August 23, 2021 Medicine and Medical 0

The current study was a prospective analysis of head injury victims admitted to a tertiary care centre. This study includes cases with a history of head injury who are admitted to the hospital. This study excludes instances that were brought to the hospital dead and had other visceral injuries aside from the brain. The current study was conducted from November 2011 to October 2013 in the department of forensic medicine and toxicology at Indira Gandhi Government Medical College in Nagpur. The goal of this study was to determine the age and gender distribution of head injury cases, as well as the type of skull fracture and cerebral hemorrage, and the time to survival. The most typically involved age group in the current study was 21 to 30 years old, with males outnumbering females. The most prevalent cause of head injury was a car accident, which was followed by a fall from a height and assault in 103 cases. The majority of the cases (61 of them) died within the first 24 hours after being admitted. The most prevalent type of skull fracture identified in this investigation was a fissured (linear) fracture (41.35 percent cases). The most common bone implicated was the temporal bone. The most prevalent types of cerebral haemorrhages seen in this study are subdural and subarachnoid haemorrhages.
