse as a result of an accident.. ...
Whiplash is one of the most common types of neck injuries in the world. The most common cause behind whiplash is a car accident, particularly when someone has been inside a motor vehicle that has been struck from behind by another car. During this type of car accident, the car in the front whips forward at an accelerated speed before stopping suddenly; this causes the body, particularly the head at the top of the spine, to undergo a motion similar to the cracking of the tip of a whip. This motion damages the soft tissues in the neck, resulting in the injury known as whiplash. Whiplash can also occur in any situation that causes this whip-like motion, such as carnival rides.. Whiplash can cause a variety of problems, including: stiffness, dizziness, headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, injuries to the muscles, and difficulty concentrating.. ...
Dynamic performance tests are conducted to assess the neck injury risk. To date seats are assessed based on sled tests mostly using a BioRID which is based on the 50%ile male anthropometry.

FAQs from injury lawyers on whiplash and soft tissue neck injuries that are often suffered by auto accident victims, especially after rear-end collisions.
In 2009, a backlash to the libel suit filed by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) against Simon Singh, has inspired the filing of formal complaints of false advertising against more than 500 individual chiropractors within one 24-hour period,[199][200] prompting the McTimoney Chiropractic Association to write to its members advising them to remove leaflets that make claims about whiplash and colic from their practice, to be wary of new patients and telephone inquiries, and telling their members: If you have a website, take it down NOW. and Finally, we strongly suggest you do NOT discuss this with others, especially patients.[199] An editorial in Nature has suggested that the BCA may be trying to suppress debate and that this use of British libel law is a burden on the right to freedom of expression, which is protected by the European Convention on Human Rights.[201] The libel case ended with the BCA withdrawing its suit in 2010.[202][203 ...

Tampa Bay linebacker Quincy Black was hospitalized for observation of a neck injury Sunday after being carted off the field during the third quarter of the Buccaneers 34-24 victory over the San Diego Chargers. Black was injured tackling running back Ryan Mathews for a 1-yard loss, remaining on the ground with just less than four minutes left in the quarter. The Bucs did not release specific details about the injury, but head coach Greg Schiano said the sixth-year pro is expected to be OK. Schiano was the head coach at Rutgers when former Scarlet Knights player Eric LeGrand broke two vertebrae and suffered a serious spinal cord injury in October 2010 during a kickoff return against Army. Schiano said thoughts of the paralyzed defensive lineman went through his mind when Black remained on the ground.

Stingers and burners (named for the way they feel) are temporary injuries to the nerve root or brachial plexus. They occur most often in football players (especially tacklers) and other contact sport athletes. They may be caused either by an abrupt tilt of the head or when the head and shoulder are forced in opposite directions at the same time. Symptoms include burning, stinging, numbness/weakness, or an electrical sensation down one arm. You may feel a warm sensation along with the other symptoms. If a stinger or burner is severe or lasts longer than a few minutes, see a doctor. If you are an athlete with stenosis, your risk is higher and your doctor may suggest that you retire from your sport to avoid a catastrophic neck injury.. ...

