Bicycle handlebar injuries in children



Bicycle handlebar injuries in children



Journal of Pediatric Surgery 21(2): 118-119

A mean delay of 23 hours existed between the accident and hospital presentation, and a mean hospital stay of 22 days resulted from a variety of serious intra-abdominal injuries. Handlebar injuries must be considered potentially serious, no matter how trivial the accident appears.
