Date:5/29/2013

Philadelphia, Pa. (May 29, 2013) Facial fractures are relatively common, and potentially serious, sports-related injuries among children participating in a wide range of sports, according to a study in the June issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

The five-year study provides insights into the characteristics of sports-related facial fractures in young athletesincluding the causes and patterns of fractures in specific sports. "These data may allow targeted or sport-specific craniofacial fracture injury prevention strategies," write Dr. Lorelei Grunwaldt and colleagues of Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

Sports-Related Facial Fractures in Kids: Patient and Injury Characteristics

The researchers analyzed 167 children and adolescents with sports-related fractures seen at their hospital's emergency department from 2000 to 2005. Of all facial fractures in children treated during that time, 10.6 percent were sports-related.

About 80 percent of the injured patients were boys; nearly two-thirds were between 12- and 15-years-old. Nasal fractures accounted for about 40 percent of the injuries, 34 percent were fractures around the eye, and skull fractures accounted for 31 percent.

Although the injuries were not critical, many were quite serious. Approximately 45 percent of the patients were hospitalized, including 15 percent admitted to the intensive care unit. About 10 percent lost consciousness. Four percent of the children had more severe "level I" traumaunstable airway or vital signs, or spinal cord injury.

Approximately 45 percent of fractures occurred when the child was hit by a ballmost often when attempting to catch it. Collisions with another player were the second most
