Abstract
Introduction: Traumas are one of the most common causes of morbidity and mortality all over the world, especially in developing countries. The economic and social burdens of the disease vastly affect both developed and developing countries in different ways. Although the importance of this issue is obvious, there are few documentations about the characteristics of trauma patients in Iran. This study aimed to evaluate the characteristics of trauma patients referred to orthopedic center in Tabriz, Iran, during 2015. Methods: Eight hundred twenty-one patients with trauma that needed orthopedic interventions were studied in this cross-sectional study during 2015 in Tabriz. Age, sex, trauma type and date were collected and analyzed by SPSS. Results: From 821 patients, 70.9% were male. Most of the patients were referred in summer (33.6%) in June (11.6%). The mean age was 40.67 ± 20.4 with a tendency toward young ages (skewness = 0.28). The most common trauma types were car accidents (54.8%) and falling traumas (33.5%). Falling trauma was higher among females (42.31% vs 31.91%). Car accidents increased in cold seasons of the year. Most falling traumas were in spring and summer. Falling increased with increase in age while bicycle and motorcycle accidents decreased. Conclusion: According to high incidence of traffic injuries, an integrated multidisciplinary intervention to reduce the rate of traumas and their burden is essential.
