Depressed skull fracture

735.1i - head trauma - skull fracture
735.2 - head trauma - skull fracture 2

A 31-year-old male presented to the ER after falling from a 3-meter wall. He fell on his face and is complaining of face pain and body aches. He isn’t sure if he lost consciousness. GCS 15/15. Not much history was taken from the patient as he was in excruciating pain. Vitals HR: 105 bpm, RR: 19 bpm, BP: 106/59, Ox. Sat: 100%, Temp: 36.9.

This case is a kind of unusual. Having this amount of depression of the skull and showing almost no neurological abnormality is not happening very frequent.

We hope that you also recognized the air inside in the right image.

Seat Belt Sign

722.1 - seat belt sign 1

A 32 years old male was involved in an MVC where he was in the front seat as a passenger and had his seatbelt on. It was a direct front collision. The patient is stable. He is in moderate pain. Displacement of the lower part of the sternum as well as a retrosternal hematoma was noted after the ED care.

Trauma care is very important as globally recognized. It is also important to prevent injury. Seat belts are doing their part to prevent further injury. However, they may not be protective, or even cause injury if the other prevention measures were not applied such as speed limit.

This case shows dramatic skin lesions caused by the seatbelt. You can see various images of this in the clinical image archive (just click the image). What seatbelt sign says to us? INVESTIGATE FURTHER INNER INJURY… This patient has neck, chest, abdomen skin findings. Therefore, vascular injuries (aorta, vein), viscus injuries (perforation, bleeding), solid organ lacerations (spleen, liver, pancreas), contusions (cardiac) in the neck, chest, and abdomen should be investigated.