How Do Neck injuries from Car Accidents Affect Your Health? - Carrollton, TX. One of the most common injuries that occur during a car accident is a neck injury. Neck injuries can easily happen during car accidents due to the great force of impact that occurs when a vehicle crashes. If you have suffered a neck injury during an automobile accident, it can cause a lot of negative impacts on your life. Here is a closer look at how car accidents cause neck injuries and how to treat them.. How Auto Accident Cause Injuries to the Neck. One of the most common ways that people suffer injuries during car accidents is whiplash. When a car is stopped suddenly by the result of impact, the head whips forward as the body remains stationary due to being buckled in by the seatbelt. When the head violently pitches forward in this manner, it can cause strain and tears on the neck muscles. In severe accidents, the vertebra of the neck can actually be thrown out of alignment. This causes severe pain and ...
The goals of the NEXUS Low-Risk Criteria and Canadian Cervical Spine Rule are to identify trauma patients with low probabilities of cervical spine injury, thereby sparing them unnecessary cervical spine imaging.2,8,9,12 To meet the NEXUS criteria, a patient must have the following: no tenderness at the posterior midline of the cervical spine, no focal neurologic deficit, normal level of alertness, no evidence of intoxication, and no clinically apparent painful injury that might distract him or her from the pain of a cervical spine injury.8 The Canadian Cervical Spine Rule uses 3 high-risk criteria (age 65 years or older, dangerous mechanism, paresthesias in extremities), 5 low-risk criteria (simple rear-end motor vehicle crash, sitting position in the emergency department, ambulatory at any time, delayed onset of neck pain, absence of midline C-spine tenderness), and the ability of patients to actively rotate their necks, to determine the need for cervical spine radiography.9 Both the NEXUS ...
The spinal cord is a fibrous structure, which is housed in the bony confines of the spinal column. Spinal cord injury occurs almost exclusively as the result of major trauma. Motor vehicle accidents, diving injuries, falls, and gunshot wounds make up a large portion of these incidents. Review the neck injury: (general) section for important information concerning spinal cord injury. The spinal cord is protected by the bone structure, known as vertebrae. The vertebrae are stacked on top of one another and fastened by ligaments. Muscles overlay this framework and provide dynamic structural support. Common symptoms of spinal cord injury range from numbness, tingling, or weakness in an extremity, to total inability to move (paralysis). Severe spinal cord injury can result in respiratory arrest, particularly when the cord damage is high up toward the neck. The higher up the cord damage, the more it will involve ALL the extremities and interfere with normal bodily functions, such as blood ...
Back and neck injuries are some of the most common types of injuries that occur during vehicle accidents. They are often seen in rear-end and head-on collisions and many times result in whiplash and other neck and back injuries.. These events often appear immediately, but in some instances, it takes days or even weeks for these injuries to rear their ugly heads. In North Carolina, many people have reported having some type of spinal related pain in their life, with many of them reporting the pain starting after a car accident. If you have suffered neck or back injuries due to a car accident, you need experienced legal representation on your side.. Common Reasons for Neck and Back Injuries. While some of the most severe neck and back injuries occur after a motor vehicle accident, some other causes of spinal injuries may include the following:. ...
Previous studies have suggested injury assessment reference values (IARVs) for lower neck injury based on scaled upper neck values. This study developed independent flexion and extension IARVs for the lower neck by matching Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD) data to impact-tested post-mortem human subjects (PMHSs) with mid- to low-cervical spine injuries. Pendulum and sled tests with Hybrid III midsize male and small female ATDs were run under conditions mimicking those of published PMHS torso drop-sled tests and other PMHS studies. Measurements included upper and lower neck forces and moments, head acceleration, head rotation rate, and head/neck angles for the pendulum tests. Rear impacts corresponding to rigid seatback tests without a head restraint produced lower neck extension moments that increased dramatically with test severity, as measured by increasing delta-V and/or decreasing pulse duration. In contrast, upper neck extension moments increased only modestly with test severity, and all ...
Injuries to the head and neck are common in sports. Sideline physicians must be attentive and prepared with an organized approach to detect and manage these injuries. Because head and neck injuries often occur simultaneously, the sideline physician can combine the head and neck evaluations. When assessing a conscious athlete, the physician initially evaluates the neck for spinal cord injury and determines whether the athlete can be moved safely to the sideline for further evaluation. This decision is made using an on-field assessment of the athletes peripheral sensation and strength, as well as neck tenderness and range of motion. If these evaluations are normal, axial loading and Spurling testing can be performed. Once the neck has been determined to be normal, the athlete can be assisted to the sideline for assessment of concussion symptoms and severity. This assessment should include evaluations of the athletes reported symptoms, recently acquired memory, and postural stability. Injured athletes

This chapter, found in the back pain section of the book, provides a succinct synopsis of a key study validating the Canadian C-spine rule for imaging the cervical spine in alert and stable trauma patients. This summary outlines the study methodology and design, major results, limitations and criticisms, related studies and additional information, and clinical implications. The study shows that the Canadian C-Spine Rule may be able to identify a large group of alert and stable adult trauma patients for whom cervical spine imaging is unnecessary. It may also help to standardize the appropriate use of cervical spine imaging in the emergency department. In addition to outlining the most salient features of the study, a clinical vignette and imaging example are included in order to provide relevant clinical context.
Penetrating neck injuries are stressful events for surgeons. The risk of iatrogenic damage to surrounding structures is high and makes flawless knowledge of the neck anatomy mandatory. K-wire migration into the cervical spine after fixation of a fractured clavicle is rare. Apart from injury to the vertebral artery, it may cause damage to the nerve roots, dura mater, and spinal cord. When such material penetrates the vertebral canal, a wide laminectomy is required to expose both ends of the K-wire, followed by dura mater repair and hemostasis [4, 5]. In the presented case there was a risk of causing injury to the vertebral artery while removing the K-wire. Mwipatayi et al. never attempted to repair the vertebral artery in cases with such an injury. In all cases the vessel was ligated, clipped or hemostasis was attained using bone wax [6].. In general, the vertebral artery can be divided in four anatomical segments: V1 to V4 [14, 15]. Care must be taken to account for anatomical variations of ...
Few emergencies pose as great a challenge as neck trauma. Because a multitude of organ systems (eg, airway, vascular, neurological, gastrointestinal) are compressed into a compact conduit, a single penetrating wound is capable of considerable harm.

Background Optimization of CT radiation dose is important for children due to their higher risk of radiation-induced adverse effects. Anatomical structures with high inherent contrast, such as bones can be imaged at very low radiation doses by optimizing scan parameters. Purpose To assess feasibility of sub-milliSievert whole spine CT scanning protocol for evaluation of scoliosis in children. Material and Methods With approval of the ethical board, we performed whole spine CT for evaluation of scoliosis in 22 children (age range, 3-18 years; mean age, 13 years; 13 girls, 9 boys) on a 128-slice dual source multidetector-row CT scanner. Lowest possible quality reference mAs value (image quality factor for xy-z automatic exposure control or xyz-AEC, CARE Dose 4D) was selected on a per patient basis. Remaining parameters were held constant at 3.0:1 pitch, 128 × 0.6 mm detector collimation, 115.2 mm table feed per gantry rotation, 100 kVp, and 1 and 3 mm reconstructed sections. Average mAs, ...
