American Society of Plastic Surgeons Donates Helmets to Local Public Schools

BALTIMORE, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) will donate 2,000 multi-sport helmets to the children of Baltimore to promote safety and prevent facial injuries and fractures. The event will be held at Federal Hill Preparatory School in Baltimore on Thursday, October 25, from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

Baltimore Deputy Mayor, Salima Siler Marriott, and Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPSS) Chief of Staff, Bennie E. Williams, will join ASPS President Roxanne Guy, MD, and other ASPS Member Surgeons for the donation ceremony.

"Every year ASPS Member Surgeons repair thousands of children's injuries from bike, skateboard, and scooter accidents and see firsthand how devastating they can be," said Dr. Guy. "It is equally important for us to aid in the prevention of these injuries as it is to repair them. Through this donation we hope to encourage more children to wear helmets to prevent serious brain injuries, lacerations and fractures."

An estimated 44.3 million people younger than 21 years old ride bikes in the United States. Each year, more than 500,000 people are treated in emergency rooms for bicycle-related injuries. Children 15 and younger accounted for an estimated 257,900 bicycle-related injuries in 2006.

Recreational skateboarding-related injuries among children are up 7 percent from 2004 to 2006. In 2006, an estimated 77,600 skateboard-related injuries occurred among children 15 and younger.

Scooters are another source of recreational sports injuries. Non-powered scooter-related injuries accounted for an estimated 38,400 injuries among children 15 or younger in 2006. Powered scooter-related injuries accounted for an estimated 3,700 emergency room visits in 2006 in this age group.

Many of these injuries could have been avoided or greatly reduced if proper protective gear had been worn. However,
