Timing fracture repair in patients with severe brain injury (Glasgow Coma Scale score less than 9)



Timing fracture repair in patients with severe brain injury (Glasgow Coma Scale score less than 9)



Journal of Trauma Injury Infection and Critical Care 44(6): 977-983



Background: Trauma patients with severe brain injury are at risk of secondary brain injury. Femur fractures, if present, should be repaired when potential causes of secondary brain injury have been corrected. Methods: Sixty-one patients with severe or moderate closed head injury and femur fractures were identified. Patients were divided into groups by time until femur fracture reduction.
